The KOHLER Original Recipe Chocolate story begins with turtles. And not just any run-of-the-mill turtle – a complex blend of chocolate; smoky, burnt caramel and finished with salted pecans hand-picked for their size and perfection. The turtle that went through rigorous testing, many recipe tweaks and extensive sampling was perfected by the renowned chefs at The American Club resort, and blessed by Kohler Co. CEO & Chairman, Herbert V. Kohler, Jr., to launch KOHLER Original Recipe Chocolates in 2007.

At the time, Kohler Co. was seriously considering purchasing a chocolate company to add to its portfolio. In searching for the right chocolate company and the perfect turtle, Mr. Kohler was struck with the realization that taste seldom matched anticipation. It was then he decided the world needed a better turtle and instead of purchasing a chocolate company, he challenged his culinary experts at The American Club resort – the Kohler Co.-owned Forbes Five-Star and AAA Five-Diamond resort in Kohler, Wisconsin –to create the finest version of the turtle in the world. The recipe was tested until the taste, texture and flavor profile was exactly perfect. This morsel evolved into the signature Terrapins the company is known for today.

“Most people don’t immediately make the connection that Kohler Co., the leading manufacturer in kitchen & bath plumbing products also produces such beautifully-crafted and delectable chocolates,” said Scott Silvestri, general manager of KOHLER Original Recipe Chocolates and director sales & marketing for The American Club resort. “With everything Kohler Co. does, it does to the fullest and with dedication to set the bar at the highest level. Our chocolate business is no different and since we launched the Terrapin, we continue to challenge ourselves to grow with thoughtful, meticulously-tested delicious, high-quality chocolates.” 

Today, the original Terrapins have become the basis for an emerging chocolates business that refuses to clutter the marketplace; rather it seeks to explore limitless opportunity in taste and texture with natural raw ingredients. The Terrapins have since been expanded into four delicious varieties: Original Buttery, Blackstrap, Java and Cranberry. 

KOHLER Original Recipe Chocolates have continued to expand its line, most recently at last year’s Fancy Food Show in New York City to include the Platinum – a dual-layered filled-shell with brown sugar caramel and pecan praline. The new addition to the KOHLER Original Recipe Chocolate line joins several other varieties.
