Day 8: Sweet Tooth

Prepare your sweet tooth for Brisbane’s best chocolate and sugar fixes!

My favourite CBD chocolate fix! All their dark chocolate products are 100% vegan and all products are free from palm oil. They also have an extensive gluten free range, and partner with Australian farms to create amazing combinations (macadamias coated in mango white chocolate? Yummm). Drop in store to measure out a bucket of goodies for yourself or someone you love. No online shop or phone orders because of their ever-changing range, small-batch creations, and focus on freshness – everything in store is made fresh in the past 72 hours for your best taste experience.

Kokopod’s multi-award-winning chocolate was born when founder Brigid went on exchange to Germany, where her host father worked for a worldwide commercial chocolate company, and fell in love with European chocolate. She now works from a purpose-designed commercial kitchen on the Sunshine Coast using locally sourced products and Swiss chocolate. See their range on the website and order online or through one of their East Coast stockists.

If chocolate isn’t your thing, Flux Valley has a mouth-watering and ever-changing selection of fudge, with vegan options available. Visit them in Fortitude Valley or check out their current fudge flavours on Facebook or Instagram.

For the gluten free chocolate lovers, what better than brownies? It’s been a while since I had one of the I Heart Brownies, but I remembers them being sticky and rich – exactly as brownies should be. Warm them up and add ice cream for an extra special treat. Visit their Fortitude Valley or Brisbane City stores, or order a special pack from their online store – they deliver Australia wide!
