Click a question below to learn more about Little Secrets.

What is Fair Trade chocolate?

Glad you asked! Fair Trade certification ensures that cocoa farmers receive a fair price, enabling them to follow good agricultural practices, and invest in their farms and communities.

Are your products Fair Trade?

Yes! All of our products are made with Fair Trade chocolate as certified by Fair Trade USA.

These colors are crazy gorgeous. You’re sure you’re not using Yellow No. 5?

We’re sure, and we’d never do that to you. We use turmeric to make yellow, beet juice for red, spirulina for blue, pumpkin, carrot, and radish for orange, and red cabbage juice for purple. We realize that sounds like an intense drink at a juice bar, but we promise our candy doesn’t taste like the produce section at the farmer’s market.

What does "Nothing Artificial" mean to us?

“Nothing Artificial” means to us that we use no artificial colors, flavors or corn syrup in any of our products.

What’s your Non-GMO Project status?

None of our products contain GMOs and we’re in the process of getting Non-GMO Project verified. We’re big into sourcing responsibly.

What does the 55% Fair Trade Cocoa content mean on the packaging?

The 55% refers to % of “Unsweetened Chocolate & Cocoa Butter” in the chocolate we use in our candies. The chocolate we use in all of our products is Fair Trade Certified.

Are your products vegan?

Our Classic Dark, Raspberry, Sea Salted Peanut, and Seasonal Peppermint candies do NOT contain any dairy in the ingredients, while our Peanut Butter, Toasted Coconut, and Seasonal Spiced Pumpkin Pie do contain dairy. Because Little Secrets are produced in a facility which also produces dairy products, and because we cannot certify the source of our sugar (our coating contains sugar that has been through a non-vegan refining process), we do not call any of our candies vegan.

Do your products contain soy?

All of our products contain soy lecithin, an emulsifier from soybeans that gives chocolate a smooth texture when processed from the almighty cocoa bean.

Is your candy gluten free?

None of our products contain gluten sources like wheat, barley, rye, or oats, but they are manufactured in a facility that also processes products containing gluten.

Are Little Secrets kosher?

Yes! All our flavors are OUD (dairy) Certified by the Orthodox Union.

Are Little Secrets peanut and tree nut free?

There are peanuts in the Peanut Butter and Sea Salted Peanut. All other flavors are manufactured in a facility that produces products containing peanuts and tree nuts. All allergen information is found on the product page by flavor.

Do your products use sustainably sourced palm kernel oil?

Yes! Both our Toasted Coconut, Peanut Butter, and our seasonally available Spiced Pumpkin Pie use sustainably sourced palm kernel oil.

What is the best way to store Little Secrets?

We recommend that Little Secrets are stored in a cool, dry place.

What are the little white dots on some of the blue Sea Salted Peanut gems?

Sometimes the sea salt hiding beneath the candy shell causes discoloration. We can assure you they’re still mind-blowingly delicious!
