History of KOHLER Original Recipe Chocolates
The KOHLER Original Recipe Chocolates story begins with turtles, and not just an ordinary turtle – a complex blend of chocolate; smoky, burnt caramel and finished with salted pecans hand-picked for their size and perfection. The turtle that went through rigorous testing, many recipe tweaks and extensive sampling was perfected by the renowned chefs at Destination Kohler and blessed by Kohler Co. Executive Chairman, Herbert V. Kohler, Jr., to launch KOHLER Original Recipe Chocolates in 2007.

Today, the original Terrapins have become the foundation for a thriving chocolates business that refuses to clutter the marketplace, and seeks to explore limitless opportunity in taste with natural raw ingredients. The Terrapins have since been expanded into four delicious varieties and the company has continued to diversify its line of chocolates.

In 2016, Kohler Co. entered a new market with the launch of the KOHLER Original Recipe Chocolates Brandy; the spirit is naturally infused with Kohler’s dark chocolate, providing an unmatched spirits taste and experience.
