Here at Choc on Choc, we love a good cause just as much as we love chocolate. And now we’ve joined up with card retailer Funky Pigeon to combine the two.
Funky Pigeon have launched their Believe in Happy campaign in support of mental health awareness week, to encourage people to open up about their mental health and tackle stigma. And to support such a brilliant campaign, we’ve designed some delicious chocolates to help spread the word.

Inspired by this, Funky Pigeon are launching a product range full of messages
