How to Use The Chocolate Swap Group.

Add a forum post about the chocolate(s) you have to swap and the chocolates you are looking for.

To make it easy on everyone, please list in detail what you have and what you are looking for. Please also tell us more or less where you are. City, State, County is enough, nothing more specific than that. Please do not reply to the forum with your real-world e-mail address, phone numbers, chatroom names, or other personally identifiable information.

If you find someone you want to swap chocolate with, send them a message by clicking on Send Message next to their name/avatar next to their post. No link? You may have to friend them first. Send a friend request and tell them the reason you want to friend them is to swap chocolate.

Disclaimer: This is a referral service only. In no way does TheChocolateLife assume any responsibility for the accuracy of the descriptions provided or guarantee the delivery of the chocolate(s) being swapped. Those issues are entirely up to the parties involved. If group members have a problem they can contact Clay Gordon who will attempt to mediate a resolution. The fee for the mediation service is one bar of chocolate - Clay's choice.

I'd like to send a some Chocolate Seeds in exchange for anything chocolate from anywhere. I guess let's start by sending me your shipping address. You can reuse my box and send something back.

I live about half an hour away from Naked Chocolate Cafe in Philadelphia, PA, which has some pretty good stuff. I'd like to try this swap thing, if anyone else is interested in that.

I like milk and dark chocolate, the smoother, the better. I'm interested in trying something new. No raspberry, please.

Send me a message, if you'd like!

Is there someone world wide :), who could get a bar of Davao 77 for me? Or any other bar of Philippines origin? I could offer something Lithuanian or Kalev (Estonia), or Laima (Latvia), or Karl Fazer (Finland) or Vivani (Germany, bio) or Lindt or Cote d'Or... Just contact me!

cheebs, your chocolates sound incredible! I would love to trade with you!

I live a couple of streets away from the Ethel M Chocolate Factory. It's not artisan, but it is really really fresh-- they let people watch the workers making the chocolates and give samples right off the line --, so I could trade any of their things. They make mostly bonbons.

Hello everybody. I want to offer up my Danta Chocolate bars to trade gram-for-gram for other premium bars.

Currently I have in stock or ready to mold the following 50 or 115 gram bars: 39%cacao Milk, 43%cacao Milk, 60%, 70% cacao and sugar only, 75%, white and white with nibs.

I work with 2 different cacao growers in Guatemala. One, Las Acacias Estate, is as close as you can get to a pure Criollo in Guatemala. It's fruity and spicy and bold. The second, Los Ujuxtes Estate (pronounced "los oo-hoosh-tays") is a Trinitario originally brought to Guatemala from Costa Rica in 1979, prior to the blight that wiped out 95% of their cacao production. This cacao is of a more "chocolatey" nature, but still has a hint of fruitiness and possibly some tobacco.
My white chocolate is made with natural, undeodorized cocoa butter that I have made from the same premium cacao used for my chocolates. I have been told, repeatedly, by professionals in the field and "regular" folks alike that it's the best white chocolate they have ever had.

Now, with all that said, I can't start a swap program until the summer is over. All air mail in and out of Guatemala passes through Miami, and even though I ship in a cooler with frozen gelpacks, they last no more than 3 days in the summertime. The total transit time from Guatemala to the US or Canada is usually around 10 days. Unfortunately, there are no inexpensive options for faster shipping. DHL, UPS, Fedex all operate here but are frightfully expensive. But, I'd still like to get started on making the necessary contacts. So, feel free to post here or contact me privately. Cheers!

No I haven't tried Original beans, haven't heard of them before, they were quite expensive, but as long as they are covered in the "budget" I'd like to try :) Thanks for the tips!
