WHAT DOES IT REPLACE? Big corporate chocolate (think Nestle & Hershey) that pay little attention to taste, produces over-processed bars with questionable additives, and have been called-out for sourcing from suppliers regularly using child labor. And, while your Snickers may give you a quick fix, it does nothing for the greater good. Sorry, don't mean to sound preachy here. You do good when you vote with your dollars.
INGREDIENTS Dark chocolate (chocolate liquor*, cane sugar, cocoa butter*, soya lecithin, natural vanilla), candy cane (cane sugar, rice syrup, colors [red cabbage and purple carrots], pure peppermint oil), non-hydrogenated coconut oil, pure peppermint oil. *Rainforest Alliance Certified

ABOUT THE COMPANY Since 1991, Seattle Chocolate Company has created its signature melt-away truffles and truffle bars in the heart of the Pacific Northwest. The original chocolate factory was destroyed by the 2001 Nisqually Earthquake, but entrepreneur, mother, and investor Jean Thompson has never been one to turn down a challenge. At a make-or-break moment for the company, she stepped up and took the helm as owner and CEO. Jean had little industry experience, but was armed with an unparalleled love of chocolate and a whole lot of grit — and soon turned the company into the colorful, thriving place it is today.
At Seattle Chocolate Company we’re endlessly inspired to evolve, to be better to the planet, and to leave the world brighter (and more delicious) than we found it. We have two brands to explore and devour: Seattle Chocolate Collection and jcoco, the ultra-premium sister brand to Seattle Chocolate. Both do good with every bite.
Responsible Giving. With every purchase from the Seattle Chocolate Collection 10% of net profits go to Girls Inc. Seattle Chocolate's mission has always been to make the world brighter through chocolate, especially when it comes to empowering girls and women. As a woman-owned company, we know that magic happens when everyone has a voice; it makes us bolder, pushes us to take risks, and honestly, it’s just a lot of fun. Join us in cheering on the next generation of movers, shakers, and change-makers!
Responsible Sourcing. Our chocolate is thoughtfully crafted from farm to finish. You can feel good about eating the bars and truffles from Seattle Chocolate Company because every aspect of our craft – from the origin of our cocoa beans to the innovative flavor inclusions – is carefully curated and chosen to meet our rigid quality standards.
In 2014, Seattle Chocolate Company started making chocolate bars using Rainforest Alliance Certified™ cocoa. More than thirty Seattle Chocolate Truffle Bars now feature the Rainforest Alliance Certified™ seal.
Rainforest Alliance certification offers a robust and comprehensive approach to sustainable agriculture that focuses equally on social equity, environmental protection and long term economic viability. Additionally, Rainforest Alliance certification strictly prohibits forced labor and the employment of children under the age of 15 on Rainforest Alliance certified farms; additionally, children of workers on certified farms receive access to education.
We continue to adopt other sustainable sourcing practices including eliminating palm kernel oil whose production is associated with serious environmental impact; all of our products now use the more healthful coconut oil. At Seattle Chocolate Company we compost all of our chocolate waste, diverting nearly 20 tons of waste from our nation’s landfills each year. Even our packaging is carefully crafted with a focus on sustainability; we use recyclable papers, and water and vegetable-based inks and coatings.
In addition to our ethical trading practices, Seattle Chocolates creates small batch chocolate confections using only the highest quality all natural ingredients with no preservatives, additives or extenders. Seattle Chocolates is also moving toward 100% non-GMO ingredients. Currently the jcoco line is 100% non-GMO. Less than 1% of Seattle Chocolates’ more than one hundred products, currently include any GMO ingredients, and we are working diligently with our suppliers to verify each new ingredient. All of Seattle Chocolate Company bars and truffles are recognized internationally by the Safe Quality Food (SQF) Program and Kosher certified.
