Chantal Coady, who started Rococo Chocolates in 1983, has designed new Artisan Bar wrappers to commemorate Rococo Chocolates’ 4th decade.  There are 16 different flavours and 16 different designs.

 “I was inspired by a casual glance onto our celebrated tiled Marococo garden in the Motcomb St store”. They just called out to me: “Here is the answer to the kaleidoscope of flavours in the Artisan

Bars, all looking the same in the Rococo blue and white wrappers!” explains Chantal.  “The garden has many of the plants which are used as flavours in the bars: rose, jasmine, geranium, mint and lavender. The tiles come from Michael Davenport at Dar Interiors, I just love the designs, which are traditional and modern at the same time.”

These bars are still made with Chantal’s own special recipe, however Rococo now use more of their own organic beans from their Grococo plantation in Grenada in order to create an intense, fruity and authentic backdrop – the perfect foil for the different flavour notes in each bar. Chantal continues: “These smells and tastes evoke childhood memories of the brilliant blue skies in my birthplace Teheran, and windy walks on Cornish beaches. To name a few you can try: Basil & Persian Lime, Sea Salt, Cardamom, Orange & Geranium,Chilli, as well as classics like Mint and Ginger”.

Each flavour has been individually matched with a tile just as each bar has its own personality which speaks to the taster, creating a unique chocolate experience. “I hope you enjoy these bars as much as I have enjoyed my immersion in the wonderful world of chocolate for the past four decades!” she finishes.

 The Artisan bars come at present in 16 flavours and retail at £4.25
