We are an artisan chocolate company owned by a family who loves to eat chocolate and loves to travel, and loves to eat chocolate when we travel. We even cook and enjoy country-of-the-world feasts in our home! Our commitment is to provide you with fresh, quality handcrafted chocolate truffles designed to transport you around the world through your taste buds. In this way, we can fuse our love of travel, chocolate and global flavors, and you can share some of our favorite travel destinations through the culinary essences of the countries and regions our luscious chocolate truffles represent. Sometimes these destinations are familiar, sometimes fun, sometimes exotic, but always delicious.
Dear Coco truffles are completely dairy and egg free.
We check all of our ingredients carefully to ensure they contain no gluten and we produce all our truffles in a dedicated gluten-free kitchen.
Some of our truffles contain peanuts and tree nuts; therefore, any of our products may contain traces of nuts even if they are not an intended ingredient.
All of our truffles do contain soy.
Yes, all Dear Coco truffle flavors and collections are certified kosher pareve (non-dairy) under Star K. All of our packaging is marked with the Star K kosher symbol.
All Dear Coco Chocolate truffles are vegan-friendly, and contain no egg, dairy or meat ingredients. However, we do use honey in our truffles.
Dear Coco Chocolate truffles should be stored at cool room temperature (ideally between 60 and 70 degrees F) in a dark dry place, preferably in a well-sealed container. Please do not store our chocolates in the refrigerator as they can be negatively impacted by the moisture there. Our truffles are best enjoyed at room temperature for the full expression of flavors and texture.
All Dear Coco premium chocolate truffles are shipped fresh to you. Since we use no preservatives, our truffles should be enjoyed as soon as possible, preferably within 4 weeks (if they last that long!).
There are two types of bloom: fat bloom (generally the more commonly recognized) and sugar bloom. Fat bloom is usually caused by excessive heat or cold which causes a whitish or grey film on the surface of the chocolate. Sugar bloom is generally caused by moisture and condensation which cause grains of sugar to appear on the surface of the chocolate. If your chocolates arrive looking slightly grey, do not throw them away! They are not moldy; chocolate with bloom is perfectly safe to eat and the flavor will not be affected. It just means that the temperature conditions in transit to you were not ideal for the chocolate.
