Founded in 2018 by chocolatier Carol Gancia, SF-based Kokak Chocolates is named after the Tagalog word for the sound frogs make. In keeping with this theme, some of their chocolates are shaped like frogs and the lily pads they perch on. Their flavors are mostly Southeast Asian ones like mango and passion fruit, and they use the Ecuadoran single origin chocolate called Naciónal in all their chocolates.

Their Castro district storefront opened in July 2020 and sells their chocolates, coffee, tea, chocolate drinks, baked goods, and more — including champorado, Filipino cacao porridge. You can also buy their chocolates online.

CBTB tip:

Try their Umami Bar for a savory take on sweet white chocolate.
