Teresa drew deeply on her Amish heritage and family values in creating Puddin' River Chocolates. Traditions like hard work and an insistence on top quality were believed to lead to a fruitful and loving environment for family and community. Teresa grew up using local ingredients in the best of ways: gardening, canning and cooking homemade meals as a way of life and an expression of love. Results, then and today, anchored strong family values and ties to the community. Puddin' River Chocolates incorporates these values in everything we do.


Puddin' River Chocolate creates our chocolates and confections the old fashioned way, by hand. Loyal customers serve as our professional testers and we listen to their opinions. Insisting on the highest quality free trade cocoa from around the world, local ingredients like nuts, berries and dairy products are featured everywhere possible.


While our creations are inspired by Amish family recipes handed down through generations, our Chief Chocolatier doesn’t stop there. Each recipe is tinkered and tested, expanded with Teresa’s creativity. We pair dark and milk chocolates with over 37 truffle flavors – and create wide ranging confections beyond truffles. Our customers can’t seem to agree on their favorites, from our rich gourmet, dark chocolate hazelnut toffee, to our salted caramels and bordeaux creams, we invite you to experience them all.


Puddin' River Chocolates are manufactured in a facility that handles peanuts, tree nuts (almonds, cashews, hazelnuts, pecans, pistachios and walnuts), milk, eggs, soy and wheat products. Some of our chocolates contain ingredients that could pose allergen risks, so we encourage you to closely examine our ingredients label before enjoying.

“This is a prime example of a boutique wine and chocolate shop with an added twist! They actually on specific evenings do dinner on very upscale level. The shop owner is super nice lady with a spitfire of personality who you instantly feel a kinship with.  Her never ending desire to please and serve the patrons of her shop is obvious.  Don’t believe me, take a bite of her salted chocolate and Carmel candy or any other of her hand made chocolates.  If you are looking for moonstruck chocolates at a much better price point and arguably even tastier….make the trip to Canby and have a taste!  Oh and before you leave reserve your table for dinner!”

A few minutes ago I had the good fortune of savoring a few chocolate treats from your shop. Your daughter was generous enough to share with a few of the faculty. They were outstanding! Please include me on your e-mail list — they are worth pursuing at a future date. Thank you for sending us your wonderful daughter– and such great chocolates!

“Staying in Wilsonville for a business trip, I wanted something local and cool without having to drive up to Portland. Just 15 minutes from my hotel I found Puddin’ River wine and chocolates. The dark chocolate salted caramels are fantastic. Don’t miss out on the fresh biscuits with apple butter and butter. Brewing Stumptown is always good. Having sampled some of these treats and more has turned me from a first timer into a devotee. What makes Puddin’ River so delightful are the incredibly friendly staff always willing to talk about wine, chocolate, and good food. They were all too happy to let me set up show and quietly read for a few hours. Reasonable prices! Coming from Los Angeles or even ten miles up the 5, I could actually afford to sample and buy. Such a pleasant experience. I will be back for more.”
