Kopali Organic Chocolate Review

A Delicious Obsession Banner

Kopali Organic Chocolate Logo

I am a big fan of chocolate. However, I am quite picky with what kind I eat. I am always open to trying new products, especially chocolate! When I found Kopali Organic Chocolate, I couldn't wait to try it. I had a look at their products and they sounded so delicious. The one that I was most interested in trying was the chocolate covered banana. I love bananas, and since I love chocolate too, these had to be delicious!

Kopali Organic Chocolate Covered Bananas



I received 3 different bags of Kopali Chocolates - Chocolate Covered Bananas, Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans, and Chocolate Covered Cacao Nibs. To me and my brother, the chocolate covered banana was the best. I've never had them before and I've never actually seen similar products like this. They have a delicious dark chocolate flavor and are soft to chew. Very delicious. They are all a great quick snack and what makes them even better is that they are superfoods.



Kopali gets their cacao from small sustainable farmers in Peru. They also do their manufacturing and packaging in Peru, which ensures the best quality possible for their customers - freshness and quality taste. Because of this method, they leave a smaller carbon footprint and great impact for small farms. It benefits us in many ways.

In order for them to ensure they make the best possible chocolate products; they listen to their customers and take their feedback. They work very hard to get it just right. They use dark chocolate in their products and it's crafted to be rich and sweet. To make the chocolate sweet, they use "panela", which is a form of cane juice. It's unrefined molasses - they just remove the water. It still holds all of the minerals, fiber, and vitamins as the sugarcane plant.

Benefits of Kopali Chocolates (behind the scenes):
 
  • All this goodness for convenient grab-and-go - our exceptionally premium chocolate candy pieces are presented in personal-size resealable bags.   
  • Our most popular flavor is Chocolate Banana - the soft, sweet, chewy banana inside Kopali's chocolate offers almost a "caramel" (and that banana center has no oils or sweeteners added, rather it is simply pure, exceptional quality banana dried just right).   Chocolate Cacao Nibs are also much loved - they are small bits ("nibs") of the pure 100% cacao bean, covered in Kopali's special chocolate; "chocolate-covered chocolate", how can you go wrong with that???   Chocolate Espresso Beans round out Kopali's 3 most popular flavors, with the intensely flavorful coffee grown on the same land (terroir) as the cacao, for extraordinary flavor harmony. 
  • Kopali Chocolates are certified Organic and Fair Trade, to document the standards we are committed to (and which we go above and beyond).   
  • You can feel good enjoying Kopali Chocolates - knowing they are incredibly pure, with no refined sugar, no oils, no dairy, no preservatives or additives (and of course they are always 100%  vegan and gluten-free).   
  • We are proud that every day more and more people find, delight in, and fall in love with this sweet goodness – enjoying and sharing Kopali Chocolates as part of their day, and feeling good not only about how pure Kopali chocolates are, but also about how choosing Kopali creates positive social and economic impact for the farmers and communities at origin, and positive environmental impact both at origin and globally.

They are tremendously inspired by the fair trade movement in which consumers and businesses are voluntarily paying more than what is established by pure economic market conditions, actually “valuing” fairness.

Kopali (ko*pah*lee) is an ancient Mexican Nahuatl word meaning “incense”, particularly identified with the forms of aromatic tree resins used to this day by many descendents of pre-Columbian Mesoamerica as a ceremonially burned incense.
