Some questions people have asked us…

Is your chocolate allergy free?

Not suitable for nut, lactose or gluten allergy suffers-see below.

None of the ingredients in our chocolate contain nuts/wheat/gluten. However, the place where our Eggs are wrapped does handle nuts and produces items containing wheat/gluten, therefore we cannot guarantee totally nut or gluten free chocolate.

Our chocolate contains natural ingredients. Our milk chocolate contains milk and so is not suitable for those with an allergy to lactose. There is also a trace of naturally occurring soy protein. 

Is the Real Easter Egg suitable for vegetarians?

Yes, our chocolate is made with natural cocoa butter and contains no vegetable fat substitutes.

Where does your you chocolate come from and where do you make them?

Our sugar comes from cooperatives in Paraguay and Beliz. Our cocoa from cooperatives in the Ivory Coast with additional higher quality beans, used to create our unique blend, from cooperatives in the Dominican Republic, Ghana, Peru, Panama and Equateur Province. Our eggs are hand made and wrapped in the UK.

Why is your chocolate not more healthy?

Our aim is to make chocolate that most people can enjoy as a treat and as part of a balanced diet. We use the best natural ingredients in our chocolate. If we replaced natural cocoa butter or sugar with highly processed artificial alternatives then fewer people would enjoy it. So we say enjoy our chocolate but be treat wise.

Why is your chocolate not 100% Fairtrade?

All the cocoa and sugar used to make our chocolate is certified Fairtrade. Some ingredients are not yet available from Fairtrade supplies so no chocolate can be 100% Fairtrade.

Is your chocolate organic?

At present the introduction of organics is seen as a high risk to the livelihood of our farmers. Cocoa, the raw ingredient of chocolate, is very prone to diseases which, if not dealt with quickly, can wipe out the crop. In 1986 disease wiped out vast numbers of cocoa trees in Brazil.

It is worth noting that Fairtrade certification tends to be awarded to smaller farmers and cooperatives which often rely on natural crop protection as pesticides are expensive. There are over 2 million cocoa farmers in Africa.

Does your chocolate contain palm oil?

No. In the UK it is possible to add 5% vegetable fat to chocolate. Unlike some larger manufacturers, we don't add any palm oil or any other oils to our chocolate. It's just natural chocolate.
