Fun, delicious and with a variety of unique and unusual flavours, our GNAW chocolate bars are definitely what you need after a hour book shopping! Founded in 2011 in Norfolk, GNAW’s founders wanted to inject a bit of fun back into high quality chocolate. But that wasn’t all they wanted to do, and that is why they source their chocolate from fair-trade growers in West Africa and Brazil, checking that all production is fair and meets their high standards. They then use locally sourced ingredients from around the UK to mix and great the delicious flavours we see today, To top it all off, their chocolate also helps the plight of the Red Squirrels in England. Fairtrade chocolate, local Norfolk pride, environmental conservation and fun intriguing flavours, this chocolate seemingly has it all.
