French Broad Chocolates
Jael and Dan's passion for chocolate was born in 2003, when they drove a veggie oil-powered school bus to the cacao-rich tropics of Costa Rica and opened a restaurant called Bread & Chocolate. While living there for two years, they visited cacao farms, got to know cacao farmers, and learned about theobroma cacao, the plant from which chocolate is made. Inspired to continue their path in chocolate, they moved to Asheville and founded French Broad Chocolate in 2006.
Guided by their mission to source with integrity and craft with love, French Broad Chocolate builds direct relationships with sustainable farmers and producers and transforms fine cacao beans into craft chocolate in their Chocolate Factory in Asheville, NC. Bean-to-bar to bonbon and beyond means they create not only their artisan chocolate bars, but also a compendium of confections and treats featuring their chocolate paired with local, fresh and organic ingredients. French Broad Chocolate is a Certified B Corp, a certification demonstrating their commitment to being people who use business as a force for good.

Malted Milk | 45% Cacao - Malt flavor with Notes of Cinnamon. Riverbend Malt House provides artisan malts with character to Asheville's brewers. This creamy milk chocolate is reminiscent of a malted milkshake.
