Rococo Chocolate and Jigsaw Dressing Up Christmas Bars

 

In a collaboration with Jigsaw, the contemporary British fashion brand started in 1972, Rococo Chocolates, founded by Chantal Coady OBE in 1983, has developed three special, festive flavours for Christmas 2017. They are absolutely perfect for giving as a gift or enjoying with family and friends during the festive season. This is a limited edition.  Don’t miss-out – when they are gone… they are gone!

Jigsaw approached Rococo because they loved Chantal’s designs and a number of her designs have been used on accessories for their Christmas 2017 collection. Do look out for them. Some will also be available on the Rococo website.

 

Zest, Spice and Cinnamon Eve:

Tones of Cinnamon and nutmeg punctuated by pops of orange. This is what Christmas tastes like. A milk chocolate bar with a minimum 40% cocoa solids.

Cardamom & Crackle:

A crisp combination of crackling rice and cardamom in a smooth white chocolate. Like freshly fallen snow in a bar. White chocolate contains minimum 30% cocoa solids.

Boxing Day Beets:

Sweet beetroot enveloped in a coat of dark chocolate. An antioxidant – there is no guilt in this pleasure.  Dark chocolate contains a minimum of 65% cocoa solids.

 

The bars are available in 70g bars retailing at £5.00 or in mini bee bars retailing at £1.60.  Available at all Rococo shops and online from 16 October as well as in selected Jigsaw shops.

The Rococo Easter Chick Has Hatched Just in Time for Easter

The very talented chocolatier team at Rococo, headed by Karen Waller, have come up with some cracking ideas for Easter Eggs this year… A limited edition of bespoke eggs:  this one is named ‘Don’t put all your eggs in one Basket’, it’s part of a range including ‘Chicken in a Basket” and ‘Hippie Chick’. There will be only 5 of each design made, so expect a bit of “Smash & Grab” raid when they arrive in store.

The egg itself, made from 39% organic milk chocolate, with smaller eggs of delicious caramelised white chocolate, and the little chick is marzipan.

Wonder what the other eggs will look like, eggciting…Watch this space!

The bespoke eggs retail at £40.00 and can be bought at the 4 Rococo London shops: Motcomb Street, Kings Road, Moxon Street and Earlham Street. A different egg for each shop.

Hurry, they won’t sit around for long.

Happy Easter from Rococo Chocolates.

As part of the Roald Dahl 100 festivities, Rococo Chocolates has created this special range of Artisan bars celebrating  the genius of the world’s No.1 storyteller. Inspired by Roald Dahl’s incredible tales, each bar is Rococo’s flavourful take on key tastes from the books. We hope you enjoy Rococo’s “strange and scrumptious” creations.

Chantal Coady OBE, founder, owner and creative director of Rococo chocolates, has been a lifelong fan of Roald Dahl ever since she was given the book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by her father, who brought it back from New York in the ‘60s, when it was first published, and has had an formative influence on her life in chocolate ever since. Taste for yourselves!

ABOUT ROALD DAHL AND HIS LEGACY:

Roald Dahl was a spy, ace fighter-pilot, chocolate historian and medical inventor. He was also the author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, The BFG and many more brilliant stories. He remains the World’s No.1 storyteller. Born in Cardiff of Norwegian descent, Roald Dahl (1916–1990) joined the RAF at the age of 23 and began writing, initially for adults, after being injured in a plane crash during WW2. Sitting in a hut at the bottom of his garden, surrounded by odd bits and pieces such as a suitcase (used as a footrest), his own hipbone (which he’d had replaced) and a heavy ball of metal foil (made from years’ worth of chocolate wrappers), he went on to write some of the world’s best-loved children’s stories. His first children’s story, James and the Giant Peach, was published in 1961, was a hit and every subsequent book became a bestseller. Today, his stories are available in 58 languages and, by a conservative estimate, he has sold more than 200 million books. Many of these stories have also been adapted for stage and screen, including the 1971 film classic Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Wes Anderson’s acclaimed Fantastic Mr Fox, and the multi-award winning Matilda The Musical from the RSC with music by Tim Minchin. The most recent Roald Dahl story to hit the big screen is Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of The BFG, released in July 2016. 2016 marks Roald Dahl’s centenary. Entitled Roald Dahl 100, 2016 marks 100 years since the birth of Roald Dahl – the world’s number one storyteller. There will be celebrations for Roald Dahl 100 throughout 2016, delivering a year packed with gloriumptious treats and surprises for everyone. Roald Dahl said, “If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.”

Chantal Coady OBE, founder & Creative Director of Rococo Chocolate announces the launch of the Roald Dahl Collection.

Roly 045   Crocodile egg 006Coady is delighted to be working with the Dahl family on some very exciting new projects; the first of which are being launched this Easter. After “almost 50 years in gestation” The Crocodile Egg and the Roly-Poly Egg are hatching. Coady explains “Roald Dahl has always been a great inspiration to me, my dad brought the book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory back from New York in the ‘60s when it was first published, and it’s been a formative influence on my life in chocolate ever since. This is an amazing project for Rococo to be working on and we are so pleased to have the exclusive license to produce chocolates for the Enormous Crocodile and so many of Dahl’s children’s titles. Later in the year we will produce the first Dahl chocolate bar library, featuring The BFG, The Twits, The Witches and James and the Giant Peach”

 

THE ENORMOUS CROCODILE EGG

We promise that no children were gobbled in the making of this egg, much to the greedy croc’s chagrin…

Open up the beautiful green foiled crocodile pattern milk chocolate shell and you will find six salt water baby green crocodiles* trying to escape/hatch. The 140g egg retails at £14.50 or you can buy two for £25.00

 

THE ROLY–POLY BIRD CHOCOLATE EGG

While trying to find a child to eat, the Enormous Crocodile has a go at the Roly-Poly bird. Happily she manages to escape with her life, but loses her tail feathers. She loves berries to eat, but can’t quite decide if she prefers strawberries or raspberries. The Roald Dahl ‘Roly-Poly Bird Egg’ from Rococo Chocolates gives you the best of both worlds – the choice of strawberries with milk chocolate in one half of the egg and raspberries with white chocolate and fizzing popping candy in the other. The white half of the shell is covered with the pink foil and the milk half with blue. The 150g egg is filled with delicious multi-coloured foiled milk chocolate eggs – and you don’t even have to go hunting for them! The ‘Roly-Poly Bird Egg’ retails at £14.50 or you can get two for £25.00.

Lovely presents to surprise and delight literary kids and their parents.

Less is more…

Happy Easter!

*The baby crocs are milk chocolate and have a pinch of Anglesey sea salt!!
