We’ve soured Cornwall to bring to you our top pick of the healthy, vegan and still delicious alternative chocolate on offer…

These organic, raw, vegan alternative chocolates are a welcome delight! They’re flavoured with the exotic (such as baobab, gold leaf and Tonka beans) and decorated so beautifully you almost don’t want to tuck in. A perfect gift for Valentines day as they come so beautifully packaged and are so uniquely artisan they stand head and shoulders above the usual supermarket tray selections.
Food of the Gods, St Just

Check out the website where the Health Benefits are fully explained. This chocolate also tastes great, and with five different varieties, there’s something for every chocolate lover out there.
The Raw Chocolate Pie Company, St Ives
With bright packaging and special valentines packs these raw chocolate pies are perfect for a fun loving loved one, and with names such as ‘Naked Pie’ they’re also perfect for Valentines!
Not chocolate in the traditional sense, but as this blog is all about the heathy side of chocolate these really had to make the list; sweet, healthy and creamy this ice-cream comes in five different flavours. These flavours include two chocolatey ones; raw chocolate and mint choc chip, perfect for a healthy valentines dessert!
The closest chocolate maker to the Health Club, the chocolate here is all small batch and the beans are traceable back to their source. Though some of the offerings are the less healthy milk chocolate, Chocolarder makes excellent dark chocolate with three different strengths; 70%, 80% and 100%. The quality wrapping and luxurious display boxes (if you buy three bars!) make this amazing chocolate even more special.
