Yummy Dummy Chocolate Company was started by seven young local girls (Sedona, Stream, Rachel, Rowan, Bay, Risa and Sara). They specialized in all-natural dark chocolate. They sold their chocolate at the Farmers' Market from time to time, and it is also available on their website. And at Ikedas
Their company began as a Christmas project, making bars as gifts, and the (as of 2010) 11 to 16 year olds now find themselves with a healthy internet and local business. They donated 100% of their profit to children and environmental charities.
The company closed down in December 2011 with three of the seven girls heading off to college the following fall. This Davis Enterprise article has details.

They are not a girl scout troupe, but rather a bunch of budding entrepreneur's (I know several of them). —rocksanddirt
I think her comment was more a joke, but still yeah, we should make sure not to belittle these awesome girls, people need to take them seriously I think. ~Dave

- It was delicious, pretty dark, nice and bitter sweet, they demonstrated the stuff they use to make it, and explained the process; it was both a treat for the taste and thoughts. ~Dave

2008-02-09 12:36:48 indeed, especially at $2/bar this is fairly quality chocolate for the price (good sweetness and smoothness), i definitely enjoyed it (and their dark bars are vegan yay!) plus the charity thing is cool. —MiranPark
