Chocolate Twist

Chocolate Twist

Chicago, Illinois

Chocolate Twist is the creation of Kate Coffey, Queen of the Twist, in 2009. As a child, Kate was captivated by her grandmothers’ ability to cook and bake seemingly effortlessly. Nana Coffey was famous for her homemade bread, cookies and biscuits. Nonni Bruno could put up a pot of pasta gravy faster than anyone. All the while, Kate’s beloved grandmothers would carry on conversation, laugh with family, enjoy a little wine and never break a sweat. Kate was hooked. And hungry.

Kate received her Baking and Pastry Certificate at Kendall College, Chicago. After several years of work in the food and non-profit sectors, Kate decided in 2009 to listen to her heart. Named for Kate’s favorite ingredient and a nod to the meandering streets of her hometown, Riverside, Illinois, Chocolate Twist was born. 

Chocolate Twist has a dedicated following. Twistheads, as they’re known, know their confections and don’t settle for pretentious or overbearing candy. They love their caramels especially and don’t hesitate to proclaim their unwavering affection. One Twisthead put it best when she shamelessly said “they are the best thing I’ve ever put in my mouth.” ‘Nuff said. 

Kate’s culinary philosophy is simple. Make tasty food. Make it approachable. Make it fun. And at the end of the day - after we’ve made tasty, approachable and fun food--do something good with it. We are proud to partner with our favorite charities to foster inclusiveness, diversity and outreach.
