HAPPi ’s continued development to its portfolio with new accolades


Targeting flexitarians looking for a delicious, rich and indulgent hot chocolate, Oat M!lk chocolate brand, HAPPi has now launched its new Hot Chocolate Spoons.

Perfect for the upcoming cold snap, the new Hot Chocolate Spoons are available in two delicious flavours: Plain M!lk and Salted Caramel and can be stirred into any warmed coconut, oat, soya or other milk alternatives, to create a creamy, chocolatey and warming winter drink that everyone can enjoy.

“We know how hard it is for those following a plant-based diet to find delicious and indulgent hot chocolate options and some people don’t always like the same milk alternatives,” explained Gavin Cox, Founder of HAPPi.

“We’ve developed these hot chocolate spoons to put the choice back into customers’ hands as they decide what type of plant-based milk they use for their hot chocolate.”

HAPPi’s Hot Chocolate Spoons are produced using oat m!lk and sustainably-sourced 47% Cacao, which is made with Single Origin Colombian Cacao from Luker Chocolate. They also contain no added soya and are gluten free.

HAPPi’s Oat Mi!k Chocolate Bars pick up four top awards

Launched earlier this year as a delicious, vegan alternative to milk chocolate, HAPPi picked up four coveted gold awards for all four of its main flavours: Plain M!lk, Orange, Salted Caramel and Cacao Nibs Crunch and was the only oat milk chocolate brand in the competition.

“This is a fantastic achievement for HAPPi, which we only launched at the start of 2021,” says Gavin Cox. “When it comes to creating plant-based alternatives, taste is the absolute most important thing so to pick up these awards for flavour alone is a huge pat on the back for the whole team.”

“The flexitarian chocolate market is becoming increasingly competitive so awards like these will really help us stand out from the crowd,” added Gavin.

The Great Taste Awards is the world’s largest and most trusted food and drink awards, with a panel of expert judges that include chefs, buyers, food writers and retailers. All products are blind tasted and marked accordingly, meaning that the awards are also a positive way to receive honest, impartial feedback on products from the best figures in the food and drink industry.

During vigorous taste testing, the judges described HAPPi as “A very well made chocolate bar. The texture was creamy and velvety, and the cacao content was well balanced with the sweetness,” adding, “The flavour profile is excellent: the chocolate is rich with fruity dark notes with the well judged salted caramel bringing a very well judged further dimension to this tasty, indulgent chocolate bar.”
