For my birthday she presented me with a goody bag full of treats including chocs by two brands I've not tried before. The Chocolate Cafe are fairly local, based in Ramsbottom, near Bury. There is a shop and cafe and they even organise an annual chocolate festival in the town. They sell the Zotter range of chocolate which looks like it's got some interesting vegan options. Bird's eye chilli or goji berries in sesame nougat anyone! The goody bag contained dark chocolate covered lemon sticks from the shop which were delicious and very moreish!
Artisan Du Chocolat are in London. Jo got me a bar made with almond milk. Mmm, very creamy, full of almond flavour and it has cute squirrels on the packaging. They've got some intruiging looking bars. I fancy trying the bars flavoured with espresso, tobacco and darjeeling tea next. I can feel a chocolate tasting evening coming on in the near future!
