Dandelion Chocolate

This limited-edition bar is the first from beans both grown and fermented onsite at the Reserva Zorzal estate and bird sanctuary. With every bag of Zorzal beans we buy carbon credits through Plan Vivo, a carbon offset project that pays local farmers to reserve a portion of their land for the growth of native trees.

Rather than striving for a menu of flavors from the beans, chocolate maker Janelle had full reign to test myriad flavor profiles and coax what came naturally. The results are tangy, creamy, and intensely chocolatey; we find notes of tangy Key lime, dairy-forward clotted cream, and fudge.

If you are gifting this holiday season, we offer holiday shipping. Select your preferred shipping week at checkout to ensure a timely arrival. Gift notes are always complimentary.

Ingredients and Allergens

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.

Our Chocolate Philosophy

Bean to Bar in San Francisco

We’re Dandelion Chocolate, a bean-to-bar chocolate maker in San Francisco’s Mission District. For over 10 years, we’ve been turning cocoa beans and organic sugar into pure dark chocolate. We travel and build lasting relationships with cocoa farmers and producers, then craft small batches of chocolate back home in our factory. With our minimal approach, we aim to highlight different beans’ distinctive flavor notes—from classic fudge to tangy fruit.

JUST
TWO INGREDIENTS

Beans and sugar.
That's all.


Our chocolate bars are just two ingredients: cocoa beans and organic sugar. We never add cocoa butter, soy lecithin, vanilla, flavorings, or preservatives because those ingredients mask the inherent flavors in beans.

PRODUCER
FOCUSED

Good cocoa starts
with good relationships.


Good relationships are absolutely essential to procuring consistently good flavor. We work closely with the producers who grow, ferment, and dry the single-origin cocoa beans we source, so we can share this amazing cocoa.

We hope someday you'll join us at our San Francisco factory for a toasty s'more while watching chocolate makers craft beans into chocolate. In the meanwhile, we'll ship bars and truffles to your doorstep, host you for a virtual chocolate class, or answer (chocolate!) questions you might have via phone or email.
