What is Awfully Chocolate?

Awfully Chocolate is a Singaporean-based chocolate company specialising in producing and selling premium chocolate products. It was founded in 1998 by Lyn Lee, who started selling only one cake flavour, the "Original All Chocolate Cake," which quickly gained popularity. Since then, Awfully Chocolate has expanded its offerings to include a variety of other chocolate-based desserts and confections.
