Great Bean was founded by choco-fanatic Nora K after she became privy to chocolate’s myriad health benefits – or ‘beanefits’, one might say. All of Great Bean's bars contain unroasted cacao beans, which helps preserve their exquisite chocolate-y flavor and insane amount of age-battling antioxidants, brain-boosting chemicals, and body-loving minerals. We've dared to enhance all that magic with the addition of proprietary herbal blends, which we add to all of our bars. We handcraft our chocolate in small batches in sunny Austin, Texas. We never use any questionable products in our bars; no soy, no GMO, no preservatives, and no gluten. Why so picky? Well, Great Bean aims to deliver the most delectable, nutrient-dense, sustainably grown, and fairly traded cacao on the face of the earth. It all boils down to an even simpler mission: to spread happiness & well-being through chocolate.
