CHOCOLATE & LOVE* | Dark Chocolate Obsession

I've been on a mission to seriously cut back on my sugar consumption but as a chocolate addict this has been so very hard. I've stuck to dark chocolate, the higher the percentage of cocoa, the better. We were sent an assortment of Chocolate and Love* bars to try out and I think it is safe to say, I'm obsessed. Chocolate and Love is a family owned organic and ethically made chocolate company that produces seven sumptuous flavours; Mint, Orange, Sea Salt, Filthy Rich, Panama, Coffee and Dark Milk.

Adapting to dark chocolate when I was used to eating poor quality "chocolate" that was mainly comprised of nasties like palm oil has been quite an adjustment but I am more than comfortable treating myself to a few squares of 85%- 100% chocolate these days. Reducing my sugar intake has given me a new appreciation for luxury quality chocolate that actually has a real, true chocolate flavour.

Starting with the packaging, Chocolate and Love won me over. The quirky, eye catching designs are gorgeous and really add to the luxurious feel of the bars. I almost felt bad when it came to recycling the wrappers because they are just so artistic. Inside every wrapper is the story of Chocolate and Love , from the origins of the fairly traded cocoa, to top tips for getting the most enjoyment out of your bar. 

As I get older I am becoming much more conscious of the sources of the food I eat. It is really is important to me that ingredients are ethically sourced and if a product is organic, it is much more appealing. The outer packaging of Chocolate and Love bars is recyclable paper and the 'foil' is biodegradable which means minimum impact on the environment - it's so nice to be able to experience great chocolate totally guilt-free.

The taste is utterly divine, my favourite bar by far was the 55% salted caramel bar, which delicious pieces of crunchy caramel. If you are looking to try something new, and are a fan of dark chocolate, I can highly recommend a Chocolate and Love bar to satisfy your chocolate cravings. You can find out more on the  easy-to-navigate Chocolate & Love website.
