Info: About 45g Per Bar - Various Flavours
Denman Island Chocolate bars are made with the finest organic ingredients - bittersweet, Fair Trade dark chocolate, most with a high (63% or 72%) cocoa mass content, which makes for a more intense, less sweet flavour that is rich and clean, and other certified organic ingredients like dark roasted espresso beans, freshly toasted hazelnuts, and coconut, depending on the type. They're all gluten free. This British Columbia company donates at least 1% of their gross sales to environmental causes.
The Chocolate Factory: At Denman Island, they believe in the importance of beauty in all aspects of their business, starting with their factory. It's not all concrete blocks and smokestacks -- they wanted to do things differently. Their factory is perched on top of a bluff overlooking ocean and mountains, surrounded by trees that are protected by a permanent covenant they put in place in 2006. They love being surrounded by this beauty, and also think it's important to create and be a part of beauty in order to make a product that we can make and send to you with the realization that it doesn't just taste good -- it is good.
