Last week I was invited down to meet the ladies behind this marvelous new chocolate brand COCO JALILA. The artisanal chocolate brand is made exclusively with love for the UAE, and for all those who live or visit here. Without the support of the Khalifa Fund their dream would not have come to light.
The range of COCO JALILA comes with all the love and care of traditional chocolate-making techniques using the finest ingredients: quality chocolate – made with that perfect balance of cocoa, milk and sugar – almonds, hazelnuts and silky smooth gianduja from the renowned nut producing region of Piemonte in Italy, as well as candied orange slices from Sicily and the world’s best ginger from Jamaica.
I was lucky enough to spend some time with Janeen at the COCO JALILA head office and sample some of the tasty treats on offer. Yes, I know…. my job is tough sometimes… and tasting chocolate for ‘work’ is just something I had to do. 😉 Anyway, I met Janeen, one of the ladies at COCO JALILA and we sat and chatted about chocolate, weddings and all of that good stuff. It was all very girlie, and all very yummy. I was impressed with their selection of chocolates, and how the owner spent months and months searching for the best chocolatier in Italy. I felt quite privileged to be tasting a chocolate made especially for the UAE. It’s individual and unique in its own little way, and I can honestly say every single chocolate I ate was delicious. I even took some home too, and I’m not proud to say that they are nearly all gone. #Greedy! He-he!
You may be wondering what this has to do with weddings? Well, it has everything to do with weddings…
- Wedding favors
- Wedding gifts
- Wedding deserts
- Bridal shower favors
Come on, who doesn’t like chocolate at a wedding? I always prefer an edible wedding favor and chocolate is an all round crowd pleaser. Simple and delicious!
If you would like more information on pricing for wedding favors please contact Janeen at COCO JALILA. Oh, and if you’re not into the branded box (see below the very cute little box which fits 2 chocolates perfectly #Yum) you can bring in your own favor bags or boxes and their team will pack your favors for you. Amazing right? And one less job for the bride or planner! ♥
