Veritas Artizen Chocolate


Pure is perfect, and this chocolate is perfect. I'm just finishing the 70 percent bar of Single Origin Ecuador chocolate and I LOVE it. I can't wait to try all the others. I'm a dark chocolate fanatic with lots of food allergies and have been looking for a vegan bar for decades that is dark and rich and delicious. I FOUND IT! If you love dark chocolate, you'll love this bar.
I think I'm in a chocolate coma😍. Received a sample box today and had to taste everything. I thought the pecan turtles were my favorite until I tasted the brownie until I tasted the bourbon ball until I tasted the dark chocolate bar. It all is incredible and packaged so beautifully and fun. Thanks Veritas!
Bought a bar last week at the Reston Farmers' Market, and was I surprised! Such a great pure cocoa flavor, it stayed a long time in my mouth. This week I bought 3 more bars and I am looking forward to savor them. Keep up the good work!

Veritas is bean to bar, original source chocolate. Produced in Loudoun Co, VA, sourced from tropical farms. Cacao and Sugar is all for these delights.

Veritas Artizen Chocolate owners purchased @jrsnyitalianice in Asbhurn, VA. Here we are combining our chocolate production and chocolate shop into the ice cream shop and will be open year around to provide high quality bean to bar chocolate to Loudoun County and Northern Virginia. Please reach out with any questions or special requests: [email protected]

Produced in the heart of the Loudoun County. Working exclusively with our Direct Trade partner in Ecuador, we ensure the farmers growing the cacao we use to make chocolate are making a fair and livable wage, while upholding sustainable farming practices. Veritas means "truth" in Latin. We chose the name because our chocolate is pure and true. We don't add oils, soy, or emulsifiers to stretch and cheapen our chocolate. It is more intense and rich than traditional store-bought chocolate. If you like local, craft food products, please give our dark, milk, or white chocolate a try.

Operating as usual

First run at Hot Chocolate Bombs...scrumptious! More coming in various decorations in time for holiday gifts.

Ivory Coast police rescue 11 children working on cocoa farms

Shared by our friends at River-Sea Chocolates. We stand with all the craft chocolate producers globally who refuse to support cacao growers in countries where basic human rights are so heartbreakingly eclipsed by greed. Police on Wednesday rescued 11 children and two teenagers working on cocoa plantations in southwestern Ivory Coast and arrested three farmers on suspicion of people trafficking, the police commissioner said.


Interesting and fun to watch, but this is NOT how chocolate is made! This is the tempering and molding of chocolate that has already been made. All of the steps that come before to turn a cacao pod into liquid joy is how chocolate is made...growing, harvesting, drying, roasting, cracking, winnowing, juicing, and 24 hours of grinding! Then you get to tempering and molding. I see this a lot in our industry - "chocolate making" workshops that teach people how to make truffles. It's a bit deceiving. Anyone want to learn how to actually make chocolate? Workshops in our new space coming soon!!!!

How chocolate is made! 🍫
