HOW WE COMPARE TO OTHER CHOCOLATE AND TOY COMPANiES
Our Unique Approach to Ethical and Sustainable Chocolate and Toys
At PLAYin CHOC®, we are proud of the quality of our products and their positive impact on the world. We strive to create delicious and healthy chocolate treats that can be enjoyed by everyone, and are committed to eliminating single-use plastic and packaging.
Our founder, Maya Simler, created PLAYin CHOC® based on her desire to provide a healthier chocolate treat for her children, who have lactose intolerance, and to address the issue of excessive plastic waste.
We believe in educating the next generation about our planet's biodiversity, which is why our ToyChoc Box® range includes educational fun facts cards about each animal that promotes awareness, conversation, and action.
Allergy Free Chocolate
Our chocolate recipe is vegan, free from the 14 main allergens (including dairy, nut, soy, and gluten), and made from just three natural and organic plants: cacao from small family-owned farm collectives in Peru, Madagascan Bourbon vanilla, and vitamin-rich Indonesian and Sri Lankan coconut. These ingredients are certified organic by the Soil Association, which helps reduce pollution and soil erosion, eliminates the use of pesticides, and provides better wages for farmers.
UK Manufactured Chocolate
Unlike other chocolate brands, we manufacture our chocolate in our own Salsa-certified artisan facility in the UK and do not use couverture. Our cacao beans are gently roasted to release their full flavour and then combined with creamed coconut and coconut sugar, as well as Madagascan Bourbon vanilla. The liquid chocolate is then poured into 10g moulds and set before being wrapped and packed into individual boxes.
Our ToyChoc Box® is organic, vegan, dairy-free, and 14-allergen free, and we are proud to have eliminated plastic from our packaging.

A PLANET FRIENDLY SPOOKY HALLOWEEN
Every year, millions of pounds of chocolate and sweet wrappers, plastic pumpkin buckets, and rubber masks end up in our landfills. In addition to the environmental damage wrought by all this waste, the process of producing all this Halloween paraphernalia takes a toll on our planet as well.
