FAQs – Chocolinho


What is a Brigadeiro/Brigabom?
Brigadeiros are Brazil's favourite chocolate treat, handmade fresh using the finest Belgian chocolate and hand-rolled in a selection of nuts and various other delights. Each sumptuous bite is a hit of intense chocolate with a firm but yielding texture. They are Brazil's best-kept secret and unlike anything you have ever had before.
Brigaboms are our own creation and is very similar to a Brigadeiro but is coated with a cracking shell made from Belgian Dark Chocolate with no-added-sugar.

How soon will my order arrive?
We make all of our Brigadeiros and Brigaboms to order to ensure that they are fresh as possible when you receive them.  Please allow between 2 and 5 days to make and send each order.

How long does the actual shipping take?
For local delivery we aim to deliver as soon as the order is ready.  For postal orders we use royal mail 24 hours tracked which usually takes 1 business day to get there.

Can I choose a specific delivery date (e.g. for a birthday gift)?
Of course! Please drop us a note when you place your order and we will aim to deliver as close to the date as we can (or just before).

How much does shipping cost?
We have a flat fee for all orders under £35 of £4.50.  This is to cover most of the cost of using Royal Main Tracked 24 service which is the safest way to ensure your product arrives safely and quickly.  All orders above £35 qualify for free shipping using the same service.  All local deliveries over £10 are free also.

Are your Brigadeiros/Brigaboms really no-added-sugar/vegan etc?
Yes!  We use our own homemade nut milk which is simply desiccated coconut, crushed almond and cashews mixed with water and the chocolate we use is Callebaut Belgian Dark Chocolate with no-added-sugar. The sweetness comes from natural sweeteners called 'polyols' (we primarily use erythritol but the chocolate itself contains a small amount of maltitol). The only other ingredients are natural flavourings such as fruits and nuts.

Okay, but what about gluten-free?
There is no gluten in the recipe however for people with severe allergies, it's important to note that all of our products are prepared in a kitchen that also handles all of the common allergens.

Do you cater for events (parties/weddings etc)?
