Brooklyn Dark chocolate

Brooklyn Dark was founded by Lev Kelman in 2011. After receiving his Grand Diplome from the Italian Culinary Academy in New York City and from Alma in Parma, Italy, Lev Kelman embarked on many delicious and adventurous chocolate experiments, mostly in his kitchen with close friends and foodies alike.  His passion for the creating a sublime chocolate treat – using the finest organic ingredients and eliminating negative additives such as dairy – led to 4 unique flavor varieties: Classic Hemp, Open Sesame, Orange Silk and Moroccan Spice.  Brooklyn Dark contains another chocolate first – hemp seed – a whole plant super-food.  Hemp is one of the most nutritious plants on Earth. It is an excellent source of easily digestible protein and doesn’t need pesticides in order to grow, preserving the environment and not polluting ecosystems.  Our certified organic hemp seeds contain no THC.  Hemp won’t get you high, but eating Brooklyn Dark will put a smile on your face.  You are one chocolate away from a happier day!

Brooklyn Dark chocolate is also environmentally friendly, made with certified Rainforest Alliance organic chocolate, with all cacao farmers are utilizing sustainable agricultural methods.  Blended to 63% cacao, Brooklyn Dark appeals to sophisticated chocolate consumers, who prefer dark chocolate containing between 60% to 70% cacao.  Brooklyn Dark is artisanal – created by hand with love, in small batches and wrapped by hand.  We’ve replaced chemically refined sugar with less refined organic evaporated cane juice – and unlike other bars, it is not the first ingredient, which is chocolate!

There are no preservatives in Brooklyn Dark. Organic Soy Lecithin, an emulsifier, is used to keep the ingredients from separating. There are no additives such as nuts or gluten to which many people have allergic reactions. Only vegan ingredients are present in Brooklyn Dark. Dairy is harmful to humans and to the animals involved in its production. We at Brooklyn Dark seek to maximize good decisions to help make society more humane
