FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

How is your chocolate handcrafted?

We create our confections from family recipes. We hand-dip each and every item, crafting small batches.  Our centers are hand-mixed, hand-rolled, hand-cut and hand-dipped.

Do you make your own chocolate from cacao beans?

No. We create a unique flavor profile for our confections by sourcing  chocolate from quality, sustainable chocolate makers around the world.

Are your chocolates vegan?

Generally no. Our dark chocolate like most dark chocolates contains dairy. However, we do offer chocolate bars that are vegan and dairy-free, as well as drinking chocolate.

Is your chocolate gluten-free?

While the chocolate itself is gluten-free, we use other ingredients that are not.

We try to avoid cross-contamination, but do not recommend our chocolate for those with an allergy.
