‘The Chocolate Shell’ Hosts Grand Re-Opening in New Space

Barbara Crowley stands proudly outside the window of her new ‘The Chocolate Shell.”

Attention all chocolate-lovers!

The Chocolate Shell in Old Lyme has changed locations … to right next door! The new space welcomes customers with shelves of candy, bright colors, and elegant chandeliers — a guaranteed delicious experience for all that enter.

Barbara will be ready to serve her customers on Labor Day afternoon.

Founded in 1980 by Catherine Pratt, The Chocolate Shell is now owned by Old Lyme resident Barbara Crowley. Wishing to expand the business and thus share her love of chocolate with more people, Crowley has moved the store to a larger space to accommodate her endless creative visions for the shop.

The colors of candy!

“I’m going to start hosting events here,” Crowley explains. “Chocolate and wine tasting evenings, chocolate and bourbon tasting evenings. I’m hoping to do those once a month if I can.” Her first event in the new store will be an all-chocolate dinner … and yes,  every course of the meal will have chocolate in it!

Take a seat!

“I want to start doing birthday parties for kids,” Crowley continues. “We can do paint your own chocolate, make your own assortment of chocolates, make your own chocolate pizza, anything I can plan to do in the shop. It’ll be so much fun! I’m totally looking forward to that.”

The store is a chocolate-lover’s paradise!

Crowley’s enthusiasm and excitement about the store is almost palpable as she describes the unique experiences that The Chocolate Shell gives its customers. “What makes the Chocolate Shell special is the fact that everything is personalized to the customer who comes in here. Whatever that customer wants, we will make sure we give it to them.”

Crowley invites chocolate-lovers and the community in general to join her at the Grand Re-opening of the all-new Chocolate Shell tomorrow, Labor Day Monday, Sept. 3, from 2 to 5 p.m. when she be serving refreshments and giving tours of the new store. “It’s the next big adventure!” the effervescent Crowley exclaims.
