We frequently make small batches of our products to ensure they arrive as fresh as possible, which quite often means we make our products to order. We strive to process, produce and ship all orders within 2 – 4 days or less of receiving them. Processing times may be longer during peak times (Holidays).
We will send you a confirmation email once your order has been shipped.

Pure Lovin’ Chocolate is a family owned and operated company, located in beautiful Victoria BC, Canada. We focus on producing top quality confections, made from only the best organic, local and natural ingredients. We do not use any artificial flavourings or colours and we produce a full line of Vegan, Soy Free and Gluten Free products. We strive to make our products as pure and simple, as well as delicious and decadent, as possible.
What about allergies?Leah2023-05-10T23:24:31-07:00
Although we strive to keep all of our products pure and free of allergens, there are some circumstances beyond our control that can cause our products to contain trace amounts of certain allergens.
PEANUTS and TREE NUTS: We do use peanuts, hazelnuts, almonds, pecans and cashews in some of our products, which means that all of our products have the possibility to contain peanuts and tree nuts, even if it is not an intended ingredient.
DAIRY: We do not add dairy to any of our products.
The 71% dark chocolate that we use is made without the addition of dairy, but is manufactured in a facility that also produces milk chocolate. The chance of cross-contamination is extremely slim, but for safety and legality reasons, we must say that there may be a chance that our dark chocolate products contain traces of dairy, even though dairy is never an intended ingredient.
Our vegan white and vegan milk chocolate are made in house, and are completely dairy free, with no chance of cross contamination.
SOY: Our chocolates do not contain any soy lecithin. Soy is not added in any other way to our products, so our products are completely soy free.
GLUTEN: Our gluten free products are prepared in a controlled environment that eliminates any exposure to gluten. We have tested our products to ensure that they are gluten free, as required by the laws of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.
SESAME: Some of our products may contain traces of sesame and sesame seeds even though sesame is never an intended ingredient.
Organic farming uses no chemical pesticides, fertilizers, or GMOs, and is designed to encourage soil and water conservation and reduce pollution. Organic cacao farming is especially important, as only cotton crops use more pesticides worldwide then conventional (non-organic) cacao farming. Also, cacao is most often grown in tropical rain forest regions; growing organically helps preserve these environments and the animals and vegetation that live within them.
All of our products are Vegan, which means they’re made without animal ingredients (no eggs, dairy, butter or honey, or any other products derived from animals), and with non-bone char processed sugars.
