About

Organic and Fair Trade Chocolates

Starting back in 2011 I opened Cocoa and Honey here on etsy. It was my first attempt at selling my chocolates after years of working as a professional cook and later pastry cook.

I've always loved chocolate! In pastry school it was the one thing that just amazed me. You can melt down this huge bowl of gorgeous chocolate and then play with it. That is what I wanted to do with my life, that is how I wanted to spend my time and that is how I want to reach people.

I joke with my regulars about having a candid camera around when people try my chocolates for the first time. A lot of double takes, a lot of amazing smiles and sometimes embarrassed laughter. It's amazing how one bite can create so many emotions.

Starting out in a market where there are already so many options I really wanted to stand out with making organic and fair trade chocolate. Not everyone knows where our food comes from but people are getting really savvy, I wanted to make sure that the flavours were there and that being organic and fair trade would just be a little extra sweetness.

Business has been great! I've expanded my line of offerings many times now along with stockist from Nova Scotia and soon Ontario and the US too.

It's a sweet life and I only hope to make it sweeter.

We try to represent our products as best we can in the photos we provide. If you have any concerns regarding what you are purchasing please contact us before purchasing.
Shipping
All orders are made weekly and usually ship within 3 business days.

Shipping prices are estimated and calculated by country. If the shipping charges are overestimated by more then $3 shipping overages will be refunded.

Please note that our orders are shipped from Canada and shipments to the United States and Internationally may take 5-10 business days. We try to ship everything as quickly and economically as possible. If you need things faster convo us so that we can talk about your options.

We try to keep as green as possible so when your package arrives it may be in a re-used box. If we are using a re-used box we wrap using kraft (brown) paper. If this is a gift let us know and we will package it in a new box.

WARM WEATHER SHIPPING:
Due to the warm weather of the season sometimes chocolate melts. I do my best to package and ship the chocolate safely and quickly but I cannot control what happens in transit. Any melting will be at the risk of the customer.
Refunds and Exchanges
Due to the nature of our products (food) we do not accept returns. If for some reason we have sent you the wrong order we will work to resolve it right away.

USA & INTERNATIONAL SHOPPERS:
Due to borders we cannot guarantee arrival times and cannot help if something gets stopped at the border. If your package is stopped at the border they will notify us but it may take a few days before they do. If this should happen we may require additional information from you like a phone number so they can contact the purchaser directly. If you are worried about your purchase arriving in time please include your phone number when purchasing.
