Snappers are inspired by our childhood. Growing up, we watched our parents make our favorite chocolate turtle confections at the family chocolate factory. Those memories inspired a new, innovative twist on a classic treat – the perfect blend of creamy caramel or savory peanut butter, rich chocolate, and the salty crunch of pretzels.
In 1914, our great grandparents set off from their native land of Greece to pursue the dream of a new life in America. Papa Charlie and Yiayia Cookie settled in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and made a life together, relying on a skill they carried with them from the family kitchen – handcrafted chocolates and ice cream. They founded a small soda fountain in Pittsburgh’s Victorian district to produce and sell their handmade chocolates and milkshakes.
