Coco Chocolate has three stores that are all in Sydney and as well as running their chocolate school, you can buy a wonderful range of chocolates from all three of their stores.
I’m fortunate to live within walking distance of one of their stores and when Alfie has swimming lessons he walks from school to the swim centre and passes by Coco Chocolate where he wanders in pretending to be a customer and helps himself to one of the complimentary chocolates on offer. I can smell it on his breath when I meet him at the pool!
To make up for my son’s ‘buying habits’ I call in frequently and buy hostess gifts to take to dinner parties and these gifts are highly treasured.
Recently, Rebecca Kerswell, chocolatier and the owner of Coco Chocolate, contacted me to let me know they have just launched a new product range. It was birthed out of her customers frequently asking for a chocolate range that has no added sweetener, including agave.
Rebecca produced a range that not only has no added sugar but is also gluten-free, vegan and 75% organic. With a cocoa mass of 90% chocolate, this range is incredibly dark, bitter and rich. Rebecca has created 10 different varieties including drinking chocolate and I have been fortunate enough to have been given five of the varieties to sample.
As I have come to expect, this new range is beautifully packaged. Each packet has a minimum weight of 70gms and retails for $10.50. The packets open like an envelope and Carl said it reminded him of opening a roll-your-own tobacco packet although clearly, the contents are much better for you!
In terms of varieties, I have sampled raspberry, hazelnut & sea salt, fig & date, orange, and aztec which is a blend of chilli, cinnamon and vanilla. I absolutely love dark chocolate and I love the quality of chocolate that is made by Coco Chocolate. I believe this beautifully packaged vegan range will be extremely popular as customers buy it for themselves and purchase extra packets for gifts.
In celebration of the launch of this range, Coco Chocolate is very generously giving away 50 packets of this chocolate that will be divided between five lucky winners so each winner will received 10 packets of chocolate valued at over $50.00. And with Easter just around the corner, what excellent timing this is!
All you have to do to enter the competition is like Hotly Spiced on Facebook and be following along on either Instagram or Twitter. And please let me know in the comments which variety of the bars sounds like your favourite. Now there’s a catch! The competition is open to everyone however, due to how difficult it is to post chocolate, you do have to be able to collect your prize from one of their three stores!
The competition ends at midnight on April 6 and winners will have three months to collect their prize.
