FAQs

Is Unreal® Vegan?

All Unreal® dark chocolate cups, coconut bars and dark chocolate gems are Certified Vegan by the Vegan Action Group. The ingredients used to make these products are not derived from animal or animal by-products and are not tested on animals. Also, the sugars we have sourced for those products are not processed with bone char. The only exceptions in our product line is our milk chocolate gems and dark chocolate caramel peanut nougat bars – these products contain milk and are therefore not Vegan.

Does this mean your Vegan products are suitable for those with milk allergies?

No. Even though the ingredients we use to make our products are not derived from animals or animal by-products and are not tested on animals, our products are made in a facility that also uses milk chocolate at times. Even though the line is thoroughly cleaned between dark and milk chocolate, we cannot say our vegan products are 100% free from milk proteins.

Is Unreal® gluten-free?

Many of our products are certified gluten-free by GFCO:

  • Dark Chocolate Almond Butter Cups
  • Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
  • Dark Chocolate Crispy Peanut Butter Cups
  • Dark Chocolate Coconut Bars
  • Our gems are made without gluten-containing ingredients but are made in a facility that manufactures products containing gluten. Therefore, we cannot certify our gems are gluten-free.
  • Our dark chocolate caramel peanut nougat bars contain organic spelt flour as an ingredient due to manufacturing constraints and thus contain wheat. These products are not suitable for those with wheat-based sensitivities or allergies. Organic spelt flour is less than <0.5% of the product.

Does Unreal® contain peanuts or tree nuts? If I have a nut allergy can I eat Unreal®?

Please refer to the ingredients decks on each product to see if it contains peanuts or tree nuts.

At this time, we cannot guarantee Unreal® products are completely tree nut and/or peanut free because they are made in facilities that make products containing tree nuts and/or peanuts.

Is Unreal® soy free?

All Unreal® products are free of soy ingredients. However, we cannot guarantee that our products are 100% soy free because they are made in facilities that manufacture products containing soy.

Is Unreal® kosher?

Yes. Unreal® is certified Kosher under the OK Kosher Certification and OU Kosher Certification. To learn more visit: http://www.ok.org or https://oukosher.org

Is Unreal® Non-GMO?

All Unreal dark chocolate products are Non-GMO Project Verified. The issue of genetic modification is important to us. We exclusively source ingredients that are not genetically modified. Visit: https://www.nongmoproject.org to learn more.

While Unreal Milk Chocolate Gems are made of non-GMO ingredients, including rBST-free milk, they are not Non-GMO Project Verified at this time.

Is Unreal® Fair Trade + ethically sourced?

Yes. All our products are made with Fair Trade certified chocolate. The farmers of our cocoa are guaranteed a minimum price for their beans and have safe working conditions and sustainable wages. They are also given Fair Trade premiums to invest in community development such as scholarships, schools, and leadership training. Forced child and slave labor as well as harmful chemicals and GMOs are not permitted on Fair Trade farms. For more information on what Fair Trade means visit: http://fairtradeusa.org/what-is-fair-trade

Is Unreal® organic?

Even though we are not organic certified, many of our ingredients are organic. Please visit the ingredient panel on each product to see what ingredients are organic.

Do you have Inulin in your products?

We use Blue Agave Inulin as a prebiotic fiber in our nut-butter cups and our gems. We do not recommend these products for those who have an inulin sensitivity. For those who are avoiding this ingredient, our Dark Chocolate Coconut Bars and Dark Chocolate Caramel Peanut Nougat Bars are both made without inulin as an ingredient.

Where is Unreal® made?

Unreal® is made in the USA and Canada.

How long is the Unreal® shelf life, and is it safe to eat after the “Get Unreal By” date?

    How should I store Unreal®?

    We recommend storing Unreal® at a temperature below 68 degrees F, below 55% humidity and away from direct sunlight. During summer or in warmer climates if the temperature is above 68 degrees F in your home, we recommend storing them in the refrigerator to prevent melting. When storing in the refrigerator, always make sure to take the product out and let it warm back up to around 68 degrees before eating for the best taste experience!
