Lauden Chocolates taste amazing, are made with the finest ingredients and are miniature works of art.
Chocolate was developed out of the frustration of the owners, Sun and Stephen at not being able to
buy fine chocolate where they live. They would regularly visit some
fantastic chocolatier with a great shopping experience and customer
service, but their taste buds were more than often left unsatisfied. To Sun and Stephen “It’s all about the Chocolate!” so they
decided to make their own.
They spent all their spare time learning, researching
ingredients and refining their chocolate palate. They wanted to find
the finest Cacao in the world, to make the finest chocolates in the
world. A tall order, but one they are certainly on the road to success
with when they won Bronze at the Academy of Chocolate Awards in 2009 in
the category of Best Dark Truffle.
believes the chocolate industry is going
through a revolution as the consumer starts to recognise and look for
fine tasting chocolates, rather than the high sugar low quality
chocolates that are available every where. Much like Sun and Stephen,
people want chocolate with character, depth and a lasting taste. As with
wine, once you have tasted the
finest you cannot go back.
"It’s all about balancing fine ingredients with
one another to produce the best chocolate! Just because you are using
the finest ingredients does not mean you will produce the best products.
It is the marriage of these ingredients that produces the best!"says Sun.
Lauden Chocolate first tested their creations on the
public at their local Farmers Market in Leeds. The response was fantastic
and they knew there were people out there who shared their passion for
fine chocolate and the Lauden chocolates they had just tasted. The company has recently opened its
own factory in the centre of Leeds.
