Overkill Frontman Peddles Fine Belgian Chocolates — Video

OverkillWhen Bobby ‘Blitz’ Ellsworth isn’t writing or rocking with his influential thrash band Overkill, he and his wife are hard at work on the family business — importing fine chocolates for their shop, Chocolaterie.

“We get our chocolates from Bruges in Belgium, which is the chocolate-making capital of the world,” Ellsworth told Noisecreep. “My wife works via the net and by telephone with the chocolatiers and says, ‘This is what I need, and I need it hand-rolled.’ So it’s kind of a fun family business.”


Strangely, Ellsworth cultivated his love for fine chocolates in Overkill. “It’s something I learned to love by touring and obviously having a Dutch wife who has a passion for chocolate,” he said. “We love the business. And again it just kind of complements what I’ve learned through Overkill, because I don’t think I would have been exposed to [the art of chocolate] on such a high level unless I’d seen things [touring with the band].”

Chocolaterie is located in on 6 South Broadway in Nyack, N.Y. about 30 miles North of Manhattan. “It’s nice there,” Ellsworth says. “It’s almost like a little slice of Greenwich Village kind of town.”
