A dark and delicate balance. Rich and heady Peruvian cacao chocolate with just a hint of fine sea salt, this is a luxurious bar with a bite.
For those who wanted to watch their sugar intake, dark chocolate was always the go to bar! I wanted to deliver a gluten free chocolate, with even lower sugar and only 60% cacao. A dark vegan chocolate but not quite as dark and bitter as the classic 70-80% cacao bars out there. The salt provides balance.
Where do you source your cacao?
We get the cacao for our bars of Peru.
Are your chocolate bars gluten free?
What are the wrappers made of?
Our wrappers are completely plastic free. The material is cellulose and carries the NatureFlex brand name - it’s made from sustainably sourced wood pulp and looks like plastic, acts like plastic, but is 100% biodegradable and compostable.
Please dispose of your wrappers along with your food or garden waste and NOT in your recycling bin.
What are your products sweetened with?
Our products are sweetened naturally with coconut sugar, lucuma and a small amount of rice syrup.
Isn’t all chocolate plant-based?
All chocolate has ingredients that originate from plants. However, most chocolate also contains dairy which is derived from animals.
The difference with Prodigy is that we only use plant-based ingredients in our chocolate, with no animal derived ingredients.
Plant-based is a phrase often used to describe foods and other products that are made from ingredients solely derived from plants and contain no animal based products and are thus vegan friendly.
It started with a road trip and two hungry kids. In 2017 having returned to London from Nigeria where we had been running our confectionery manufacturing business, we spent three weeks driving across Italy. During the trip we encountered an unexpected, yet recurrent problem. A problem that would inspire us to create our version of an answer and lead us to Prodigy.
Our kids as young kids do require regular snacks. Most days we would pull into the nearest gas station to begin the frustrating task of trying to find them something to eat, that we felt ok about them eating. A snack that would do them, the environment and the people involved in making it no harm.
Sameer started his career as a chef and restauranteur. This combined with our experience of running the confectionery business had given us deep insights into the world of food manufacturing and ingredients. Our eyes were opened to the widespread industry use of cheap, harmful ingredients and their damaging impact on the environment and our bodies.
The reality of the snacks we found on our road trip and in our local shops when we got home felt uncomfortable – rampant with refined sugars. Fuelled by a deep desire to do something about this problem and Sameer’s knowledge as a chef, we founded Prodigy.
We make delicious chocolate that enables all of us to make healthier choices for ourselves and our planet every single day. Chocolate that contains no palm oil or refined sugar, is low in natural sugar, vegan and dairy free and wrapped in compostable packaging.
We love chocolate. We’ve always loved chocolate, but somewhere along the road it lost its way. So, we went on a road trip and thanks to our children decided to bring real chocolate back, only better.
We hope you enjoy every bite,
