Why we love it

Smooth and lush with the added caramel-like sweetness of browned butter, this chocolate is made with love, and made to love. When we're looking for a bar that satisfies our sweet tooth while making us feel extra decadent, we reach for this one. The added bit of salt gives it just the right balance to feel like a custom made dessert right out of the wrapper.

How it does good

Elevating chocolate and the standards for producing it

Cocoa farming poses a big risk for environmental damage, forced labor, and child labor. Alter Eco has set out to make a difference in the chocolate world by putting an end to these dangerous and destructive practices. Every single product Alter Eco produces is sourced directly from small-scale farmers. They go beyond the Fair Trade pay standards by providing their partners with targeted assistance with food security, biodiversity, and gender equality. They've committed to compostable, non-toxic wrappers and have been carbon neutral since 2009.

  • responsible sourcing

    Alter Eco pays their farmers 1.3x (33% more) the standard Fair Trade payment. They also help cocoa farmers transition their land to dynamic agroforestry, training over 400 farmers in dynamic agroforestry since 2015.
  • low carbon footprint

    Founder Tristan Lecomte pioneered a method of integrating carbon offsetting within the company's own supply chain to improve soil conditions, biodiversity and crop health, all while making them carbon neutral since 2009.
  • recyclable packaging

    Alter Eco packs all of their chocolates in 100% compostable or recyclable packaging. And as a part of the OSC2 Packaging Collaborative, a leading sustainable packaging innovation, they've been working since 2013 on removing petroleum-based plastic from our landfills, oceans, and planet.
  • supporting key causes

    Not only does Alter Eco give their employees 3 paid days off a year to support causes of their choice, they also make regular cash and product donations to the organizations their team members are passionate about. These include clean-ups, food services, building green spaces in urban neighborhoods, supporting events for Earth Day and MLK Day, and contributing to Imperfect Produce and SF Recology.
  • Certified B Corp

How to use it

Savor one square or finish the whole bar, there's no wrong way to enjoy it.

When you're done...

The paper wrapper, if clean and dry, is curbside recyclable. If contaminated with food waste, it can be composted. The foil wrapper is curbside recyclable once any chocolate crumbs have been removed.

These are general guidelines for broadly-recyclable materials. Check with your local recycler to confirm what they take.

Absolutely scrumptious and utter deliciousness perfection!!

I eat premium chocolate quite often, and between the Magic salt dark chocolate bar, the Theo Orange 70% Dark Chocolate bar, and the Alter Eco Salted Brown Butter Dark Chocolate 70% bar, I can't decide which is better, but I will say that a chunk of each eaten together is like Heaven has been brought to earth!!! Absolutely scrumptious and utter deliciousness perfection!!!

Melt in your mouth goodness.

Just the right amount of sweetness and velvet smoothness. And 70% cacao. A perfect recipe.

I didn't know I needed buttery chocolate.

I've enjoyed all the Alter Eco chocolates of tried, but this is my favorite of the less dark/sweeter bars (I like Classic Blackout and Mint Blackout for a darker bar). The brown butter flavor is hard to describe other than ... buttery, but it's a really lovely flavor and creamy texture.
