We can all agree that when it comes to desserts, chocolate takes the cake. But even amongst chocolate bars, Creighton’s Chocolaterie stands out. Established by mother and daughter duo, the chocolaterie offers handcrafted bars, wrapped in eye-popping wrappers.
While mother, Andrea Huntington, manages the factory and production team, daughter, Lucy Elliott, is in charge of the creative side, designing each range from top to bottom. Their colorful designs are very much inspired by ’90 pop culture, with the added tongue-in-cheek reference.
“We started making chocolate in 2010 after a short course with an Italian pastry chef,” the two relayed in an interview with the Printed blog. “Originally we set up in my parent’s garage with some second-hand equipment to practice our skills, but then in 2011, we got the keys to a small shop in the local town center.”
Over the years, they have grown to over 150 stockists around the world and now have a mini-factory where they can make 10,000 chocolate bars a week, all handcrafted by an all-female team in the UK. An added bonus is that the majority of their wrappers are made from recyclable or reusable material such as paper, card, and aluminum.
