Mitchel Truman Siegert founded Truman Chocolates in 2006 with a vision. He wanted to provide indulgent, decadent, visually stunning chocolates to chocolate-lovers in Texas. Mitch’s passion for food and his boundless creativity led him to the Culinary Institute of America in New York, where he earned degrees in both Culinary Arts and Baking & Pastry Arts. His hunger to learn more led him to The Food Network where he worked alongside chefs including Emeril Legasse, Bobby Flay, and Rachel Ray. 

With the help of world-renowned chef Ewald Notter, he found his love for chocolate and realized his desire to share this passion with the world through a family-owned chocolate shop in his hometown. He created 16 original flavors in a kitchen built with his own two hands. Since opening in 2006, he has created more flavors and designs with an undying passion and love for his craft. Truman Chocolates has been providing gourmet, handmade chocolates to the Brazos Valley, as well as shipping them all over the world. Former First Lady Laura Bush has served Truman Chocolates to visiting dignitaries to the United Nations.
