The 2016 Summer Collection from Rococo Chocolates carry you off to exciting places; you can almost feel the sun and smell the fruit in these delicious ganaches. The inspiration for these flavours reflects all four continents exploring and incorporating local delicacies of the season.
Lychee & Thai Lime (Thailand, Asia)
This is an unusual combination of Thai lime zest and Madagascan dark ganache, with fruity lychee undertones.
Piña Colada (Australia, Australasia)
Coconuts and pineapples both fruit during the summer months, so Rococo whipped them up into a refreshing Piña Colada jelly with coconut cubes.
Huckleberry Pie (Montana, North America)
Ripe blueberries make delicious pies. Here’s the Rococo version – fruity blueberry jelly and ganache, topped with a sable disc.
Honey & Sea Salt Caramel (Wales, Europe)
Pembrokshire’s summer bees collect nectar from wild blackberries and coastal gorse. This luscious caramel balances Coedcanlas honey and Halen Mon sea salt in a milk chocolate dome. This chocolate won a Gold Medal at the recent Academy of Chocolate awards…
The ganaches are available loose in all Rococo shops now, £135/kg. Boxes of 4 choc (£6.95) and 12 choc (£17.50) will be available in store and online from 1st July.
Choosing a gift for dad, papa, father or grandad on Father’s Day can be a bit of a headache. Rococo Chocolates could possibly have about the best father’s day present you will find this year.
It looks like a cigar; it is packaged like a cigar. Close, but its no cigar – at least not a real one. Rococo Chocolates have launched two special cigars, one dark chocolate and one milk and unlike proper cigars these chocolate ones are good for you!
Smoky Cuban Havana: Solid Dark Chocolate – Cuban dark chocolate, with natural tobacco notes, flavoured with Halen Mon smoked sea salt and lapsang souchong tea with crisp rice puffs, and rolled in cocoa powder.
Smoky Papua New Guinea: Solid Milk Chocolate – Papua New Guinea milk chocolate, with naturally smoky notes, flavoured with Halen Mon smoked sea salt and lapsang souchong tea with crisp rice puffs, and rolled in cocoa powder. Don’t let Your Father’s Day go up in Smoke
The cigars weighs 30g and retails at £9.95
Available from Rococo shops and online from June 10th

Child Safety Week is run by Child Accident Prevention Trust to raise awareness of the risks of child accidents and how they can be prevented. It is a very good idea to be reminded of this – it should be Child Safety Week every week, we think!
And as we all know most accidents happen in the home. Basic household items, including window coverings, can turn into potential hazards. Luxaflex® considers child safety a top priority. As children grow so does their curiosity with the world around them, making products safer for homes with infants and young children is an integral part of their design philosophy.
If you are planning any window treatments and have small children Luxaflex® has produced a very useful brochure which can be downloaded.
