Winner of Three sofi™ Awards!

It's amazing to think that it all started as a limited-edition project to support our local Burlington Discover Jazz Festival. Moka Fleck, our jazzy blend of 43% dark-milk chocolate, Vermont Coffee Company coffee, and house-roasted cacao nibs was so popular among our local chocolate fanatics that it earned a place in our Organic Chocolate Bar line. Four short months after their debut, Moka Fleck and It's Hot, Honey were honored with three sofi™ Awards by the Specialty Food Association!
