Hungry for Happy? Take a bite of the sweet life as a Curator.

Don’t quit your daydream… When you’re sitting at your desk or kitchen table with that first cup of coffee in the morning, what do you daydream about? Escaping the rigid 9-to-5 grind? Pursuing a passion project? Spending more time with those you love? Paying off debts? Buying a house? Simply having more fun? This brochure, and the person who shared it with you, will show how you can turn those daydreams into sweet reality by embracing a flexible new way to work.


…pursue your passion with THE COCOA EXCHANGE THE COCOA EXCHANGE is a unique gourmet food company that creates surprising chocolate and cocoa-infused products that are your secret ingredient in the kitchen…and in life. Whether you need to own the bake sale, relax with a little wine and chocolate, impress on Instagram, win the dinner game, or earn some extra cash, we’ve got you covered. Mars Wrigley Confectionery is the world’s largest chocolate company, and you’ve most likely loved their products for years (M&M’s®, SNICKERS®, DOVE® and more). Mars realized that some new products are so innovative and on-trend that they need to be demonstrated and experienced rather than just sit on store shelves. So, they launched THE COCOA EXCHANGE as a boutique brand and innovation partner. THE COCOA EXCHANGE is on a passionate mission to inspire and empower every person to create their own unique recipe for success. Join our Curator community and get started creating yours. Because life’s just sweeter with friends and chocolate!

The gourmet store comes to your door


We believe life tastes better with cocoa. It’s a unique and nutritious superfruit that we lovingly transform into imaginative products that create simple moments of joy in a day: Blackberry Chipotle Sauce (yes, with cocoa!). Bourbon Caramel Bars. Sweet & Spicy Cocoa Rub. Chocolate Coffee. Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Rounds. Our award-winning, classically trained chefs create innovative flavor combinations using our X-factor ingredient cocoa in trend-setting products that can’t be found anywhere else but THE COCOA EXCHANGE. (And it’s all wrapped in gorgeous, sustainable and giftable packaging!) Cocoa adds flavor to food which lessens the need for added salt, fat and sugar. Our curated gourmet collections include the silky smoothness of DOVE® Signature, the authentic adventure of PURE DARK™, the total body wellness of VITALIZE® and the culinary creativity of POD & BEAN®.

It’s love at first bite.


Savor the flavor of feel-good food We CARE®. Equal to our love for cocoa is our commitment to making a difference. Every purchase of our Chocolate Martini Mix supports a female entrepreneur halfway around the world in Côte d’Ivoire, West Africa, one of our biggest cocoa-growing countries, in addition to supporting your Curator’s local business. We’re working with CARE® communities, providing training, small loans and access to education for women because we know that when women thrive, their families and communities do, too. Enjoy a treat that tastes good and does good.

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 handle things myself. It has helped me cover costs for my children and now I have my own power, my own money.
