What makes American Heritage Chocolate so different from the rest???

American Heritage Chocolate is an authentic historic line of products—developed from chocolate recipes from the 1750’s—that celebrates chocolate’s important role in the lives of Americans during the 18th century and is reminiscent of what Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and Ben Franklin would have enjoyed, combining all natural ingredients and exotic spices.

American Heritage Chocolate can be used in recipes replacing semi-sweet chocolate at a one-to-one ratio.

American Heritage Chocolate is made with all-natural ingredients and no preservatives.

American Heritage Chocolate is an artisanal dark chocolate containing 63% cacao.

Mildly spicy, and slightly sweet, American Heritage Chocolate is flavored with a blend of spices and ingredients available during colonial times, including cinnamon, nutmeg, chili pepper, orange, anise and vanilla.

American Heritage Chocolate is Kosher-certified, made without dairy, wheat, peanuts, or tree nuts, and is made in a facility that does not contain peanuts and tree nuts.
