Portland, OR, is a robust community full of creativity and possibility—and Creo loves being a part of its fabric. We also love partnering with other local small businesses that craft high-quality products in Portland and the surrounding areas.
If you believe in buying and gifting locally, Creo makes it easy and delicious. There are several excellent local brands Creo has partnered with to create unique and exceptional products that blend Portland’s finest flavors.
Why Gift Local
When you gift local, you’re supporting small businesses and the community around them. When you gift Creo, you’re giving someone all of the finest flavors of Portland and supporting local artisans at the same time. Whenever possible, we choose locally sourced ingredients and highlight flavors of the Pacific Northwest. The best of Portland comes together at Creo Chocolate.
Creo Confections Featuring Our Portland Partner Brands
Creo’s Whiskey Milk bar is made from cacao nibs infused with Westward Whiskey, creating a complex, sophisticated, and creamy flavor experience. Westward—crafted in small batches in the heart of Portland—makes the highest-rated American single malt whiskey. With naturally occurring flavor notes of barrel-aged whiskey, malt, and smoked sea salt, the Whiskey Milk bar is a delicious way to gift local.
Speaking of milk, many of our confections feature dairy products from Humboldt Creamery, including our white and milk chocolate bars. We love that Humboldt has offered organic, animal friendly, and sustainably produced dairy products for almost 100 years.
Our Yuzu Gimlet truffle features Aria Portland Dry Gin and Yuzu ganache, enrobed in dark chocolate. Aria is an award-winning gin, distilled by hand in Portland and crafted from fair trade, non-GMO, and sustainably harvested ingredients and botanicals. Yuzu is a beautiful winter fruit with flavors of grapefruit, lemon, and mandarin orange, which compliments the gin perfectly.
Each award-winning Coffee and Cream Bar contains almost a shot of Nossa Familia Coffee—roasted right here in Portland—for a melt-in-your-mouth latte experience. Nossa Familia is committed to sustainable practices such as ethical sourcing, using 100% renewable electricity, and environmentally-friendly roasting practices. Creo’s creamy white chocolate completes the perfection of this bar for a true coffee and cream flavor in every bite.
