The Moniaive Chocolatiers
Liz Cole’s fresh filled chocolates are just that – around 50 flavours are created from scratch using raw ingredients, including fresh fruits, that are all organic and fairly traded. Once her main seller, that accolade now goes to an idea that took off like wildfire: 'tartan chocolate' (one of those novelties that just seems like it should have happened sooner). Not transfer printed, but hand-piped chocolate lines over coloured and often flavoured backgrounds, it comes in bars and little discs of dark, milk and white chocolate, also all organic. Find glittery plaid and saltire-painted chocolate on sale from the Scottish Parliament gift shop, as well as online and in their own high street shop. They also make bars topped with berries, ginger or solid chocolate shapes.
