Feeding Your Imagination scoops up even more awards for their mood enhancing chocolate…

Bristol based chocolate company Feeding Your Imagination has recently received four Gold stars from the Great Taste Awards for their Fairtrade chocolate bars. The annual awards are organised by the Guild of Fine Food and are widely considered as one of the highest benchmarks for speciality food within the industry.

All bars are 100g in weight and have alluring names such as Sensual, Sexy and Seductive. Hand-made using natural essential oils and herbs, these therapeutic chocolates are blended with the finest Belgian cocoa to create a chocolate bar that is rich, creamy and full of therapeutic properties.

The “Sexy” bar is Fairtrade milk chocolate with added essential oil of chilli - not for the faint hearted. This mildly hot luxurious treat received one Gold star. The “Sensual” bar also received a Gold award and is Fairtrade milk chocolate with a subtle hint of sweet orange oil, combined with a few drops of nutmeg and chilli. The biggest winner of the event was the “Seductive” Fairtrade dark chocolate bar with ginger, jasmine green tea and goji berries, this came out on top with two Gold stars.

The success behind the Feeding Your Imagination brand may be rooted in Master Chef and Director, Paul Da-Costa-Greaves’ cooking thesis. His background as a spiritual healer leads him to create an “alternative” chocolate indulgence in the kitchen. ‘I believe that through working with complimentary essential oils we can aid natural health and restore balance. I have used this harmony of essential oils and herbs and infused it into chocolate - my aim is to create a fabulous tasting, Zen-like experience for every day issues like fatigue, restlessness and indigestion.’ Says Paul.

This is what Paul calls a “massage from within”. ‘Every chocolate bar is tailored to create a mood or an emotional wellbeing,’ Paul explains. ‘The blend of crushed goji berries and jasmine green tea used in the “Seductive” chocolate bar is known to aid relaxation and harmonise any unbalances. A few squares of this 73% dark chocolate with its anti-oxidant rich ingredients, can help to relieve the stresses of a hard day.’

The company has fifteen chocolate bars in the range which are all available throughout the UK, either online or via approved stockists. Other award winning products in the Feeding Your Imagination range this year include the legendary Christmas pudding. This received one Gold in the Great Taste Awards and one Gold in the Taste of the West Awards.
