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.”
