Norman Love Confections - A Local Delight
Have you heard of Norman Love? Norman Love Confections is an award-winning chocolatier and he’s right here in our backyard! Chef Norman, the president and founder of the family business, lives here in Fort Myers with his wife/co-owner and their two kids.
The shop opened doors in 2001, introducing their chocolatey creations to our area. Each chocolate is a handcrafted masterpiece, almost too pretty to eat! We love Norman Love’s nautical themed candies, and their seasonal chocolates as well. It’s our “go-to” confection shop for a tasty treat, and they make great gifts for family and friends.
Everyone Loves Chocolate!
Everyone loves chocolate! In fact, that’s what attracted Norman to the industry. Having served as the executive pastry chef for a number of luxury resorts and traveling internationally to share his talents, Norman decided to spread the Love (pun-intended) to our local community here in Fort Myers.

It’s really a hidden treasure here in Southwest Florida that we are so fortunate to have in our backyard. Norman Love Confections has a few locations in Fort Myers, Naples and Estero, as well as Artisan Gelato by Norman Love, which has it’s own storefront and can also be found on some of our local restaurant menus too.
Our Chocolates Are Famous!
Norman Love has been featured on USA Today, the Today Show, the Robb Report, InStyle, Martha Stewart Living, Forbes Magazine and the Oprah Magazine. Impressive, eh? Even still, Norman and his family are humble workers, who are very generous to our local community. The company participates in a number of charity events, such as Habitat for Humanities of Lee County.

You can read more about the Norman Love story on their website here, and you can even order your chocolatey delights online!
Even better… you can sign up to attend a confection course on cookies, tarts, truffles, molded candies and more. Classes are held throughout the year, but be advised they do sell out pretty quickly!
