Clif Family’s organic chocolates are a nice way to feel good about indulging your sweet tooth. Each chocolate packs a lot of sweet flavor into a small bite. And with organic ingredients, sustainable packaging and tasty flavors, what’s not to love?
What makes our Clif Family Dark Chocolates so irresistible?
Quality Organic Ingredients
Our organic dark chocolate is sourced from Guittard Chocolate located just miles from the Napa Valley in the San Francisco Bay Area. The chocolate is made from Fair Trade Certified cocoa, ensuring it meets rigorous social, environmental and economic standards. The fillings for our chocolates are made with the highest quality organic almonds, butter, coconut oil, sugar and cream.
We pack our chocolates in bright colored, FSC-certified kraft boxes to ensure the product remains fresh, presents as a great looking gift and creates less waste. Each box can be recycled at any recycling location. FSC stands for Forest Stewardship Council and indicates that the materials used in the packaging originate from sustainable sources.
Rich and creamy chocolate make it difficult to stop eating once you open the lid on a box of our Clif Family Dark Chocolates. They are indulgently delicious on their own. But we also like to pair them with our Clif Family Wines or add them to a dessert platter. Our dark chocolates are available in three flavors – Sea Salt Almonds, Sea Salt Caramel and Toffee Crunch. Each with a unique flavor profile that complements the dark chocolate.
Does chocolate really pair with wine?
We checked in with the experts on our team and the answer is yes! Our winemaker, Laura Barrett, prefers the classic combo of Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Almonds with our Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. For a unique tasting twist, Chef John McConnell likes to pair the Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels with our Napa Valley Chardonnay. When you visit our Napa Valley Tasting Room, you can mix and match and decide your favorite pairings.
