The History of Bayard's Chocolates

Bayard's Chocolates

Discover the best of Bayard's


Pride in every piece

The legend of Bayard's Chocolates began back in 1939 when James Bayard Kelly II created his first batch from scratch.

Like many things, Bayard's began as a local favorite first. But it wasn't long until word spread and shoppers lined up outside his small storefront eager for a taste. A few years later his son entered the business. Wanting to put his own personal stamp on the business, he introduced chocolate "houses" and invited shoppers to come in and handpick their favorites for careful packaging. This tradition continues today. The houses are still thriving. And, of course, each batch is still made from scratch, using only the finest, purest natural ingredients including real butter and cream.

It's time to discover what many have known all along. You simply can't find a better tasting chocolate at a better price.
