Does my chocolate contain any soy, gluten, dairy, or nuts?
Currently, none of our ingredients contain soy, gluten or dairy.

Being a small batch producer allows us to minimize the likelihood of allergens contamination – however, all products are produced in a commercial, community facility that may handle any and all ingredients while we are not there.
Do you provide nutrition facts?
Nutrition information can be found on each of the rice milk product pages or on the back of each product label itself. Please contact us for the nutrition facts of the drinking chocolate.
How is the chocolate you use vegan?

Why are your products so much more expensive than regular chocolate products found in grocery stores?
There are many factors that affect the price of our products. One of the main reasons is the cost of the raw ingredients are very high, as well as the labor that goes into making chocolate on such a small scale. The only way to make it sustainable is that the products. In order to adequately pay our workers a living wage, the finished product price must reflect the cost of production.
