It’s March 2019, and GD’s has moved into a shop with the chocolate team doing all the Decadence production behind the scenes. Great new treats and delicious Hot Chocolate – just the thing to warm you on the cold rainy months. Come and visit! Shop 6 The Village Square, Southfield Road, Plumstead.
Gayleen’s Decadence began in 2009 when I lost my restaurant and started working in the then very young ‘healthy foods industry’.
In creating many delicious treats I had to also come up with a chocolate to fit into this category So after some serious ‘playing’ in my kitchen, I developed my first soft centred chocolate which immediately became popular and was the beginning of my range of soft centres.
The range has grown to incorporate solid slabs and spreads and they are distributed Nationwide.
(I was told you could not produce chocolate with RAW HONEY …. I did!!! …. and MANY have followed since!)
I am by far your NO.1 fan !!!!!! I make sure my cupboards are always stocked full of your choices! Ever since the first day that I tried your chocolates, I have had one every single day!!!!!!! Thank you so much for your incredibly divine creations and the all love that you make them with… they are truly too amazing for words…and I can most definitely taste the love you put into them!!!
I thank God for you and your chocies every single day!!! I am so excited to see what new flavours you will be bringing out in the future. I would like to know if I can order them online? Especially now that I am going overseas. I will buy in large amounts. I wish you all the love and success in the world!!!
I was in a café in illovo yesterday and a box of your chocolates caught my eye. I got a closer look and properly read the sign. I thought it was too good to be true. Being on the paleo diet can be challenging if you’re a chocolate lover as I am. I bought the Mocha-Chocolate and bit into heaven. It was creamy, rich and decadent; how a chocolate should taste and it’s all natural! Thank you for creating ‘Gayleen’s Decadence’, they as truly delicious! I shall definitely buy more!
Just wanted to drop you a note to say that my colleague and I are loving your chocolates. We’ve shared them around too and it’s fair to say you have a few more fans. They truly are delicious!
Hi there. Met you yesterday at Wellness and bought the mint and ginger! So awesome! Polished off all 4. And bought same again at Biscuit Mill Market this morning. Truly yum! All gone too … oooooops! Well done for producing such a lekker product 🙂
Your choccies are divine 😉 I am having issues getting wellness warehouse in Wembley Square to stock them though! Maybe a good thing or I would be eating too many…
Thanks for all the yummy healthy goodness!

Today I discovered your decadence range at Die Boord in Stellenbosch. I just wanted to say thank you for this. I am a paleo eater (of two months) since I discovered I can’t eat carbs. Its so comforting to know that there are people out there catering to people like myself. Thanks so much, keep up the good work
Hi there Gayleen
I am SO impressed by your amazing chocolate. It is so rare to find sugar free chocolate that also contains NO harmful sweeteners or additives! Your chocolate is creamy, sweet, and delicious! It ticks all the boxes for me. It is healthy and AMAZING!!!
I tasted it for the first time at a padstal in the drakensburg. I wish I had bought more to take home with me.
I am based in Johannesburg and would like to know where I can buy some of your slabs!
Thanks so much!
