My Chocolate Soul Finds Its Home On Broadway

Next time you're near Target, be sure to drop by Uptown's own custom chocolate shop, My Chocolate Soul. Proprietor and chocolatier Ramona Thomas's shop had its grand opening last month at 4442 North Broadway, right next to ... Weight Watchers!

Ramona has made confections her life since 2011, creating her handmade all-natural goodies in a shared kitchen on the West Side.

She chose Uptown as the setting for My Chocolate Soul's first brick-and-mortar site, and has been working behind the scenes since last summer to make it a reality.  She loves Uptown and the warm welcome given to her shop by both the business community and new clientele. Her shop completely sold out on opening day.

Customers will find candies, of course, made right behind the front counter. There are also cupcakes, shortbread, gift baskets, hand-dipped strawberries, and cookies.

Ramona will be working with her neighbor, Weight Watchers, to figure out the points of her candies, figuring out the best way for clients to indulge in the healthiest way possible.

Since My Chocolate Soul opened, it has been featured on WGN News, in Candy Industry magazine, and in DNAinfo.

The hours are 11am-7pm Tuesday through Friday, and 11am-5pm on Saturdays. The shop is closed on Sundays and Mondays.
