Sue and Holly are the lovely owners, chocolatiers and makers of dreams of Coco Chocolate Boutique. You can watch them at work in their chocolate kitchen as they are a small artisan business who make their own chocolates on the premises.
They are friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming. I am obviously a regular customer but then that shows how good their chocolate is. I have tried vegan chocolate where ever I can find it but I have never found any to match the taste, quality or choice that they have here.
I have bought gifts for family and friends, vegans, vegetarians and non-veggies alike and everyone always wants to know where it came from because they want more supplies. It is so reasonably priced as well. The packaging is all free and is of a very high standard. A particular favourite to give as a gift is their chocolate pizzas. The base is the chocolate type of your choice (dark makes the toppings look even better) and then the toppings can be broken honeycomb, marshmallows, fruit, nuts, other chocolates, fried jelly eggs (for Easter), sweet Christmas trees etc...all is this is cellophaned and placed in a rigid card pizza style takeaway box. It wonderful and comes in well under a tenner.
I am currently munching through a dark chocolate egg that has honeycomb inside and bursting out of the front of the egg. It came cellophaned with a big bag of dark-chocolate dipped honeycomb. That was all for Â£5.95.
They only use pure and natural ingredients, sourcing local producers where possible. To their wonderful chocolate they add fillings made from fresh cream, nuts alcohol and fruits, no additives or preservatives.
They also produce a pure water ganache range of dairy free chocolates. By removing the cream and butter the true character of the chocolate is revealed.
They sell Dairy free, gluten free and vegan chocolates. Luxury handmade chocolates. Bars, buttons and slabs. Chocolate shoe collection. Chocolate Brownies, chocolate chip cookies and chocolate cup cakes. Pure hot chocolate shots, chocolate ice creams and chocolate for fountains and cooking.
They previously ran an eating establishment that also specialised in chocolate so they are a font for recipes and ideas.
They undertake private commissions and orders, wedding favours and a corporate gift service. Nothing is too much trouble for them.
If you need a gift, love chocolate or just want to see craft people at work a visit to Coco's is a must....see you there.
