The Candy Stripe series
The Candy Stripe series is the brand new name of our flagship chocolates, formerly known as 1888. These chocolates are crafted from premium, specially-selected cocoa, unrefined cane sugar and organic cocoa butter, creating a luxurious chocolate indulgence.
Most of our greeting cones are bought as gifts, and the givers often want to share a message with the receivers. To help make yours the perfect gift, our cones have a range of different messages printed on their labels so you can warm both their hearts and their taste buds!
We believe that following your dreams and being true to yourself is what life’s all about.
As far back as the late 1800s, when cacao first arrived in Malmö, Mazetti, who ran his business from our old factory, was far ahead of his time in living his life like a global citizen. Today, Malmö Chokladfabrik is eager to see Mazetti’s spirit live on.
Part of our commitment to creating a happy, sustainable world involves using organic cacao beans whenever possible, supporting Fairtrade and using raw ingredients that are 100-per-cent free from nuts and other allergens. What’s more, we also insist that our partners and suppliers share our ideals and values.
In short, we aim to make a difference – to do our part and to create opportunities for others who, just like us, have their hearts set on living their dreams. We believe that what chocolate can do for the world is only limited by the boundaries of imagination.
If we can dream it, we can do it!
Did you know that our chocolate is completely free from nuts, egg, gluten, soy, almonds and other allergens? No? You’re not alone.
Despite the fact that we’ve been making our own special brand of chocolate for ten years now, not many people know this about us. “Why is that?” you might ask. “Shouldn’t you get the word out?”
Probably the single biggest reason for our best-kept secret remaining hidden is that the rules that govern how food products (including chocolate) are labelled are both complex and constantly changing. The Swedish National Food Agency is clear that an ingredient can’t be listed as “missing” from a food product if its absence isn’t relevant. And that’s a really good thing. Otherwise we as consumers might be tricked into buying bread that is “guaranteed free from phosphorus” or an apple tart “100-per-cent free from added sulphur”.
The problem with chocolate is that 99.9% of all chocolate bars carry the warning label “May contain traces of nuts” since they’re produced in factories that also process nuts. It’s not that they necessarily contain traces of nuts, but there’s a risk that they might. For people without nut allergies, or those who have only mild nut allergies, this is no big deal. But for people with serious nut allergies, it can mean life or death.
In reality though, nuts are not a normal ingredient in chocolate, which is why the authorities decided not to allow chocolatiers to label their products as nut-free, seeing as a lack of nuts is technically irrelevant.
If you ask us though, the inclusion of allergens (or not) is highly relevant. In fact, we get letters and calls from grateful chocolate lovers who have been lucky enough to discover that our chocolate is completely free from allergens practically every week. (With the exception of our milk and dark milk chocolates, of course, which contain milk and so also lactose.)
Naturally, we think our chocolate is the best there is, but what makes it truly unique the world over is not what’s in it, but what’s not!
