About

Our mission is to empower people in their quest to live a happy and healthy lifestyle.

What is JOJO's Chocolate Bark?  A combination of dark chocolate, casein protein, cranberries, raw almonds and raw pistachios that is designed to satisfy cravings and keep you fuller, longer.

JOJO's Chocolate bark is a healthy alternative to snacking on junk food. 

What's the scoop?  JOJO's Story:

JOJO's began in 2013 when Jojo was fighting breast cancer but couldn't kick her persistent unhealthy cravings. Jojo searched for a healthy solution but the available alternatives to junk food and sweets failed to satisfy her cravings.

However, the answer came one day while in the doctor's office. A man who recently lost 50 lbs. while following the paleo diet shared his secret with Jojo-- 1 piece of 70% dark chocolate a day.  This chocolate treat curbed his cravings for sugary and fatty foods, without hurting his diet.

Jojo, an amazing baker, started  experimenting with dark chocolate combinations that day, quickly coming up with the amazing recipe for JOJO'S Chocolate Bark.

Jojo's son Sterling, home from college for the summer, tried the chocolate and knew it was special.  Sterling shared the healthy treat with his workout buddies who clamoured for more.  This gave Sterling the idea to introduce the chocolate bark into the athletic market.

Jojo and Sterling founded JOJO's Chocolate Bark and debuted their product at a CrossFit Competition, Fitness Elevated 2013. At the competition they handed out samples and sold 7 oz. packages. 

JOJO'S sold out in a few hours!

Sterling then took JOJO's to CrossFit gyms and women's work out studios where members rapidly became attached to the delicious, healthy snack.  Next, the team took JOJO's to small retail locations, including Nature's Finest, Good Earth and Day's Market.

Thanks to the positive feedback of reviewers like Michaela North (of Hungry Fitness) Taralynn McNitt (of The Undressed Skeleton) Primal Bites, KSL News, and Breaking Muscle, JOJO's has fans and customers all over the country.  Unfortunately, we are not locally available throughout the US and must ship JOJO's to all our awesome friends.

The shipping process has been costly for everyone, so now, JOJO's is ready to take the next step.  We need your help in order to manufacture JOJO's in quantities large enough to sell to large health food retailers such as Whole Foods and Sprouts, bringing JOJO's closer and cheaper to you!

What's in it for you?  JOJO's Ingredients:

 70% Dark Chocolate is a superfood, meaning an especially beneficial food, low in calories and nutrient dense.  Our dark chocolate is a clean, low sugar, superfood that is high in antioxidants and bursting with a rich, satisfying flavor.

Cranberries are also a superfood and add an extra touch of sweetness to our chocolatey goodness.

Raw Pistachios are also a superfood, unprocessed, high in protein, low in fat and excessively delicious.

Raw Almonds are JOJO's fourth superfood component, adding an extra crunch and delicious flavor, almonds are also high in protein and are one of the lowest fat-content nuts.

Casein Protein is a protein processed from milk, it is a slow release long lasting protein, ensuring that a small serving of JOJO's is both filling and satisfying for several hours.  Learn more about casein protein from this Men's Fitness article and learn more about our non-GMO protein producer from the label below.

What is JOJO's good for?

 

 Many doctors and nutritionists recommend an ounce of dark chocolate a day, and so do we!  But JOJO's goes beyond your basic dark chocolate.  We create a delicious product with protein and superfoods incorporated for your health and enjoyment.  

JOJO's is so richly delicious that a single piece is a satisfying mid-morning or mid-afternoon pick-me-up, post work-out snack, or evening treat.

Our serving size is one ounce a day, and we deliver JOJO's in 7 oz. packages, the perfect weekly supply.

We are here on Kickstarter because we struggle to live healthy lives and have created a snack that enables us to do better.  When snacking on JOJO's we meet our health and fitness goals and we want to enable you to do the same!

JOJO's has lots of awesome customers, but we are too big for the kitchen!  We have a manufacturer lined up, but in order to bring you a fairly priced product, we need to produce in bulk.  Here is what your contributions will help us achieve:

  • Producing our first commercial production run
  • Pre-ordering ingredients in bulk
  • Redesigning a more eco-friendly and reusable packaging for JOJO's

Risks and challenges

We've spent most of the last year working with our suppliers and now recently with our manufacture to mitigate as many risks as possible, yet we know there will still be hurdles along the way. We will always be transparent with our community about challenges, including these:

Ship date: We have built in extra time for the manufacturing process and are confident we will ship by the projected dates, but there is always a chance that things will take longer than planned.

Product changes: We do not plan to change the 5 main ingredients but we only plan to improve. There is a slight possibility that we might need to add a small amount of coconut oil to allow the cutting and packaging process to be simpler and more efficient. We'll only make changes that enhance the product experience.

Supplier coordination: We work with a variety of suppliers to source the best materials and ensure the product is developed correctly. Each supplier has its own challenges, which may affect its partners, including us.

We will be completely involved with our supporters during this process and promise to forward any updates regarding our project in a timely manner. Of course, we are open to any feedback, suggestions or questions along the way.
