Some talented bakers from the Northeast have taken an initiative to make your Valentine’s Day week sweeter and more chocolatey.
Some homemade bakers have started making chocolates with special ingredients like dark and white chocolate to make their products extra sweet and make your February the finest and fabulous with their own uniqueness.
While there are many chocolate makers, both big and small, in the region, we have listed three of our favourites. These are all small-scale operations, so you can be assured that every thing they make is made with love, care and there are no middlemen munching away the profits.
Sanjeevani Goswami from Guwahati, Assam has started Chocolate Mood selling various flavoured chocolate such as dark chocolate, white chocolate, milk chocolate with praline. Her chocolates are filled with nutty goodness and rich sweet temptations dressed up in beautiful wraps. She also sells special vegan chocolates for vegetarian people and sugar free chocolates so that people conscious of weight gain or diabetes can fill their cravings too.

Hill Wild are delicious, unique chocolates founded by Leiyolan Vashum and Zeinorin Stephen from Manipur to bring different flavours to life with healthy ingredients.
The hill chilli is a combination of the sweetness of cocoa with a pinch of pungent spicy chilli. They make a variety of chocolates with locally-harvested nuts, sesame and perilla seeds, plums, wild apples, pumpkin seeds, king chillies and even black rice, a highly-nutritious delicacy of the Northeast.
