Our Crowdfunding Campaign
PRE-ORDERS FOR THE FIRST ROUND OF PRODUCTION HAVE NOW STOPPED BUT WILL BE AVAILABLE AGAIN JUNE 27TH OR 28TH!
Update: Production of pre-orders is now estimated to begin in July because we are experiencing a delay in getting our compostable wrappers due to COVID supply chain issues. We now aim to start sending out pre-orders in late July, but there's always the possibility of more delays.
We successfully raised our first goal of $50,000 in just over one day and our second goal of $100,000 in 27 days! All money raised will go straight toward product development to make sure that our chocolate bars are as delicious and ethical as possible.
Thank you to everyone who has been part of this journey so far! We appreciate each and every one of you, and we still can't believe all of the love you wonderful people have given us. Your support is helping our dreams come true!
Who is Trupo Treats?
We're a small vegan milk chocolate company currently operating out of New York, NY! Our journey started last July when we launched a Kickstarter for our Vegan Rice Crunch bar. After the success of that campaign, we sold our Vegan Rice Crunch bars for the past 9 months. This crowdfunding campaign marks the launch of our new and improved Vegan Rice Crunch bar plus 3 new Vegan Mylk Chocolate bars, taking inspiration from the iconic milk chocolate brands you already know.
Trupo Treats is owned by 22-year-old twins Brian and Charlie Trupo, AKA the Veggie Brothers. Brian just graduated in December 2020 with a Master’s of Science in Entrepreneurship from the University of Florida (go gators) and runs Trupo Treats full time now in New York City. Charlie is currently completing his Bachelor's degree of Environmental Science in Scotland.
We stand out from the other companies because of our ethos. Our goal is to create the most ethical, sustainable, and delicious chocolate possible. We are the chocolate company for the people, animals, and planet!

Vegan Mylk Chocolate Bar
This classic vegan milk chocolate bar is all sweetness and simplicity. Crafted from the same fairly-traded cocoa as Trupo Treats’ other vegan milk chocolates, biting into this bar is pure bliss.
