2. Land Chocolate - Toasted White

As close as you can get to a single origin white chocolate. Their Nicaraguan cocoa butter retains a lovely natural chocolate aroma & a hint of acidity, perfectly complementing the milk powder which has been heavily toasted to bring out a biscuity aroma. They finish this bar with a sprinkling of Nicaraguan cocoa nibs, adding a lovely crunch & an intense fruity/acidic note to this unique tasting white chocolate.

3. Pumpstreet Bakery - Brown Bread 40%

Their newest foray into bakery bars; a chunky, malty amalgamation of bread pieces & sweet toffee-ish white chocolate made with their very own cocoa press and Samuel von Rutte's Ecuadorian cocoa beans from Hacienda Limon.

4. Chocolader - Wild Gorse Flower 50% Milk

Picked by hand in late spring from the prickly hedgerows that line the rugged Cornish coastal path, these small yellow flowers are a right pain in the fingers to harvest!


However, once steeped in cocoa butter pressed from their own beans, the flowers impart their heady warm coconut scent to our milk chocolate for a unique flavour that makes it all worthwhile.

5. Tosier - 90% Maya Mountain Belize

Delicate notes of pineapple, pepper and rainforest fruits.


Their chocolate is made using the highest quality cocoa, sustainably-sourced from the world’s top 5%, so our farmers get their fair share.


All of their bars are made with 70% cocoa to enable you to compare and appreciate the delicate and distinctive flavours of the beans and their varieties.


Handcrafting our chocolate in 24 kilo microbatches, we only make a limited number of bars from each harvest.

Like wine, each harvest is unique & the delicious flavours of each variety are enhanced by individual roasting profiles. Tosier Chocolate uses only three ingredients - 70% single origin cocoa beans, unrefined organic cane sugar & cocoa butter.
