Our dark chocolate blog starts with the best organic cacao beans available: 100% organic, Rainforest Alliance and Fair Trade certified Hispaniola cacao beans sourced exclusively from the Dominican Republic. Then we take a minimalist approach, hand-sprinkling sea salt on every bar to naturally enhance the chocolate’s flavor.

We looked for the perfect sea salt for our chocolate and we found it: our sea salt is completely natural, unrefined and has absolutely no additives. It is simply sea water harvested from pristine areas in the Southern Atlantic and then solar evaporated, that’s it! The natural minerals and subtle nuances of flavor make it the perfect balance for our organic chocolate.
NATURAL SEA SALT
The original salted-chocolate! This is the bar we started the company with and it’s made with our signature dark chocolate and a touch of sprinkled sea salt. Destined to be a classic.
Salazon Chocolate Co. introduces a new flavor that is a twist on traditional chocolate and caramel bars: Salazon’s new bar adds just of touch of 100% organic caramel (using about 20% less caramel than most other caramel chocolate bars), resulting in a unique, great tasting bar with less sugar and calories. And of course it’s sprinkled with a touch of sea salt to bring out the flavors in the chocolate and caramel.
Salazon Chocolate Co. is proud to be partnering with the Appalachian Trail Conservancy for this new bar. A portion of the gross proceeds will go towards the Appalachian Trial Conservancy’s work to protect the trail. Learn more at www.appalachiantrail.org.
SEA SALT & COFFEE
This is chocolate and coffee in a way you’ve never tried, the Salazon way. The sea salt balances the course- ground coffee and produces a unique taste that we’ve been told is “enlightening”. The coffee we use for our Organic Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt & Crushed Organic Coffee bar would feel right at home in finest coffee shops in the world. The beans come from the Chiapas region in Mexico where they are shade- grown, certified organic and certified Fair Trade. They are perfectly roasted by our partner’s at Larry’s Beans, www.larrysbean.com.
SEA SALT & SUGAR
Salazon Chocolate Co. does not make a milk chocolate bar but we did want to have an offering that was a little sweeter. Of course, we do it a little differently by sprinkling on a little organic turbinado cane sugar from Paraguay. This adds the texture that Salazon is known for and bit of extra sweetness to compliment the sea salt for one-of-a-kind chocolate bar.
Salazon Chocolate Co. is proud to be partnering with the Pacific Crest Trail Association for this new bar. A portion of the gross proceeds will go towards the Pacific Crest Trail Association’s work to protect, preserve and promote the trail. Learn more at www.pcta.org.
SEA SALT & PEPPER
Our sea salt and organic cracked black pepper bar certainly invokes some raised eyebrows upon first glance, but this bar is developing a following. The organic black pepper from India bring outs flavors in the dark chocolate that the salt cannot on its own. Somehow the flavors fit together and complement each other perfectly; it just works!
SEA SALT & ALMONDS
Few flavors marry as well as almonds and chocolate, except for maybe salt, almonds and chocolate! And our new bar combines all three in perfect harmony. We blanket roasted, all-natural California almonds with our new, smooth 72% organic chocolate and hand-sprinkle sea salt to satisfy your sweet and salty craving!
SEA SALT & COCONUT
Imagine breaking waves and sunshine as this chocolate bar takes you away. Organic toasted flakes of unsweetened coconut from the Philippines are covered in our rich 72% dark chocolate and hand sprinkled with Sea Salt from the coast of Brazil.
SEA SALT & CAYENNE
Cocoa in its earliest usage was mixed with hot spices and we kept that tradition with the launch of the new Salt & Cayenne bar. It’s a spicy-sweet combination that will wake your senses. Made with organic cayenne pepper from India, our bold 72% single origin chocolate and a sprinkle of sea salt, there is a kick to every bite.
