Chocolate Trading Company Review

Everyone loves chocolate, but let’s be honest, there’s a lot of cr*p out there. It’s hard to find a company offering a range of high quality brands that you can trust and, if you find one, it tends to break the bank. That’s why we were so excited when we stumbled across Chocolate Trading Company!

Chocolate Trading Company

Chocolate Trading Company is the largest independent online chocolate shop in the UK, specialising in the finest chocolates from around the world. Founded in 2002, it has grown rapidly to become one of the best sources of quality and artisanal chocolate in the country, offering cocoa wares to its customers at surprisingly reasonable prices.

The Brands

Carefully curation collections of boxes, bars and hampers from nearly 30 of the world’s finest chocolatiers, Cocktail Trading Company has something for everyone, from Swedish-born, Madagascar-raised Bertil Akesson’s eponymously named brand Akesson’s that specialised in fine flavoured cocoa and spices (try his Madagascar 75% Dark Chocolate & Wild Black Pepper); to the organic, Fairtrade, Austrian Zotter’s range of ‘filled chocolate bars’, nougat, cocoa nibs, drinking chocolate and famous single origin chocolate bars.


Other highlights include the dairy, wheat and gluten free Booja-Booja; exquisite UK ‘bean to bar’ cacaofevier’s Duffy’s (highly rated by Paul A. Young and other master chocolatiers); gourmet French artisan’s Valrhona; and British-owned ‘bean to bar’, single estate and origin specialists, Willie’s Cocao.
