Honeymoon Chocolates

Bean-to-Bar Chocolate Sweetened with Honey

Honeymoon Chocolates officially began in a dorm room kitchen when Co-Founders Cam and Haley first began making bean-to-bar craft chocolate as a hobby. Honeymoon was founded in 2016 and specializes in bean to bar craft chocolate sweetened solely with raw honey. Our first and foremost reason for making chocolate is to address the decreasing supply of cacao and decline of honeybees worldwide. Secondary to us (but just as important) is to allow our consumers to remove refined sugar from their favorite foods. A few positives in using honey compared to traditional cane sugar include a roughly 1.5 time multiple in sweetness (which decrease overall caloric content by 20 calories for a 2.5 oz. bar), a lower glycemic index, and trace amounts of beneficial enzymes, amino acids, antioxidants, B vitamins, and minerals such as calcium, magnesium and potassium. Not only do we give a portion of our proceeds to support honeybee research, we also purchase directly from beekeepers which allows us to support apiarists.

The idea is to minimize mistakes and maximize quality. To begin each batch we use cacao from a few different origins- Peru, Haiti, and Colombia. All of our cacao is sourced either transparently or directly via Meridian and Uncommon Cacao. Processing our cacao begins with roasting. We develop different recipes for roasting each origin and harvest to bring out the best flavors. The beans are then cracked into nibs and the husk removed. The husks are used in our chocolate tea, and the nibs go into our stone-wheel melangers for approximately 48 hours. Once our cacao has been stone-ground, we temper, mold, and hand-package our bars. Our packaging is 100% compostable- which includes sugar cane labels and sustainable paper stock for our wrappers.

Honeymoon Chocolates Haiti 75% Dark Chocolate Bar with Kaldi's Coffee

Haiti 75% Dark Chocolate Bar with Kaldi’s Coffee

With Haiti PISA Cacao

This 75% Dark Chocolate features cacao from Haiti PISA and Brew for Impact coffee from Haiti farmers, as well (roasted by Kaldis’s). The specific blend of coffee offers more than meets the eye – the proceeds for this coffee go towards building and purchasing homes in North Saint Louis. The blend of coffee also helps fund local contractors to conduct the work. They then provide these safe, stable homes for families and follow up with seminars that focus on their needs.

Bringing an accessible and bold flavor to the cacao world isn’t the only thing Produits Des Iles SA (PISA) is doing. PISA launched their centralized processing facility in 2014, which was a revolutionary change for the way the cacao industry worked in Haiti, offering the first high quality Haitian cacao to the US market. Through private sector innovation, PISA partnered with farmers to give them what they really needed: pricing transparency, a consistent market, and an elimination of risk. Today, PISA still provides smallholder farmers access to the specialty cacao market by purchasing wet cacao, centrally fermenting it, and selling it at a higher price for its higher quality. PISA is poised to bring affordable organic beans to the craft chocolate market with an approachable flavor profile of classic chocolate, blueberries, caramel, and vanilla. We partner with PISA to support systems change and reduce structural inequities in Haiti, while acknowledging that the end goal for economic justice has yet to be met and will require long-term partnership across the chocolate value chain.
