My favourite CBD chocolate fix! They have vegan and gluten free options (although sadly the rocky road is no longer vegan) and their products are free from palm oil. Drop into your nearest store to measure out a bucket of goodies for yourself or someone you love – no online shop or phone orders because of their ever-changing range, small-batch creations, and focus on freshness.
Kokopod’s multi-award-winning chocolate was born when founder Brigid went on exchange to Germany, where her host father worked for a worldwide commercial chocolate company, and fell in love with European chocolate. She now works from a purpose-designed commercial kitchen on the Sunshine Coast using locally sourced products and Swiss chocolate. Shop online or find a stockist near you.
