Ingredients & Green Mission

Our Green Mission

At Ticket Chocolate we believe in responsibility. We are committed to finding sustainable solutions for every step in our process, from our packaging to our choice of chocolate.

We choose only chocolate suppliers who are as committed to the future as we are. Our suppliers support training programs for native cacao farmers and purchase cacao only from farmers who use sustainable growing methods and who offer positive working conditions.

Whenever possible, we use recycled, biodegradable, and byproduct material to package our chocolate, and we are always looking for ways to minimize packaging materials.

Our production facility uses energy saving devices wherever possible, from compact florescent lighting to equipment that is Energy Star certified.

We are always looking for new steps we can take towards a more sustainable future. We know that when we are all committed, our little choices add up to make a big impact.

Ingredient FAQ

Welcome to the Ingredient FAQ! Here we try to answer any questions you may have about our chocolate. If you don’t see the answer to your question below, just send us an email at [email protected] and we’ll be happy to answer your question.

Q: I do not consume high fructose corn syrup or partially hydrogenated oils. Can I enjoy your chocolate?
A: Yes! Our products do not contain any high fructose corn syrup or partially hydrogenated oil. We pride ourselves on using the finest ingredients. Each hot chocolate Ticket Stick contains the finest couverture chocolate and all-natural flavorings.

Q: Is your hot chocolate gluten free?
A: We have thoroughly reviewed all of our hot chocolate ingredients, and nothing that goes into our hot chocolate Ticket Sticks should have anything that would conflict with a gluten-free diet. We are not certified gluten free at this point, however, and Ticket Chocolate holds no responsibility for any claims that we are certified gluten free.

Q: Are your products dairy free?
A: Our milk chocolate, of course, is not dairy free. As for our dark chocolate and bittersweet chocolate, while those chocolates do not include dairy as an ingredient, our chocolate is created in a facility that processes items with milk solids, so Ticket Chocolate cannot guarantee that our product has no traces of dairy, though the dark chocolate does not contain it as an ingredient.

Q: Do you have any vegan hot chocolate?
A: Our dark and bittersweet chocolate contain no dairy and no animal byproducts. We hope you’ll take a moment to enjoy our French Dark Truffle, our Three Chili, our Gingerbread, or our Venezuelan and Bolivian Bittersweet hot chocolate.

Q: Can I consume your product if I have a soy allergy?
A: No. If you have a soy allergy, you should not consume our product. Almost all chocolate, ours included, uses soy lecithin as an emulsifier. Because chocolate is an emulsion (a mixture of substances that would otherwise separate) it needs an emulsifier to keep it together. Almost all chocolates rely on soy lecithin to do the job, as does ours.

Q: Are your products completely peanut & tree nut free, or is there a possibility of cross contamination in the manufacturing?
A: While we cannot guarantee that our items are not cross contaminated by peanut or tree nuts, we can tell you that during the making of our chocolates, no nut products are used and no other nut products are being made. Ticket Chocolate, however, holds no responsibility for any guarantees that our items are not cross contaminated by peanut or tree nuts.

Q: I would like to purchase your chocolate now and use it for gifts in a month or two. How do you recommend I store it?
A: Because we make our Ticket Sticks and Beloved Bars from fine couverture chocolate and make fresh batches often, our chocolate will last for months stored at room temperature in a dry place. A cooler spot like a cupboard or pantry is perfect. As long as you do not put the chocolate in direct sun or any other warm spot, it will keep beautifully. We also don’t recommend storing chocolate in the fridge, as it has a natural tenancy to soak up odors around it.
