Everyone who remembers his or her own education remembers teachers, not methods and techniques. The teacher is the heart of the educational system.
Every single day in classrooms across the world, thousands of motivated teachers work long hours educating their students, marking homework, preparing lesson plans, leasing with families and co-workers overcoming any obstacles they may face. The work that teachers put in is essential for not only children, but their future, the parents and the community in general. Nevertheless, the rarity of thanks that teachers receive is concerning. That’s why here at Choc on Choc, we wanted to change that so, we’ve designed a line of thank you gifts for our wonderful teachers.
Teachers are often role models, friends and sometimes saviours for our children! Teachers inspire students to have a lifetime thirst for knowledge, they share their values and compassion, demonstrate hard work and the importance of commitment. These are priceles
As teenage tennis sensation Cori Gauff otherwise known as ‘Coco’ continues to stun the audiences of the world and as a company predominantly operated by female’s we thought that here at Choc on Choc we would focus on some of the important roles and achievements that female tennis players have had throughout the history of Wimbledon.
So, where’s better to start than the beginning, the opening of the prestigious tournament known as Wimbledon started in 1877, however this only included men’s singles tournaments. It wasn’t until 1884 (a whopping 7 whole years later) that ladies’ singles were included into the tournament and then it took another 29 years for the tournament to include ladies’ doubles and mixed doubles in 1913!
Once the ladies did get the chance to compete in 1884, the first ever winner of ladies’ singles was Maud Edith Eleanor, at the very young age of 19. Her win came only 3 years into her career of competitive tennis! Impressive!
For her tremendo

Chocolate is our number one love and there are a number of reasons why chocolate is so popular. One of those reasons is the fact that chocolate is such a versatile product and can be paired with a range of different textures and flavours. From savoury to sweet, there are so many different ways that chocolate can be enhanced. Milk chocolate is sweeter than other and is therefore more suitable for use with other sweet flavours such as caramel, honey or butterscotch.
It can also work well with the following:
Smoked black tea

Ignore everything you’ve ever been told and do eat straight from the fridge
There’s a certain stigma attached to standing in front of an open fridge and picking food from it. We blame romcoms. But sometimes, you need to do the unthinkable in order to enjoy your chocolate. We’re talking fridge door wide open, unashamed, eating straight from the fridge as you stare into its abyss.

We are a nation obsessed. A new survey has revealed how much chocolate we Brits get through, and the results have made us beam with pride.
The average Brit gets through an impressive 1.5 tonnes of chocolate in their lives, which is worth more than £12,000, according to a new study by savings site VoucherCodes.
According to their survey of 2,000 UK adults, we tuck into 7,004 bars over our lifetime, including 1,642 dark, 1,425 white and 3,934 milk chocolate, as well as 104 Easter Eggs, 668 slices of chocolate cake, 8,719 chocolate biscuits and cookies, and 3,000 mugs of hot chocolate.
It’s no wonder, then, that four in 10 Brits admit to being a chocoholic. But we’re also a generous bunch; nine in 10 said they’re willing to share a box of chocolates. That said, we’re also a sneaky bunc
