If you've ever bought our chocolate before you might have seen this on the back the packaging:
If rom-coms have taught us anything, it’s that chocolate fixes everything. So when two pilots have their worlds turned upside down, what’s their next move? Start making (and eating) chocolate, obviously. We might be lost, but you’ve found our chocolate, so things are looking up.
That's the short version of the story. The longer version isn't actually that much longer:
As we all know, 2020 was a rubbish year for pretty much everyone. For two airline pilots like us though, it was a really rubbish year. With plenty of time on our hands, we found that sitting around watching bad news unfold daily was a bit of a downer; so we started making chocolate instead.
Initially we gave our chocolate away and people seemed to like it. So we made more, and before we knew it people loved it so much they started to pay us money for it. Two Lost Pilots chocolate was born.
Our chocolate is made by us from bean to bar. We start by sourcing high quality cacao beans from small scale farmers around the world, making sure the farmers are paid and treated fairly. We roast the beans, crush and de-husk them, then combine them with raw Australian cane sugar and grind it all together for 3 days to make silky smooth delicious chocolate. This isn’t nana’s block of old gold.
