Fames: The survival of the sweetest

From a cobblestoned German street to a pulsating Mediterranean port to a colorful Brooklyn neighborhood, Fames incorporates the best of each culture’s techniques in every luscious chocolate morsel.


Mr. Frankel’s passion for innovation led him to deeper explorations in chocolate territory. Drawing on the expertise of international maestros, he developed a unique line of crispy-thin wafers and chocolate confections. He then began producing quality spices to infuse his creations with unique flavor profiles. The king of his creations was halva, an item widely available but often of substandard quality. Authentic Middle-Eastern halva is tricky to produce, but Jacob wouldn’t have it any other way. Taking advantage of his proximity to Mediterranean culinary connoisseurs, he consulted, explored and tested until he achieved halva perfection.
