The Cocoa Exchange Popup
February 8 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
You Know Mars, meet The Cocoa Exchange
Our passion for cocoa began over 100 years ago in the Mars family kitchen in Tacoma, Washington, where Frank and Ethel Mars started a business selling their chocolate. Today, that family business has grown into Mars Wrigley Confectionery, producers of America’s favorite chocolate brands (M&M’s®, Snickers®, DOVE® and more) and the world’s largest chocolate company.
Mars realized that some new products are so innovative and on-trend that they need to be demonstrated and experienced rather than just sit on store shelves. So, they launched The Cocoa Exchange in March 2017 as a boutique brand and innovation partner with independent Curators who bring the gourmet store directly to you.
It’s love at first bite
Cocoa is our X-factor ingredient. It is a unique and nutritious superfruit that we lovingly transform into products that create simple moments of joy in a day. Our curated gourmet collections include the silky smoothness of DOVE® Signature, the authentic adventure of PURE DARK™, the culinary creativity of POD & BEAN® and the total body wellness of VITALIZE™. One taste will bring a smile to your face!
Our chefs craft products that delight
Our award-winning, classically trained chefs create innovative flavor combinations using this secret ingredient of cocoa in trend-setting products that can’t be found anywhere else but The Cocoa Exchange™. (All in gorgeous, sustainable and giftable packaging of course!)
Our curated gourmet collections include the silky smoothness of DOVE® SIGNATURE, the authentic adventure of PURE DARK™ and the culinary creativity of POD & BEAN™. Products are offered singly, in value sets and in gift packaging.
Manufactured in the U.S.
We keep the quality bar high by controlling our products from cocoa bean to finished product and manufacturing in the USA. Many of our products are hand-crafted in small batches for that extra attention to detail you can taste.
And we back everything with our “Love It Guarantee” – if you don’t love it, we’ll replace it. (But you’re going to love it because…chocolate!)
