Don and I have both worked in the natural foods industry and at Whole Foods Market for years. We have worked in the retail environment, in the purchasing world and on the distribution side of things. It has always been fun for both of us to work with product, people and in a world where every day is a new experience. We knew the day would come, we would create our own food business with quality standards, clean ingredients and a fun product.
Don has always enjoyed baking, trying different recipes and creating with chocolate. He took his hobby and started selling cookies, banana nut bread and chocolate items such as chocolate turtles and fudge at the local Buda and Dripping Springs Farmers Markets in 2013. From there, Chocolate Drop Confections was born.
Working the farmers markets for a few years turned into opening a food trailer on August 20th, 2016. Our trailer is a combination of bake goods and creamery items such as soft serve ice cream, cake, sundaes, pecan pie, cookies, brownies, fudge and more. We were honored to park our truck next door to Marbridge on the corner of 1626 and Bliss Spillar Road in Manchacha, Texas. We will always be appreciative of Marbridge, their support and the beautiful work they do on a daily basis.
We moved our truck into our own town "Buda" and opened in historical area on Main Street in Sept 2018. We made a few big changes to our menu. In addition to our bake goods and soft serve, we added burgers, dogs and kids meals. We called ourselves a "Diner and Dessert Food Truck. We still offer gluten free goodies, gluten free cones and gluten buns for our customers who have gluten intolerance.
Fast forward November 2020, you will still find us in downtown Buda a block from the city park and railroad tracks. Please stop by anytime, come sit outside at the picnic tables and enjoy a bite! Dining in, we use the popular delivery services as well. Our top selling food items are the Bacon Cheeseburger, the Southwest Burger and the Chili Dog. We use good meat, fresh vegetables and make our own chili.
We appreciate your business and your feedback. Stay safe and healthy.
Don and Nancy
