We started this company years ago, in the freezing cold of winter. Both Jack and I had returned to college after being on the warm beaches of Brazil for a couple years. Those years were not a vacation and Jack was permanently sick when he got home. While I progressed through my major, Jack was working on getting into law school. Because he was viciously sick all the time he wouldn’t sleep, couldn’t eat, and was just all-around miserable.

Between working full-time and attending school full-time Jack would found himself chugging ice cold energy drinks, in the shower, at 4:00 am before heading out into the snow to get to work. This was in no way sustainable, but energy drinks were his only option as he couldn’t drink coffee. In fact I often got phone calls from Jack to drive him home after a long day of school or work, because he was too tired to make it back.

Finally, after putting up with this for years we decided to do it. We did what lots of people wonder about, but no one tries, a hot chocolate with caffeine. Something to make drinking hot chocolate worth the effort. We perfected a recipe, found a producer, and created Rogue Cocoa, our first caffeinated hot chocolate. We decided to make it low in sugar, but high in flavor. To be honest, sucralose is the only sweetener we could afford to make it with. We knew lots of people wouldn’t like the taste but we trusted that enough people drink diet coke that we’d have a market.

We had some set-backs. The producer actually messed up the first entire batch of Rogue Cocoa and made it with coconut milk, a flavor we did not anticipate ordering. But we tried it, loved it, and took a large portion of the batch home anyway, creating our Coconut Rogue Cocoa! Our final Original Rogue Cocoa batch came a few weeks later. We know the scoops are a little small and that your fingers get dirty when you reach into the bag, but that’s part of the fun! (Plus there’s not much we can do about it now 🙂

Each bag is hand-labeled, hand packed, and shipped to your door. We run this small business on a tiny budget and in between working full-time jobs/law school, but we try to keep everyone happy.

We don’t have much experience and we don’t have a large budget, but we have a lot of passion and excitement for our product. We personally love it and hope you do too. We launched the product in September 2017 and launched our subscription service in September 2018. While our Instagram isn’t blogger worthy and our posts aren’t always exciting we’re enjoying the journey. We’ve had almost 100% positive reviews for Rogue Cocoa which has been amazing! Only a handful of few people have been sad about not liking the taste of artificial sweetener and we get it. But overall people have loved Rogue Cocoa and continue to order, even over the hot summer! We’re extremely grateful to all our customers and fans and hope to continue the business into the future.

Thank you for keeping us open for over a year. This is an adventure for us, and it’s one that we love.
