Pecan/Maca Organic Raw Chocolate
Lovechock’s Pecan/Maca Organic Raw Chocolate puts the “love” in Lovechock. A dark chocolate with crunchy nuts, soft fruits, and fresh sweet tones, it’s made with dried maca root powder that only grows at altitudes of between 3,000 and 4,500 meters in the Peruvian Andes. Maca is extremely rich in valuable nutrients that help regulate the female hormone system, increase male libido, counteract tiredness, and strengthen the immune system. Since maca enhances “that love feeling”, Lovechock just had to craft the ultimate Pecan/Maca Organic Raw Chocolate!
Lovechock uses only the best 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 (also known as “love chemicals”). 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 packaging the product, Lovechock prides itself on taking a healthy, sustainable and fair approach. They love Mother Earth! That’s why all Lovechock packaging is 100% eco-friendly. The recyclable cardboard 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 bar companies to use home compostable foil that you can throw away in any organic or compostable waste bin.
The world revolves around love for each other. Lovechock believes in treating everyone with respect, no matter who they are or where they come from. Lovechock works with carefully selected cacao suppliers that collaborate directly with small farmers. This allows Lovechock to guarantee that all farmers involved in the production of its products receive fair wages and are treated with respect.
Lovechock chocolates are created 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 be able to boast a professional chocolaterie. Lovechock believes in the talent of its team, and that’s why all of their chocolate is made by hand with love!
P.S. Lovechock wants to motivate you with every bite! Each chocolate bar package contains a special message. 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
