TONIGHT! Tour Concord’s Only Chocolate Factory – Home of the 3-pound Apple

December 13, 2012 9:30 am · 22 comments


Talk about a Claycord success story!

Rachel Dunn, of Rachel Dunn Chocolates, started her family owned business from her home in Concord in 1984, and since then, she’s been on the Rosie O’Donnell Show 19 times, and they’ve also been featured on the Food Network and on QVC.

Their World Famous Apples were also named “Have to Have” by Oprah!

The Rachel Dunn Chocolate Factory is located at 1021 Detroit Avenue, just past Costco in Concord.

They’re extending an invitation to their fellow Claycordians to check out the factory tonight during a special open house from 5pm-8pm.

Stop by anytime between those hours, go see where the magic happens, and support a very local business! Just RSVP to let them know you’re coming. Call them at 925-798-4321.

Everything is yummy.

They have all kinds of candy that is just incredible, and the apples are to die for.

I have received their chocolate covered apples and pears from there as gifts over past holidays. They are absolutely fantastic…

Oh how I wish I could go. Yummmmm….

…have never tasted chocolates from there. Are there retail sales from a little shop in the factory? And/or where in Concord may they be purchased? (asking you is so much more fun than calling their phone number…. 🙂 ) December 13, 2012 at 2:29 PM

Haha, Antler. Their retail shop is on Detroit.

Best chocolate I’ve ever had! Must stop in for an apple and some truffles!

JB December 13, 2012 at 4:26 PM

I wish we could go tonight but with the kids having a ton of homework to finish we won’t make it. Have fun to whomever visits. Enjoy some goodies for me please.

Antler December 13, 2012 at 5:12 PM

Thank you, Mayor!!! I’ll be over that way tomorrow, so maybeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee…………

Antler December 13, 2012 at 5:25 PM

Oh my goodness gracious sake’s alive, LOOK at this, y’all !!!

I’m so tempted to try one of those big chocolate covered apples. The apple cancels out the chocolate calories, right?

JustMe December 13, 2012 at 8:51 PM

I saw the headline and thought to myself, there’s a chocolate factory in Concord? Never heard of this…

VLS December 13, 2012 at 11:11 PM

I’ve been here 18 years & had no idea this place existed. It was worth the trip..very good and will go back again!! Very nice place, clean & very tasty!! Enjoyed it very much 🙂

Great place. Amazing people. The chocolate and other candies are delicious. And yeah, try the apples. Glad this place is getting some attention again.
