Sweetening the Deal on Chocolates

Sweet Weeks are here!  Now through Wed. Dec. 15th, a purchase of 6 or more of any chocolate or confection item will be 10% off. Our wall of chocolate has never been sweeter, whether you’re looking for stocking stuffers or gifts for friends and co-workers–or treat yourself, we won’t tell!

Here are some of the highlights from our chocolate section (which is better than it’s ever been); we’ve sure come a long way from the chocolate bars our parents ate.

While you can check out their full article here I’ll highlight the nine people and products carried at Bi-Rite that made their cut!

#6 & #7: Brett Beach and Tim McCollum: Bean to Bar Chocolate Makers:

Brett and Tim started Madécasse in 2008 after doing years of Peace Core work in Madagascar. Their chocolate products are not only incredible, but also responsible. Did you know that although 85% of the world’s cocoa is grown in Africa, less than 1% of the world’s chocolate is made there? Brett and Tim are determined to change that!

#11 & #12: Michael Kirban & Ira Liran: Coconut Water Popularizers:

Michael and Ira are the founders of Vita Coco, one of our top selling coconut waters in the market. Nothing perks me up after a long night of celebrating like delicious, chilled coconut water! I never thought I’d be a convert, but there’s something addictive about the sweet, clean taste that I can’t get enough of.

#17: Matthew Cain: Eco-Wine Importer:

Carbon footprint that’s half that of the average wine bottle? Check. Organic wine? Check. Reduced packaging with a Tetra Pak container? Check. Totally legal (well, kind of) for the park? Check! (more…)
