Kendra Leighton, Rawr chocolate, type 1 diabetes

LIVINGLIVING

Having started up the chocolate

business, Leighton is also a published

author, having written Glimpse, a 'ghostly

romance', which was published in 2014.

It was inspired by Alfred Noyes' poem

The Highwayman ('When she inherits the

infamous Highwayman Inn, Liz hopes

the move will be a fresh start.'). Aimed

at the young adult market, the novel is

'something I did on the side' when not

running the chocolate company. Leighton

says, "I wrote the book for young adult or

teenage market as I'm a fan of that age

group and the fiction aimed at it, which

is actually read by just as many adults. I

hope to do a follow-up soon."

Brief

encounter

We interviewed Kendra Leighton in the previous issue, who

not only wears an insulin pump 'pod', but it transpired that

she also makes a living working with cocoa pods, producing

chocolate bars.

D

escribed on her

website as a

'voracious reader and

chocolatier,' Kendra

Leighton is multitalented. With

her partner she set up

and runs Rawr Choc. "We started by

selling our handmade chocolate bars on

a market stall in Cambridge, then shops

started to approach us to stock it, and

now we run our own factory. We wanted

to focus on organic raw chocolate,

which is to say that it has had minimal

processing. Most of us are aware that

raw vegetables contain more enzymes

and vitamins than boiled ones. The same

is true of all foods, including chocolate,

but modern mass-processing techniques

leads to a chocolate that is very distant

from its cacao origins."

Rawr chocolate has a naturally low

glycaemic index. It's dairy-free, has no

added refined cane or beet sugar, no

artificial ingredients, no hydrogenated or

chemical preservatives, emulsifiers, or

colourings.
