We're growing and we want to speed up our chocolate making process. Now we can both get something great! We'll make some delicious rewards for you, like chocolate covered cream cookies, marshmallows, and Belgian chocolates, and your support will pave the way to purchasing a chocolate bar wrapping machine for Cocoa Loco. Thank you so much for your support!

Story: 

In the summer of 2012 the idea of a chocolate company was born. Our goal? To make premium, all natural chocolates. The next stage was a lot of fun, because it's chocolate! We read everything we could find about chocolate, visited factories and shops and I temporarily took a job as a chocolate maker. A few months and countless pounds of chocolate later, we were able to rent some shared kitchen space and made our first 500 bars. Within three days we had distributed the majority in shops and needed to make more...

We're so excited the Kickstarter community can be a part of this! Your pledge will go towards equipment that will speed up the packaging process.

Risks and challenges

As the market changes our products will need to adjust. We prepare for any potential problems by keeping up to date with new trends and speaking with retailers about customer buying habits.
