I can hear the delighted gasps now, “Chocolate chips without dairy AND soy?! Not even soy lecithin?” Indeed, Pascha organic chocolate chips are the purest I’ve ever seen. Not only are they dairy-free and soy-free, they’re also 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 Pascha Organic Chocolate Chips boast a little more versatility. And they come in an array of varieties, including semi-sweet, dark, unsweetened, sugar-free, and even white chocolate!
Tasting Notes for Pascha Organic Chocolate Chips
They’re perfect for tossing in recipes (like cookies or even shakes!), melt with ease, and are deliciously snackable, in my opinion. They’ve recently added a couple varieties that we haven’t tried, and their Rice Milk Chocolate Chips appear to be temporarily or permanently out of production. But below includes all that you can buy right now.
55% Cacao Semi-Sweet (also in Bulk Size)
These perfectly-sized bites are almost milky in flavor and consistency, but with a rich cocoa liquor vibe. These are one of my favorite sweet delights for snacking on out of hand. (Used in this recipe: Chocolate Pumpkin Butter Cups.)
Nutrition (per 1 tablespoon): 90 calories, 6g fat, 8g carbs, <1g fiber, 7g sugars (includes 7g added sugars), <1g protein.*
85% Cacao Bitter-Sweet (also in Bulk Size)
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. (Used in these recipes: Cheerful Cherry Chocolate Chip Shake; Chocolate Pumpkin Butter Cups.)
Nutrition (per 1 tablespoon): 90 calories, 7g fat, 6g carbs, 2g fiber, 2g sugars (includes 2g added sugars), 2g protein.*
100% Cacao Unsweetened (also in Bulk Size)
These chips are a pure dark with a slight bitter aftertaste, yet are smooth overall. They’re 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.)
Nutrition (per 1 tablespoon): 100 calories, 8g fat, 4g carbs, 2g fiber, 0g sugars (includes 0g added sugars), 2g protein.*
Unlike Pascha’s Unsweetened variety, the Zero Sugar is sweetened with a combination of erythritol and stevia.
Nutrition (per 1 tablespoon): 70 calories, 6g fat, 7g carbs, 1g fiber, 0g sugars (includes 0g added sugars; 4g sugar alcohol), 1g protein.*
White Chocolate (also in Bulk Size)
These have been reformulated, and reportedly melt better and hold up better in recipes.
Nutrition (per 1 tablespoon): 90 calories, 7g fat, 7g carbs, 0g fiber, 4g sugars (includes 4g added sugars), 0g protein.*

What Others Are Saying ...
The quality of these dairy-free chocolate chips is unsurpassed. They go above and beyond with ingredient sourcing, and whatever processes they use seem to work. The 55% is almost milky in taste, and the 85% is even snack-worthy. I don’t usually like chocolate that dark, but these are impressive. The one caveat is the price. I know you get what you pay for, but premium chocolate isn’t usually in my budget.
