Remember when you were a kid and everything was really exciting despite the fact that, actually, it was a-little-bit-slash-very crap? Disney gel-pens that didn’t work. Plastic dolls pushing wildly unrealistic body proportions. Chocolate so inviting in its shiny wrapping and sheer variety that an obscenely high sugar-to-cocoa ratio couldn’t be lower down on your non-existent list of troubles?
At Doisy and Dam, we understand that you – the very grown-up British public – have come a long way since those days. You own house plants now. A Keep Cup. You bought sourdough once, even kept it on a questionable-at-best shelf that you put up yourself.
The point being, you are sophistiqué: you have a social and environmental conscience. Refined taste buds. And you look at the mass confectionary market and, like us, you feel sad.
We all crave the excitement we used to feel when browsing supermarket shelves of sweet treats. Not just the bars, but the buttons, the balls, the sugar-coated drops!
We want this kind of excitement...
The thing is, when we – the very grown-up British public – want, say, ethical chocolate, lower sugar chocolate, vegan chocolate, better chocolate… We’re left with very little choice.
So we thought we’d do something about it.
Imagine a world where all of your favourite childhood chocolate treats were even better than you remember. Chocolate that still has the power to magically fix a crap day, with a smorgasbord of unique flavours, fun forms and irresistible textures — except in this world, cocoa farmers are fairly paid. Cocoa content is high. And no one’s losing out in its production or ingredients. Palm oil free chocolate? Check! Vegan chocolate? Check! Delicious chocolate? Check!
That’s a world we want to live in. A better world, filled with better ingredients, better ethics, and better chocolate. Welcome to the world of Doisy and Dam.
