The Sjaak's Story began on the Southern beaches of Spain. This is where Jacques and Pam met and fell in love. They soon came back and settled in Eureka, California, where Pam had grown up. They began a chocolate business that grew into a household name in their community/ After years of building a thriving business, they realized that they needed to shift their attention to organic products. Being long-time vegetarians (since 1970) and health conscious consumers themselves, they felt they needed their personal beliefs reflected in their business, this the beginning of Sjaak's Organic chocolates.

Sjaak's Organic Chocolates creates a large variety of vegan products, including chocolate bars, gift boxes and Holiday treats. This means they contain no animal ingredients, such as milk, butter, eggs and gelatin. The sugar used is non bone char.

Sjaak's Organic Chocolates is a lacto-vegetarian operation. This means they have no eggs or gelatin in their factory. They take these vegan products very seriously, and clean equipment thoroughly between batches, but take caution - trace amounts of dairy are possible. Sjaak's does use various nuts in their products, so if you have a severe allergy, please use caution. Sjaak's is a gluten-free facility, and uses organic soy in all of their products.

The Sjaak's logo is rooted deep in family history. Jacques, the owner and creator of Sjaak's Organic Chocolate, was born in the Netherlands, and grew up next door to the family grain mill. The original wind mill that is that is represented in the Sjaak's logo was named Antonius Mollen, a family name to this day. This mill was destroyed in World War II, but it was replaced by a mechanical mill. The tulip in the forefront is iconic of Holland, the largest producers of tulips in the world.

    Theses puppies are ORGANIC, DAIRY-FREE (Vegan) and GLUTEN FREE. For those of us who need that type of product they are the best out there. Many natural/organic/vegan bars are horrendous but these are amazing. Great texture and taste. Do try them.
