"I just love chocolate, always have. It reminds me of special childhood treats, a little square of chocolate placed quietly in my hand by my gentle dad whom I adored. It filled me with warmth, love, and happiness.
When I went vegan in 2015 with the rest of my family, I really wanted to find a delicious chocolate that would still fill me with joy. But I couldn't find any that I loved (and believe me, I tried them all!).
So I just Googled 'how to make chocolate', and my rollercoaster chocolate journey was born. My aim was to produce a thoroughly delicious chocolate that looks beautiful, tastes amazing, and represents the highest standards of ethics and sustainability."
So what's the chocolate like?!
Chocolatey Clare confectionery is truly unique as it is made to my own special recipe! It has a rich depth of flavour and a distinctive taste profile. I spent three years perfecting my chocolate recipe, and I ultimately produced a luscious result that made me smile -- not too bitter but teetering on the edge of darkness with gorgeous undertones and a deliciously lingering aftertaste.
There are only four ingredients in the chocolate, and I spent a very long time searching for the highest quality coupled with optimum ethical standards. I only deal with suppliers involved in a variety of humanitarian, charitable, and environmental projects that benefit local farmers and communities. You can read more about it in my Sustainability Charter!
The chocolate is handcrafted in Ireland in small batches. The organic raw cacao nibs and cacao butter are from the finest Peruvian Criollo beans.
Only 3% of the world's chocolate is made with these beans!
Chocolatey Clare packaging is beautifully elegant and plastic-free. The inner wrappers are made from a home compostable plant-based film. The outer boxes are made from FSC-certified board that is printed with vegetable-based ink using wind-powered printing machines!
