I asked a very personable Kita if he used any local New York State ingredients in his chocolates and he responded with an enthusiastic, yes. He said it was one of the reasons he went into making chocolates. At age 48, he had a successful restaurant business but realized money was not enough. He wanted to make a difference in life. “Our lives are about finding our true path,” said Kita.

He said his chocolates are considered treats not to be eaten every day, but if I lived in upstate New York, I would find it hard to eat them that way.
