Iris’s love of chocolate started at a very young age, but it wasn’t until 2015 that she decided to leave traditional pursuits behind and set out to explore the fascinating world of chocolate-making. After graduating from Ecole Chocolat’s Chocolatier program, Iris started experimenting with bold flavors and vibrant colors, and before too long, Iris Delights was born.
“My favorite thing is watching someone try one of my chocolates for the first time. The expression on their face is priceless, and it’s why I do what I do.” – Iris Meyers
Iris lives in San Diego, CA, and has a background in Computer Science, Business Management, and Life Coaching.
I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Iris and her amazing, beautiful, and delicious chocolates over the past couple of years. I initially got in contact with her about helping with a coffee and chocolate pairing at a nonprofit organization fundraiser. She is incredible and so is her product! I can’t even begin to describe how wonderful it has been to enjoy, in both my personal life and my professional life, the gorgeous and delectable results of her love, care and creativity! I can definitely say that my life is a whole lot better since I met Iris! I highly recommend Iris Delights for any occasion.
I am obsessed with these handcrafted chocolates! The finest ingredients combined with artistic flair and incredibly delicious flavor pairings make tasting an Iris Delight a true delight! I am a customer for life!
It’s rare you find a small business owner with Iris’s open mind and commitment to her craft. As the owner of a small urban winery, I believe heavily in creating a superb craft product. I wanted to bring in chocolates that not only perfectly paired with my wines, but also had the same level of care that I put into my own products. I’m so thrilled I worked with Iris! She brought vigor and creativity to our partnership, carefully analyzing the flavor profiles of our wines and selecting just the right ingredients for her chocolates to bring out the best in both. Her attention to detail and passion for what she does ensured that my customers were always thrilled with the result. Thank you Iris!
Iris Delights has been mesmerizing our gluten-free Cyder patrons at Newtopia with her robust blends of chocolate savory and spicy! I would recommend any establishment to partner with her to create wonderful magical chocolate goods she concocts!
Iris is wonderful to work with — she’s innovative and adventurous in developing flavor pairings and easily tackles the GIANT orders with perfect packaging and punctuality
I happened to find out about Iris Delights while tasting beers and started buying them for personal consumption. The quality, freshness, and flavor of her chocolates were so good and consistent that I started to use them in my catering business. My clients love the flavors and I love the ease of ordering and prompt personal service.
Iris’s Delights are not just chocolates, but an amazing sensory experience. You can taste the quality of the ingredients right away. The chocolate is firm and never gritty. The fillings taste like real food, not just flavored sugar. I love to pair them with my favorite wines and beer, and they are always a hit at parties. Her chocolates are not about satisfying a sugar craving, they satisfy a soul craving.
Iris did a beautiful job with customized chocolates that I ordered as client gifts. She helped me customize my flavors and guided me through the ordering process. The chocolates were ready as promised and they were gorgeous. The colors were amazing! All the recipients remarked how beautiful the chocolates looked as I delivered them. And they of course followed up to say how yummy they were! I would absolutely recommend (and always do!) Iris Delights to anyone looking for delicious customized chocolates.
Iris worked on a custom order for me and my girlfriend, and we are honestly beyond amazed. I came up with a list of crazy ideas hoping that at least 1 or 2 would be doable. Well, after she made trial batches and we bounced some ideas off each other, she basically made them all come to life for me. She took the time to execute to perfection and the chocolates were a true hit. Shipping was fast and the chocolates were packaged well. She even threw in a few samples for us to try. Long story short if you haven’t tried her chocolate magic you are truly missing out. We will be back to order more!
Iris’s Delights were the perfect added touch to my wedding. My guests commented on how exquisite the flavors were, and how beautiful the chocolates looked. Iris worked with me to get the perfect colors to match my color template also. I expected to have a few chocolates left over, but it was hard to track them down–they were that much of a hit! Iris is passionate and gifted about chocolate making and you can certainly tell–she creates the most unique and delicious flavor combinations that make it difficult to share 🙂
I’ve been a regular customer for a couple years now, since before the company was official named. Awesome chocolates, with a wide variety of solids, nut, caramel, and ganache fillings set the stage for great gifts or for your personal chocoholic indulgences. You can design your own as well. High recommendations go to the ganache fillings that are infused with liquor. Not for it simply being liquor but because the type/quality of liquor used is so very well pared with the chocolate that they are without question recipes that will assuredly bring you back every time they are offered. Try them. Iris Delights will Delight!
