about us

The date is a timeless symbol of Arabia - of both wealth and health. It is the fruit of the arid desert that has nourished and sustained the people of the United Arab Emirates, and beyond, since the very dawn of time. This age old and much revered fruit has always been exceptionally popular in the Middle East. But the world is much vaster than our seemingly endless deserts. We’ve learned and studied the craft of European chocolatier masters with patience and dedication, because our mission was to join the traditional values of the East with the skillful mastery and indulgence of the West, to create something that could dazzle chocolate lovers around the world, by creating the perfect marriage of cultures and flavors.

That’s when we came up with Chocodate, the tantalizing bite-sized delicacy combining some of nature’s finest offerings. The date and the almond make up a power pack of flavor and nutrition, and being enrobed in the finest European grade chocolate, elevated the senses to a new and previously unexplored realm of flavor and delight. Created in 1992 by Fawaz Masri, Chocodate is a success story born out of a dream. A dream to create a unique chocolate treat to surprise and delight chocolate lovers around the world, but still speak of his Arabian home and culture. Today, Chocodate’s distinct taste has endured. It has gone from a hidden gem homegrown in Dubai, to one of the most popular and globally recognized specialty treats in the world.

We’re very proud to say that our Chocodates are the tastiest manifestation of our beautifully interconnected world. One bite can transport you, even for just a moment, from the Arabian Desert to the mountains of Switzerland, and back again.

Take a bite, you’ll see what we mean.

  • I must say that "Chocodates" are the most delicious combination of ingredients that i have ever tasted. Dates, almonds and chocolate together, the best! I had the opportunity to taste it when my husband brought some from Dubai. I live in Brazil and i would like to know if you sell them through the internet or abroad. I would love to eat it again.

  • I was introduced to Chocodate by a friend of mine last Ramadan in Cairo, Egypt and I liked them a lot. This year I bought 2 boxes to fill me in on my sweet tooth. Yesterday I took a box to a gathering, there were all sorts of nationalities and religions and the wiped the whole box out! :)

  • A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine. I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect
