Tucked away in St Thomas Place in Ely, family-run chocolate company Harry Specters combines unique chocolate flavours with a dedication to empowering young autistic people, championing social impact by providing employment and development opportunities. It’s an award-winning chocolatier that’s not afraid to push boundaries, experimenting with tantalising flavour combinations to craft incredibly tasty confections. Believing that great products should have a great cause, Harry Specters has been supporting young people with autism since 2011, creating an environment for them to thrive. Through personal experience with their son Ash, founders Shaz and Mona have worked together to offer fun and inspiring careers, with space to develop a range of skills to maximise personal and professional development. The company has already supported more than 500 young autistic people so far – and is excited to see that number grow in the future.
Aside from its admirable social efforts, the Cambridgeshire-based company’s chocolate selection is truly impressive. From bars to boxes, and even a monthly Chocolate Club subscription in which you can try out all the latest creative confections, Harry Specters has an indulgent chocolatey treat in store for all. The milk sea salt caramel and dark orange bars are fan favourites, but if you’re not sure where to start, get your hands on one of the ‘A Bit of Everything’ boxes, which feature new and exciting flavours such as rose and cardamom, salted lime caramel, and maple and pecan.
