Phillip Ashley Rix profiled in Forbes: Real Life Willy Wonka Wins With Wild Flavors

Memphian Phillip Ashley Rix is profiled on ForbesLife:

“A self-taught Willy Wonka is winning high profile customers with his wild flavored chocolates, like sweet potato, French bleu cheese, and bacon caramel shortbread.  That’s just a sampler of what Phillip Ashley Rix has concoted for his eponymous, artisan chocolate company.  Rix’s chocolates were doled out at the Oscars, a box sits on Morgan Freeman’s nightstand, and they’re consumed by some of America’s top CEOs.  Each one has been lovingly named, starting with his signature, “Mama Jean,” a sweet potato-flavored dark chocolate ganache.  They’re made by hand, and have been dreamt up, and produced by Rix, at his professional kitchen in Memphis, Tennessee.
