Head Cowgirl Marilyn Lysohir founded Cowgirl Chocolates in 1997. Her two favorite things in the world are art (she has a notable career as a ceramic sculptor) and chocolate. In fact her first job was working in a chocolate factory in Pennsylvania. Marilyn mingled some favorite memories with some new ideas to create an American original, Cowgirl Chocolates...chocolates with a spicy cowgirl kick. She was the pioneer, one of the first companies to offer spicy chocolates in the world.
Cowgirl Chocolates has won a total of 19 product awards and 2 packaging awards and is located in Moscow, Idaho USA. It has also been featured on the Food Network on “Unwrapped” and “Extreme Cuisine” and on CNBC “On the Money”. They have also been written up in the New York Times, InStyle, the Toronto Star among others.
Marilyn, the "head cowgirl" at Cowgirl Chocolates, generously provided me with a Cowgirl Signature 1/4 Pound Truffle Box. The chocolates were delicious! I loved sitting around with my family sampling the chocolates to see which were our favorites and if they really were spicy. They tasted like a delicious chocolate with an added little “cowgirl kick”! It's so interesting. The mild ones were mild and had a very enjoyable flavor without burning your mouth! My favorite was definitely the Mild Raspberry Lemonade Dark Chocolate. MMMMMM! You can check out all their flavors here.
Cowgirl Chocolates would make an interesting gift for just about anyone in your life that needs a good ol’ fashioned “Cowgirl Kick!”
