So pleased to welcome Tola to ‘Conversation Between Friends’ to talk about one of our favourite subjects – CHOCOLATE!!
Hey Tola, mmm yes please don’t mind if I do! What made you decide to set up your business?
I spotted a gap in the market for bespoke wedding favours. Plus, as a new mum I was looking for a part-time business that would keep my head thinking of something other than nappy changes and apple puree!
Where does your passion for chocolate come from?
Simply reading about its history and how it’s made to be honest. I’m more of a biscuit fan or else I’d eat all of my stock!
Like red wine, chocolate attracts passionate devotees, why is this?
Cocoa which is the main ingredient used to make good chocolate contains a chemical call Serotonin. Serotonin simply makes us feel better.
Is a bar of chocolate with high cocoa content really better for you than a bar of Dairy Milk?
It actually is because the higher the Cocoa content the higher the Serotonin as well as antioxidants. Scientists have also found that cocoa is very rich in antioxidants.
‘Chocolate is a complete food’ Discuss!
There are four basic food groups – white chocolate, milk chocolate, dark chocolate and truffles.
Try me, buy me!
