After being to the US we stopped in Auckland to see family. They suggested a day visit to Devonport. This is where we find these lovely chocolates. They went down nicely with coffee. We also bought some home as well.

Thank you so much for your review we will take it on board. We are looking into the 80% being chalky today and testing our batches. It is a bean to bar chocolate and is minimally processed, so very earthy in taste and texture. We...More

Thank you so much for your review. Our chocolates are handmade and are delicious. Our 80% is handmade as well and I agree very different from Lindt. Ours is a handmade bean to bar that results in an earthy texture and taste.
