CHOC Chick Review

CHOC Chick Review: June 2017

CHOC Chick Founder Galia Orme’s, early childhood memories of making and eating chocolate in South America, have taken her on a passionate journey creating the CHOC Chick brand, that focuses on promoting a pure chocolate in its raw state, for everyone to enjoy. CHOC Chick’s yummy easy-to-use homemade chocolate kits contain raw cacao considered a “super food”, are gluten free, dairy free and have a low glycemic index. Also, CHOC Chick is soil association organic certified and their ingredients are free from dairy, soya and gluten.

Galia’s chocolatey CHOC Chick kits have scooped up various awards, being highly commended in the 2016 healthy living awards, highly commended in the superfoods Free from food awards 2016, platinum award winner in the 2016 Janey loves awards, to name just a few. The company has seen continued growth with retailers such as Holland & Barrett, Whole Foods Market, John Lewis Food Halls, Harvey Nichols, Ocado, Planet Organic and Infinity Foods, all getting on board this choctastic journey.

Galia visited Ecuador in 2011 and 2016 to directly meet with her cacao suppliers to source the finest sustainable, single origin cacao, as the origin of their ingredients is of key importance to the brand, as they ensure that they are ethically and responsibly sourced in line with their Social and Environmental Policy. To ensure traceability, they work with Cofina in Ecuador, a Rainforest Alliance certified company, that organises the collection and production of the single origin cacao we source.

Working with cooperatives of family farms CHOC Chick uses the national bean of Ecuador; single origin Nacional Arriba Fino de Aroma bean, that is renowned for its floral and fruity notes and has existed in Ecuador since Inca, Aztec and Mayan times. Provided with both the chocolate making kit and mandarin hot chocolate, it was exciting to taste the flavours of Ecuador’s national bean. The hot chocolate was deliciously divine, topped off with cream and a simple mandarin, this made for a perfect chocolatey sipper. The chocolate kit was easy to use and allowed you to get creative. I decided to create some sensational simple chocolates finished of with a variety of different toppings.

  4. What a wonderful review! I’m always so delighted when people discover and love CHOC Chick cacao as much as I do. It’s why I started my business, to enable anyone who loves chocolate to enjoy cacao and home made raw chocolates that are actually good for us, good for the farmers we work with and good for the planet. Thank you so much for the review and the lovely comments. Lots of love and chocolate, Galia xx
