This selection of chocolate from other chocolate makers is all dark chocolate; however, some makers might have processed their bars on machinery that also processes milk chocolate, or chocolate with additional ingredients. If you have an allergy, we have linked each company, so feel free to research your specific restriction. We strongly suggest looking at the labels, and while there are no substitutions, we recommend passing any bars you are unable to eat along to a friend.

ALL OF OUR SINGLE-ORIGIN CHOCOLATE IS MADE WITH JUST COCOA BEANS AND SUGAR; NO ADDED COCOA BUTTER, LECITHIN, OR VANILLA. OUR CHOCOLATE IS FREE OF SOY, DAIRY, EGGS, AND GLUTEN, AND IT IS MADE IN A FACTORY THAT DOES NOT PROCESS NUTS.
