The Bittersweet Story
Bittersweet Confections was founded in 2002 by local chocolatier Cheryl Scripter. Cheryl, a Louisiana native, has always loved the art of chocolate confections. She started Bittersweet Confections with a mission to create an exceptional collection of chocolates using local ingredients and superior chocolate. After sharing kitchen space for many years with other chefs and working from local outdoor markets, Cheryl eventually decided to branch out by opening her doors on Magazine Street in 2004.
Forced to relocate temporarily to Baton Rouge after Hurricane Katrina devastated her home and business, Cheryl and her family finally returned to New Orleans and settled into the Lakeview/MidCity area of town.
Cheryl now uses her shop to celebrate the spirit and resilience of the city. She uses locally produced pecans and dairy products and has several truffle collections named for unique local landmarks such as Royal Street and Canal Street or for New Orleans neighborhoods such as the French Quarter and the Garden District.
Visit our boutique in the historic New Orleans Warehouse District, and enjoy an extensive selection of fine chocolates, custom cakes, pastries, cupcakes, and espresso.
Each artisan confection is handcrafted, using the finest Swiss chocolate, farm-fresh dairy, and other natural ingredients. Bittersweet Confections is passionate about chocolate and loves sharing our creations with you. We hope you will find your Bittersweet Confections exprerience absolutely delightful.
