According to the Dale brothers: "The story began on a bus in Ecuador. Our Dad was backpacking and met our Mom, a local. Sparks flew. On their honeymoon, the newlyweds packed up a green VW and moved to Athens, GA. As kids we treasured our summers in Ecuador with family. We loved the beach, the food, and not surprisingly, the chocolate. Condor Chocolates is our homage to the birthplace of our Mother. A testament to the sense of adventure that brought our Dad to her and a celebration of Ecuador - home of the finest cacao in the world."
