Winning the Guardian Christmas Selection Box Taste Test
Within less than three years of founding Cloud Cocoland, we won the 2011 Guardian Christmas Selection Box Taste Test (jointly with Fortnum & Mason and Rococo Chocolates). We are proud of all the great press reviews we get, but this was sooo exciting!
So what makes our chocolate business different?
… And why would you want to buy from Cloud Cocoland Chocolate?
Our long-established customers tell us it all comes down to three things:
the extent to which you, the customer, can specify what you want – down to, for example, having a chocolate truffle made especially for you
the unusual attention to detail and quality at every stage of the chocolate-making and wrapping process, and,
the ‘personal chocolatier’ service.
Cliché as it may sound, when the internet is awash with people proclaiming how ‘passionate’ they are about what they do, we really do love chocolate. Always have, always will. And it’s that love of luxury artisan chocolate, of the very best chocolate in the world, that keeps us enthusiastically creating new recipes and flavours …
We hope that you, the favourite people you buy for and your corporate clients all enjoy eating our lovingly produced Cloud Cocoland Chocolate as much as our team – enjoy making it!
