Special Hamper for Fathers’ Day

Guinness and Chocolate in a marshmallow – a brilliant mix from Karen Waller, chief chocolatier at Rococo Chocolates and her team for Father’s Day and to make his day even more special they have produced a new salty caramel cigar. Lucky Dad.

And the chocolate fairies at Rococo decided to pack them in a very special hamper together with a Rococo mug for Dad’s breakfast tea and we all know how good Dads are at helping with the washing up so we have included his very own tea-towel! Now there is no excuse. But as it is Fathers’ Day give him a hand.

The hamper retails at £40




The marshmallow evokes a classic Chocolate Guinness Cake, with a firm, moreish texture.  Bag retails at £6.00





The Salted Caramel Cigar is a solid chocolate cigar, made from a unique blend of chocolates, and tiny shards of salted caramel, with crispy biscuit and rice. Cigar retails at £ 9.95



All are available at Rococo Shops and online from 25 May.

Ahoy Dry Dishes Ahead

lushdesignsshipteatowelhighresGetting you dishes dry will be plain sailing with this new nautical tea-towel from Lush Designs. The design features an array of ships and boats, beautifully and humorously depicted on an ocean of pale blue.

Maria explained the inspiration behind the design: ” In September the river in Greenwich will be bustling with craft for the Tall Ships festival. In tribute we’ve designed a special tea towel, which features the ships, the docks and a couple of aquatic monsters lurking just below the surface. Tall ship, small boats, we love them all.  Aboard HMS Lush Designs we’re celebrating all things nautical and the maritime heritage of our Thames side Location.”

The pure cotton tea towel measures 74cm x 46cm and retails at £11.00, and will be in available online and in stores from end July.
