Sweet Collaboration: Unwrapping the Georgia Boy Bar with Chef Joey Ward

If there's anything we love as much as making chocolate, it's sharing the joy of creation with like-minded culinary artists. That's exactly what we've done with our latest project, the Georgia Boy Bar, crafted in collaboration with Chef Joey Ward from Atlanta’s Michelin Guide recommended restaurants, Georgia Boy and Southern Belle.

Tucked within the charming confines of Southern Belle, Georgia Boy is a hidden gem where each dining experience is a journey of flavors and surprises, much like stepping through a magical portal. Earning recognition from the Michelin Guide is a significant milestone, signifying the restaurant's ability to weave a compelling story through its cuisine—a philosophy we at Xocolatl share passionately. This shared commitment to excellence and creativity is infused into every piece of the Georgia Boy Bar, a chocolate that captures the essence of discovery and the enchanting spirit reminiscent of Willy Wonka's whimsical world.

“It was a pleasure to collaborate with another authentic Atlanta brand on this unique chocolate bar - the inspiration is from my childhood love of Roald Dahl and the magic of creativity. Not only is the taste out of this world but the bar itself is nostalgic. I can't wait for Atlanta to enjoy the experience."

— Joey Ward, Executive Chef, Georgia Boy

Hand Made, Wonka Inspired

The Georgia Boy Bar is the golden ticket to a chocolate journey, intertwining the best organic cacao with the warm comfort of Biscoff cookies, a nod to Delta’s in-flight treat, and the sparkle and crunch of artisanal salted caramel.

This ethereal treat is brought to life by premium ingredients and a handcrafted production process. Though more labor-intensive, our meticulous process of mixing house-made caramel pieces into Ugandan chocolate and hand-piping into bar molds ensures the texture and quality of each bar is precisely right.

“Joey came to us with a great concept. It's a whimsical bar and the process of going through a bunch of experimenting with different techniques to bring that vision to life was itself playful. We couldn't be happier with the final product."

— Matt Weyandt, Co-Founder, Xocolatl Chocolate

The Limited Edition Experience

Grab a bite of Georgia's best, before it vanishes into thin air.

The Georgia Boy Bar is more than just chocolate; because of its painstaking production process, it's a limited-edition piece of imagination, where each bite ushers in the magic of the movies and wonders of chef-inspired, culinary delights.

We invite you to join us in this celebration of chocolate, storytelling, and the whimsy that Willy Wonka symbolizes. Find it in limited quantities at our Krog Street Market store or online shop, or make a reservation at Chef Joey Ward’s elegant Georgia Boy restaurant and enjoy a take-home bar, but act quickly—like the best moments in life, it won't be around for long.

Happy Tasting,
Your friends at Xocolatl Chocolate
