Intro
Introduction

This Los Angeles-based confections company features totally addictive, beautifully packaged gourmet interpretations of traditional candies. Made with the finest all-natural, premium ingredients, these tasty treats are the brainchild of gourmet food industry insider and rocky road candy addict Michelle Crochet.

Food
About The Confections

For Droga, perfection starts with outstanding ingredients. That’s why they use premium, local, and organic ingredients whenever possible, including Guittard chocolate, unrefined wildflower honey from LA’s Bennett’s Honey Farm, and organic cream and butter from Straus Family Creamery. From their rocky road to their salted caramels, you’ll taste the quality and care in every impossibly delicious bite.

Owner
Meet the Founder

Growing up, owner Michelle Crochet became addicted to her mother’s rocky road candy recipe. She describes the use of roasted peanuts instead of walnuts as a creative interpretation of the perfect treat. This single indulgence was the inspiration behind Droga Chocolates. Droga, the Italian word for addiction, is a brightly shining star in the confection universe, reimagining traditional favorites with a unique twist that makes them deliciously addictive.

"I like to let the chocolate melt on the tip of my tongue just before biting in, capturing salt-kissed peanuts, marshmallow, and melting chocolate all in one bite."

Serious Eats

Quote icon

"Each habit-forming morsel is filled with handmade marshmallows and salty, dry-roasted peanuts, then covered with Guittard dark chocolate or Ghirardelli milk chocolate. Pass them out as individual party favors, order posh platters for cocktails, or stash a box (or, oh, five) in the cupboard."
