chocolateSecret Norfolk: Life in a Fine County

By Nicole Ranaweera

The month of March brings to mind Spring, Mother’s Day and means that Easter (and a nice long weekend) is now only just around the corner. In my mind, this can only really mean one thing…chocolate! Renowned for their chocolately goodness, this is my list of Top 5 Norfolk Chocolatiers. A perfect read for the chocoholic in your life!


  1. Booja Booja (

Diary, gluten and soya free, Booja Booja chocolates are made using simple organic ingredients. Whilst based in Norfolk, their range of chocolate truffles and dairy-free ice-cream, are sold in independent health food stores, farm shops and delis nationwide, along with Waitrose, Holland and Barrett and Ocado. In the words of Mister Booja Booja himself: “Everyone needs a little booja-booja now and then…”


  1. Digbys Fine Chocolates (

Digby’s has shops in the Royal Arcade in Norwich, Cromer and Alysham. Offering a fabulous range of tantalising delights from the very upmarket Belgian and English chocolates to the superb liquorice treats from Finland and Holland plus everything delicious in between.

  1. Gnaw Chocolate (

Handcrafted chocolate from Norwich, Gnawfolk, is mixed up with natural flavours, chewy chunks, sugary caramels, sweetshop treats, and exotic spices. Apparently there was a big hole in many-a-Norfolk-chocoholic’s tummy waiting to be filled by these deliciously different Gnaw flavours. Gnaw chocolates are available all around the UK and in 20 faraway countries!
