When thinking of a cool, hipster chocolate brand, the name Shabar Chocolate rushes to our minds. Yes, our purchases from them has a lot to do with their artsy packaging, but the chocolate bars inside crafted from Thai cacao are the true treasures.

For a chocolate bar packed with surprises, Xoconat should be your move. The brand focuses on sa mall-batch, bean-to-bar process with a touch of mind-stirring flavours. This is evidenced in their Kaeng Khiao Wan and Phed Nit Noi bars studded with fiery chilli flakes and herbs.

Pridi’s mission is to make chocolate right where its beans are grown, so it’s about as local as it gets. Using only Thai ingredients, and made from all-raw ingredients in their own factory, the relatively new Thai chocolate brand is already getting much attention. We particularly like their fun take on popular chocolate favourites. Pictured here, the Pridi Maprownty, a playful take on the classic Bounty bar, but made with fresh, local ingredients.

For a memorable bean to bar experience, opt for Siamaya Chocolate. The brand highlights 100% natural and locally-sourced cocoa beans mixed with tongue-tingling flavours – think, Dark Chocolate + Thai Coconut Curry, Milk Chocolate + Durian, Thai Tea, and more. Conveniently, you can also find goodies from Siamaya Chocolate at ICONCRAFT within ICONSIAM.

For plant-based diners, Aimmika Chocolate offers up vegan bars that are not only healthy but also delicious and decadent using only two ingredients of Thai organic cocoa beans and organic brown sugar. If your loved ones are weight watchers, we recommend going for the 90% bar or even the unsweetened kind, which contains only a single component of organic cocoa beans.
