When a small-batch organic chocolatier meets a leader in the plant-based movement, sweet magic happens. On February 1, just in time for Valentine’s Day, the plant-based brand by CHLOE. in collaboration with Brooklyn-based FINE & RAW will debut two delectable artisanal chocolate bars. Spoiler alert: One variation takes inspiration from the popular FEELZ by CHLOE. collection, featuring 20mg of full-spectrum CBD oil.
Obsessed with making the finest chocolate in the world, FINE & RAW is truly bean-to-bar, starting with organic cacao beans from sustainability-focused purveyors and crafting them into rich, dairy-free bars, convections, and truffles. FINE & RAW chocolate is crafted exclusively with coconut sugar, which extracts caramel notes and deeper, more vital flavors of the superfood.
“This is one of the most deliciously forward-thinking and creative chocolate collaborations we have ever done! The flavors and effects are beyond!” said Daniel Sklaar, FINE & RAW owner and founder.
“I am so excited to launch two delicious chocolate bars to celebrate the month of love! To help bring our chocolatey dreams to life, we’ve partnered with FINE & RAW, whose brand mission and values perfectly align with ours.” says by CHLOE. founder, Samantha Wasser. “I can’t wait for our guests to try our divine treats that make for the perfect gift for a Valentine’s Day sweetheart.”
