Let’s give a big round of applause to our second week’s sponsor – Pascha Chocolate! You may know Pascha Chocolate from food-allergy conferences, which is why they’re doing this week here on Celiac and the Beast. Did you know on top of Celiac Disease Awareness Month, it’s actually Food Allergy Awareness Week! Now, even though celiac disease is NOT a food allergy, we have so much in common with the food allergic community. And since we all eat different – I think it’s really important that we both support each other – especially during these nationally-recognized dates!
If you happen to be at the FARE conference this upcoming weekend in Long Beach, CA to celebrate Food Allergy Awareness, please high-five Pascha for me! They are Bronze Sponsors of the event and the food allergy community is lucky to have a great brand constantly supporting them at events like FARE walks! See you in November in Denver for the Food Allergy Bloggers Conference (which is celiac friendly too so I hope I see you all there)!
Now let’s talk chocolate! Pascha Chocolate creates amazing chocolate – both in bars and chips (and a spread soon to be on the market too we’ll talk about later). The chips are available in 85% Bittersweet Dark Chocolate Chips, 100% Unsweetened Dark Chocolate Baking Chips (100% Cacao) and 55% Semi-Sweet Dark Chocolate Chips – unique blends of dark chocolate that are all safe to eat!
But why is Pascha Chocolate so amazing? Let’s outline some of their many certifications and you can see for yourself:
- USDA Organic
- Certified Vegan
- Paleo Certified
- Certified Kosher
- 1% for the Planet
- Fair-Trade Certified
- Non-GMO Project Verified
- CSA Certified Gluten Free
But probably the best part of it – or at least the part that is most appealing to our community – is what is NOT in their chocolate:
- FREE FROM PEANUTS
- FREE FROM NUTS
- FREE FROM DAIRY
- FREE FROM SHELLFISH
- FREE FROM WHEAT
- FREE FROM SOY (not even soy lecithin)
- FREE FROM EGG
- FREE FROM FISH
- FREE FROM GLUTEN
All of their products are made in a nut-free facility.
So now that you’re interested, check here to see if it’s available at a store near you. If you’re not lucky enough to have Pascha near you, you can order it on Vitacost or Amazon – with all the handy store links here. We’ll be checking in with Pascha Chocolate throughout the week – so you’ll get to learn more about the product!
