Kyoot, Gen Z’s go-to chocolate, adds Raspberry Pink Pepper flavour to line-up
Plant-based Belgian chocolate Kyoot – touted as “the cleanest, tastiest, good-for-you treat, made with the highest quality ingredients that you deserve and can trust” – has just added a Raspberry Pink Pepper bar to its award-winning line-up of gourmet chocolate bars.
Less than nine months since launching, Kyoot won the Soho Chance Award (a new initiative from Soho House – a group of private members’ clubs –supporting emerging entrepreneurs) in the ‘Consumer Food and Drink’ category, meaning the manufacturer’s chocolate creations are today stocked in Soho House & Co’s mini bars across the UK. The firm was up against 500 applicants for the category.
Next-level chocolate for next-gen snackers
Kyoot says it is “committed to making next-level chocolate for next-generation snackers, carefully crafted by world-class chocolatiers in Belgium, whose centuries worth of expertise and knowledge is elementary in making each bar ridiculously delicious and silky-smooth”.
Satisfying the health-trifecta (vegan, organic, gluten-free) is a given for Kyoot, but what really sets their chocolate apart is the combination of Belgian taste and quality with a sprinkling of London-cool and playfulness in the branding.
Kyoot’s premium, plant-based line-up
Kyoot’s premium, plant-based line up of chocolate bars includes:
• Original – “The OG dark. Dreamy, creamy, and seriously smooth, Original is made with just three ingredients: indulgent organic cacao, silky cacao butter, and naturally sweet coconut sugar.”
• Crunchy Salted Caramel – “Meet the salty sweetie. This velvety dark chocolate is studded with caramelised almonds and flaky sea salt. Craveably crunchy.”
• Vanilla Quinoa Pops – “This silky-smooth dark chocolate is spiked with aromatic vanilla, covered in crispy quinoa pops, and honestly, is a little fancy.”
• Raspberry Pink Pepper – The latest addition to the line-up. “If you think tart raspberries, punchy pink pepper, and impossibly creamy choc don’t go together, then think again.”
All of Kyoot’s 70 per cent dark chocolate bars are organic, vegan, gluten-free, and made from sustainably-harvested cacao. The size of the individual bars has also been increased – previously weighing in at 50g, Kyoot’s new bars are 85g.
Ethically sourced, sustainably produced
When it comes to ingredients and production, particularly in the chocolate-making sector, transparency is increasingly essential. Where industrial chocolate brands use monoculture cacao plantations, which rely on deforestation and heavy fertilisers, Kyoot takes a regenerative approach. The firm’s organic cacao is ethically grown by small-scale farmers in the heart of the Peruvian Amazon, alongside a wide variety of indigenous plants. The result is healthier soil, more carbon sequestration, increased biodiversity, and a diversified income stream for farmers.
However, Kyoot’s sustainability commitment goes beyond the bar, with the company having sourced 100 per cent fully recyclable paper packaging printed with bio inks that is easy to open while maintaining the freshness of the chocolate inside.
Just a year post-launch, Kyoot is already stocked in London’s favourite concept stores, newsagents, and gourmet grocers – from Supermarket of Dreams, the Design Museum, and Wild & The Moon, to Panzer’s Deli, Shreeji Newsagents, and Mira Mikati’s Happy House. Kyoot is available online from eatkyoot.com and a full stockist list can be found at www.eatkyoot.com/pages/stockists
Prices start from £3.99 RRP per 85g bar.
