Welcome to Dalloway Chocolate! We’re a bean-to-bar craft chocolate company based out of Brooklyn, NYC.
This past year, I confronted a scary new normal: chronic pain. Post my fourth surgery I was told that help manage my pain, the everyday pain and the monthly, that I needed to cut back on my sugar. As we all know by now, sugar is not your body’s friend. Terrible for some and less so for others, sugar for many, especially those who are ill or living with chronic pain, too much sugar can be unhealthy, inflammatory and thus for many, like myself, painful.
As chocolate makers, this was problematic for both of us. What direction does a chocolate company head in when one of its co-founders is told to cut the sweet stuff?
With much encouragement from Kelechi, we set out on a mission to find a healthier sugar alternative. One that was delicious, nutritious and wouldn't mess with the healthy bacteria in your gut. What we came up with was date “Sugar.”
What came from this quest is a healthier bar of chocolate, one filled with not only the powerful antioxidant-rich benefits of cacao, but also they added nutritional benefits of the powerful little fruit the date.
Dalloway Chocolate is chocolate that your body and mind can feel good about.
With love and cacao,
