The weather continues to get hotter and it’s not helping production!! Our small aircon unit is just about keeping things manageable. I’ve said before I hate to bemoan the warm weather, but …..

We had a walk in inspection from Environmental Health this week. Technically they have to make an appointment with a home-based business, but my only gripe with that was having to stop production for 10 minutes!!

This weekend was the Essex Food and Drink Festival at Cressing Temple, which wasn’t the best weekend we’ve had there, to say the least. The combination of fabulous weather and some sort of football thing happening meant that the crowds didn’t turn up in as much force as usual. It was nice to have a couple of days out, though.

Choctails® was founded by husband and wife team Simon and Hilary Delamare. Simon's suggestion of putting cocktail flavours into chocolate took Hilary's chocolate-making hobby to new heights, until in May 2012, the decision was made to turn the hobby into a full time business. The domestic kitchen became a production factory by day, and the dining room was given up to become a place where hand-made chocolate is crafted
