SUGAR & SPICE - Combining their savvy and skill, these chocolatiers make one sweet pairing.
Raising the bar, literally and figuratively, 3 Some Chocolates founders Kristin Parker and Patrick Ali Glanville wanted to create a company in which they could utilize both of their talents, so they did.

Glanville, the culinary artist in the team, contributed the company’s signature recipes. Bred in Southside Jamaica, Queens, Glanville learned the art of chocolate making from his maternal grandmother, who was a Jamaica native.

“As a young boy, my grandmother taught me how to make different types of chocolate confections. Her favorite chocolate treat was a special blend of jerk spice and her homemade chocolate bites,” the company’s CEO and president explains in a video.

“We started the company in January 2017 and named it 3 Some Chocolates because we wanted to give you milk, white and dark in one chocolate bar and call it a threesome,” Parker shares during a recent telephone interview.

Just like that, the pair leveraged their skillsets to create a company and a brand they believed would add value to people’s lives by providing them something a lot of people love, which is chocolate, with an added twist: three flavors in one. Steadily growing, at the end of 2019, 3 Some Chocolates recorded more than 200,000 units sold, garnered a plethora of five-star ratings and has amassed more than 40,000 customers and counting.

“At the start, we worked really hard to build our brand by trademarking our name. We thought it was very important to make sure that, before we even launched, we were protected, because a lot of times you hear that people have these great ideas, then they share them with the wrong people. So we took our time,” she explains.

Glanville designed the website and online store (3somechocolates.com), and Parker crafted the content. It’s where you will find their exclusive products, including their scrumptious Jerk Chocolate Bites and delectable Ruby & White Chocolate Red Velvet Crunch Bar, as well as their spirits infused Tequila Caramel Dip and Henny Truffles.
