Almond & Baobab Chocolate Tablet
Enjoy a tantalizing medley of textures and flavours that fuse the crunch of almond pieces with the zing of baobab in Lovechock’s Almond & Baobab Chocolate Tablet! If you’re not familiar with baobab, it is a fruit found in Madagascar, mainland Africa, Arabia, and Australia. Lovechock’s Almond & Baobab Chocolate Tablet features dried organic baobab powder. This superfood powder is rich in antioxidants and potassium, as well as protein, magnesium, and calcium. All Lovechock chocolate is made from specialty cacao beans from Ecuador, called Arriba Nacionale. These rare beans naturally radiate a fruity and floral aroma.
Lovechock uses only the finest organic and vegan ingredients. All Lovechock chocolates are milk free, soy free and gluten free. What makes their process different than other chocolate brands is a unique cold ground technique. This method preserves the beautiful raw cacao flavour and nutrients, namely antioxidants, or what we like to call flavonoids. One of the most impressive aspects of this brand is that all chocolates are crafted without refined sugar. In place of conventional table sugar, Lovechock uses the dried nectar of Javanese coconut palm tree blossoms, which is rich in minerals and flavonoids, and does not cause sharp changes in blood sugar levels. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), it is considered the most sustainable sugar.
From choosing ingredients to developing packaging, Lovechock prides itself on taking a sustainable and fair approach. That’s why all Lovechock packaging is 100% eco-friendly. Lovechock is one of the first chocolate bar companies to use home compostable foil that you can throw away in any organic or compostable waste bin! The cardboard packaging is made of trees from sustainable cultivated forests and the inside of the cardboard wrapper is printed with organic ink. The packaging can be recycled.
Lovechock products are made using a meticulous and complex process which demands passion and dedication. All chocolate is produced in a sheltered workshop located in Leiden, Netherlands. It’s the only sheltered workshop to boast a professional chocolaterie! Lovechock believes in the talent and capacity of each of their team members, and that’s why all of their decadent chocolate is lovingly made by hand!
P.S. Lovechock wants to motivate you with every bite! Watch for a special personalized message in every chocolate bar package. Enjoy!

Lovechock was born out of pure passion in 2007, after Lovechock Founder, Laura de Nooijer, travelled extensively through Mexico and Brazil. This journey ultimately transformed Laura’s life and unlocked a deeper curiosity about the power of plants. Laura had already been interested in raw foods and their pure life force, but her travels led her to discover what the ancient Mayas already knew about and used: the magical power of love in raw chocolate.
Shortly after returning home to the Netherlands, Laura began making her own raw chocolate at home. During this time, raw chocolate was not readily available in the Netherlands. Laura poured her enthusiasm into her hand-crafted chocolates, experimenting with different ingredients and flavours. Proud of her delicious handiwork, she would get her friends and family to taste test her creations.
Word of Laura’s delicious chocolates spread quickly and soon she was receiving orders from her friends, followed by chocolate enthusiasts outside her immediate circle. Lovechock continued to grow to the passionate brand it is today.
Lovechock wants to open people’s hearts by making the most delicious chocolate, using the finest, life-giving ingredients. Lovechock seeks to introduce people to the pure essence of cacao.
Lovechock chooses the very best raw, cold pressed cacao so that the flavonoids and “love chemicals” remain intact. Lovechocok select 100% organic ingredients and combines them with whole pieces of super fruits and nuts.
“I am still learning new things about chocolate every day. Making chocolate is a beautiful art. I love playing with ingredients, flavours the effects and the magic of chocolate. For me, cacao is a sacred plant. It is full of love, joyfulness and humour. I want to bring people back to experiencing the quintessence of the cacao plant.”
– Laura de Nooijer, founder of Lovechock
