History

Supreme chocolatier has been in business since 1911. Started by our grandfather. Emmanuel Katsoris when he arrived here from his home country of Greece, by making candy on his marble slab table in a small retail store kitchen. From that humble beginning, my family owned and operated business has expanded during the past 100 years to bring you a full range of fine enrobed and molded chocolate products, manufactured under the Blum’s of San Francisco, House of Bauer, and Superior Confection’s brand names. historypagephotoBlums is our premium box chocolate line established in 1890. These assortments contain all your old time favorite pieces with lots of whole nuts and fresh ingredients. If you crave an old fashioned box of chocolates, with plenty of variety and you’re tired of getting mostly bland, tasteless cream centers, then you will be pleasantly surprised by the variety and quality of Blum’s Premium chocolate Assortments. House of Bauer products really focus in on our Bavarian Mint, and our Bavarian “Meltaway” products. These products contain a rich, smooth creamy center, in a variety of flavors, including mint, double chocolate, hazelnut and more to be announced. Surrounded by velvety milk or rich dark chocolates, they are called “Meltaways” due to the soft, subtle texture of these delectable centers that seems to just “Meltaway” as they are enjoyed. Our founder’s brand is Superior Confections. Superior makes a wide array of seasonal chocolate products, both foiled and unfoiled and enrobed as well as molded. Our foiled hollow molded products are made by a patented process, in which they are molded right in their own individual foil shells. This provides a sealed already wrapped piece of chocolate. It also helps to preserve freshness as well as ensure quality during shipping or handling. Whether you are buying our Superior, Blum’s of San Francisco or House of Bauer products you are always assured of receiving the highest quality product made with the finest ingredients available. This has always been a tradition of my family at Supreme Chocolatier. From our chocolates which are made with the prized and more costly Ivory Coast Bean together with higher cocoa butter content, creating a smoother texture, down to our rich, fresh heavy cream recipes we use in our truffles. Ingredients like real Madagascar vanilla or real Raspberry concentrate from the Pacific Northwest are used to give our products that little extra something that only a family owned and operated company are willing to provide use much of the real stuff at all. Other companies skimp on ingredients like nuts, of which you will find larger, tastier nuts in our nut clusters. Our quality Assurance staff makes sure all ingredients are handled properly. From receiving and storage to production, they are on top of our production personnel to produce products that have eye appeal as well as good taste. From our family to yours, Enjoy! Sincerely, The Katsoris Family
