Rapunzel Organic Extra Dark Swiss Chocolate is the world’s first 100% organic chocolate bar available
globally. Since 1987, the renowned Swiss chocolate-maker Maestrani has been making chocolate especially for Rapunzel,
using the highest quality organic ingredients. This combination of ingredients and expertise produces a chocolate
superior in taste and quality.

This is an oxidation process to reduce the bitterness that naturally occurs in cocoa beans.
We “conch” our chocolate up to 72 hours. Most other chocolates on the market are “conched” only a few hours.
We do not take shortcuts in this process by treating the cocoa beans with potassium carbonate, which is an
alkalization process that makes the cocoa less bitter, darkens the color, and also makes the chocolate easier to
RAPUNZEL is pure Swiss® chocolate and is processed the traditional Swiss® way, and we do it without the use of
alkalis and other artificial ingredients and chemicals.
We are happy to carry this healthy and delicious chocolate, and also one that provides a vehicle
for your support of many fine organic family farmers in the developing world.
