Coco Chocolatier - Chocolate Delight

Coco Chocolatier - Chocolate Delight

Imagine a bad day, when nothing is going your way. Imagine your train is late, and it is of course raining. It is Monday, your boss is less than understanding and your payday is next century.

Then you come back from lunch to find a thoughtful friend has unexpectedly left a small box of chocolates on your desk. Your payday is still a century away, but in that moment of discovering the gift, you feel treasured and loved. There is something terribly endearing about receiving chocolates – in fact, many unlicensed medical practitioners believe it to be the best recipe for instant happiness, short of an orgasm.

This is the sort of feeling we are aiming for with our gifts and hampers. There are many tiny details which have to be just right to create it – chocolate orgasm is a fleeting thing, and a teeny tiny whit off may spoil the whole thing. Apart from the flavour of the chocolate itself, the presentation has to be just right. Tesco's finest just won't cut it, no matter how fine it may really be – you are aiming for that luxury, exclusive feel.

This is why we have chosen to work with Coco Chocolatier. They are an artisan chocolatier based in quirky, artsy Edinburgh. They offer unusual chocolate flavours (gin & tonic dark chocolate, anyone? Drinking chocolate with lemongrass?) presented in beautiful wrapping. They are also quite happy to work with you to create custom chocolate flavours tailored to your liking. Your intended recipient wouldn't just be getting a bog-standard box of chocolates – you could surprise them with a completely unexpected flavour! Coco Chocolatier are unapologetically innovative and daring, and we are hoping to create many unforgettable experiences with their help.

Port - the exquisite history behind this superb drink
Port - the exquisite history behind this superb drink

Port is a truly fantastic alcoholic beverage, and hugely popular around the world. But how many of us know the true history behind this delicious drink? Here’s all you need to know about how port came to be…

Early origins in Portugal

When the Romans first arrived in Portugal, they promptly set about growing vineyards which produced wine-ready grapes. This process continued for over five hundred years on the banks of the Douro River, where it all began so long ago. Port later became a major export for the Portuguese from 1143 onwards, but it wasn’t until much later that ‘Port’ as we now recognise it began to take shape. The first wines carrying this name didn’t leave Portuguese shores until the 17th century, but the route to this process was a long time in the making.

About The Harrogate Candle Company

The Harrogate Candle Company was founded by Fiona Carr and Deborah Wilson in 2012.

Adopting this naturally-led approach, Harrogate Candle Company initially developed a range of candles in five signature fragrances, designed to inspire emotion: Happy, Inspire, Lovely, Divine and Dream.
