Choc ‘N’ Chill, the newest and most irresistible flavour from the Oppo Brothers is here and launches this month (18th July) – National Ice Cream Month, and just in time for National CBD day on the 8th August. This time they’ve partnered up with Love Hemp to create a deliciously rich Colombian chocolate ice cream, made from the finest, ethically sourced fino de aroma cocoa mass. Launching in the first week of July, this mouth-watering ice cream is enriched with natural CBD oil to re-balance mind and body, and help you squeeze every drop out of every day. Summer is almost here and it’s time to forget the doom and gloom and join the millions that grab life by the leaf!
Love Hemp, was founded in 2015 by two London based entrepreneurs and has become one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of high quality, premium CBD products, ranging from oils to edibles and cosmetics.

The brand is proud to operate in a regulated way in an unregulated market.
Ice cream gives everyone a little lift, and with the sun shining and temperatures rising, Oppo is here to deliver the most indulgent flavours, without compromising on taste and with up to 60% less calories and sugar than regular ice cream. The first major ice cream brand in the UK to launch a nationwide ice cream delivery service, Oppo customers can get hold of exclusive flavours, not available in the shops, including its newest addition – arriving in perfect frozen condition. Furthermore, 10% of online profits go to the NHS, meaning #GoodTemptation has never felt better!
About Oppo Brothers
Brothers Charlie and Harry Thuillier conceived the idea for ice cream that makes you feel-good (indulgence at no expense to health) in Brazil in 2011 whilst breaking the world record for the longest distance travelled by kite. It took 2.5 years to create their first recipe.
Entrepreneurs Charlie and Harry Thuillier pitched their idea on Dragons’ Den, asking for a £60,000 investment for a 7% share of the business. Despite failing to secure the investment, the brothers went on to quickly raise over £1.1m in funding through the Seedrs platform, of which investors have now sold for significant profit. In 2016 tennis champion Andy Murray tried Oppo and loved it so much he invested in the ice cream dream, helping to introduce Oppo to over 140k people. Since then they have become the only lower calorie ice cream brand to win Great Taste Awards, and refuse to compromise on health or taste. Charlie and Harry believe that their success is down to Oppo’s focus on quality of product and premium, natural ingredients, plus an understanding that consumers are unwilling to compromise on taste.
The Oppo Ethos
Oppo believes in #GoodTemptation, doing right by people as well as the environment. Oppo sources their milk locally, from cows that are free to roam naturally, and where circular farming methods are used to control waste and secrete it into a local forest to reduce C02 impact. For every sustainably-managed tree cut down for the packaging, Oppo plants five more, and their packaging plant runs on green energy. Removing the gold foil from Oppo packaging means that it is easier to recycle, and reduces the energy used in producing it. Cocoa farmers are paid above the market rate, and profits are invested into the local community to build schools and other infrastructure.
