Limited Edition Blend
Limited Edition Blends are made in smaller batches. You can only get them at ChocoVivo. We have a rotating monthly flavor so check out the flavor for this month under Surprise Me! The Surprise Me Flavors for each month are listed below.
Jesus Maria: Mexican Vanilla Bean and Black Sea Salt
Unlike our other vanilla bean infused flavors, this bar features smoky sweet pods harvested directly from the Jesus Maria Plantation in Tabasco, MX. Once a year, a small selection of vanilla bean is grown along side the cacao. The subtle sweetness of this 85% bar is accentuated with Black Sea salt. Tastes like the sweetness of our 75% Cacao bar due to the vanilla beans, but it’s 85%. A fan of extra dark? This is for you!
Ingredients: Cacao Nibs, Organic Sugar, Mexican Vanilla Beans, Black Salt
Cacao %: 85%
Macadamia & Coconut
Inspired by Hawaii, this seasonal limited edition bar is the full tropical experience in every bite. The macadamia nuts are coming from San Diego from an ex-Marine turned Macadamia farmer. We take these nuts and grind them with the Cacao Nibs to create a buttery bar. We then top it with dried coconut (without sulfites). The Macadamia Nuts are sweeter than your traditional Hawaiian Macadamia Nuts. Try this and be transported to the Big Island!

Lavender helps reduce emotional stress, anxiety, improve sleep, reduce acne, and improve brain function. Hibiscus, a reddish flower, aids in digestion and decreasing blood pressure. Ginger, a rhizome which grows underground, contains Gingerol which is the main bioactive compound in ginger. It's responsible for much of its medicinal properties and is anti-inflammatory.
