I may not know London very well but given that I always follow my belly, it came as little surprise that I managed to sniff out what is said to be Britain's top chocolatier during a quick trip. With fair trade chocolates, bonbons, eggs, marshmallows, caramels and a variety of other award-winning sweets presented in novelty packaging and over-sized jars, the kid-in-a-candy-story feeling washed over me immediately. As did indecision - how could I possibly choose just one treat to taste and one treat to take home?
I went with a mixed tasting selection of multi-origin dark chocolate at the recommendation of one of the chocolate experts on staff and a Madagascar Vanilla marshmallow for an on-site sweet fix. With so much more to sample, Rococo has been moved to the top of my to-do list for my next trip across the channel!
