2. How do I store my Cocoa Amore chocolate?
We advise you enjoy your Cocoa Amore goodies as soon as possible. However, if you’re wanting to save them for a special occasion, somewhere cool, dry, and away from direct sunlight is best. DO NOT refrigerate as chocolate will absorb moisture and odours in the fridge. Chocolate is happiest in temperatures between 14-20 degrees and humidity levels no higher than 40% to ensure they maintain their quality and taste!
3. Is your packaging eco-friendly?
All of our online orders are packaged in maize-based packing peanuts which are 100% biodegradable.Our Noir Range chocolates are packaged in cardboard sleeves with metal lids and bottoms. These can be recycled.
