Jens Knoop has had a strong relationship with chocolate since his childhood in rural Germany. In 2013, he decided to share his passion and opened the first Knoops chocolate bar in Rye, East Sussex. They have now opened in London, at Kensington High Street and Clapham Junction with other locations coming soon. Knoops also has an online retail store.
Knoops offers expertly crafted chocolate drinks and coffee, to drink in or create at home.
Knoops say that drinking chocolate brings joy, and not just for nostalgic reasons or as a welcome treat – it has health benefits too. Theobromine is a naturally occurring ingredient in cocoa that has been found to enhance mood and lower heart rate. Chocolate drinks made with dairy milk could also enhance recovery and rehydration during and after exercise, due to milks easily absorbed nutrient profile.
