We are SO proud today to announce our latest partner and bring you NEW Coco Polo chocolate flavours!
What is Coco Polo chocolate? What's so special about it?
- The company's mission is to make high quality chocolate WITHOUT added sugars...but DEEEEELISH high quality chocolate
- It is sweetened with stevia and erythritol but has no odd stevia taste. The recipe formulations were tested over and over again
- The chocolates are made from fair trade cocoa beans, keto friendly, diabetes friendly and come in vegan varieties
- The founders also select ingredients (some studied as superfoods) to increase the nutritional value of the chocolates AND they do NOT add high GI or empty calorie inclusions that other chocolate companies might. While this is reflected in the price of $5.99, we hope our Customer Friends will like the attention to quality and detail from the company!
- The awesome founders Diane, Sandra and John have 30 years of experience EACH in the confectionery industry! That's 90 years in total! Almost a century!
- The company was inspired by Diane's dad who has diabetes and craved chocolate to satisfy his sweet tooth!
- Coco Polo developed these proprietary high cocoa chocolate formulations for people who prefer to reduce sugar and also suitable for people with diabetes
- The founders have supported many of our Meetups. Past meetup link here
- Read more about Coco Polo and their story on their website
All Coco Polo chocolate varieties are made from fair trade cocoa beans and are gluten free!
Notes from the founders:
- On what inspires them - "the journey has been long and each bend in the road has presented reasons why we should not give up on our focus instead of staying in the sugared world"
- On Canada - Diane has visited Vancouver and Toronto "both special in their own ways....great food, strong trees and great people!"
- On why they manage their own instagram - We felt that it is a chance to hear from our chocolate eaters heart -to-heart, as it is said in The King and I, "Getting to know you, getting to know all about you, getting to like you, getting to hope you like me..."
- On chocolate - "there is a difference between just making anything that reasonably resembles chocolate just to get to use Stevia...we are not about Stevia, we are about chocolate making"
- A favourite quote:
All Coco Polo dark chocolate varieties are VEGAN!
