Dear all,
Claire & Andy here to say a huge thankyou to you all for the wonderful support you have shown us over these past very difficult weeks.

Our team at Chococo HQ in Wareham have worked their socks off these past weeks - we are a small team anyway but it got even smaller when we lost key chocolatier...

Co-founder Claire here with an update - Andy + I were back in our chocolate kitchen making eggs until late last night and will be doing the same again today to try to keep up with Easter demand.

So please bear with us - we are doing wha...

Hot Chocolate, a poem by customer Atlas Eden

Posted By Sabena Preece on 09/03/2020 11:52
