Chocolate Products

ChocoSol chocolate is made from a unique blend of forest-garden cacao varieties that are sourced directly from indigenous communities in Mexico, Dominican Republic and Ecuador. We believe in supporting small plot intensive forest garden cacao that we consider to be one of the best examples of regenerative agro-ecological food production. 

Our horizontal trade relationships with the primary growers go beyond fair trade and organic in both growing conditions and in pricing. Moreover, our trade is relationship based on dialogue and reciprocity with the primary growers through forest garden seedling projects, soil making workshops, and chocolate making.

ChocoSol chocolate is:

  • Free of nuts, dairy, soy, and preservatives.  We only use whole ingredients to make a chocolate that is food, not candy.
  • Low-heat, low-sheer stone ground chocolate rooted in the tradition of the food of the gods, drawing upon the best of the artisan European aesthetic of the gods tradition.
  • Made bean to bar in our ecological chocolate factory in Toronto, Canada.

We make chocolate that is good for mind, body and soil!

  1. Best chocolate ever. Kind service, above and beyond every possible expectation. Great people, great cause, awesome chocolate!

  2. Amazing, delicious chocolate; unlike any I’ve ever tasted before … so rich, pure and flavorful. My daughter Sherry (Toronto) buys it for me at Christmastime. I just love it and truly appreciate that she brings it home for me each year! Thank you for the kind care you take in producing this wonderful and nutritious product.

  3. My son who attends school in Toronto brought me home some chocolate from your store this past weekend for my Birthday. Best chocolate and present I have ever got. Sure wish you could get your product up in this area (Owen Sound) I am craving it already and it has only been a couple of days since he returned to the City. Fabulous Chocolate and Novel Idea. Sue

  4. Beautiful product, purchase it at Anise Apothecary in Burlington. Would love if the mint chocolate flavour was available year round, it is by far the favourite!

  5. Amazing chocolate, which I discovered while visiting a friend in Toronto. Now I’m getting her to mail me some to Montreal : )
    Lovely shop, super-nice people and service. Everything we eat should be of the same material and human quality as your products. Long live Chocosol!

  6. Absolutely amazing. The taste is so clean and has the right amount of sweetness. The chocolate is airy, yet crumbles and then melts in your mouth! I love the raw dark chocolate in the wheel. I travel far to get this chocolate.

  7. Absolutely some of the loveliest chocolate I’ve tried and I had a chance to pick some up when going back to visit family in Toronto! (And I consider myself a devout chocoholic :P!) On par, if not better, than some of the high quality chocolate I’ve tried from chocolatiers/chocolate-makers like Rózsavölgyi Csokoládé (Hungarian), Zaabar (Brussels), Amedei (Italian), Valrhona (French), Soma (Toronto) and others. The darkness bar was perfectly balanced and I’ll be looking to ask my aunt and uncle to ship some drinking chocolate over to England for Christmas to try, too!

  8. Pulled out the 5 Chili Bullet I purchased at the Union Station market to save the dessert day! Needed a gluten free, dairy free dessert fast. Poached pears (skin on with vanilla bean, cinnamon, orange zest and peppercorns) drizzled with a healthy dose of 5 Chili Bullet chocolate. It was sublime…thank you for sharing your art.

  9. The best..I will not go with any other chocolates.They satisfy my taste buds tremendously and I like the people working there, the mindfullness towards the environment and the social consciousness

  10. Last week my wife and I visited Halifax, Nova Scotia. (We are from England). Whilst there we went to ‘Fred’s fine foods’ and bought a bar of your 5 Chili Bullet. What a mistake! We should have bought much more. Your chocolate is superb. With an expresso and a good Scotch or Irish pot still it is the sublime digestif. Thank you.
