D&D Chocolates Limited
D & D Chocolates is a family run business, based out of Nuneaton, they produce Carob and Dairy Free Chocolate.
D & D Chocolates was started in the late 1980's by Michelle Berridale-Johnson, the well known author of allergy cook books and the founder of the Foods Matter magazine, now an extensive family of websites.
FoodsMatteris an extensive resource for the medical profession as well as those with a personal interest in allergic conditions.
The Inside Story is the allergy care magazine for the medical profession as well as those with a personal interest in allergic conditions.
As the demands of editing and publishing such an essential magazine took over, Michelle reluctantly was forced to relinquish her interest in and D & D Chocolates. The business was acquired by Barbara Burgess, whose son, like Michelle’s, also suffers from a dairy allergy. The two businesses remain in close contact which is beneficial for both the D&D customers and Inside Story readers.
