Started in Willmar, MN in 1987, Mr. B’s chocolate was started by Dwight Barnes, the original Chocolatier. Inspired by a trip to Antwerp, Belgium, Dwight happened on “the best chocolatier in the world,” Mr. Hans Burie. Dwight decided it was time he became a Chocolatier himself and convinced Mr. Burie to mentor him. Dwight spent three months in Belgium side by side with Mr. Burie who taught him how to make his finest chocolate from scratch. Mr. B’s has won several awards throughout the years including the “Taste Of Chocolate” in Bloomington and “Best Chocolate” by the Star & Tribune.
