About Cornwall's Chocolate Cove
(Me, enjoying a day out to St Agnes beach.)
"Cornwall's Chocolate Cove make the best slabs of utterly fabulous chocolate that I have EVER eaten..." Dame Joanna Lumley, OBE
HOW IT ALL BEGAN: Once upon a time, I was diagnosed with cancer...three times. The first time I was completely shocked, thought it was all about diet and threw myself into taking on a 3 year Nutritional Therapy course. The second time I thought, "Hmmm, not all diet then, must be all about positive energy!", so launched myself into Hay House books and trained to be an EFTMR Practitioner. By the third time all the stress, the treatment, the "perfect" diet had just left me feeling exhausted AND I'd really been missing delicious hiding-in-the-cupboard naughty treats that I'd been denying myself for years. So, instead of taking on another fight, I took a breath, slowed down and decided to take time to appreciate all life, have fun, compassion and kindness as my foundation and experiment with wonderful, nutrient rich ingredients to develop recipes for all the moorishly mouth watering delights I'd missed so much. Then in 2015, after much experimenting and tasting, Cornwall's Chocolate Cove was born and my health has been fabulous!
A WORD ABOUT INGREDIENTS: As you nibble or chomp on your chocs, you can be cosy in the knowledge that all of our cacao, cacao butter and coconut sugar is ethically sourced, organically grown and everything is raw (think of all those antioxidants), free from palm oil, soya, gluten, cane sugar and vegan (plant based, no dairy) made with nutrient rich, healthier ingredients - making the chocs kinder to your body, kinder to animals and kinder to the environment.
A WORD ABOUT PACKAGING: We also use sustainable packaging whereby the 'plastic' is made from compostable plant starch and the card box is printed locally, made from recycled paper and is part of the Woodland Carbon Scheme - making the chocs kinder to the environment.
A WORD ABOUT CHARITIES: With a great love for animals I wanted to do more than just words of support, so a small portion of the purchase price from two of the chocs (and some of the gift boxes) goes directly to The Born Free Foundation ("Keep Wildlife in the Wild") Viva! ("Be Kind to All Kind") - making the chocs kinder to animals.
A WORD ABOUT YOU: It genuinely means so much to me that you love the chocs - that you've even taken the time to read this. Your support is everything and each website order, each shop purchase, each gasp of delight when you try the tasters, actually lifts my heart in a little dance of joy. I feel very privileged and humbled that the love for the chocs has developed such a wonderful, loyal, growing following of sparkling people - that's you - so thank you for your kindness and your support - you're the ones that are keeping the little choc beauties going and enabling me to live a wonderful chocolatey life.
WHERE WE ARE: Our little shop is tucked away in St Ives, in the Drill Hall Shopping Arcade, Chapel Street, TR26 2LR (just opposite and down a bit from the cinema). I hope that if you're ever in St Ives, you'll search me out, pop in and say "hello!"
Wishing you a life of joy, freedom and kindness to all,
Cornwall’s Chocolate Cove, The Drill Hall, Chapel Street, St Ives, TR26 2LR
