Cameron Ring and Todd Masonis started experimenting with chocolate in a friend’s garage back in 2010. Two years earlier they had sold their successful internet start-up company, Plaxo, and what started as a fun hobby soon became their next passion.
While they may be based in San Francisco and have a tech start-up mentality, this is pure chocolate. Dandelion bars are made with beans from one farm or cooperative at a time, and they contain simply cocoa beans and sugar – no extra cocoa butter, lecithin or vanilla are added, so you really taste the unique flavour of each bean.www.dandelionchocolate.com
