Welcome to Davies
Davies Chocolates was founded by Sidney Davies in 1932. Sidney had a passion for making handmade chocolate from his kitchen in Paddington. In time, he became a master at his craft and developed a loyal customer following. From his efforts, some of Australia’s most delicious fondants, hard centres, jellies and gingers coated with the finest chocolate were conceived. Sidney is no longer with us, but his passion for fine handmade chocolates and the original recipes on which the Davies’ brand was built endure.

Gluten free chocolates
In recent years, many customers began asking us to cater for chocolate lovers who are gluten intolerant … And for a while, we were unfortunately unable to meet that request. We’re happy to say that’s changed! All the handmade chocolates sold on our website are gluten free!
How we made our chocolates gluten free
Traditionally, our handmade chocolate process used flour in dusting (as baker’s do when making bread.) We sprinkled wheat flour to keep the newly formed chocolate centres from sticking to the trays.
Through experimentation, we succeeded in doing away with the flour dusting in our recipes, and thus were able to produce delicious, gluten-free chocolates!
Best of all – the same great chocolate taste we’ve become famous for hasn’t changed! Our hand-made chocolates are still faithful to the original recipe… And they’re delicious!
Handmade without palm oil
Our hand-crafted chocolates are also palm oil free! Davies handmade chocolates are made with cocoa powder and cocoa butter, they are NOT MADE with vegetable fat or oil.
All of our chocolate is real chocolate! A few years ago, Davies (like many chocolatiers) was using compound chocolate which contains palm oil. Compound chocolate is popular with chocolate makers as it has a higher melting point and is easier to work with. Unfortunately, it also has some serious environmental consequences which we were keen to address.
Moving on from palm oil
To avoid using palm oil, meant working only with real chocolate. This was tricky if we were to maintain our ability to efficiently produce our handmade chocolates. We also needed to retain the expected (or better) quality. We experimented a lot with our recipes to get the balance right and retain the classic Davies chocolate taste our customers love.
By successfully replacing palm oil, we dramatically reduced our environmental impact and, and happily, improved the quality of our product to boot!
