Mikki Chewz actually started as a 5th-grade science project! I had the choice to either do a research project or invent something. As the candy-loving kid I am, I thought, “what better thing to invent than candy?” Mikki Chewz was a HIT since the science fair!
For candy lovers who care about health for all, Mikki Chewz is sustainable, chewy, hand crafted chocolate used to raise awareness and support mental health; especially for people of color!
We work with small direct trade chocolate suppliers with rich delicious sustainable chocolate, which ensures natural resources are being used as well as maintaining suitable farmer conditions. Chocolate has many perks for the mind, body, and spirit. However, our focus is on the many benefits chocolate has on the mind such as: lower effects of depression and anxiety. Mental health is just as important as physical health. We want to promote that by giving a portion of our profits towards mental health programs like NAMI (National Alliance of Mental Illness). This mission will help us to bring that child-like joy back to all ages and all walks of life.
Our goal is to bring joy from inside and out!
We work with small direct trade chocolate suppliers with the rich delicious sustainable chocolate, which is then rolled in homemade butter cookies and toasted coconut made by hand with love, the most valuable ingredient quality.
Bringing child-like joy one chew at a time!
We seek to bring the “inner-child” out of adults. Moreover, we want to ensure that the “child-like joy” inside of the children, stay present with the help of our delicious and chocolaty Mikki Chewz!
With my parents’ encouragement, I continued developing Mikki Chewz after the fair. Fast forward to 2017, I brought Mikki Chewz to Kendall College’s Incubator program. With the help, mentorship, and support of my teachers at Kendall, Mikki Chewz has been rising to new levels!
