About Amore di Mona
In 2006, Amore di Mona’s founders began making chocolate for their special diet dessert cakes, cookies and muffins. At the time, no luxury soy/peanut/tree nut/gluten/milk-free options were available in the market to purchase. In response, they created a chocolate using only raw and organic, Fair Trade agave nectar, Belgian cocoa solids, Dutch and Belgian cocoa butters. Soon thereafter, customers began asking to buy just the chocolate. At their request, Amore di Mona began developing the luxurious European style chocolate selections that are offered today.
