“Every ounce of effort poured into this collection reflects my dedication. I’m thrilled to share this truly special collection with everyone,” Acosta said. Champagne & Chocolate creates its exquisite chocolates from the Chocolate Nugget Candy Factory, a Northern Nevada chocolate factory since 1936, renowned for producing the purestand finest chocolate across three generations. In 2021, Cesar joined forces with Eddie Feriance, the owner of the Candy Factory.

“Recognizing the need for the very best, I approached Eddie, because I knew the Chocolate Nugget was what I wanted,” said Acosta. “I wouldn’t have settled for anything less. We wanted the absolute best in the region.”

As business partners, Cesar and Ed are elevating the chocolate game by introducing their latest collection nationwide, inviting people across the country to savor the Lake Tahoe Collection. Beyond the premium ingredients, what sets this collection apart is the thoughtfulness behind its cover art. Meticulously designed sleeves capture the beauty of Lake Tahoe and the bliss that comes from biting into a meticulously crafted chocolate bar.

“When visualizing these bars, I wanted to capture everything I hold dear: my hometown of Lake Tahoe, my community, and, of course, my passion—the joy that chocolate brings,” explained Acosta.

Designed by Acosta himself, the new collection features an array of beautiful designs and includes vegan options, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and more. Now available in-store at 1001 Heavenly Village Way Suite 30B, and online at, this collection promises to be a truly magnificent experience.
