Raising the Candy Bar at The Uncommon Chocolatier in Market Common

by Ashley Daniels

If life is like a box of chocolates, I’ll take one of everything at The Uncommon Chocolatier on a daily basis.

New to the neighborhood at the dawning of the new year, this cute little shop packs a big punch in every bite. 

Owner Christine Falvo, however, isn’t new to working with chocolate. Falvo has had her hands in this sweet business for nearly three decades. 

This wholesale supplier, with a factory based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, sells chocolate products to stores, fairs, and festivals across the country, and decided on the Market Common as her first retail store location. 

“We started with a pop-up over Christmas and decided to actually open the store front in January,” says Falvo.

Her team includes Falvo’s mom, Theresa, and daughter, Ellie, who both work at The Uncommon Chocolatier, along with manager Brittany Lee. They all pour a lot of love, cream, butter, sugar and chocolate into all of their products; there are no premade mixes. Top that off with their mix-in additions, and it’s easy to see how they came up with their name— Uncommon.

The shop hand-pours over one hundred loaves of fudg3— making delicious flavors like Irish Car Bomb; Birthday Cake; Dark Espresso; German Chocolate Cake; Galaxy; Aqua Man; Mint Chocolate; Banana Foster; Cotton Candy; Chocolate Strawberry; and many more. 

But their sweet treats don’t stop there. Choose from to-die-for toffees; bourbon caramels; smash chocolates; Easter bunny molds; white Oreos; filled chocolates; chocolate-covered almonds; fresh strawberries dipped in chocolate; and much more.

With their focus on fully-customized and creative, the sky’s the limit at this shop. They even offer gluten-free and vegan-friendly chocolate options. And, the cherry on top of that: they’re community-minded, offering a special discount for locals and a future goal of starting a VIP chocolate tasting club.
