Loco Love’s small batch, artisanal chocolate has even hardline purists fooled, and incites that universal expression of joy that can only be caused by a rich, complex chocolate. Though it tastes like a proper vice should, this ‘chocolate’ is actually vegan, gluten-free and devoid of any refined sugar. Handmade from medicinal spices and superfoods and naturally sweetened with coconut blossom nectar, this is chocolate on which your hippy yoga teacher pal and her conservative, blue-collar uncle will both gleefully gorge.
