Prestat - Very Regal Chocolates

Prestat - Very Regal Chocolates

Prestat were founded all the way back in 1902 in London, and have been hand-crafting all their chocolates for over a century now. Talk about tradition! It would have certainly been a little anti-climactic if they hadn't taken away a thing or two about making chocolate from all those years of experience.

 As things stand, they have been awarded two royal warrants as purveyors of chocolate to Queen Elizabeth II and Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, and are one of the most well-known chocolate makers in the UK. In fact, The Economist has nominated the royalty-approved chocolatier as one of the world's top three chocolate shops in 2003.

Throughout their long history, Prestat have had many noteworthy customers, including the actress Sarah Bernhardt, Princess Diana and Stephen Fry. It is said they were the inspiration behind Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Dahl has even immortalised their name in another novel of his, My Uncle Oswald. Aimed at adults, the novel relates the adventures of a seductress who inserts aphrodisiac into Prestat truffles she presents to the rich geniuses she intends to seduce.

While we certainly hope Prestat chocolates have never be used towards such sinister purposes in real life – it is sacrilege to use the power of chocolate for evil – there is definitely something evocative about the idea of a seductress resorting to chocolate as a weapon of choice.

Prestat products are so well-known and loved, they can be used for almost any purpose. But their magic is perhaps best applied on Christmas day, when a sleepy child opens a neatly wrapped box to find pure pleasure, lovingly captured and neatly packaged, bursting to be released back into the wild.
