Almond/Fig Organic Raw Chocolate
A sumptuous chocolate full of nuts and sweet fruit, Lovechock’s Almond/Fig Organic Raw Chocolate will make your fruity side happy. Part of the mulberry family, figs are high in natural sugars and soluble fibre, rich in minerals, and a good source of antioxidant vitamins. They are also known to help lower blood pressure and improve digestive wellness. This is truly a chocolate bar with benefits beyond incredible flavour! Lovechock’s Almond/Fig Organic Raw Chocolate elevates the classic holiday fruit to sublime decadence.
Lovechock uses only the highest quality vegan and organic ingredients. All Lovechock chocolates are made without milk, soy, or gluten. What sets this chocolate apart from others in the market is a unique cold ground technique. This method protects 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 ingredient selection to its packaging, Lovechock is committed to running a truly healthy, sustainable, and fair company. That’s why all Lovechock packaging is environmentally friendly. The recyclable cardboard packaging is made of trees sourced from sustainable cultivated forests and the inside of the cardboard wrapper is printed with organic ink. Lovechock is also one of the first chocolate companies to use compostable foil that you can throw away in any organic or compostable waste bin.
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, where people with disabilities (psychological, mental or physical) can work under supervision. It’s the only sheltered workshop to boast a professional chocolaterie! Lovechock believes in the talent of each of their team members, and that’s why their rich chocolate is made by hand with care!

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.”
