Dandelion Cocoa Chocolate


Me and chocolate go back a long way. I have often used chocolate for comfort, meaning that I often inhale rather than enjoy, and before I know it, it's disappeared.

Eating is something that we do every day, but how often do we actually taste what we are eating? How often do we focus on just eating rather than eating while watching TV or scrolling on the internet?

When I was unwell, it felt like my senses were heightened so if I was doing more than one thing at a time, it could become a bit of a battle. This is when I needed to slow down and focus on one task at a time.

I find that if I treat myself to a more luxurious bar of chocolate rather than one that I can pick up in a supermarket, I will take the time to enjoy it rather than wolfing it down in one sitting. This encourages me to engage my senses and really taste the delicious flavours which brings me so much more enjoyment.

I sampled many chocolates and snacks before choosing the perfect one for the boxes. Dandelion Cocoa is the BEST chocolate I have EVER tasted and believe me, I have tried a lot! The quality and luxuriousness of this chocolate is first class, a real treat for Soothe Box owners. Each bar is handcrafted and packed which makes them extra special.

Being a small business, it makes me happy to support other small businesses and the owner, Sorrel, is truly lovely and works extremely hard to produce all the yummies they make. They are based in Sheffield which, to be honest, is a godsend because I would be in there every day!

The 85g bars come in 5 different flavours-

Crispy Feuilletine- Belgian milk chocolate with caramelised flaked pastry. Honeycomb Crunch- Belgian milk chocolate filled with honeycomb pieces.          Ghana 40% Milk Chocolate bar-  Single Origin silky milk chocolate.                      Blonde Caramel- 35% white chocolate with notes of salted caramel (my fave)       Dark Chocolate with Cocoa Nibs- 72% dark chocolate - suitable for vegans         *all chocolates are made in a kitchen which handles dairy, nuts and gluten*

Each bar comes with a corresponding 'Soothe Moment' which encourages the recipient to enjoy the chocolate using a combination of mindfulness and self-compassion. Just as I have done throughout my recovery.
