We are an Edmonton-based raw chocolate company dedicated to offering decadent treats that are truly guilt-free. We believe that chocolate is health food, not junk food--after all, cacao is super healthy fresh off the tree! Unfortunately, commercial chocolate is usually full of refined sugar and often has other unhealthy additives too. We recognized the need for a healthy alternative that is delicious enough to win over even the most refined of chocolate palates. That is why we decided to bring the market a raw chocolate line that doesn’t compromise on taste, but also doesn’t compromise on health. Our chocolate is true to nature, still full of antioxidants, minerals, and other nutrients in their natural unrefined states. We never use dairy, GMOs, refined sugar, or gluten in our chocolates. All of our products are vegan and made with 100% organic, fair-trade, shade-grown raw cacao. We only pair our chocolate with the most delicious and nutritious of ingredients, including only unrefined raw clear agave nectar as our sweetener to ensure that our low-glycemic chocolates are diabetic-friendly. We do use nuts to replace dairy, so our products are definitely not nut allergen free; however, we do our best to cater to every other major dietary restriction, including gluten-free, low-glycemic, non-GMO, organic, fair-trade, vegan, and raw food lifestyles. We are currently pursuing our organic and fair-trade certification, and our ingredients are already organic and fair-trade sourced.
