I’ve said it before and I’ll just keep reaffirming that Dapaah Chocolates is the best vegan chocolate I’ve ever tasted. You could say I’m biased but I’m allowed to be. I’ve had an obsession with chocolate since being a small child. My nickname growing up was choc as I was either holding some or had it all over my face. I mean do you really enjoy food unless you are wearing it?
What do you know about your favourite chocolate brand?
When I buy a product from a company, essentially I’m investing in their story and mission. Consumers more than ever look into companies before purchasing and investing and I personally love buying from a small businesses over corporate companies. Purchasing from smaller businesses helps to support them which in turn makes their brand stronger and reputable. It gives me a sense of belonging knowing what I choose to invest in with my money can make a difference.
Besides the amazing taste of the chocolate, there are many things I love about Dapaah Chocolates. One of them is how they’ve paid tribute to a family legacy of almost six decades by bringing to life their luxury chocolate from Ghana. Despite producing as much as 20% of the world’s global supply of cocoa, Ghana does not have a single chocolate brand that is globally recognised. Something Raphael and the sibling co-founders Kwaku and Afia Valerie are looking to change, is to become an internationally esteemed luxury chocolate brand that celebrates the rich heritage and origin of their premium cocoa. Their long term ambition is to build a sustainable chocolate factory in rural Ghana, which will provide new opportunities, jobs and better wages for the local cocoa farming communities.
What does Dapaah Chocolate taste like?
I’m lucky that I’ve tried all of the three flavours, Dark, Mylk and White. Despite what flavour you pick, one thing you can be sure of is the smooth texture, creaminess and that flavour! The one I’ve been eating whilst writing this is the white chocolate, whilst most white vegan chocolates can be disappointing and bland, this one isn’t. Within a few seconds you can taste the vanilla extract which is organic and from Madagascar. Other ingredients found in their other flavours are the natural sea salt from Ghana, Morocco, South Africa and Djibouti which Dapaah Chocolates proudly source themselves. The only negative I can say about this chocolate is that one piece isn’t enough and before you know the whole damn bar has gone… It’s that good.
To make a single bar, like mine pictured above, it takes 72 hours to perfect and create. Turning the finest organic cocoa beans to a premium chocolate bar is simply a process that cannot be rushed. As the saying goes, good things come to those who wait. If like me, you love chocolate, check out their instagram for their mouth watering chocolate revelation.
Made with coconut milk, Dapaah Chocolates is dairy-free, which is ideal for people who are lactose intolerant or vegan. I rejoice because I simply love this chocolate!
