    We are thrilled to have been featured on ITV's This Morning with Phil & Holly on a segment about the Perfect Teachers Gift.

  4. Spread the word of mental health with Choc on Choc

    Spread the word of mental health with Choc on Choc

    Here at Choc on Choc, we love a good cause just as much as we love chocolate. And now we’ve joined up with card retailer Funky Pigeon to combine the two.

    Funky Pigeon have launched their Believe in Happy campaign in support of mental health awareness week, to encourage people to open up about their mental health and tackle stigma. And to support such a brilliant campaign, we’ve designed some delicious chocolates to help spread the word.

    The campaign is being spearheaded by the Funky Pigeon’s graphic designer Amy, who received a supportive card from her Grandma while she had post-natal depression and realised we send way more “Get Well” cards for physical illnesses than mental illnesses.

    Inspired by this, Funky Pigeon are launching a product range full of

Our all-weather ‘ices’ were everywhere in the blogger-sphere, not to mention in quite a few high-profile publications, too.

    We knew our chocolate cocktails lollies (or ‘choctails) were going to be a big hit, but we weren’t prepared for just how popular they were! Our chocolate mojitos and Pina Coladas appeared in the Metro and Fabulous magazine; on the OK magazine Twitter feed; and in independent blogs,

    June: The Month of Chocolate and Cheese

    Though we’re well into July, we think it’s time to take a look back at all the many places our chocolate treats appeared in the press back in June. And there was one product that we just couldn’t keep on the shelves…

    Of course, the middle of June was Father’s Day here in the UK, and it seems as though this year’s papas are real foodies, with our chocolate cheeseboard becoming the star of the show. Not only did we see our after-dinner extravaganza appear in Sloan! Magazine, but it was also features in a whole host of videos, including ones by

  10. Love Chocolate? You Might Just Be More Intelligent Than Most!

    Love Chocolate? You Might Just Be More Intelligent Than Most!

    We’ve spoken before about the many, many health benefits that have been associated with eating the occasional bar of dark chocolate, but did you know that a craving for chocolate could actually prove that you’re very intelligent?

    Flavanols (a form of flavonoids) in the cocoa have been linked to this boost in cognitive performance. Apart from being found in your favourite dark chocolate, you can also find flavonoids in tea, red wine, grapes, apples, and certain other fruits.

    But, being a chocolate connoisseur, you probably knew that anyway, right?
