Coracao Chocolate | People Love Candy. We Make It Healthier

$30,479

330

Hi! We are Coracao Chocolate. People Love Candy. We believe it should feel as good as it tastes.

We handcraft healthier versions of America's favorite classic chocolates. Every chocolate we craft is Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free & Cane Sugar-Free. We are 100% Certified Organic, Vegan-Friendly & Paleo-Friendly

Are you ready to join us on this chocolate coated journey back to nature - it's gonna be delicious!

 

 

Problem: Conventional candy is packed with refined sugar. 

Solution: Coracao Chocolate


  • We sweeten our chocolate with Balinese coconut palm blossom nectar (AKA Coconut Sugar). Coconut sugar is 50% lower on the glycemic index than cane sugar.
  • Unroasted Cacao Paste is far richer in nutrients and cacao flavonoids than conventional milk chocolate.
  • Our classic recipe is 81% Dark (An average milk chocolate bar can contain as little as 10% cacao).
  • All of our ingredients are 100% Certified Organic.
  • We do not use any artificial flavors, preservatives, or colors.

Our chocolate will leave you feeling bright and energized without the crashes and the jitters.

 

 

 

Human beings have been enjoying cacao for over 3500 years. Cacao is one of the highest antioxidant foods ever tested. New studies touting its numerous health benefits are coming out all the time. Join the tradition, and enjoy our Magical South American Heirloom Cacao.

Our goal is to purchase a new machine that will allow us to meet the growing demand for healthier chocolate.

This machine will allow us to lower our costs, create new flavors and IMPROVE the quality. With your help, we can bring even more joy to health-conscious eaters across the country.

 

 

 Don't fret.There is definitely something for everyone.

Here is a bit more about what you will get.

 

 

Whatever your choice we are infinitely grateful for your support.

We are on a Mission of Service and we all love great chocolate. We have tremendous gratitude for all the joy we have been able to share these past 9 years. We can’t wait to share some more with you.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What if live in a hot climate?  

We use cold shipping to make sure your chocolate arrives melt free. If there is damage to your chocolate we will work with you to correct the issue.  

Is your facility allergen free?  

We have our own dedicated vegan and gluten-free kitchen. We also perform regular Dairy and Gluten allergen test to ensure the purity of our chocolate. We do use Almonds, Cashews, and Coconuts in our facility.  

Where is your Chocolate sourced from?  

We source certified organic, sustainably harvested, heirloom Cacao from Peru and Ecuador. Much of our cacao is wild harvested from land preserves across the Guayaquil region of Ecuador. This helps protect rainforest habitats.  

When will my Chocolate arrive? 

Orders will ship in the order they are placed. The earlier you select your reward the earlier in you will receive your chocolate.

 Does somebody need to be at home to accept delivery? 

No. Our boxes do not need a signature upon delivery. We do recommend that you bring your box inside as soon as you can to prevent melt damage. Please let us know if you have any special requests for delivery. 

Why is Coconut Sugar better? 

Although coconut sugar costs 4x more than cane sugar, we use because our health is worth it. Our chocolate offers a 48% lower glycemic index than cane sugar chocolates. Coconut sugar is less processed. It is rich in many vitamins and minerals including potassium, zinc, iron and vitamins B1, B2, B3 and B6. On top of that, it is one of the most sustainable sweeteners on the Earth. Coconut sugar comes from the tree flower nectar of coconut palms.

Risks and challenges

Our team of chocolate makers is truly allstar and there are always a few risks when a company makes a big move.

That Said, we are an established company with a great deal of experience creating and ship large amounts of high-quality chocolate.

Should our campaign go viral and we far exceed our 30k goal it may become necessary to extend order shipment into December.

I am sure many of you are buying these rewards as gifts. We will commit ourselves to ensuring that your rewards reach you before the holidays.
