Above and beyond in quality, these "traditionally-sized" chocolate bites are certified organic, fair trade, kosher parve, vegan, non-GMO, and produced in a gluten-free top allergen-free facility. But most importantly, they have an amazing, rich, pure taste. The milky semi-sweet is rich with a cocoa liquor flavor, the 85% offering alluring depth of flavor without too much better, and the 100% unsweetened are in a versatile league of their own.

I can hear the delighted gasps now, “Chocolate without dairy AND soy?! Not even soy lecithin?” Indeed, Pascha organic chocolate chips are the purest I’ve ever seen.

Pascha Organic Chocolate Chips - Semi-Sweet, Bitter-Sweet, and Unsweetened (Non-GMO, Fair Trade, Vegan, Gluten-Free, and Free of Top Allergens)

Not only are Pascha organic chocolate chips dairy-free and soy-free, they’re also certified fair trade, vegan, kosher parve, and non-GMO verified. They also have full ingredient trace-ability, and are made in a facility free of gluten and top allergens. Pascha chocolate bars possess all of these wonderful properties, too, but I’m a chip fanatic.

Tasting Notes for Pascha Organic Chocolate Chips

They’re perfect for tossing in recipes (like cookies or even shakes!), melt with ease, and deliciously snackable. Unlike many ordinary brands, Pascha organic chocolate chips come in three varieties:

55% Semi-Sweet

These perfectly-sized bites are almost milky in flavor and consistency, but with a rich cocoa liquor vibe. These are currently my favorite sweet delight for snacking on out of hand. (Used in this recipe: Chocolate Pumpkin Butter Cups)

85% Bitter-Sweet

This is a fantastic deep dark chocolate for true cacao fans. They have just the right amount of sweetness for noshability (I think this should be a new word, no?), but also make a nice not-to-sweet, contrasting addition for cookies and truffles. (Pictured below, and also what I used in these recipes: Cheerful Cherry Chocolate Chip ShakeChocolate Pumpkin Butter Cups)

100% Unsweetened

These chips are a pure dark with a slight bitter aftertaste, yet are smooth overall. Fantastic for baking, when you want to use your own sweetener option, or for true cacao purists (this variety is paleo, I believe). (Used in these recipes: Chocolate Banana Monkey Pops, Pure Chocolate Truffle Snacks)

    Me again! I havn’t been able to find anywhere in Australia that stocks your chocolate – is there anywhere? If not I can maybe order it from you and have it delivered to an American address for sending on to me – it’s spring there I think, and heading into Autumn here, so temperature wise it might still reach me OK. As it’s the chocolate chips I want it probably wouldn’t matter much if they melted on the say anyway!

    Hi Alisa, I’m desparately trying to make the equivalent of a Cadbury milk chocolate Fredo frog for my young grandson who is on the autism spectrum. It needs to be free of dairy, gluten, soy and corn. I found the Pascha dairy free rice milk chocolate baking chips online which I hope to order (I live in Australia). I clicked on a link which says you have advice on the best way to melt these chips (which I would need to do in order to make them into frogs), but when I clicked on it it came up as unavailable. I would be extremely grateful if you could email me any advice you have (it looks as though I will need to increase the sweetness too as the ones he is used to (and can’t have any more) are quite sweet. Any help and advice you ccan give would be great. Warm regards, Sue
