I am so excited to introduce you to Team Nono, our latest collaboration!
Not only do their chocolates offer a delicious and multi-sensory taste experience with additional health benefits. They are amazingly special people and we need more people like them.
Because they say No to Gluten! No to Nuts! No to Dairy! No to Egg! No again to Artificial Colouring, GMO & Preservatives! No Hidden Sugar! No Cholesterol! and, No to compromise on quality & taste!
We bring you 2 of their boxes of beautiful, vegan, natural truffles as well as a limited edition vegan advent calendar.
Perfect gift for Vegan, Foodie, person with allergies, anyone looking to avoid high Cholesterol, or anyone who value good health.
Treats are all about indulgence but should also be nourishing.
Nono have taken all that’s unnecessary & added lot of micronutrients to their chocolates, from Calcium and Probiotic to Vitamins and antioxidants.
Their chocolates are truly special and will ‘catapult’ your mind into the new world of flavours, discovering taste buds you didn’t know that you had, infused with pleasure, relaxation and much more…. below a few of my favourite flavours. Pick form the collection classic truffles or the Chai & Spices truffles.
Ginger – known for relentless health benefits, beautifully creamy and with a sharp aftertaste.
Cinnamon & Apple – wonderful spice that can calm the mind and body as well as have powerful effects on health & metabolism
Saffron & Orange – Turmeric is the wonderful & healthy spice that is known for it aunty-inflammatory properties. Blended with Orange & Saffron flowers that works like an ‘antidepressant’ over the winter months.

All boxes are handmade in small batches, lovingly and with care by #teamnono people with Autism in their London based kitchen.
Giving forward is a beautiful concept.
At team Nono they do just that. Before you give this box of chocolates to your loved one, they have already given a work opportunity to people with Autism, who decorated your chocolates. Small suppliers supporting small businesses.
Physical and mental health go hand in hand.
We proudly stand with them when they say No to Exclusion, Discrimination, Bullies… they offer a work opportunity for people with special #teamnono needs like the founder’s son, single mums, carers and more.
Alessandra, the founder of Nono Cocoa is a woman that truly inspires me. Her words “Go where you are celebrated not tolerated” resonated with me.
The idea that a single Mum, diagnosed with a chronic condition, looking after a disabled child with complex needs, totally unemployable in the light of many recruiters… is running her own company, playing a role in her community, giving people a chance, a safe and nurturing environment is remarkable. And yet when you meet Alessandra she is unassuming, approachable and makes you feel that if she has done it so can you! Or you should give it a try because failing to try would be failing.
“If you want to change the world start with your own action at your own door step.” says Alessandra.
When asked about the values of team Nono:
Nono Exclusion was the first campaign that we ran, to bring awareness to others who may want to consider a more inclusive work environment.
Nono Stigma to the mental health issues affecting one in four people in the UK alone.
Nono Discrimination, Nono Harassment , Nono Bullies ….
We stand for what we believe in and we aren’t a charity asking for donations, but we want to create our own future where unemployable is the criteria for employment – we are
We hope you give their chocolates a try, enjoy eating them and support this vision of a better future, for everyone.
Small businesses working together. We are what we eat, what we drink, what we consume. What will today say about you?
