You Know Mars, meet The Cocoa Exchange

Our passion for cocoa began over 100 years ago in the Mars family kitchen in Tacoma, Washington, where Frank and Ethel Mars started a business selling their chocolate. Today, that family business has grown into Mars Wrigley Confectionery, producers of America's favorite chocolate brands (M&M’s®, Snickers®, DOVE® and more) and the world's largest chocolate company.

Mars realized that some new products are so innovative and on-trend that they need to be demonstrated and experienced rather than just sit on store shelves. So, they launched The Cocoa Exchange in March 2017 as a boutique brand and innovation partner with independent Curators who bring the gourmet store directly to your door.
