Chocolates of Distinction

Made in Buffalo, New York

75 Years & Four Generations

Watson’s Chocolates, long considered the locals' favorite, has been hand-crafting delicious confections for our retail shops throughout Western New York since 1946.

Family owned and operated, we are best known for producing Sponge Candy, a regional favorite with a light, airy and crispy center drenched in our heavenly milk or decadent dark chocolate.

We welcome you to our online shop where you will surely find your old favorites and be tempted to try something new!

Born in Buffalo

In 1946, two brothers, Louis and John Watson, and their respective wives, Ellen and Mary, began making chocolates in the back room of their soda fountain and luncheonette on Delaware Ave. in Kenmore, NY.

75+ Years of Tradition

Using family recipes and traditional methods, we still make all our confections, including our famous Sponge Candy, by hand and in small batches.
