’57 Chocolate

Our list of favorite women-owned chocolate brands could not possibly be complete without one from actual sisters!  Ghana-based ‘57 Chocolate was co-founded by sisters Kimberly and Priscilla Addison, who realized that though Ghana grew the main ingredient in chocolate (cocoa), it produced very little chocolate itself.  The name is short for 1957, the year Ghana gained its independence.  We also love the use of Adrinkra symbols as shapes for the chocolate.  Adinkra symbols represent admirable traits, concepts, or thoughts like (below, left to right) Harmony, God’s Blessing, Femininity, Wisdom, and Knowledge, or even one fitting of sisters working together, like Two Heads Are Better Than One.
