These three words are at the forefront of PLAYinCHOC's thinking. How we enjoy life and what we can do to get the most out of it, what we put in our bodies and how it makes us feel, and what we can do to protect and preserve this place we inhabit and share with the natural world.
For PLAYinCHOC ‘Joy’ means enjoying the moment, the excitement that comes from learning, exploring and using imagination – allowing our kids to escape into a world only children can inhabit.
Health means organic foods sustainably and fairly sourced. It means no refined sugars. And it means a delicious taste that makes us feel great.
Keeping our planet alive and thriving for our children means learning about the natural world and what we can do to protect and preserve it for future generations. For PLAYinCHOC this means using bio-degradable, recycled and recyclable packaging and educating our children about the harmful effects of plastic waste on the natural world.
Vegan, organic and made out of just 3 natural ingredients: cocoa beans, coconut and vanilla.
PLAYinCHOC source the finest fairly traded single origin Peruvian cacao beans grown on small family owned farms. They are then gently roasted in order to release the full flavours.
They only use the finest organic Madagascan bourbon vanilla and organic creamed coconut from Indonesia.
From the cocoa tree comes the cocoa bean - and from the bean comes cacao nibs and cacao butter. Cacao is packed full of essential minerals such as calcium, zinc, iron, copper, potassium and magnesium. Cacao also contains naturally occurring mood enhancing properties as well as antioxidants called polyphenols which are similar to those contained in green tea and red wine.
From the coconut palm tree comes the coconut and from that they PLAYinCHOC use creamed coconut and coconut sugar. Coconut contains lots of vitamins and minerals and is a delicious source of fibre. Coconut is a source of energy and has an accelerating on the metabolism. The coconut botanically is a drupe not a nut.
The vanilla vine is an orchid which is indigenous to South Eastern Mexico. Dating back to Cortez’s conquest of the Aztec Kingdom back in 1519, it is one of the most ancient flavours. Vanilla is an orchid which only lasts 24 hours. Vanilla pods are ground up to make the vanilla powder we use.
