It all started back in August of 2012. I was working at a local healthfood store and two things were happening:
1. I noticed many customers could not eat anything packaged because it all had soy, gluten, peanuts, or some other common allergen. I thought, wow these folks need something clean to enjoy.
2. I could not afford to buy the raw chocolate in the store at that time, so I started making my own. After experimenting and sharing my concoctions, the feedback was so beautiful I decided to pursue cacao as a business; to share quality, clean products made with love, to show my daughter how rewarding it is to be an entrepreneur, and to set a new standard for gourmet food.
This is how it all began, and 5 years later we are expanding and sharing our passion for cacao both as a health food and a pleasurable, mindful indulgence. Yes, you can have chocolate and feel great about it!
Absolutely zero compromises for ingredient quality is our motto.
We sweeten with organic grade A robust maple syrup from Bascom family farms. Each piece of chocolate has 2 grams of sugar.
Our sugar free chocolates are made with organic stevia and non-gmo birch xylitol.
Our cacao is sourced from the Longevity Warehouse. This Fair Trade cacao is the revered species Arriba Nacional, and it is not grown on a barren lot like typical CM cacao. This cacao is literally harvested from the jungle in Ecuador where the locals have to ride donkeys on the treacherous terrain, swatting at wasps while they pick the pods. It's truly nature made, and the workers are paid fairly, which is so critical to having a quality company.
No synthetics! Our flavors are organic essential oils without solvents, organic dehydrated fruits, organic floral waters, or organic, non-irradiated spices.
No additives or preservatives.
It is our mission to change lives through good chocolate from the sourcing of ingredients, all the way down the production line, to it melting in your mouth and elevating your life experience. Many blessings!
