My story

Dandy’s Raw Choc is handmade by me, Dandy,

using only the purest ingredients and is certified organic with the Soil Association and certified vegan with the Vegan Society. The bars come in seven flavours and they are packaged in home compostable packaging. For many years I experienced intolerances to the refined ingredients in ordinary chocolate bars, but as a lover of chocolate I wanted to experiment with cacao and decided to create my own raw chocolate. During this time, I was inspired to become a nutritional therapist qualifying in 2018. 

In a market flooded with so many processed and inauthentic products, Dandy's Raw Choc bars are made with ingredients that have been carefully selected to deliver a strong nutritional profile that enhances the many nutritional benefits of cacao. Cacao is high in antioxidants, protein, healthy fats and neurotransmitters, including anandamide known as ‘the bliss chemical’.

Nutritional profile

​Cacao is also rich in minerals manganese, sulphur and magnesium.

Magnesium is especially important for relaxing our muscles and is constantly required by the body when we experience stress. It is one of the most important minerals for maintaining mental health, bone and heart health.

Mood Food

​Speaking of the heart, cacao contains PEA (phenethylamine), a chemical produced in the brain when we feel happy. We produce high levels of PEA when we are in love, engaged in a creative activity and having fun. Cacao is also rich in amino acids including the essential amino acid tryptophan which is used by the brain to make the neurotransmitter serotonin, our ‘happy’ brain chemical. I have suffered with SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder), in the past and I found eating cacao really helped me feel better mentally and emotionally.

Chocolate that's good for you and the planet!

The food industry is big on mass production and we pay a price with our health when we choose highly processed foods that have been treated with chemicals. That's why choosing foods that are made with pure and natural ingredients is the best way to maintain good health.

'The Soil Association has higher organic standards than required by the GB Organic Regulation in key areas: delivering the highest levels of animal welfare, protecting human and animal health, safeguarding the environment and protecting the interests of organic consumers.

 Together We Can Protect Nature - Together We Can Make a World of Difference.'
