Heather Rawlings-Davis never expected her path would lead her to a career in the chocolate industry. She started out as an educator, and then began writing children’s books to encourage literacy and strength in the community, like “Duck Gets A New Hat, El Pato Consigue Un Nuevo Sombrero,” and “Polli Wogs.” The latter book is realistic fiction, and follows the story of a girl through her adventures in life and with other people. Eventually, that led to Ms. Rawlings-Davis’ own real-life adventure, including culinary classes, research, and the creation of PolliWogs.Co., a producer and manufacturer of three gourmet chocolate and caramel sauces. The cocoa used is grown with sustainable farming practices and techniques, and the containers and packaging used is eco-friendly. With the support of the large chocolate community, PolliWogs.Co. currently has offices in 3,000 locations, and their products are available worldwide in grocery stores, specialty retail, and with food distributors.
As a testament to her success, Ms. Rawlings-Davis was featured on the cover of the magazine Women of Distinction in February 2016. She and her business were also invited to the Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs, Colorado for a chocolate festival. Ms. Rawlings-Davis is currently a member of the National Federation of Independent Businesses and The International Women’s Leadership Association. Last year, PolliWogs.Co. donated chocolate to local food pantries, and contributed to Casa de Los Ninos.
