Adventures in Chocolate – Gail Ambrosius Chocolatier

Here at, we believe travel not only educates, but changes lives. Sometimes, it’s that one moment from travels during childhood or the teen years that sticks with us and inspires greatness.

One story that struck a chord with me is the journey of Gail Ambrosius. She visited France as a teen on a school trip and had one of those life-changing moments – she decided to become a chocolatier. Gail returned home and did what most of us do; she got married, took a “safe” job, and became a mother. Life has a way of pushing us to the place we’re supposed to be and sometime we make detours on our journey that prepare us for when that moment comes upon us. It makes us stronger. Gail never lost her love and desire for chocolate, and in 2004 she made a decision to pursue her dreams.

Today, the product of that delicious dream can be found on Atwood Avenue in Madison, Wisconsin at Gail Ambrosius Chocolatier. These truffles are free of preservatives and bring the adventure of worldwide destinations through smooth and creamy chocolate experiences. There are seasonal chocolates and collections such as Classic Collection, Adventure Collection, and Tea Inspired Collection.

Gail uses products from all over the world and the creamy, rich flavors reveal themselves on the tongue. The inspiration of worldwide destinations via a culinary caravan of chocolate is what makes adore this indulging treat. Gail Ambrosius is definitely a Traveling Mama to admire.

Gail Ambrosius Chocolatier variety shared this travel-inspired product with guests of Wine in the City last week. Each dinner guest received a six piece box of Gail Ambrosius Chocolatier handmade truffles to enjoy while writing about their travel and culinary experiences. Thank you, Gail Ambrosius, for your courage and persistence to follow your dreams and bring to the world this delightful and elegant culinary experience.
