Q: What does the brand name CO2COA mean?

The name CO2COA is a thoughtful and playful way to pay homage to Rainforest Alliance Certified cocoa, and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions (CO2) in product and packaging sourcing. CO2COA -- the marriage of CO2 reduction and COCOA.

Q: How is CO2COA chocolate animal free?

Animal-free chocolate means just that: chocolate produced without any animal involvement (like in dairy!). We maintain all the careful crafting art from cocoa to silky smooth chocolate, but swapped the milk with animal free dairy protein from Perfect Day. The Perfect Day animal free dairy is created using a fermentation approach that cultivates microflora –similar to the process that makes beer fizzy, yogurt thicken, or bread rise.
