Sustainable, Organic Chocolate

Buy organic, fair trade chocolate for an ethically and environmentally conscious treat.

With cold weather approaching, you’ll likely be reaching for a steaming mug of hot cocoa soon. Instead of mixing up that weak, watery hot cocoa you bought at the grocery store, uncover your senses and indulge in a cup of organic drinking chocolate from Dagoba.

Dagoba focuses just as much on the quality of its chocolate as it does on preserving the environment. All three of Dagoba’s drinking chocolates are USDA organic and fair-trade certified, and each flavor has something unique to offer chocolate lovers. The Authentic drinking chocolate is Dagoba’s standard cocoa. It’s made from premium cacao powder, dark chocolate bits and cane sugar. The Unsweetened drinking chocolate is a similar version, made from cacao with unsweetened chocolate and no added sugar. The Xocolatl drinking chocolate is where the chocolate connoisseur strikes gold. Made from cacao with rich dark chocolate, this drinking chocolate is blended with chiles and spices to create hot cocoa the way the Aztecs drank it.

Dagoba is a company dedicated to the art of chocolate. Its motto says it all: “You can deprive the body, but the soul needs chocolate.” The company was founded on more than a love of chocolate, however. Frederick Schilling, Dagoba’s founder, began Dagoba with a mission to create chocolate that was good for people and the planet. Today the company pursues full-circle sustainability. Dagoba uses only organic ingredients, sourced from sustainable farms in Latin America, South American and Madagascar. Dagoba also sponsors re-forestation projects, purchases green power and ships its products in recycled packaging with soy-based inks.

A 12-ounce canister of Dagoba drinking chocolate sells online for $11.95, although it’s also available in natural grocery stores.
