Sweet Mona’s Chocolates – We sweeten the world one chocolate at a time
Located in the picturesque seaside village of Langley, WA on Whidbey Island in the Salish Sea with views of snowcapped mountains in the distance there is one of Washington’s best kept secrets – Sweet Mona’s Chocolates. Built on a firm foundation of passion, experience, and desire Sweet Mona’s creates extraordinary confections in small batches using only the finest quality ingredients—European style butter, chocolate made in the Belgian tradition with cacao grown in Ecuador and Venezuela, heavy cream from a regional creamery, and cane sugar.
Sweet Mona’s Chocolate Boutique originally opened on February 17th, 2006 as 1 Angel Place, Chocolate Bar. With each new challenge Sweet Mona’s Chocolates has grown into a thriving gourmet specialty chocolate shop with a full beverage bar, including espresso and bubble tea and expanded gelato offerings, including shakes and sundaes.
Soon to be celebrating eleven years in Langley Sweet Mona’s has grown through record breaking retail sales, wholesale relationships through Seattle Chocolates, DandyLines Distributors, and several locations throughout Whidbey Island. Seattle Chocolates touts the caramels as Best. Caramel. Ever. being sold under their J Co Co branding.
A graduate of Ecole Chocolat in Vancouver, BC, Mona Newbauer continues to meet life's challenges with an open heart and keen eye. Always experimenting with new recipes and product ideas, this little jewel of a shop has expanded from its humble beginnings of selling its famously delicious handmade truffles at the local Farmers’ Market to a bustling cafe that offers such staples as espressos, lattes, Italian sodas, gelato, and of course, chocolate.
Busting out at the seams from its first little storefront to the current space the shop now occupies in the heart of this idyllic coastal town, all visitors and guests who stop by can't help but feel the contagious excitement that Mona and her shop exudes - her happiness for life, its mysteries (and discoveries along the way), as well as her unending devotion to offering the very best in handmade chocolates.
“Our greatest joy comes from our relationship with our customers and our ability to bring them wonderful chocolates in a loving and friendly retail environment!” “Recently a family came from Philadelphia to Seattle for a visit and made a special trip to Whidbey Island just to see Sweet Mona’s” said Mona Newbauer.
