From the choice of the organic, fair trade, non-bitter beans, the extra cleansing and dehydrating processes, stone grinding small batches 5-7 days at low temperatures to retain nutritional integrity, the choice of low glycemic, highly nutritive sweeteners, making them safe for diabetics, and good for everyone, right down to the superfoods we use to create our confections, we have a passion for health, and go the extra mile to make sure our chocolate is the best it can be.
We try to keep our prices as affordable for everyone as possible, but prices for some of our ingredients are going up. We refuse to cut quality, so STOCK UP THIS WEEK – prices will be going up after the new year.
