About

Hi Kickstarter, I'm Dave and I make awesome food. Study of Sweets is something that I really love. The amount of joy my chocolate brings to people is something that cannot be replicated in any other way. I opened my retail store about 2 years ago in Hillsboro, Oregon. After a lot of hard work and a lot of challenges,  we are ready to bring our sweetness to the rest of the country. I truly believe that the quality, variety and prices are unmatched and we can build something really great. 

Over 200 unique chocolate bars, 50+ Vegan options,  100+ Gluten Free options. All our chocolate is ethically sourced with 10% of profits going to the Fairtrade Cocoa program. Build your own gift box and eat sweetly! 

Each bar is at least 2oz and most are very close to 3oz. For the quality you will not find a better deal. 

 I will send a survey, so you will be able to choose your bars, when the campaign ends!

 The box (mock up, design is ready to go):

All of our products are hand made using only the finest quality and ethically sourced ingredients. 10% of all of our profits (from the business, not the Kickstarter campaign) will go to the the Fairtrade Cocoa Program,  who work to insure good conditions for cocoa farmers around the world. We will post our donations on social media, on our website and through our newsletter. 

Our partners:

The rewards:

We are launching our website with over 200 types of chocolate bars that you can use to build a custom gift box. We will also have an amazing variety of dipped pretzels and dipped dried fruits.  The quality of the ingredients and the flavor profiles will bring a smile to anyone's mouth. 

You can see most of our flavors in the graphic below or check out studyofsweets.com/collections/bars to see pictures of all the bars (no online ordering yet).  

We are on Kickstarter to find you, yes you, and bring this sweet dream to life. We need to raise funds for a large run of custom gift boxes as well as larger chocolate tempering machines and supplies to ship chocolate year round. 

The dollars and cents:

Back the project, share on social media with a chocolate lover and comment here for any questions or feedback. Thanks for getting involved!

Risks and challenges

There are not many risks involved. I am ready to (and already doing so) produce a ton of chocolate bars.

If we blow way past our goals there will be some timing challenges but we will execute as quick as we can and keep everyone informed. All rewards should be delivered by the end of October if not sooner.

We may not get the custom designed boxes done in time for the rewards depending on the lead times when I order. We will definitely have the white gift boxes ready.
