Five reasons why a chocolate subscription is the perfect gift

Fünf Gründe, warum ein Schokoladen-Abo das pefekte Geschenk ist

Christmas is almost upon us again, which means that the great consumption frenzy can begin. In addition to the numerous public holidays such as Mother's Day, Father's Day, Valentine's Day and of course the birthday of our loved ones, Christmas has now become a pure material battle for many. But the fact that the madness of unrestrained consumption is no longer justifiable given the climate crisis and dwindling resources is no longer news for most. Are you also looking for a gift that is sustainable and creative and from which the recipient will benefit for a long time? Then our new Theyo subscription might be just the right thing for you! In this blog post you will learn everything you need to know about our subscription and five reasons why our chocolate and the subscription option is the perfect gift for all occasions!

The first and most obvious reason: Fine, fair and new chocolate straight to your home every month

The first reason is certainly the most obvious. With our chocolate subscription you get three months of the finest chocolate enjoyment!
Each subscription box contains five different, fair and sustainably produced chocolates. The chocolates are put through their paces by our Theyo team, or bean and pod, according to both quality and sustainability criteria. The contents of the boxes come from different manufacturers. They have all specialized in fine chocolate made from rare cocoa varieties. So if you want to give away quality and fair chocolate, you can save yourself the search and simply pass this task on to us.

Chocolate, the content of our gift subscription
The chocolates that are sent to you with the subscription boxes – you can be absolutely sure of that – contain only selected ingredients. The manufacturers of the chocolate refrain from adding unnecessary additives. Because these can mask the natural chocolate taste. In general, the rule of thumb is that the fewer ingredients a list contains, the higher the quality of the chocolate.
In addition, the recipients are sensitized to the topic of sustainable and fair cocoa cultivation in a nice and unobtrusive way. This also ideally leads to the next point, because:

Reason two: Our subscription boxes are good for your ecological conscience!

Unfortunately, we have to go a little further for this argument:

The negative effects of conventional cocoa cultivation

The cacao plant naturally only grows in the strip 20 degrees south and north of the equator. So you can say she has her claims. The demand for chocolate and products containing cocoa is increasing every year. This is why, for decades, a few types of cocoa have mainly been grown in monocultures for conventional supermarket chocolate. However, such monocultures are incredibly bad for the respective ecosystem, because the biodiversity in the cultivation areas decreases massively. Attempts are also constantly being made to expand the area under cultivation, which means that the rainforest is being cut down more and more. In addition, the cultivation of industrial cocoa, which takes place mainly in West Africa, is often associated with child labour .
Unfortunately, the reality is that buying conventional chocolate indirectly encourages deforestation and child labor. At the price that chocolate is offered in the supermarket, it is simply impossible to produce high-quality chocolate to fair standards. In this blog post you will learn why good chocolate comes at a price .

Bean to Bar: the solution to the problem

With the Theyo subscription as a gift, you can be sure that you will only receive sustainable chocolate from fair cocoa cultivation. All chocolates in our range are made according to the bean-to-bar principle. This means that the chocolate manufacturers accompany the entire production process. From the bean to the finished bar, they try to do everything themselves and thus ensure the greatest possible transparency. This principle is ultimately the only way to produce truly fair chocolate.
We also try to make the subscription option as sustainable as possible. We ship climate-neutrally and rely on sustainable packaging materials. The first box is sent in our classic cardboard box and, in addition to the chocolates, contains information material such as our booklet. Subsequent deliveries are then limited to the essentials - the chocolates, of course - and come in grass paper packaging. This is 100% recyclable and can simply be disposed of with waste paper. The new chocolates can then directly take the place of the chocolates in the first box, which ideally have already been eaten away. :)

Reason three: Our gift subscription turns you into chocolate connoisseurs

In addition to the tasting tips, the chocolates in the box also contain information about their origin and the manufacturer. In addition to the great taste experience, our subscription also offers the opportunity to learn more about the process of chocolate production, to find out more about the producers and thus to establish a connection to the individual chocolates. There is a high risk that chocolate subscribers will become real chocolate nerds!

Reason 4: Our chocolate subscription will bring you joy for three months!

Are you looking for a way to make the recipient happy for a longer period of time? With the Theyo subscription box you can be sure that your gift will be remembered for at least three months.
Because: the term of the subscription is three months. We think this is the perfect time to get a first glimpse into the world of fair chocolate! For 80 euros, subscribers receive a box full of fair and fine chocolate, pairing tips and discount codes for our online shop every month for 3 months.
Are three months too long as a gift for you? Of course, there is always the option of sending a single chocolate box as a gift. Feel free to visit our online shop .

Reason 5: The gift subscription is ideal for tasting the chocolate together!

Ultimately, the most beautiful gifts are always those that are associated with time together - and from which you can benefit a little yourself. Our gift subscription can be wonderfully combined with an invitation that is certainly not altruistic. Suggest that the recipient taste the chocolate together one evening or afternoon. In addition to delicious chocolate, you also give time together and even have something from your sustainable gift. You can read here how you can ideally design your own chocolate tasting.

Even if a subscription is of course a great gift, it should be pointed out at this point that it is of course also a great way to treat yourself to a monthly supply of sustainable and fine chocolate. :)
