Who would have thought you could walk into a bakery and walk out with a weeks worth of meals, a dessert flavored protein shake and ZERO GUILT?! August 2012 ChocaL8kiss joined forces with The Max in Manalapan, NJ; a 10 week fitness program with a specific diet and work out regimen. Our menu has evolved to over 40 items including shakes, meals, snacks and desserts with Paleo and vegetarian options. We strive to make living a healthier life easy with delicious readily available meals and snacks.
Sonam Sondhi, a graduate of the world renowned Culinary Institute of America, is the Owner and Executive Pastry Chef of ChocaL8kiss bakery in Manalapan, NJ. Sonam has had the honor of being trained and mentored under the tutelage of Chef Thadeous Dubois, former Pastry Chef of The White House and Exec. Pastry Chef of the Borgata Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, NJ. Sonam later accepted the position of A La Carte Pastry Chef at the prestigious Manor in West Orange, NJ before opening ChocaL8kiss. Through trials, tribulations, and no formal business training, at the young age of 21, Sonam rented kitchens and office spaces to keep up with the constant demand of customers, while trying to make a name for herself. Within two years, business demands forced her to open her first bakery at the age of 23. Four years later, with a staff of 11; of which 7 are Certified Pastry Chefs, ChocaL8kiss is a full service bakery that specializes in custom wedding and speciality cakes made from scratch and creativity to fulfill the dreams of her clients.
As well as being a locally renowned bakery, ChocaL8kiss also offers a healthier side to their diverse menu to keep up with the changing times and peoples’ awareness of becoming health conscious. Through the talent of their well rounded chefs and staff, ChocaL8kiss has developed over fifty different protein shakes, snacks, and meals based off of The Max and Paleo health guidelines. They have even expanded to home delivery of their healthy chef prepared meals. Over the years the establishment has been able to adapt, expand and change with the times and needs of their ever growing clientele. ChocaL8kiss is still ran and owned by Sonam.
