Reports of chocolate’s positive health properties make a little indulgence now and then almost a requisite for well-being. That was the thinking that led David and Pamela Griffin to name their business Chocolate Therapy. With a 2-year-old shop in Dedham, the couple expanded to a second, much larger, location in Framingham in December.
David Griffin, an engineer with a manufacturing background, who studied chocolate making at the Cambridge School of Culinary Arts, says he “went into this with the thought of trying to create a wonderful chocolate experience.” The company’s bon bons and truffles reflect the owners’ passions for interesting flavors and healthy food. Pamela Griffin explains that the duo adds “therapeutic ingredients to dark chocolate to make [consumers] feel a little less guilty.” For example, “David loves pistachios, and the health benefits are incredible. I love pomegranates.” These are incorporated into pistachio truffles and molded “pom balms.” The expanded space allows for kids’ and adults’ parties. The Griffins have applied for a liquor license and hope to hold events like wine and chocolate pairings. Chocolate Therapy, 60 Worcester Road, Framingham, 508-875-1571, www.ctsweetremedies.com .
