Our “plain” 75% dark chocolate is anything but plain, with a simple ingredient list of raw single origin Ecuadorian cacao, cacao butter, coconut sugar and the added benefits of our superfood blend. Ecuadorian cacao is renowned for its unique flavor profile, with very fruity almost floral notes reminiscent of blackberries and orange blossoms. We then stone grind our chocolate to achieve an unmatched silky texture while remaining pure and raw.
The Amazonian bar is a sinfully smooth 75% dark chocolate bar infused with whole goji and wild blueberries and acai. Naturally high in antioxidants, this bar is wonderful for your energy levels, and happens to be berry delicious! Velvety dark chocolate meets a myriad of tart and sweet berries gifting your palate with an intensely fruity experience.
Take a step into the exotic euphonious country of India with our signature bar. Our handblended Chai spice mix is both warming and pleasing to the palate. Traditional cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, ginger, and black pepper are beautifully united with our 75% dark chocolate and then individually caramelized by hand with our vegan sweet and savory Turmeric Caramel. India is only a bite away!
Poivre Fleur de Sel Caramel, or Salt and Pepper Caramel, brings the world of the sea and the pungent flavor of Poivre rose en grains (red peppercorns) into one savory sweet caramel. A salted caramel like no other, the red pepper brings a flavorful note to an otherwise overdone flavor. Armed with this signature caramel, we hand caramelize each individual bar of mildly dark 72% chocolate.
Whoever decided that nuts and chocolate should go together must have decided it in Heaven, and that’s exactly what we bring to you with this bar! No, not heaven, but a pretty close second in this blissful harmony of pistachios, hemp and divine dark chocolate. Flavorful raw emerald pistachios meet heavenly dark chocolate imbued with nutrient rich hemp – chocolate you can eat and feel good about.
This traditional Mayan-inspired chocolate is warming to the soul and to the palate. Cayenne, cinnamon, and orange all play an integral part to the formulation of this bar. We infuse this saucy blend into our signature dark chocolate and top the bar off with cacao nibs to create a “pop”. It’s not called the Firecracker for nothin’!
Cool, refreshing mint assimilates itself beautifully into this 75% dark chocolate dusted with crunchy cacao nibs, lusciously melting and coating the palate in a smooth waterfall of traditional mint chocolate.
This holiday season we will be offering our Firecracker in vegan WHITE Chocolate! Blended with coconut milk and vegan protein powder, expect an unique experience. This limited edition flavor is blended with notes of ginger, cinnamon, and PLENTY heat. At first cool to the palate, then increasingly hot, this limited edition flavor has come to be known as “Fire and Ice”.
Here we deliver a superior vegan white chocolate paired with high quality Matcha, a green tea powder traditionally used in Japan’s famous tea ceremonies. Matcha is made from gyokuro leaves, intentionally shaded from the sun thus slowing growth and stimulating an increase in choropyll levels. Paired with our vegan white chocolate, it results in a bar with a fantastic full-bodied flavor and creaminess like no other.
For the Downton Abbey aristocrat within you, get lost in our Earl Grey… lovingly infused with Blue Flower Earl Grey tea. It’s a velvety smooth dairy-free milk chocolate, with all the creamy goodness but without the cow. Slightly darker than your average milk chocolate, this bar’s flavor profile will comfort you with soft floral bergamot notes and the dark caramel-like flavor of black tea. Who says you can’t have your morning cup of tea and eat it too?
For our Cafe Au Lait Ole, looks may be deceiving, but this certainly isn’t a dark chocolate. Roasted Counterculture™ coffee is lovingly stoneground with our V White Chocolate, lending its rich, complex flavor with natural hints of caramel. Our white chocolate is the perfect canvas for this flavorful coffee, creating a coffeehouse Cafe au Lait experience in each bite. Ole!
By artfully marbling our creamy, smooth vegan white chocolate into our luscious vegan milk chocolate, we created our beautiful Mocha Vanilla Marble! As this chocolate melts in your mouth, note the hints of coffee and cream in this delicious duo!
A classic pairing! V white chocolate meets house-made crunchy, chocolatey, and gluten-free “oreo” cookies in a blissful union. Creamy white chocolate. Gluten-free “oreos”. Need we say more?
VEGAN White Chocolate! Yep, you read this right! Soy free, gluten free, and incredibly smooth. We take organic coconut milk, maple sugar, and fragrant cacao butter and stone grind everything until the texture is virtually unmatched.
