Fungible Chocolates has been selected as one of the 5 finalists to present at St.Pete Pitch Night May 17th, 2022 from 5:30pm until 7:00pm at 3 Daughter’s Brewing in St.Petersburg, FL. The presentation schedule has not yet been finalized but they will have 6 minutes to present and 6 minutes to answer questions from the judges.
Fungible Chocolates is a St.Pete based healthy chocolate company that specializes in mushroom chocolate bars. The chocolates are made with adaptogenic mushrooms that help the body and mind better adapt to life's ups and downs. The first chocolate bar in their line of Fungible Chocolates features Lion’s Mane mushrooms and is made with 3 simple ingredients; cacao, coconut sugar, and 2000mg of lion’s mane mushroom extract. Fungible Chocolate bars are vegan, low glycemic, gluten-free, paleo, and are 85% dark chocolate.
However, Fungible Chocolates is more than mushroom chocolate, it’s a philosophy. They encourage people to embody the adaptable and resourceful nature of mushrooms to increase their quality of life. Being Fungible (“Be Fungible” is their tagline) is a mindset and a way of approaching the world with open hands, an open heart, and an open mind that’s ready to receive and make the best of what comes our way.
Since launching in March 2022 after 6 months of planning and R&D, they have successfully built relationships with 11 local retailers (pictured below) and have sold out online. This level of enthusiasm and community acceptance showed Fungible Chocolates that healthy mushroom chocolate is surprisingly a product that people really want and are excited about.

We can’t wait to share the healing power of adaptogenic mushrooms, and our vision of how mushrooms will shape our futures in terms of mental, physical, and environmental health.”
