A little passion and a little chocolate can do a world of good... At THE COCOA EXCHANGE™ we use our passion for chocolate to empower women entreprenuers here in the United States and in the regions that grow our cocoa. It’s why we’re proud to partner with CARE®, a leading humanitarian organization providing training and access to banking and small loans to female entrepreneurs in Cote d’Ivoire, West Africa. By providing fair access to business funds, savings programs, and education to women in one of our biggest cocoagrowing nations, we’re helping women, their families, and their villages flourish and laying the groundwork for future generations of success. When you make a purchase with THE COCOA EXCHANGE™ you’re supporting an entrepreneur here in the USA and our work with CARE® in Cote d’Ivoire. That’s a treat you can really enjoy.

What does the real impact of CARE® look like? Meet Marie-Paule Sibahi, one of the many women CARE® has helped. For her, CARE® is about supporting her family: “Before CARE® was here, life was very difficult. If you needed money, you had to pay back double. Now it is easier to access money and pay back the loans. That helped women become stronger…Women were able to fend for themselves and start small businesses without having to rely on their husbands. Women are now able to have money of their own.”

And it’s about giving future generations the tools to succeed, like student Maximilienne Dogbo: “Last year I did not have any books, but this year because CARE®, she [mom] manages to pay my books easily. So I think the CARE® is a really good thing. It is important for me, because school will enable me to blossom, and will give me access to my everyday meals. To be comfortable and to be able to support my family.”

10% of the retail sales of each purchase of our Chocolate Martini Mix goes directly to CARE®. #1400C, $22 Ask your Curator about hosting an experience

“Now is not the same as before. Before, my husband was the sole provider and I had to rely on him. Since I started with CARE©, I can fend for myself. It has helped me cover costs for my children and now I have my own power, my own money.” -Elodie Demain (pictured right) Pictured: Elodie Demain

As part of Mars, Incorporated, THE COCOA EXCHANGE™ enjoys being a family-owned business with a centurylong history of chocolate-making. We’re proud of our rich heritage and of our business principles: Quality in everything we do. Mars, Inc. remains one of the few companies that still oversees every step in creating our signature chocolate: from carefully chosen cocoa beans to our unique chocolate-making processes that deliver America’s favorite chocolate. Mars has made a simple, but bold, pledge to use only certified, sustainable cocoa in all of our products by 2020. DOVE® Dark Chocolate is already Rainforest Alliance Certified! Mutuality at the heart of our business. Nothing can serve our purpose unless it serves others, too. It’s why we lead the world’s chocolate producers in Cocoa Sustainability efforts. It’s why we mapped the Cocoa Genome and then shared it with the world. It’s also why we have partnered with CARE®, a leading humanitarian organization, to provide women in Côte d’Ivoire, a cocoaproducing country in West Africa, with access to Village Savings & Loan Associations (VSLAs). With donations from DOVE® and THE COCOA EXCHANGE™, these VSLA groups will bring together groups of women to learn business skills, start small enterprises, and create a brighter future for themselves and their families.

Fast Facts:

Mars also owns five cocoa development centers and two cocoa buying stations around the world where we share best practices with cocoa farmers and train them on sustainable farming practices.

DOVE® Dark Chocolate is Rainforest Alliance Certified. Mars has pledged to only use certified cocoa by 2020.

What’s a Cocoa Nib? Nibs are cocoa beans that are carefully harvested, fermented, then roasted and broken into “nib” pieces, releasing natural chocolate flavor. Add flavor complexity to your meals with a dash of cocoa nibs — enjoy them as a simple snack, sprinkle on salads, mix into popcorn, or bake into desserts!

Pods grow on the trunks and branches of the cocoa tree and come in many colors, from greens to yellows and bright reds.



Small cocoa pods can contain about 10 cocoa beans and large pods can contain about 40-50 beans. Beans are fermented, dried, and roasted. Then, shells are removed and beans are broken into smaller pieces called nibs.



Nibs 2


The sweetest part of the cocoa pod, pulp protects and nourishes the beans while they’re growing. It has a tropical fruit flavor and some cultures enjoy it as a drink. Vital ingredient in the fermentation process of the cocoa bean (one of the first steps in making chocolate!).

Contain cocoa butter and cocoa solids, both of which are needed to make chocolate.


Are ground into a dark paste that is called chocolate liquor (non-alcoholic of course!). Add natural ingredients like cane sugar/vanilla and you have the foundation of a dark chocolate!

Pair like a pro! Chocolate and wine can pair well or pair badly, depending on the type of grape, flavor notes, and tannin content of the wine. High tannin wines can compete with the chocolate flavor, so look for wines lower in tannin content. Better yet, have a Curator create a wine and chocolate tasting for your friends and sip your way to free shopping as a host.

Chocolate Slabs The origins of chocolate as a bittersweet treat are rooted in ancient cultures. Aztec warriors drank “xocoatl,” a bitter, spicy drink that helped them fuel for battle. (It was basically the original energy drink). PURE DARK® products call back to the origins of chocolate - natural and minimally processed. Aztec Spice Slab and Cinnamon Chipotle Rounds in particular recall the culinary roots of chocolate with cinnamon, coarse sugar, and a touch of chipotle heat – ingredients believed to have been used in ancient Aztec xocoatl. Discover the history of the world’s favorite treat with every bite!
