The alternative blog for cruelty free skincare, veggie food and alt/geek culture

St Kitts Herbery was founded in 2001 by Susan and Paul Johnson at a cafe in Cornwall. The luxury skin care brand has since expanded and now includes chocolates handmade by their chocolatier in Cornwall, with a second store in Cardiff, Wales.


These chocolates tasted as wonderful as they look. Yes, past tense, they didn’t last that long. I never thought basil would work in chocolate but it did. Not overwhelming, not sweet or savoury, just perfectly balanced. My favourites were Lemon, a creamy white chocolate (the best white chocolate I’ve ever tasted) with a sharp but sweet flavour, Cinnamon milk chocolate with a very spicy kick, vanilla a deliciously sweet milk chocolate which reminded me of traditional ice cream and the rose dark chocolate which had a beautiful subtle rose flavour. The designs of the chocolates are so original with little envelope shapes and even Aztec prints.


Unfortunately for a luxury box of chocolates the label had been cut incorrectly, missing off several letters on the left side but the allergen information and descriptions were still understandable.


As you can see, the sleek black packaging of the products look sophisticated and are also easily recycled. This rosemary and bergamot hand wash (£11.95 for 200ml) is incredibly thick so it will last a long time and it moisturises my hands well. The product has a strong menthol-like scent which I’m not too keen on but my Dad really liked it, so it’s found a good home.

    I reviewed some hand wash and body lotion early last year. Lovely products and those Chocs look delicious.

      There seems to be a lot of luxe hand wash on the market over the last few years, which my hands are very glad about! I tried the chocs with my Mum and Dad – a third each – which was funny as we have very different tastes :oD

    I’ve never heard of this brand before, but I love the sleek packaging. I imagine I’d love the lemon and rose dark chocolates! It’s a shame about the label but it still looks yummy x

      They tasted so gorgeous. The spiced ones had a real kick to them! Very sophisticated packaging for all of their products.

    Ahh, wow, basil chocolate! I’m not normally a fan of luxury chocolate but I do love a good lemon-flavoured chocolate. The handwash bottle looks very oriented towards men so I’m not surprised your father is a fan! Thanks for sharing this brand! I’ve never heard of it before! 🙂

    I’d appreciate it if you could pop by my blog, if time allows
