Oprah Knows her Artisanal Chocolate

Phillip Ashley Chocolate of Memphis makes Oprah’s list of favorite things

The Memphis chocolatier's The Perfect Turtle set was named to the star’s influential list, Oprah's Favorite Things. This year, 50 of the 72 products on the list were created by Black-owned or-led businesses. The list posted online Friday and will be featured in the December 2020 issue of O, The Oprah Magazine.
 
The Perfect Turtle Set that Oprah favors includes eight sophisticated chocolate turtles —four are milk chocolate pecan and four are dark chocolate cashew.
 
"I have wanted this for a long time," owner Phillip Rix said. "I am super excited and happy to be a part of the list this year."

Rix said he is not exactly sure how Oprah discovered him, but he thinks it has to do with an online story Memphis Tourism did with the magazine earlier this year.
 
"Being featured as one of Oprah’s Favorite Things has always been a goal of mine," Rix said. "This just proves that if you set your sights on something and keep after it, it just might happen."
