Welcome to Cocoa Libre. I am Louise and I started this venture when one of my little boys developed a dairy-intolerance. I wanted him to continue to enjoy food and the same kind of lovely chocolate treats my other child enjoyed on occasion. This was especially the case around certain times of year and I couldn't find products which tasted fantastic and were exciting to receive or see on the shelf at the shops.
So with my love of gorgeous food and my graphic design background I developed Cocoa Libre, with the intention of bringing really exciting and lovely chocolates onto the shelves that could be enjoyed by everybody regardless of your health, lifestyle choices or beliefs. The milk chocolate is made with rice-milk which is sustainable and makes the chocolate creamy and indistinguishable from conventional milk chocolate.
I have a fabulous small team who work with me at our allergen free facility in North Somerset - we all love what we do and are proud of our products!
Our current lovingly hand-made collection includes the following:
RICE MILK: Delicious dairy-free rice milk chocolate bars in a gorgeous box, and packets of 4 or 10 sheep (almost a bit too cute to eat!) little chicks, santas and reindeer and penguins!
ORANGE RICE MILK: We also have a dairy-free orange rice milk chocolate bars in a gift box and packets of 4 or 10 hoppity, orange frogs. These guys are in demand!
Look out for our fab Christmas reindeer and santas coming in a few months...
DARK: Dark dairy-free chocolate bars and packets of 10 lovely, growly bears and gift boxes of stunning patterned knackali, they have to be seen to be believed!
DARK MINT: Minty chocolate owls in packs of 4 or 10 and we make mint bars too. There is no bitterness to our tasty dark chocolate. In fact our owls won a Taste of the West highly commended award!! Mint penguins (my fave) coming soon
SPECIAL FLAVOURS: 3 mini slabs in delicious dark raspberry, dark orange with ginger and rice milk honeycomb. Lovely gift or why not have it all to yourself! These slabs just won Highly Commended at the Free From Food Awards 2016...
HONEYCOMB: Honeycomb slab bars now available!!
