South Pacific Cacao’s Ethical Easter Eggs (Cacao Pods) made with a ngali nut paste and 75% dark chocolate.
Tilda & Cacao’s Hazelnut Easter Dinosaur Egg. The hazelnuts are sourced locally in NSW from a local grower using organic practices.
Importantly, you are buying a product worthy of the price tag. The chocolate we sell is a far cry from the generic bars, eggs and bunnies you will get at your local Woolworths, Coles or IGA. (I mean, we have an Easter dinosaur egg – bet you can’t get one of those at the IGA). It’s not manufactured as much as it is crafted. Often by just a handful of people in a small shop or factory that have invested their lives into the creation of something special. And these makers genuinely care about the product; not just about how it tastes (although they undoubtedly do – and we taste them all to make sure ;-), but how lightly they have trodden to create it, making sure they source raw materials ethically, as locally as possible, and with packaging that won’t cost the Earth.
