Having jetted around the world exploring exotic flavours last year, and with all the World Events, Rococo Chocolates has decided to celebrate what is close to home and is staying in the UK for 2017 and finding exciting local specialities, distinct flavours and seasonal ingredients – all the goodness the regions have to offer. The Spring Collection takes us to the North and Wales. The beauty of Wales brings gifts from nature with Pembrokeshire Sea Salt and a delicate Rosewater: the only one from welsh-grown roses. For the North, Karen Waller, head chocolatier and her team worked their magic on local classics, with Liquorice, Rhubarb, and a Bakewell Pudding. The selection is both beautiful and delicious.
A dark, smoky caramel, with Halen Môn oak-smoked sea salt, decorated with spirulina to look like the crashing waves of the Welsh coast.
A traditional, soft fondant, flavoured with a hint of delicate ‘Petals of the Valley’ Rosa Damascena rosewater, distilled in copper stills in the Monmouthshire valleys.
Paying tribute to Yorkshire, the chocolatiers combined the Liquorice of Pontefract Cake nostalgia with Rhubarb, in homage to the home of the Rhubarb Triangle.
Dark, Cherry jelly and Amaretto-laced marzipan come together to form a delicious, chocolate version of the Derbyshire classic.”
The Spring collection is available in Rococo stores and online anyday now, in 12 and 4 choc boxes £17.95 and £6.50 and loose in store too at £14.20 per 100g.
