MarieBelle Chocolates have received praises from the likes of Oprah Winfrey, who added their hot chocolate to her “Favorite Things” list.

Founder and CEO Maribel Lieberman passion began at eight-years-old when she would make sugar cookies and sell them to neighborhood children in Honduras. When she moved to the states, Maribel settled in New Orleans, where she lived for six years, working for a Japanese cosmetics company. Eventually, she moved to New York and experienced five successful years with her catering company, Maribel’s Gourmet Cuisine. She also started to mingle with socialites such as the Christian Dior leadership and Bill Clinton.

When speaking on her beginnings into the chocolate industry, Lieberman states, “I really wanted to open a gourmet market to give a face to my catering business. I wanted to represent ingredients from every country. That was my vision, but it wasn’t in the budget. So, I chose just one ingredient: chocolate.” She continues, “I realized that chocolate and cocoa are from my country and from America. I was excited; I was destined to bring credit to my country, rather than credit going to places like Belgium and France.” Upon starting her business, The Honduran Chocolate Queen would import African cocoa from Europe but quickly became aware of the slavery associated with the cocoa industry there and opted for Latin-American cocoa.

There are two locations in New York; their flagship store in SoHo is on 484 Broome Street and their latest is in the Kitano Hotel, with locations in Japan as well. The brand is also available Luxury retailers all over the US.
