At Norman Love Confections, our goal is simple: sourcing the highest-quality ingredients from around the world, and transforming them into gorgeous gourmet works of art. 

Creative Vision

At Norman Love Confections, we eschew the preservatives and mass assembly lines in favor of handcrafting each piece from premium chocolate, butter, nuts, spices, and natural flavorings.The end result is a line of signature chocolates and whimsical novelties that taste, look, and smell unlike anything else.



Norman Love Confections® was founded by Norman and Mary Love, in Fort Myers, Florida in 2001, after a Norman leaving behind a 13 years sucessful career as executive pastry chef at The Ritz-Carlton.

Originally intending to sell wholesale to acquaintances he had made in the restaurant industry, Love quickly realized that there was great consumer demand for the ultra-premium chocolates he was producing, and opened his flagship chocolate salon off of Daniels Parkway. In the 20 years since, Norman Love Confections has opened five additional chocolate salons, along with an artisan gelato shop located adjacent to the original retail location.

Known for creating chocolate flavors recognizable with american consumers, Norman Love Confections® is also recognized for its artistic and aesthetic presentation of the chocolates.
