TEMPERATURE SENSITIVE PRODUCT - Although we package well, WE CANNOT GUARANTEE that chocolate will not melt, soften or crack during the shipping process.
Due to the delicate nature of this product, high temperatures, humidity, or handling during shipping may cause chocolate products to melt or crack during shipment. We strongly suggest adding temperature controlled shipping if the temperature is above 20 degrees C, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Chocolate that has encountered melting will appear dull coloured or may have greyish/white streaks and dots. This indicates that the cocoa butter is separating from the chocolate and is rising to the surface. Although not the prettiest in appearance, the chocolate is fine to eat with little impact to the texture or taste of the chocolate.
Chocosol Traders products are manufactured in a peanut and tree nut free facility. In addition, their chocolate is also free of soy, dairy, gluten, and preservatives.
Chocosol Traders are bean-to-bar chocolate makers, meaning all of their chocolates are made fresh from the raw cacao beans. Their cacao is roasted, winnowed, stone-ground, and tempered in Toronto, Ontario.
Their cacao and other ingredients used to make their chocolates are all grown and harvested organically, naturally, sustainably, and ethically. Many of the cacao origins are certified organic; however, organic certification is currently not feasible for many of their small-scale partner communities. This means that not all ingredients are certified organic.
White cacao (also known as theobroma bicolor) grows in ancient forest gardens of Mexico. Not only are these forest gardens habitat for fauna like the , they provide ways for indigenous communities to create safety belts of communal use around natural areas. This is beyond conservation, and is rooted in millennia of ecological and spiritual stewardship. Today, ChocoSol is proud to be part of a small cadre of chocolatiers, chefs, farmers, and artisans participating in the regeneration of the albino cacao, both through seedling planting and intercultural encounter, dialogue, and exchange, as well as through recipe development and intercultural learning. ChocoSol's Jaguar chocolate recipe integrates spices including achiote, mamey seed, and rosita flowers from the ancient forest gardens to give our its memorable taste.
