'High vibe' chocolate is taking the world by storm, with fans such as Alessandra Ambrosio, Donna Hay and Kelly Slater spruiking the benefits.
Over the past nine months, Aussie chocolate company, Loco Love has seen sales of its ‘high vibe’ chocolate bars triple.
Handmade in Byron Bay, the company is building a cult following for its stunning packaging, handmade organic and vegan bars created with tonic herbs, healing spices and superfoods.
Founder, Emica Penklis has spent a decade experimenting with healthy sweet treats from her home kitchen and dreaming of a world where healthy chocolate was the norm, and it seems now she's hit her stride.
“In nine months, we’ve tripled our sales which I put down to our relentless pursuit to reimagine and create healthy treats that taste as good as the real thing, along with innovations in creating a shelf-stable product and new packaging," she says.
"To me, it’s all about flavour. I want to eat healthy chocolates that taste as good as less healthy alternatives, so we blend traditional methods with healthy, super high quality ingredients."
Some of these ingredients include Lion’s Mane mushroom extract (known to increase mental focus), coconut blossom nectar and medicinal mushrooms and He Shou Wu - a herb known for its abilities to boost longevity and help the body combat stress.
