    Will There Be A Doughnut Wall At Your Wedding?

    Originating in America, the trend has been picked up by brides and grooms across the world, and in some cases, is even replacing the traditional wedding cake. Many cite it as a more inclusive option than a wedding cake, plus the more interactive selection of your very own doughnut seems to appeal to a lot of guests.

    How Long Can You Resist a Chocolate Bar For?

     

     

    We’re betting it’s not 80 years…

    A coronation souvenir bar (more than a little past it’s sell by date) made to celebrate the coronation of King George Sixth is up for auction in South Derbyshire.  Talking about their unusual lot the auction house said "We handle rare and unusual items on a daily basis but are still often surprised by objects brought to us. Who would have thought that no-one would give in to the temptation to eat the chocolate? It may be well past its sell-by date now but we are certain there will be an appetite for this in the saleroom!".  Amazingly the chocolate (still wrapped in its original foil) seems to have fared well – we can’t say any chocolate has ever hung around the Chocolate House long enough to try this out, but at 80 years old it

  8. The End of an Era!

    The End of an Era!

      

    Many of us know well the familiar wrappers and shapes of a box of Cadbury’s Roses, whether they be carefully placed on a coffee table or liberally strewn across the floor after a Christmas gathering.  The satisfying twist of both ends of the wrapper have become somewhat of a trademark since Cadbury’s introduced their first box of Roses in 1938.  However, they have said this week that these will be replaced with the more modern tear away wrapper much to the upset of chocolate traditionalists everywhere. 

    Cadbury’s claim this is to help the chocolates retain their flavour as well as to avoid cross contamination, apparently their most common complaint in 2014.  Two of their most recognisable chocolates will also be reshaped to allow the chocola
