We are animal free!

Our products contain zero animal products and are completely dairy free. This means they are suitable for lactose intolerant people, lactose free people, vegetarians, vegans and those living plant based!

Our products contain soya and coconut as cows milk substitutes. We still make sure our products have that deliciously chocolatey creamy flavour and texture.

Did you know Hot Chocolate was originally made without dairy products?

Hot chocolate has been traced back to Mayan culture 1500bc where cocoa beans were crushed with chill and cornmeal to produce a drink that was so good it was worshipped.

Got Mïłk?

This blog is here to help you decide what kind of milk is best to have with our hot chocolate Original.

As you’ve probably gathered by now we are a vegan/ plant based company. Our products were designed & tested to be used with plant milks, however we’ve had a lot of feedback that they work great with cows milk too, but it’s not really what we are about, so here is our plant milk advice…..

Almond Milk

This came up tops on all of our taste tests. We get told a lot our hot chocolate is not too sweet, which a lot of people love, but if that’s not you then sweetened almond milk perfectly balances the mix.

Rice Milk

We love that rice milk doesn’t bring much flavour with it, so you can really taste the chocolate, but we found most made the hot chocolate a little too thin.

Coconut Milk

If you want to add the coconut flavour this was delicious. Coconut, chocolaty and yummy.

Hemp Milk

We found this was a good consistency, but didn’t compliment the chocolate well at all!

Oat Milk

Oat milk was the perfect thick consistency, but dulled the chocolate a little and didn’t provide the sweetness of the Almond milk.

Oat Cream

We have started using oat cream for a super thick almost pudding like drink. Add a tiny bit more powder for that ultimately luxurious drink.

Our products & how to make them…

Luxury hot chocolate designed, made and inspired by Iceland.

We have two products Original and Adventure:

Original to add to the hot milk.

We recommend you stir two generous tsp of your LUXURY ICELANDIC DRINKING CHOCOLATE to 180ml of your favourite hot milk, simmer in a pan until it thickens slightly & enjoy!

We recommend oat or almond milk as it compliments the mix so nicely.

Adventure to add to hot water.

Add 180ml of hot water to 3 tsp of the ICELANDIC ADVENTURE DRINKING CHOCOLATE for a taste of luxury anywhere.

It’s perfect to pop in a flask in the morning and it’ll be nice and thick for when you need it.

Both products are designed to be vegan. We describe them as ‘plant based’ on our label as we produce them in a communal catering kitchen (Eldstæðið) where none vegan products are used and produced, so we can never 100% guarantee zero cross contamination. We aim to be an ethical company always.

Our sustainability…

We know that as an ethical company who wants to have a positive impact in the world we must be honest. So this blog is all about what we do well and what we are working on.

So let’s start with the positives!

  • We are vegan. This means that we use no animal products in any of our products.
  • We are zero waste. This means we use packing which can be either reused or recycled.
  • We are Icelandic. This means all the energy used by us are made using sustainable sources.

What we are working on….

  • Our partnerships. We want to work closely with our local community and charities.
  • Our ingredients. We want to aim for more of our ingredients to be sourced locally and strengthen our shared values throughout the supply chain.
  • Our delivery. We would love to have an electric van.
