Bay View’s Chocobella Candy Store Has Closed

According to a Facebook post, the producer of chocolate truffle has shuttered its storefront, but hasn’t closed the door completely on candy.



Bay View’s ChocoBella has thrown in the storefront towel. The candy store’s owner, Luis Mendez, posted the news on the shop’s Facebook page that the store, at 2257 S. Howell Ave., is no more. And to be sure, the phone number has been disconnected. The store, which specialized in truffles, opened in 2012, but at a different location in Bay View – 2474 S. Kinnickinnic Ave. According to the Facebook post, the chocolates will be available for sale online.
