Pascha Chocolate comes from the foothills of the Andes mountains. We make our chocolate “Bean to Bar” at the source, meaning the cacao beans only travel minimally from the field to a local village to a nearby chocolate factory. The purer the chocolate - the greater the impact. It’s science!

Pascha is vegan, organic, sustainably sourced (Rainforest Alliance), 1% for the Planet, 100% plant-based, allergen-friendly, gluten-free and includes keto-friendly options.

Our YUMMY chocolate collection includes 55% to 100% Cacao Dark Chocolate Bars and Baking Chips. And our newest product - a single ingredient, Natural Organic Cocoa Powder (currently out of stock due to availability issues).
