Discover Food Thoughts

Food Thoughts is home to the UK’s first fairly traded organic cocoa powder in the UK. They believe that baking is an act of love, and brilliant bakes deserve the best ingredients. For over 25 years, ethics and sustainability have been at the heart of what they do. All their products are organically cultivated and sourced from fairtrade producers, then packed in fully recyclable tubs in the UK.

Their cocoa and cacao powders come from YACAO organic growers in the Dominican Republic; their chips and nibs come from Luker Chocolate, a B Corp family-owned business in Colombia founded in 1906, that works with 2,500 farming families. Natural methods are used to prepare their fairtrade beans; for example, they are sun-dried for 14 days to help lock in flavour and nutrients. Luker Chocolate’s sustainability and well-being plan The Chocolate Dream helps to develop schools, plant trees, build infrastructure and improve living conditions.

A trailblazer in crafting delectable and ethically sourced treats, they are excited to announce the launch of two innovative products that are set to elevate your baking & snacking experience.

Introducing Oat Mylk Chocolate Chips and Chocolate Coated Cacao Nibs to their range – two extraordinary offerings crafted with the finest ingredients, making your chocolate creations irresistibly delicious and nurturing your well-being, all while being nut-free, gluten-free, and dairy free.

Indulge your taste buds in the ultimate dairy-free delight with Food Thoughts’ award-winning Oat Mylk Chocolate Chips. Lovingly crafted with the utmost dedication to quality, these vegan chocolate chips are a true revelation in the world of baking. Crafted to perfection, they boast a rich chocolate flavour derived from 43% cacao solids sourced from single-origin ‘fino de aroma’ beans, placing them among the top 8% of all cacao in the world.

To ensure unparalleled creaminess and taste, a dash of oat and rice powder is expertly added, complementing the rich cacao notes perfectly. Just the right touch of sweetness completes the ensemble, leaving your creations irresistibly delectable. As with all Food Thoughts products, these vegan chocolate chips are sourced from fairly traded partners, positively impacting farming communities in Colombia and beyond. When you choose Oat Mylk Chocolate Chips, you not only treat your taste buds, but also support a sustainable and ethical food ecosystem. Food Thoughts Oat Mylk Chips will be available in 200g tubs in Waitrose and Holland & Barrett with an RRP of £4.60.

Following the success of their Great Taste Award-winning Roasted Cacao Nibs, Food Thoughts doesn’t rest on its laurels. Instead, they proudly unveil their new creation – Chocolate Coated Nibs. What could be better than cacao nibs dipped in rich, dark chocolate? These gems combine the intense flavour of single-origin ‘fino de aroma’ cacao beans with the nutritional goodness of antioxidants, fibre, and iron. And what’s even better is that they are gluten, nut and dairy-free – making them the perfect chocolate treat no matter what your diet limitations may be.

Ethically sourced and fairly traded, these Chocolate Coated Nibs offer a guilt-free indulgence that will satisfy your cravings and elevate your snacking & baking experience. Each morsel is deliciously crunchy, chocolatey, and downright addictive – a true celebration of the cacao bean’s natural allure. Food Thoughts Chocolate Coated Nibs will be available in 190g tubs in Waitrose from September, with an RRP of £4.60.

At Food Thoughts, quality is paramount. These two launches exemplify the brand’s unwavering commitment to excellence. Made with the finest ingredients and expertly crafted, Oat Mylk Chocolate Chips and Chocolate Coated Nibs elevate your chocolate experiences to an extraordinary level of deliciousness while providing you with the nutritional goodness your body deserves.
