The Ethel M Chocolate Factory

This is one of my favorite places to go when I go to Las Vegas!

Located in Henderson, Nevada and is the location in which all of the Ethel M brand and ethels brand chocolates are manufactured. The company distributes their products mainly via phone and internet sales, although they also operate several retail outlets located in and around Las Vegas, Nevada and Chicago, Illinois. Also located at this plant are the Ethel M Botanical Cactus Gardens and a small branch of M&M's World.

Ethel M is owned by Mars Incorporated and was named after the mother of Forrest Mars.

In 2007 the company made the transition from Ethel M Chocolates into ethels chocolate. The new branding boasts a whole new line of 48 different handmade-gourmet chocolates designed by master chocolatier Jin Caldwell.

In late 2007 the company responded to public demand for for the classic line of chocolates by re-releasing six varieties of chocolates in their retail stores in the Las Vegas area, though 16 varieties are available at the factory location.

  1. We visited the factory last year while in Vegas. I walked pretty much straight through and to the cactus garden. Spent my time photographing the cactus until the tour bus driver said "load em up". I did take the sample of chocolate they were handing out.
