Questions about our Superfood Chocolate Bars
What is a superfood chocolate bar?
A Superfood Baris your favourite chocolate format to eat everyday, anytime. Our bars are cocoa-intense and blended with ingredients honouring the mightiest mountains on each of the 7 continents. A truly well-deserved, indulgent treat.
Are 7SS superfood chocolate bars gluten-free?
Our chocolates are made without gluten-containing ingredients after a rigorous clean of the equipment. The facility they are produced in does handle gluten-containing ingredients.
Doesn't chocolate melt?
You bet! Chocolate melts at temperatures above 25C. We've made our chocolate easy to eat when it melts by having a tear top so you can keep your hands clean.
If you want to keep it more solid in hot temperatures, put our bars near your hydration pack or in your bike bento so they stay solid for longer.
We love them when they do melt! We dare you to try it out.
Do any 7SS superfood chocolate contain nuts?
Currently, our DARK chocolates are made without nuts after a rigorous clean of the equipment. The facility they are produced in does handle nuts.
Our Milk Chocolate Denali bar does contain peanut butter.
What allergens are in your superfood chocolate bars?

Milk and peanuts are in our Denali bar
Our bars are gluten free, although there are gluten containing ingredients in the factory that makes our bars. A full allergen clean is performed before our bars are produced.
Are your superfood chocolate bars vegan or vegetarian?
Our Dark Chocolate Superfood bars (Everest and Aconcagua) are vegan.
Our Dark Chocolate Endurance bars (Everest and Aconcagua) contain honey from happy Alberta bees.
Our Denali bars contain milk, making them vegetarian.
What makes your chocolate special?
Years of consumer insight of the global chocolate industry has gone into sourcing chocolate that is rich in cocoa and low in bitterness.
We ensure we are souring ethically produced chocolate, meaning that we purchase chocolate that has social programs supporting the farmers and communities who grow the crops.
What is an Endurance Bar?
We tested these bars with hundreds of athletes, and they all said that they work! The Endurance Bars kept them going for those longer endurance days AND with no bad tummy effects.
It's An Energy Bar
An Endurance Bar is our version of an energy bar. Crafted with 15g of carbohydrates (in the form of sugar and honey) in a 30g stick of chocolate fuel.
Replace Your Carb Gel
The carbohydrates mixed with our natural fats (cocoa butter and coconut butter), allows for a slower energy release comparatively to a carb-gel or pure syrup.
This means you still get the energy you need in that hour of exercise, but spread over time rather than a spike and crash.
Using chocolate as exercise fuel
Can I eat chocolate when I exercise?
Of course you can! You can eat chocolate whenever you like.
We have created a line of purposeful chocolate so you know it's doing you some good. Our Endurance Bars are meant to fuel you for your longer endurance activities. Be-it hoofing in the hills, skiing down the slopes, or cycling through the river valley, you can beat the bonk with our tasty chocolate fuel.
And hey - everything in moderation... or according to Maya Angelou's Mom - "even moderation in moderation"
Where is your nutrition information?
When you look at each product in our shop, there is a picture of the nutrition facts table for you to review.
What do you mean by sustainable chocolate?
Chocolate can get a bad reputation based on unethical production methods (unfair treatment of small-holding farmers, child labour, etc).
We ensure that we purchase our chocolate from reputable sustainability programs which gives back to the communities that grow cocoa. Specifically, we purchase chocolate made under the Cocoa Horizons program. You can check our more about the program here.
