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.

Smoked black tea
Or how about trying one of these unusual pairings:

Aside from the constant threat of wasp stings, sandy sandwiches, and sweat patches, one of the biggest challenges of summer is keeping your chocolate from melting.
Sure, melted chocolate is basically the closest thing most of us can get to liquid gold. But sometimes it’s nice to keep our chocolate intact. So how do we do it when everything around us is melting? Here are a few well-tried methods, so you can enjoy your chocolate intact and as it was intended.
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.

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
