Gift Ideas: Love Cocoa Luxury Chocolate

I'm one of those people who isn't really a lover of cake, biscuits, cookies or chocolate *I can hear the gasps, I know* and I don't know why! Sure, I like sweets and desserts every once in a while but I never really crave things like cake, biscuits or chocolate and I think one of the reasons is because I've never found any that I really like. There's maybe only one brand of chocolate that I actually like and even that is rare but when I see chocolate that is packaged as uniquely as this and that sounds as delicious then I have to try it and sadly for my scales, I love it!

I was very kindly sent a selection of chocolate from Love Cocoa which focuses on award winning luxury chocolate bars and gifts that are handmade in the UK, made using only organic, fair-trade ingredients and with the ethics of the original Cadbury company - the founder of Love Cocoa, James Cadbury, is a descendant of the founder of Cadburys so it seems that delicious chocolate making is in the genes.
*Love Cocoa Dark Chocolate with Maldon Sea Salt (£4) - ★★★★☆
Firstly, let's mention the gorgeous packaging! It's so minimal but so eye catching and I think aesthetically it would make a fantastic gift. The 70% cacao dark chocolate derived from Ecuador is combined with handpicked crushed sea salt from the UK. Sea salt and chocolate isn't an original or shocking combination as it once was but it's become a classic, especially as a gift and this one is definitely the best I've tasted! I love the rich, smooth dark chocolate and the savoury saltiness.

*Love Cocoa Honeycomb Milk Chocolate (£3 - SALE) - ★★★★★
If I'm going to reach for any chocolate then it will definitely be milk chocolate, I love how creamy it is but nothing compares to how intensely creamy, milky and utterly delicious this decadent bar is! I adore the honeycomb as it adds sweetness and a slightly difference in texture, it is also just so moreish. I am going to Norway tomorrow and if it wasn't for my holiday then all of the bar would have been eaten already. It's one of the most delicious and indulgent chocolate bars I've tasted and I cannot recommend it enough! This bar also has my favourite packaging design of the four that I was sent and the chocolate bar itself looks so unique when opened with the honeycomb shining out of the chocolate.
*Love Cocoa Crushed Coffee Dark Chocolate (£2.75 - SALE) - ★★★★☆
If you follow my instagram stories then you'll see just how much coffee I drink so a coffee chocolate bar is perfect for me! The 70% chocolate from Ecuador is mixed with crushed coffee beans from Pact Coffee. As with the honeycomb bar, the look is interesting with the coffee beans almost crushed into the chocolate. Coffee and chocolate is such a delicious and sophisticated combination, it's rich and dark with bitter coffee beans that I adore. I also love the crunch from the coffee beans against the smooth luxurious dark chocolate.

*Love Cocoa 70% Dark Chocolate (£4) - ★★★★☆
Lastly, the 70% chocolate from Ecuador which seems to be the home of gorgeous chocolate! Dark chocolate on it's own isn't what I'd usually go for as I prefer something a little sweeter or with differing textures although it is a very smooth and rich dark chocolate that I think will be a favourite for so many people. As with the other bars, the packaging is gorgeous and makes the bars seem extra special so I think they'd all make wonderful and slightly more unique gifts *should I mention the C word...*.

Have you tried any chocolate bars or gifts from Love Cocoa? What do you think about the packaging and flavours?

Great but...

Hi James, I've bought shares so really do support you. However, what I had wanted to get was 3 bars delivered over a 6 month period. I thought I'd done this as it was a gift. Instead they were all delivered at once, which is such a shame. Many thanks.

Hi Rachel, Thanks for your feedback and investment. I just checked your order and you chose 6 quantity on the monthly subscription which would have been sent down to our warehouse team to fulfil the order. I have cancelled your monthly subscription now and also will change the setting to allow customers only to select 1 quantity. You would then need to cancel after 6 months (or how many months you required). Sincere apologies if this wasn't clear. Kind regards, James
Incredible!

I absolutely loved this chocolate bar, so smooth and silky with a subtle hint of sea salt! One of the best i've tried! xoxo

Thanks for photo and review!

OMG! These three bars are by far the best chocolate I have ever ever tasted,..you can taste the craftsmanship and care which goes into each and every bar. So silky, smooth and not at all bitter (the dark bar). Every bar is smooth and delicious. Treat yourself today you will not regret it! =) xoxo
