Rox Chox is a really delicious chocolate candy bar.
Rox Chox is more than a candy bar, though. The unprocessed raw cacao and coconut in Rox Chox are chock full of nutrients, enzymes, and feel-good antioxidants, and the only sweetener we use is actually recommended by dentists because it promotes oral health. But it is so delicious most people are surprised that it is sugar-free and safe for diabetics. We are happy to provide a sweet and amazingly healthy treat to folks who have food sensitivities and our Rox Lab is free of most allergens, but Rox Chox is also for anyone who just loves delicious chocolate. This richly decadent chocolate treat began in the winter of 2010 when I, Rochelle, had doc's orders to go on a very restricted diet and couldn't eat sugar of any kind. I didn't care too much about carbs or refined sugar, and fruits were really hard to give up, but I could not give up chocolate. In a seventh grade time capsule I included chocolate chips and asked my future self if it was wrong to sneak chocolate from the kitchen at night (it's totally ok, child-self - here's some Rox Chox). I come from a long line of chocolate lovers. I love chocolate.
And yes, it really is good for you.
So over the course of a snowy cabin winter in the Willamette National Forest in Oregon, I experimented with recipes. By springtime I had it down. I always traveled with Rox Chox and shared it sparingly with friends. They told me that it was so delicious that I had to sell it. I had been working at People's Food Coop as a collective manager for four years in the Grocery department, so I knew that there really was nothing else like Rox Chox out there. A delicious sugar-free chocolate that is super good for you? And Vegan? And Raw? And almost all Organic? And Fair Trade? For Real!
Rox Chox was born in a whirlwind. In May of 2011 I got started with the research on legalities, rented some commissary time, did a trial run of bulk Chox at People's, and decided to go for it. In June, my partner River, who is a Culinary Professional, joined me as head of production. We have been paying for everything as we go, building this business one step at a time as sustainably and compassionately as possible, and we have been delightfully rewarded by so many of our fans sharing their love for our lovingly crafted chocolate.
Today I described Rox Chox as simply, 'Very rich, very dark, sweet, and a little bit salty'. Because there are the top-notch ingredients and business ethics behind it, but what really counts is what is in your mouth. One of the most rewarding moments is when I am giving away Rox samples and I see the look of surprise and delight on a first-time Rox taster's face. The taste of this chocolate... it is to LIVE for!
