Alison Campbell

My name is Yvonne.
I am a chocoholic.

 

Are you inordinately fond of chocolate?  
YES! I loooooove high quality raw vegan chocolate... It is part of my daily ritual... it makes me feel happy, calm, nurtured and loved... you can almost always bribe me with chocolate. As long as it is organic, vegan, raw, and sustainable.  

Chocolate. Incentive or reward? Or both?  
Definitely both. I love to nurture my being with chocolate...it must be the magnesium and antioxidants, right? 

When did you know you were a chocoholic?
From the moment I was born! lol. Honestly, while all my friends wanted cheap ice creams and lollies, I was already grabbing for the expensive chocolate and ice cream. And the more I delve into chocolate the more I love true hand-made chocolate.

White, milk or dark?
Now only ever dark. Vegan. 
Sugar free, organic and sustainable. 

Describe your favourite chocolate in three words.... 
Silky, smooth, love.

 

Tell us about your most memorable chocolate experience?
I'll have to share two. 
Firstly, a chocolate fountain on our Valentine's wedding day. Oh my goodness...dunking fresh strawberries, raspberries and all the summer fruits in the world into running pouring chocolate...it was literally heaven on a stick. Maybe I was high from our day too? 
And secondly, being in the Caribbean and having the opportunity to taste organic chocolate straight from the pod. The sweet white slippery fruity delight encasing the bitter cacao nib within just like nature intended.. totally balanced. It was a very special moment.. and I so wish I could have brought a big pod back to Australia with me. 

Where is your favourite place to indulge your choc-habit?
Anywhere, anytime.
After Kundalini yoga there is nothing more special then a raw chocolate with Christmas spirit, or freshest peppermint oil in it. 
Or in the Love Byron Bay Crêperie and Chocolate Boutique for an indulgence and chat with Alison, Aaron or the other friendly staff! 

Secretly solo or shared indulgence?
When I am out I always share. And I am forever giving Chow Cacao as gifts to my Oil Tribe all over the globe. 
Even to strangers when I am in Love Byron Bay Crêperie and Chocolate Boutique. 
At home.. at night about 11pm... totally solo! Totally happy. Totally satiated. 

Top choice-choc destination?
I thought it was France. 
But after going there last year... I was a little disappointed. Too much sugar and dairy for me.
So, now... anywhere with special friends or loved ones. 

Favourite product in the Love Byron Bay chocolate range?

Kokopod Almond Rocher

Tell us about your most memorable chocolate experience?
As a teenager I decided to try to rid myself of my chocolate habit by eating nothing but chocolate for a week in the hope of becoming so sick of it that I wouldn’t want to eat it again.  I managed a week of chocolate exclusively but, unfortunately, only 3 weeks of abstinence after!

Where is your favourite place to indulge your choc-habit?
No particular favourite place as I always carry chocolate with me
and constantly drip feed throughout the day.

Secretly solo or shared indulgence?
I prefer solo so that I don’t have to share
– sharing with others means I have to exercise portion control.

It would have to be Love Byron Bay chocolate of course!
