Chocolate, Spice & Everything Nice
Chocolate, Spice & Everything Nice
Imagine you’re walking down a path. A really long one. It goes back 5000 years. Everything around you is changing. Buildings, people, weather, geographies..everything. But one thing refuses to go away from the scene.
Ayurveda - a 5000 year old sister science to Yoga that focuses on nutrition and aims towards inner and outer well being through simple ingredients, herbs and spices. Our chocolates are inspired by this time tested science of life. Ayu (Life) and Veda (Knowledge).
This holiday season, we collaborated with Burlap and Barrel and Chelsea Market Baskets for an ultra limited-edition gift basket featuring our classic collection and some of our most favorite spices.
Everything about these hand-weaved baskets speaks of luxury and decadence - inside and out.
We picked our favorite classic collection that is loved by our customers and hand picked three spices that complement them.
We hope you enjoy this walk down the history as your taste buds enjoy the complexity and layering of flavors brought together and wrapped in a bar of chocolate.
Black Urfa Chili:
In southeastern Turkey, you'll find black Urfa chili (or its uncured red variety) on almost every table. It's delicious on kebabs and other grilled meats and veggies, cooked into stews and chilis, in salad dressings, sprinkled on fluffy scrambled eggs, and even mixed into brownies and other chocolate desserts for a little extra depth and a hint of heat.
The same species as Saigon cinnamon (Cinnamomum loureiroi), Royal Cinnamon is an heirloom variety not widely harvested or exported, and it exemplifies the intense sweetness and spiciness for which Vietnamese cinnamon is prized.
"This is sour upon sour, a quick barb of citrus, and then the musk of fermentation beneath." New York Times.
Ground Black Lime is grown on a family farm in Guatemala, where ripe limes are dried in the sun until they oxidize, turning black and savory. A versatile ingredient common in Persian cooking, they have a savory, tart flavor that's great on roasted meat or vegetables, in stews and anywhere you'd use lime juice.

Ask Us Anything
Absolutely! In fact it’s one of the most popular uses of our chocolates because the ingredients are the healthiest around!
All of the core ingredients in our products are Certified USDA Organic. Except locally sourced honey. Hard truth is that honey made in the USA can’t be certified organic. When faced with the choice between using cheaper certified organic honey produced in Brazil/Mexico or sourcing local honey and giving up the organic certification on our chocolate, we chose the latter. We believe that sustainability is beyond labels.
While all our products are free from dairy, we use honey as a sweetener in our chocolate bars. We call them ‘bee’gan! Our Drinking Chocolate Mix, Coco Fuel (Maple glazed cacao nibs), Ayurveda Shakti Bars and Chai-Spiced Protein Powder are all vegan.
Yes. We periodically sample our products for heavy metals, and they are certified safe from heavy metals.
Yes, and we have become pretty good at it too! Your products are shipped by 2-Day Fedex or 1-Day UPS/Fedex depending on how far you are from us and how hot it is where you are. All our shipments come with thermal insulation and ice-packs.
Never! Ayurveda recommends not heating honey ever. Our entire manufacturing process uses no flame or concentrated heat. Our honey is gently warmed overnight below 104F in a water jacketed vessel.
Our cacao is unroasted. We never expose it to high temperatures. A natural fermentation process does occur in the open though.
Generally we ship it within 1-2 business days. If you place an order on Friday, we’ll ship it following Monday to avoid the packages sitting on a tarmac with carriers.
Yes you can specify during the checkout process. Can’t find it? No worries. Just drop us a note on firstname.lastname@example.org with the order number and your gift note. We’ll take care of it right away.
Our products contain almonds and coconut. Besides these, there are no nuts in the kitchen. While we thoroughly clean our equipment between each batch, if you are allergic, we’d request you to steer clear.
These are made in our own commercial kitchen space located in Union City, NJ.
We are deeply committed to fair-trade, transparent and ethical sourcing. Our cacao is sourced from small farms and co-ops in Ecuador. Our honey comes from a local apiary in central New Jersey. Rest of the ingredients are sourced from the best possible sources. Lavender comes from south of France, turmeric comes from India, sea salt comes from Greece and so on.
Yes, we only use edible essential oils.
Half a bar contains about 5 grams of sugar. The sugar comes from honey. We don’t use any refined or cane sugars/stevia/erythritol or other processed sweeteners.
Our products do not require any refrigeration. Please store them in a dry cool place at room temperature.
Our Classic Collection has a shelf life of 6 months. The Rasa collection has a shelf life of 9 months. Ayurveda Shakti Bars have a shelf life of 8 months and all the powders have a shelf life of 18 months.
