Lou Whistle Chocolate Pecan Bar
Molasses and pecans come together in a luxe chocolate wrapper and deliver flavors of buttery pecan pie in a soft and satisfying chew, without any dairy at all. There are two little two-bite bars in this adorable box for rich a treat now, and another one later, or for sharing with a friend.
Ingredients (vegan and gluten free): organic cane sugar, organic rice syrup, organic coconut oil, pecans, organic molasses, salt, vanilla, organic chocolate (made on equipment that processes peanuts and tree nuts)
Anne Smith owned and operated a popular cooking school in Los Angeles. In what was perhaps their most popular class, their students gathered several times a year to make candy. In 2011, after falling in love with a Portlander, she sold her business and moved to the Pacific Northwest.
It’s serendipity that brought a food-focused entrepreneur, still consumed by candy making, to a city that embraces culinary artisans. With only a basic understanding of tempering chocolate and cooking with sugar, she had an idea to make a chocolate bark with toffee running through it. It was great, and then she went nuts. Or rather, in 2015 she decided that as an environmentalist, she wanted to try to make something just as special without using animal products.
They’ve now added new flavors and textures to our confection line, and of our candies are vegan, gluten free and made with as many organic ingredients as possible.
