"Chocolatier Changes Location, Not Clientele"

The Jewish Advocate
(July 30-August 5, 2004)


Sharon, Mass. - They may have moved to a bright and sunny shop on the South Shore, but Sweethearts Three's fine chocolates are still in demand in Chestnut Hill (and Sharon).

"Things in Sharon are amazing - even better than we thought," said Jill Schwab, vice president and daughter of shop owner Karen Schwab. "But we still deliver to Chestnut Hill and Newton. We have a lot of customers there."

Karen's husband is Dr. Jay Schwab, a semi-retired children's dentist, and Sweethearts three is a family business. Jay can be found dipping candies when he's not at his dental practice.

There is one more family member at Sweethearts Three. Although she's not a relative by blood, Helen Murphy has been with the company for more than 20 years. Murphy is the primary candy maker, or as Jill calls her, "a chocolate artisan with any eye for fine detail."

The company, which hand-makes edibles from chocolate truffles to themed centerpieces, has been around since 1981. It was then that Karen got the idea to start a handmade chocolate business that catered to kosher clientele, after she completed a candy making class.
