George Brunjes passed away Sunday morning May 27th, 2012 in Everett, Washington with his family by his side. George lived his life to the fullest, reinventing himself along the way, from parish ministry, to Hospice, to his final profession, Chocolatier.
Chocolates by George! was his passion. He loved the creative process, always trying to find inspiration from books, magazines, and his customers. We believe he was just on the cusp of greater success.
Not only is his family in a period of transition, so is the business. What the future holds is unclear but an announcement will be made once the dust starts to clear.
Thank you for all the love and support that have been sent to the family and thank you for your support of Chocolates by George!

New truffles are being introduced on a monthly basis. These are highlighted on our Flavor of the Month page. In March, we featured our Modena truffle – 70% chocolate blended with balsamic vinegar and honey, which has become a run-away favorite. May’s becomes a health conscience truffle by blending 70% chocolate with the flavor of mangosteen juice with a hint of raspberry. Visit our Flavor of the Month page for more information
