Hey there!

We are Dominik and Max, two chemists from Berlin. For quite some time now, we have been
wondering why the ingredient list of chocolate bars are plastered with hundreds of E-numbers. Do you actually know what E 442, E 476 or E 491 is? We do, but we ask ourselves: Does it really have to? Adding to that, the chocolates in supermarkets contain far too much unnecessary sugar! Wouldn’t it be nicer, if you could decide for yourself what you want to eat and how much of it you want to eat? That’s what we aim to do, healthy snacking without the excessive use of additives, and without unhealthy industrial sugar.

However, what do you do if you can’t find the desired product in the supermarket? Exactly: Simply make it yourself. The Do-It-Youself-Chocolate-set from “Pure Xocolate” makes it easy for you to create your own vegan chocolate with your preferred ingredients. Thus, you know every single component of your creation, without any artificial additives like preservatives, flavour enhancers or colorants. Sweet, salty, spicy or bitter - it’s all up to you. Just let your creativity run free. The basic recipes will help you succeed in any attempt, you just have to dare! Have fun, rejoice and enjoy, whether alone, with friends or family. The FUN-factor is preprogrammed.

Our package stands for fun and healthy feasting, but also for sustainability and conscious use of our resources. When putting together the boxes, we tried to keep packaging waste as low as possible. After all, they are made of biodegradable materials. But that's not all: as the icing on the cake, you plant two mangroves for each purchase. To make this happen, we cooperate with the non-profit organization "Eden Reforestation Projects" to support the reforestation of mangrove forests in countries like Madagascar, Honduras and Kenya.
Since we completely abstain from the food industry's deceptions, meaning the use of d
