Top of the chocs

Sweet success beckons for Newcastle-based artisan chocolate maker Wajeeha Husain after she made it to the final of BBC TV’s Top of the Shop with Tom Kerridge.

Wajeeha, who completed a degree in Computer Science and worked for Nissan in Sunderland before setting up Chocolateeha, wowed with her range of handmade chocolate, which includes healthy raw bars, vegan choices and indulgent flavour combinations made from scratch using single-origin cacao nibs from Peru, Madagascar and West Africa.

Wajeeha, who says she’s thrilled to get to the final and has taken on feedback from the judges in developing her recipes, sells her bars online, at festivals and events.
