We're thrilled to announce we have a new flavor coming soon. Our Les Misérables chocolate bar will be black cherry in dark chocolate. It will become available on our online store late March/early April. You can preorder it now here!

Our Les Misérables chocolate bar is inspired by the character Fantine. In her youth, Fantine goes on an outing with her lover Tholomyès, her friends and their lovers. The four men and four women take a stroll through nature, enjoying the flowers and eating cherries. This outing soon turns sour when the four men “play a trick” on their mistresses and abandon them. Our chocolate bar contains the cherry of Fantine’s happy innocence and naiveté as well as the dark chocolate that represents her downfall.

We are collaborating with River-Sea Chocolates, for our Les Misérables bar. They are a bean-to-bar chocolate maker who uses organic and ethically sourced ingredients. The chocolate bar will contain 70% dark chocolate originating from Vietnam.
