Honest food doesn't have ingredients, it is ingredients. Good and truthful that is what we want our chocolate to be. So when we say our chocolate is raspberry and ginger then that is exactly what you're eating, with chocolate and water, and a little bit (lots!) of love. We hand craft our chocolates in small batches using only natural ingredients, and strive to create flavours that are true to their origin. We don't believe in using hidden enhancers, preservatives or additives. We believe in respecting your body and this starts with what you eat. But this also means giving yourself treats every now and again. Go on, you deserve it!

Our chocolates don't contain dairy and only have a limited amount of sugar. Not because it's trendy, but because we believe it goes hand in hand with producing the best tasting chocolates and it doesn't leave you feeling sick after a moment of indulgence. We always try to keep in mind the origin of the chocolate and its flavour profile, and look for ways to showcase this.

  • Love Love Love this Teeny Weeny shop. I went in to get cocoa powder. They didnt have any, however recommended a cocoa drinking chocolate powder which can be used in the same way. Cant wait to try it in baking. Such lovely ladies too. I will definitely be back for a longer browse. So glad I found this gem after it being recommended to me.
  • Great hands on experience to select your own deluxe chocolates
  • This was the stop after lunch to get a chocolate fix. The shop is located beside the large staircase leading to the road from the Market area. It is quite small but does have a see through wall to the kitchen where you can watch them make the treats. The small shop has a fair selection of different chocolates in a myriad of different forms. I tried their hot chocolate. The marshmallow that came with it was good. I had a choice of chocolate or blueberry and I went with chocolate. The hot chocolate itself was quite dark. It had quite a strong flavour that was almost too bitter. It did mellow out when it cooled down a bit. It was a nice stop to look at interesting and tasty chocolates.
  • I didn't get to see them making the products, but the area looked very hygienic! Great explanations on how it is made, and dairy free caramels! Wow!
  • Very helpful staff , great displays , really good range and watch it being crafted as well.
