CHOC Chick Raw Chocolates

CHOC Chick Raw Chocolates, a privately funded limited company based in Brighton, was set up by South American born Galia Orme in September 2008 to promote the fun and benefits of making chocolate using authentic and high quality organic cacao ingredients.

Their aim is to enable people to make their own healthy raw chocolate as an alternative to commercially processed chocolate, which is high in hydrogenated fats, processed sugars, soya, dairy products and additives.

Raw chocolate is renowned for its beneficial properties and long been considered a “super food”, rich in magnesium and antioxidant flavanols. Raw cacao powder contains over 300 nutritional compounds and up to three times the antioxidants found in green tea and nearly twice the antioxidants of red wine.* Unfortunately many of these nutritional benefits are lost when chocolate is commercially produced as even store bought organic chocolate requires processing, the addition of alkalis (Dutching), stabilizers and additives that can reduce much of the natural goodness found in cacao.

Making your own raw chocolate is not just about the health benefits, it’s a fun and creative way to enjoy chocolate in its purest form. Anyone can be a CHOColatier! Their simple recipes enable people to experiment with different flavours such as chilli, rose water, fruit and nuts, cardamom and salt or liqueurs and create delicious and unique chocolates that are genuine taste sensations.

Their flagship products, the CHOC Chick Kit and our new CHOC Chicos (Cheeky Chocolate Kit for Kids), contain everything needed to make homemade chocolates, truffles and other CHOCtastic raw chocolate recipes. The raw chocolate making kits come in a range of sizes and include 100% cacao ingredients; organic raw cacao powder, organic raw cacao butter and Sweet Freedom (a low GL natural sweetener made 100% from fruit). They cater for raw chocolate making novices to real connoisseurs and have developed easy to follow recipes so anyone can discover the joys of chocolate making.

The bestselling CHOC Chick Starter Kits and CHOC Chick Master Kits were launched for Christmas 2010 and are available online www.chocchick.com and at John Lewis Food Halls (Oxford Street and Bluewater), Harvey Nichols (Christmas 2012), Whole Foods Market, Planet Organic, Infinity Foods, Magasin Du Nord (Copenhagen) and several other independent retailers throughout the UK and Europe. The new CHOC Chicos Kit is specifically designed for children and was launched in September 2012. This new CHOC Kit is now available at John Lewis Food Halls, Whole Foods Market, Westmorland and online http://chocchick.com/pages/Choc-Chicos.html.
