We are a small chocolate company that's passionate about helping people go sugar free, joyfully and naturally. As we all get healthier, we can do more good in the world and be kinder to one another!
How did this all begin? Founder Lydia Love began having persistent allergic reactions to all sugars (including fruit), which led her on a search for a tasty treat she could still eat. After not finding any options free of sugar alcohols (Erythritol, Xylitol, etc), Lydia began experimenting in her kitchen, working with cacao, stevia, coconut oil and organic flavorings she felt good about using. In 2011 she began selling her newly developed stevia treats. Read Lydia's story in her words
Where's it going? When Lydia met Sean Bonsell in 2013, the two joined their passions for health together to start Pure Love Chocolate. Sean had been dealing with similar health challenges and felt strongly about the chocolate's purpose. With Sean bringing fresh creative energy and computer skills into the mix, Lydia was excited to begin expanding. The two now work full time to run all aspects of the business and hope to find some great people to help ease the load!

HOW DOES OUR CHOCOLATE TASTE?
Sweetness: This is lightly sweetened dark chocolate with its own unique personality and flavor profile. It doesn't taste like milk chocolate or traditional sugar chocolates.
Stevia: You do need to be used to stevia (sometimes it's an acquired taste) to enjoy our chocolate since it is the only sweetener we use across our full range of flavors. The stevia extract used is the best tasting we've been able to find and we use it every day in our own lives as a sugar substitute (in tea, yogurt, smoothies etc).
Texture: We use high quality organic cacao butter that creates a rich smoothness. Some of our chocolates use organic coconut oil making them melt in your mouth quicker.
Everyone has a different sense of taste so we can't guarantee you'll like our chocolate but we sure hope you do! We have a mini-bar 12 flavor sampler pack you can get that has free shipping so you can find the ones you like.
