  • More awards + Things to come

    16 Jul

    The year is going so quickly so wanted to update what’s been happening with PLAYin CHOC.
    In April we were nominated by the visitors of the Natural Products Europe Show as finalists for Best New Organic Product for our woodland animals. The second year running – last year it was our endangered animals.
    In May we reached the shortlist of Junior Design Awards and Loved By Parents for 2 awards.
    In June we won 2 International Chocolate Salon Awards – a silver for best vegan milk chocolate and a bronze for best vegan dark chocolate.

    We also just finished a crowdcube fund raise – thank you so much to our wonderful 200 new investors! Your chocolate rewards will be going out to you very soon! 
    This  week we are moving to larger permanent premises to enable us to produce more chocolate and toys!
    We will fit out the premises to start production before end of July.
    Then in September the busy season begins till the end of the year with tons of trade shows!
    We hope to catch our breath on the way and wish you all a wonderful summer!
    Best

    Out and about with PLAYin CHOC

    07 Dec

    This last weekend we took PLAYin CHOC on the road to meet our customers face to face. We set up shop in a Steiner school fair in Kings Langley on Saturday and then on Sunday and Monday Babyccino’s SHOPUP in London.
    We were delighted by the response. Children loved the chocolate – even those who don’t usually like chocolate – and they loved building their toy, learning about it and then using the bits the toy pops out of as a stencil to draw with afterwards.

     

     

     

    Parents were busy buying lots of stocking filler and party favours or just treating their kids with a special little treat.
    It was great to answer so many questions and explain to parents what PLAYin CHOC is and stands for – health, joy, planet.
    The words “made from 100% recycled cardboard” and “individually wrapped in home compostable film” were uttered so many times they became something of a tongue twister!

     

     

    People were so positive and simply just “got” PLAYin CHOC – which filled us with a great sense of joy – to know that so much time spent thinking, planning and in development has resulted in something people actually want and value.
    A huge thank you to all our customers!
