Flowers and chocolate is a classic combination. Ideal for gifts for so many occasions, so it was an obvious to Chantal Coady OBE, owner and founder of Rococo Chocolates, and Andrew McAlpine, owner and founder of Rockflower, to collaborate by combining their two products and make them available to shoppers at TFL stations.
In a recent Q & A session Chantal said: Chocolate and flowers are an obvious combination, although they have rather different requirements in terms of selling them: flowers need lots of water, chocolate needs climate control and a dry environment, so there are also plenty of challenges trying to sell them together. Andrew has a brilliant mind and way of innovating so that these obstacles are no longer problems, I love the sense of innovation that Rockflower delivers, and the fact that you can buy from them instantly, 24 hours a day, whenever you have a whim to get beautiful flowers or chocolates in fact.
And Andrew commented: 2015 will see Rockflower move into three, if not four, other TFL stations in and around London and with that I am very thrilled to know that we are moving into these new locations with Chantal and Rococo Chocolates, which is such a fine complement because the proof of the matter is that people already like this combination in Blackfriars and I think that when we’re in other high profile areas, we’re going to find that this works even better together.
No doubt we will be seeing more of this natural combination in weeks and month to come. They are perfect together for Valentines, for Mother’s Day and for Easter. In fact it is hard to find an occasion when they are not!
The talented team at Rococo chocolates have come up with the novel idea of putting a message in a sealed envelope inside a hand painted chocolate heart saying MUM.
Now you can not only surprise your Mum with a beautifully decorated and delicious chocolate heart, you can also put a special message inside – (perhaps another mother’s day present: “I will do the washing up for the next week”) Rococo staff will personally hand write the message and fold it using bespoke origami, unless you would prefer to do it yourself. It will be written on a heart shaped note and folded into a sealed envelope.
What you write is up to you!
The hollow heart complete with message will retail at £9.50 and will be available at the Rococo Shops and online until after Mother’s day.
Mother’s Day is March 30. Last orders for online is noon 26 March standard delivery and noon 27 March for expedited.
Go on spoil your MUM, she deserves it!
Rococo Chocolates ‘Cat That Got The Cream’ and ‘Truffle Hound’ boxes are ideal for Mother’s Day. So whether you mum is a cat or a dog lover, you cannot go wrong. And if she is equally fond of both, you could always buy her one of each!
Each box contains 12 ganache chocolates (ganache is the name for the smooth mixture of chocolate and cream traditionally found inside a truffle) and are made with Valrhona single origin chocolates, fresh cream and real fruit purees. Whereas traditional round truffles are double-coated in chocolate, the fine layer of chocolate on these delicate square treats, based on our Principal Chocolatier’s award-winning creations, means that the unusual and sophisticated flavours of the ganache inside each chocolate really shine through.
Milk chocolate ganaches: marc de champagne with popping candy, orange ganache with mango & passion fruit jelly, lemon praline.
Dark chocolate ganaches: Madagascar single origin, rose raspberry & lychee, sour cherry jelly with Madagascar single origin, Jasmine tea, Irish coffee white chocolate ganache in dark chocolate.
Boxes have a retail price of £16.50
A pretty box of Mum’s favourite Rose and Violet creams, is there a better way to treat Mum on Mother’s Day.
The new box, designed of course by Rococo Chocolates’ founder Chantal Coady, comes in two sizes: 160 g which retails at £14.94 and 260g retailing at £24.95. The Rose and Violet Fondant Creams are wrapped in delicious dark chocolate.
And when Mum has finished the chocolates, she has a pretty box for keeping special things in.
Happy Mother’s Day
