We then immersed ourselves in the world of chocolate. After visiting organic cacao farms in the Dominican Republic and perfecting the recipe, we launched Salazon Chocolate Co., the first salted chocolate brand on the market. Salazon’s chocolate bars are made from 100% organic, single-origin, Rainforest Alliance and Fair Trade certified beans in the USA, and each bar is hand-sprinkled with natural, solar-evaporated sea salt.
In the summer of 2009 we were on a backpacking trip to Utah. We’d brought along the usual snacks, you know – energy bars, salty trail mixes, and, as always, some organic dark chocolate bars (a great super food). As we sat around the campfire that night, it struck us that a simple, salted-dark chocolate bar would be the perfect energy food. The idea for Salazon was born.
