Simply chocolate is truly simple.

An old city, with a new chocolate

Simply Chocolate is based in Copenhagen. Up here it’s too cold to grow cocoa beans. But it´s hot enough to have a love affair with great chocolate. Copenhagen is a very old city with a highly vibrating pulse and plenty of room to nurture a new kind of chocolate. Since we began in 2011, a lot of people have shared our desire. Not just for what we do, but apparently also for how we do it. We appreciate that.

And how do we do it? Well, we just add a bit of new to the traditional, and there you have the best of both. New Nordic urban gourmet chocolate in a beautiful marriage with old production traditions for handmade goodies. In a historic setting even.

This is as good as it gets!

The best from nature, we just take the credit

Well, we’re named Simply Chocolate, so it’s not that complicated. We create chocolate that tastes good. We wanted to make a product that not only your mouth but also your body would love and therefore we are very picky when it comes to our ingredients. We don’t use laquer, artificial colourings or additives in our chocolate. Life is too short for that. On the other hand, we didn’t want to make boring, plain chocolate.

With that in mind and in order to become the most modern, cool and tasty chocolate brand in Scandinavia (now in Europe) we are continuously working to develop and discover any opportunity for great taste within the headline of only natural ingredients.

We use quite a lot of time learning about our ingredients and how they were born and grown. We believe you can taste the love and care we and our suppliers put into the ingredients. Chocolate is for many a guilty pleasure but with no artificials we think Simply Chocolate is a little-less-guilty pleasure.

Back-to-basics, with a twist of humour

At Simply Chocolate, we believe that true chocolate love takes a hint of something new and a twist of humour. We enjoy making fun events and using statements that put smiles on people´s faces.

However, the basics will never be compromised. The quality and the taste of the chocolates must be of absolute superiority, and the ingredients all natural. Always. To underpin that, all of our chocolates are hand-made by our experienced chocolatiers.

Humour and genuine craftsmanship in one. It´s state of the art.

We know who are the happiest employees in the world.

Chocolate crush: Grainy Billy. Grainy Billy is like no other chocolate bar I have ever tasted. The center of coconut swirled in white chocolate is just so smooth and creamy. Perfect balanced with the rich chocolate and cranberries makes me think of an all-time classic ice cream from my child hood.
