In celebration of World Chocolate Day on July 7, we’ve put together a list of 8 incredible chocolatiers from around Scotland.
From our love of a Tunnock’s Teacake to the sweet sensation of an Irn Bru, it’s a well known fact that Scots have a bit of a sweet tooth.
Indeed, we can appreciate a wee sweet treat.
So, in honour of World Chocolate Day today we assembled a list of 8 incredible Scottish chocolatiers so you can try out their delicacies for yourself.
1. ‘Yer Maw Sells Chocolate’ - Glasgow
Looking for a customisable chocolatey gift for a loved one? Look no further than ‘Yer Maw Sells Chocolate’, a family-run, independent business in the heart of Glasgow. They offer exquisitely crafted chocolate bars themed for occasions like Father’s Day e.g., bars saying “yer sum da!” There are also other choices with more “colourful expressions” if you think the recipient has a good sense of humour.

2. ‘Coco Chocolatiers’ - South Queensferry
This chocolatier specialises in Colombian chocolate, and seeks to “challenge industry norms” by beginning the chocolate-making process at its origin before refining the end product in Queensferry. The company boasts an incredibly diverse and stunning range of chocolate-based products to choose from, including the tantalising “Haggis Spice” dark chocolate bar.
