Whimsy Chocolates was inspired by Pamela's Aunt Vicki’s chocolatey treats and made possible by the collaborative effort of loved ones and friends. The local business has grown since 2012 to include a streamlined production team of six employees and professional equipment that enhances efficiency without sacrificing quality or uniqueness. Based in Battle Ground, WA, Whimsy Chocolates was first introduced and welcomed at local festivals and bazaars. They quickly expanded and began making chocolates for local grocery stores, wineries, flower shops, and more. Supporting fellow small businesses is important to them, so they forge partnerships with up-and-coming artisans by incorporating their products into their recipes. Whimsy believes their success comes from building strong, enduring relationships, especially with their customers.
Pamela Wanous is the jubilant visionary behind Whimsy Chocolates. After her daughter Jaden was born, Pamela Wanous was inspired to create a family legacy that could be passed down from generation to generation. Harkening back to her Aunt Vicki’s exquisite homemade chocolates, she fostered a whimsical notion that grew into an exciting adventure and co-founded Whimsy Chocolates. Pam’s outgoing warmth for people, her passion for community, and her inventive artisan flavors have made Whimsy far more than a business venture. Pamela’s dream of a family legacy is already taking form with her little one, Jaden, who is learning to harness the artistic craft that is Whimsy.
Co-founder Ann Wanous is the poised coordinator behind Whimsy Chocolates. She is Pamela’s mother-in-law and fellow chocolatier, and she has been with Whimsy Chocolates every step of the way. She excels in behind-the-scenes logistics, encouraging their great team and collaborating on their one-of-a-kind flavors that dance on the palate. Ann is dedicated to the success of Whimsy Chocolates, and her passion for systematizing has led to their continued growth. Ann is a happily married mother and grandmother whose love of family can be tasted in every Whimsy bite.
