SINGLE-ORIGIN. The two words that seem to mark every new luxury, raw or magical chocolate. It sounds pretty fancy and you know it's probably a good thing, but what actually is Single-Origin chocolate

Answer: The epitome of awesomeness. 

Actual answer: Single-Origin means that every single little cocoa bean has been sourced from ONE place - hence the 'single' bit - so you know exactly what you're getting and where it comes from. 

Why is it super special?

Each cocoa producing region has a different climate and soil type.This is super cool because the flavour of chocolate varies - e.g. fruity, nutty, caramel-y - depending on where the beans come from.

And why is it important to us?
If you didn't already know, we recently became a B Corporation which means that we're all about using business as a force for good. Creating a single-origin bar not only allows us to produce a delicious high quality chocolate for you guys, but it means we have a direct relationship with our farmers. They're the ones who look after our cocoa beans, so a better relationship with them means better tasting choc and more of a positive social impact!
 
Our New Crunchy Almond Butter Milk Chocolate bar is made from Colombian cacao because we thought the alliteration sounded the coolest...

We're joking😆 It's because Colombian cacao is crazily delish! It tends to have a more fruity and nutty flavour which we think compliments our awesome almonds. 

And why is it super special?

Apart from the fact that it tastes seriously good? Well, the carbon footprint of our cocoa is a lot smaller because it literally travels from Colombia to us. No middle man = better for the environment. 

We believe in keeping things simple here at D&D and single-origin does just that. We know what we're getting and more importantly, SO DO YOU. Good, honest, great tasting choc kids! That's what it's all about :) 

Try our new Single-Origin - nay, single ESTATE! - Crunchy Almond Butter chocolate - even if it is a bit of a mouthful! The deliciously milky flavour of our 40% choc combined with the dark, rich notes of high quality cacao creates an indulgent, smooth and balanced bar. It truly is a mouthful - but one that's 100% delicious 😉
