A Taste Of My Choc O'Leight
Updated: Mar 17
My Choc O’ Leight is an ecologically conscious Company with a passion for creating artisan chocolate.
In recent years a number of media articles appeared, discussing the quality of mainstream chocolate products manufactured by large commercial corporations.
The general census reached by all involved was that the sizes of products were decreasing; and that prices were continuing to increase disproportionally.
The purity of mass-produced chocolate sold to the public was also consistently artificially enhanced with the inclusion of palm oils, fats, emulsifiers, artificial flavourings and preservatives.
My curiosity of what 'real chocolate' would taste like [without additives and chemicals] lead to my first attempts at tempering pure plain chocolate. The first several attempts resulted in frustration. The sandstone consistency of my raw chocolate was almost impossible to solve - no matter the quality of the ingredients used. However, I persevered with the challenge, and overcame the difficulties and finally produced a quality bar of chocolate. I enjoyed developing new techniques, and experimenting with flavourings, colourings & casting for different effects. I decided to try and turn my passion into a livelihood. So, I started investing my savings, and My Choc O' Leight was born. Two and a half years later we are proud to be able to write this post showcasing the current range of our finest handmade chocolate.
We use a variety of chocolates including Belgian style, made with West African Forastero beans; as well as the finest single-origin Colombian Criollo, Forestero, and Trinitario, which are hand-selected and harvested by highly skilled Colombian farmers. We have also created our own raw chocolate range.
We want to provide you with the best products and services, with no compromise to quality. We work hard to give you naturally indulgent artisan chocolate.
At My Choc O' Leight we value nature and the environment. We see ourselves within it. We are striving to develop My Choc O'Leight as a Company which is reducing, as much as is possible and practical, our impact on the environment and the planet.
We hope to contribute to the security and stability of the delicate natural wonders of the Earth; including preventing our rivers, lakes, freshwaters, and the oceans from contaminants such as non-biodegradable plastics and environmentally hazardous chemicals.
We also resource our ingredients responsibly; helping to maintain food sustainability, preventing human-wildlife conflicts, supporting sustainable development, aiding prevention of illegal trades, and tackling deforestation.
