Chococo was included in the Weekend Telegraph's Food & Drink feature on Nov 22nd on the best artisan food suppliers for Christmas. They describe us as such:

"The Dorset-based confectioner packages its chocolates in cheery pastel-coloured boxes. They range from fresh truffles amdew ith local creatm to slabs studded with nut and fruits, and chocolate biscuit cakes, including one shaped like a Christmas tree, which will be a huge hit with children. There are also dear little boxes of chocolate in the shape of fish, chips and peas - a nod to Swanage, the home of Chococo - and colourful chocolate lollies."

 

The Christmas tree biscuit cake they are referring to is our gorgeous limited edition Purbeck Marble Cake tree, weighing in at 1kg- buy soon, before we run out of the capacity to make these very special cakes!

Discover our limited edition Chococo hot chocolate of the month for October....fresh ginger & chilli infusion.

Made by infusing chopped fresh ginger root & chilli into hot milk before sieving the spices out, re-warming and blending the milk with flakes of our new 70% origin pure dark chocolate from Chocolaterie Robert in Madagascar.

This hot chocolate takes a little longer than our other hot chocolate to prepare, but we all think that the wait is worth it...now we just need more consistently cold weather for you to enjoy it in! 

All our hot chocolates are available at both Chococo Swanage & Chococo Winchester. Maps to find each store are on the shops page and both our stores are open 7 days a week, year round.

This exciting new flavour is the winning chocolate from our customer competition held back in June to create a chocolate with local Hampshire flavour(s). This one was suggested by Deborah Hicks who is thrilled that we worked up her suggestion into a fabulous chocolate!
