Chocolate and love - they just seem to go together so naturally! Especially for Chocolove, a premium chocolate company based in Boulder, CO. Their dream began in a cocoa field in Indonesia and grew into a business that’s now a pioneer in the chocolate industry.
Chocolove chocolate bars are distinctly flavored bars made with all-natural ingredients. Flavors range from a sweet, creamy milk chocolate with 33% cocoa content, to an extra strong dark with an impressively strong yet smooth 77% cocoa content. Other Chocolove bars are married with flavors and ingredients like almonds, raspberries, ginger and sea salt.
Each bar is derived from pure cocoa, giving it a rich, natural flavor that’ll make you fall in love with these delightful treats! Each bar includes a love poem on the wrapper, so you can give your special someone a sweet with sweet nothings included!
What’s the connection between chocolate and love?
Phenylethylamine (PEA) is a naturally occurring compound in chocolate. When consumed, it releases endorphins in the brain and produces a mild feeling of euphoria, similar to the sensation of being in love. Other compounds that naturally occur in chocolate include serotonin, theobromine and anandamine, which are all naturally occurring compounds that elevate mood, increase circulation, and enhance sensory perception. You already knew eating chocolate makes you happy, but there’s actually science behind it!
