We are starting off the new season with 21 new, hand-scooped chocolates with a bit of a subdued, classic character as opposed to the usual madness. There are many new nougat chocolates, which are also vegan, and we have created a few completely novel gift chocolates.
There are new and rare cocoa varieties and countries of origin to be found among the Labookos and for the first time ever, some of our cocoa beans have been delivered via sailboat, completely eliminating environmentally harmful emissions.
In the meantime, Julia Zotter spent 3 more weeks in Peru in order to visit our cocoa farmers as well as our social action project “Chocolate for School”. We have formed very close relationships with our cocoa farmers and are creating cocoa blends, single origin chocolates from one region and even a single village chocolate with beans sourced just from one small village.
The Nashidos are experiencing a relaunch – seductive, wafer-thin and tender-melting in classic flavours like red wine, Marc de Champagne, grappa, peppermint… and a brand-new design.

Raspberry and Coconut, the fruity, new, vegan chocolate
Labookos now feature a short flavour profile on the back of the wrapper, like “an elegant berry aroma with notes of caramel, caramelised citrus and nuts” and more extensive taster notes on the inside for those interested in flavours and chocolate character, who would like to get to know their chocolate in a bit more detail.
