Award Winning Chocolate: Inside Maverick

It's in Cincy, and it's recognized as some of the best chocolate in the world.

When Maverick Chocolate Company took home three different awards at the International Chocolate Awards in June, thousands of heads collectively turned. Tucked away in the foodie paradise that is Findlay Market in Cincinnati, many loyal customers have known about this delicious, chocolate gem for years. Now co-founders Paul and Marlene Picton are gaining well deserved notoriety as being some of the best chocolate makers in the world, and they’ve got the awards to prove it.

And to think, Paul was selling jet engines just a few years ago, always bringing home some dark chocolate after he traveled.

So how did things change? What motivated the couple to change their lives and change the chocolate game at the same time?

Turns out, they just ran out of chocolate, and wanted more.
