ENGINEER + ANALYST + LOVE FOR CHOCOLATE = 9TH & LARKIN CRAFT CHOCOLATE PERFECTION

May 24, 2020

It’s no secret that we are professional snack makers and equally professional snack eaters and chocolate definitely tops our fave snack list. During our January business trip to San Francisco, we found ourselves looking for #beantobar and #craftchocolate on Instagram while waiting to check into our Soma hotel. We soon discovered the diversity of the chocolate-making scene in the west coast and noticed the concentration of chocolate-making companies in California.

Then we stumbled upon 9TH & LARKIN‚Äôs¬†Instagram account¬†and quickly fell in love with the brand‚Äôs sense of aesthetics. We immediately put this SF based bean-to-bar chocolate maker on our¬†‚Äúto-try‚Ä̬†list and had our first taste a couple of days later and oh boy, was it¬†GOOD. We loved this chocolate so much that we partnered with 9TH & LARKIN on a giveaway and invited Lan to tell us more about .¬†

Because we wanted to hear more about Lan’s chocolate story and the wonderful world of craft chocolate making, we asked her to answer all of our burning questions for May edition of Smartbite Collective. We think you’ll really enjoy e-meeting Lan.

IF YOU EVER WONDERED WHO IS BEHIND OUR DESIGNS, HER NAME IS KAYLA AND SHE IS AWESOME

February 28, 2020

Little story time: When we were looking for a graphic designer to join our tiny but mighty team last year, Kayla’s application was the very last one that made it into our inbox. After going through all 319 resumes and after picking a couple of hot candidates, we decided to click on Kayla’s email at last and we are so glad we did. 

Who is Kayla? The short answer: a Vancouver based graphic designer who is behind the majority of Smartbite Snacks promo designs and who is about to start working on our US product packaging. 

To give you the long answer, we caught up with Kayla one rainy Saturday morning at our favourite local cafe DALINA to talk about her creative process, drawing inspiration from her life, and her advice to aspiring creatives in an ever-changing digital world.

When you add more women to any equation, there is always a return on equality.
At Smartbite Snacks we believe that a woman alone has power while collectively women have impact. Raising each other up and channeling the power of collaboration is truly how we’ll change the equation.

WIL serves undergraduate and graduate students at the Schulich School of Business and focuses on enhancing the understanding and appreciation of women's role in business, while assisting members in reaching success in their chosen field.
