Valentine's Day Vegan Truffle Box
One day in my last year of college, I was walking through Whole Foods and realized there were no creamy, sweet milk chocolate products that were vegan or allergen-free. I immediately called my identical twin, Charlie, and told him that we HAVE to make a vegan milk chocolate company. Just 3 months later, we launched our first product, our Vegan Rice Crunch Bar. After some extraordinary success, we knew this was the start of our journey Veganizing Your Childhood Favorites™.

Be Kind to the People, Planet, & Animals
FOR THE ANIMALS
Brian and I have vegan for the animals since we were 15 years old and vegetarians since we were 7 years old! As animal lovers, our journey started one Thanksgiving when we made the realization that the food on our plates was actually an animal.
Since going vegan, we've been active in the vegan community and even volunteered numerous times at sanctuaries all around the United States. To this day, we have partnered with over 100 animal sanctuaries and given them over $11,000 in proceeds. We pledge to give over 10% of net profits to animal sanctuaries and other sustainability or humanitarian causes around the world. Our goal is to donate over $1 million a year to charities by 2030.
FOR THE PEOPLE & PLANET
With everything we do, we aim to be kind to the people, planet, and animals. One way we do this is by using Rainforest Alliance Certified Cocoa for our Vegan Wafer Bars. This means that our cocoa is sourced from farms that comply with the standards of the Sustainable Agriculture Network, which aims to promote sustainability in farming and protect farmers, forests, wildlife, and local communities. By using Rainforest Alliance Certified cocoa, we can be confident that our chocolate is kind to all.
Our Vegan Wafer Bars are also kind to the planet because they are wrapped with recyclable wrappers, which prevents the creation of waste from single-use plastics. We hope to one day find a solution for wrappers that can be completely compostable at home!
