Is your chocolate free from allergens?
Yes, our chocolate is free from common allergens including gluten, dairy, nuts, soy and sesame.
We also ensure that our supply chain, factory and machinery do not handle these common allergens. We regularly test our products for allergens in addition to our suppliers testing and procedures and they certify to us that the ingredients we purchase from them are free from these allergens.
What are the ingredients?
We only use the finest organic ingredients in our chocolate and NO refined sugar or common allergens. Our only ingredients are organic Peruvian cacao and cacao butter, creamed coconut, coconut palm sugar, and Madagascan bourbon vanilla.
- Cacao is full of essential minerals such as calcium, zinc, iron, copper, potassium and magnesium.
- Coconut is a great source of vitamins, minerals and fibre!
Do any of your products contain alcohol?
No, our products are free from alcohol.
Where do you source your ingredients?
To ensure that our chocolate is as delicious as possible and environmentally responsible, we only source our organic, single-origin, Peruvian cacao beans from small, family-owned farms. We also only use the finest organic Madagascan vanilla and organic creamed coconut from Indonesia.
Why did you decide to create allergen-free & environmentally responsible products?
As a health-conscious person, mother of young children, and a long-time chocolate lover, I found myself determined to create a delicious recipe for chocolate that didn’t contain the allergens and nasties found in your everyday chocolate bars. So, I experimented with some of the finest natural ingredients until I found a recipe for deliciously creamy chocolate made without refined sugar and avoiding common allergens.
It was also extremely important to me that our products didn’t harm the planet. So, from the way we source our ingredients to the way we package our products, we only use materials that are recycled and recyclable and plastic-free. Our wonderful toys are completely plastic-free and our chocolates are wrapped in a 100% plant based home compostable film!
What is the white void filler in my postal box made of?
To ensure your products arrive in optimal condition we use an eco-packing filler made from renewable non-GM maize starch which is dissolvable in water, home compostable and fully biodegradable.
How should I store my PLAYin CHOC products?
We recommend storing our chocolate at room temperature or somewhere cool, dry and out of direct sunlight – between 16c-20c.
If our chocolate is kept in direct sunlight or undergoes significant temperature change the chocolate with bloom. The surface of the chocolate will appear discoloured as the ingredients separate. This will affect the taste and texture of the chocolate, however it is still completely safe to eat.
If your chocolate has bloomed upon arrival, please return it to the place of purchase or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is the shelf life of PLAYin CHOC?
From manufacture our chocolate has 12 months shelf life, expressed as a 'Best Before Expiry Date' or 'BBE' on the packaging. This is for optimal taste and texture. However it will be safe to eat beyond this date and may be sold by retailers beyond this date. 'Use By' dates are not printed on chocolate as in reality chocolate lasts much longer, at least 6 months longer if not 12 months plus. Our chocolate is not made with any water or dairy which would aid bacterial growth.
