Thank You NHS

Thank You NHS

We loved this article from our friends at Coco Chocolatier and wanted to share this with you. Looking for a present for your best friend? Chocolate has to be one of the best thinking of you gifts.

Written by Calum Haggerty, Owner of Coco Chocolatier

As an independent business we decided to show our support for the outstanding work carried out by the NHS during the Coronavirus pandemic in our own way; merging artwork with single origin chocolate is what we do, and it felt right to dedicate a collection to our National Health Service. We paired up with artists Sir Billy Connolly, Andrew Rae and Portis Wasp to create the Thank You NHS Collection.

I hope this project will convey our gratitude and admiration for the NHS at this very difficult time, and that the funds raised will be helpful to its workers who are demonstrating incredible courage and dedication. I'm grateful to all the three artists who kindly donated their artwork for the purpose of this collection, and helped us get the project off the ground by bringing enthusiasm and talent to the table.

The Thank You NHS collection is made of three single origin 80g chocolate bars, featuring artworks by Sir Billy Connolly, Andrew Rae and Portis Wasp. Enveloped in these stunning designs that pay homage to our National Health Service, each bar is one of our most popular flavours: Colombian Dark, Colombian Milk and Isle of Skye Sea Salt Dark.  For each individual bar sold we will donate £5 to a NHS charity, and for each collection sold we will donate £15 to a NHS charity.

Why do people love chocolate?
Why do people love chocolate?

Chocolate is made from the beans of the tropical cacao tree. Most of these trees are grown in Western Africa where the tropical climate is perfect for cacao beans to flourish. But why is chocolate so addictively delicious? The answer may be more complex than you realise.

We at the Hamper Lounge have hand picked a wide range of gifts including some exquisitely delicious chocolate hamper selections.

The chemistry of chocolate actually plays a huge part in why it is so well-loved and delicious. There are a few hundred chemicals within your typical bar but the most important ones are theobromine, anandamide and caffeine. Theobromine and caffeine are stimulants and, although they only appear in miniscule amounts, it’s enough to give chocolate that addictive feel which means you can never just have one square! Feeling chocolatey yet? Try our scrumptious ‘I Love Chocolate Mini Box’ to get your chocolate fix or send to a chocolate-obsessed friend today.

Another important element of chocolate is a chemical called anandamide. This is a neurotransmitter and actually comes from the Sanskrit "ananda", meaning ‘joy or bliss’. This chemical stimulates the brain and releases a sort of ‘chocolate high’.
