Sweet Success!

This week’s been a hectic catch-up week. I’ve managed to get production back on track by working through the weekend and into the evenings. Dad’s still very poorly, but hanging in there, so we’ve just got to wait and see for the time being.

We received some very exciting news on Saturday morning, which was that our Pina Colada has won a Bronze award in the filled white chocolate category of this year’s Academy of Chocolate awards. That, of course, demanded some celebratory bubbles and big grins all around. I quite like being an Award Winning Chocolatier!

This coming week we’re getting ready for the Mersea Food & Drink festival, which is always a lovely event with live music and entertainment as well as the food marquees, so let’s hope for good weather.

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
