Not all that came from lockdown was gloom and doom, it also gave individuals time and with that grew ideas and inspired some amazing startups to be born such as Chocolate Dino Company. Online-based Chocolate Dino Company are a 5-star quality bakery, supplying home deliveries of artisan brownies and New-York style cookies that are both appealing to the eye and most definitely the mouth. Surprisingly, the amazing duo behind the brand did not start off as bakers, both from the hospitality industry together they learned how to bake and it seems they had a natural flair. Beginning as a kind gestured pick-me-up that was sent to their friends across the globe, the dream has since expanded to putting huge smiles on many more faces and the response has been very rewarding. Once you have tried one of their velvety brownies you will be a fan for life.
Handmade using premium Belgian Chocolate and baked to perfection, the gooeyness you expect from a normal brownie has been excelled and personally decorated with your favourite treats. Now let’s get down to the taste, the small independent bakery turns into a giant when it comes to creating luscious flavours. So long plain chocolate brownies welcome these innovative and imaginative homemade creations. Our personal favourite is the Biscoff Blondie but they also have quirky ones such as Drunk Marmalade and Fetch-a-Biscuit. Even their ‘classic’ brownies are quadrupled in chocolatey-ness and covered in funky patterns, tasting just like a meteor in your mouth.
Just in time for Christmas comes even more exciting flavours with a festive twist. Their Christmas Gift Box includes seasonal tastes such as triple choc brownie with brandy-soaked fruits and decorated with Lindt truffle, YUM! and if you didn't know by now The LG are obsessed with Orange flavoured Chocolate just like the rest of the UK, so you’ll be pleased to hear it also includes their amazing Terry’s Chocolate Orange chunky choc brownie.

You can currently find them based at Brick Lane Market which is taking place outdoors on Saturdays and Sunday throughout lockdown and beyond.
