Burning Man was such a blast! Best burn I’ve been to in 5 years. Special thanks to camp Nexus for housing us and camp Foamo Arregato for sponsoring Fearless Chocolate at their wednesday dinner!
As best I can tell, this is me spreading the FEARLESS at Burning Man’s Metropolis, lol.
Dear Fearless Family,
The entire office is at Burning Man for the next week and thus will be out of contact until 9/5. Wish us fun!
In the mean time, if you need anything, please write to Haridass

S.F.-based startup Fearless makes its raw-cacao chocolate “adventurously with auspicious providence and lavish devotion,” according to the attractive recycled packaging. Bars are made with unroasted organic cacao beans cooked on low heat (under 118 degrees) and are free of soy, dairy, and gluten. A molded “bite” is taken out of the corner of each bar to represent the company’s donation of a small portion of the proceeds to charity.
Fearless stands out by avoiding the mealy texture some of its local raw competitors have. This is a bar you can snack on and not feel deprived of the roasted bean flavor. There are five bars in all. We’ve gravitated to the 70-percent dark Sweet N Hot, which balances the sharp tang of hibiscus with a buzzy ginger burn.
Thanks for the kind words Tamara! You clearly have great taste

Fearless Chocolate lover and flickr flickster DocPop kindly explains why there’s a bite taken out of your Fearless Chocolate bar…
The missing bite represents the 1% of it’s annual profits that goes to non-profits.
That’s exactly right! We donate 1% of our annual profits to changemakering organizations suggested by our customers. If you know an individual or organization that is truly pushing the boundaries of creativity to serve others PLEASE let us know!
All you need to do is purchase a Fearless Chocolate bar in your local natural foods store or online, submit the product code printed on the exterior box, and tell us about the do-gooder you’d like Fearless to support. Make your suggestions known to EatMe@FearlessChocolate.com
Some of you may know that we’ve been playing with our twitter account (@beingfearless) hosting a secret give-away called #MagicMonday. We keep it simple, every week we pick a word or a phrase in the office, search for it on twitter, and whoever has mentioned this phrase gets to be an unsuspecting winner of free Fearless Chocolate. Pretty good deal right?
The latest greatest info graphic from Good.is
This graphic, from Visual Economics, breaks down the elements of our diet in pounds. The quantity of fruits and vegetables we eat is actually a little higher than I’d expect, though we still consume more sweets and sodium than we should. The chart also doesn’t expose the extent to which corn goes into other foods.
Eater.com has a nice interview with Wu-Tang’s GZA (Pictured above left with RZA and sometimes Wu-Tanger Bill Murray) and his penchant for raw food. Wonder if he might want to try a Raw Organic Chocolate bar…Can anyone put us in touch?
