Craft beer - Cans Vs. Bottles

June 19, 2021

However, blind taste tests have shown time and time again that there's no consistent difference between the flavours of bottled and canned beer.

Why do people love chocolate?

Why do people love chocolate?

June 11, 2021

Chocolate is made from the beans of the tropical cacao tree. Most of these trees are grown in Western Africa where the tropical climate is perfect for cacao beans to flourish. But why is chocolate so addictively delicious? The answer may be more complex than you realise.

We at the Hamper Lounge have hand picked a wide range of gifts including some exquisitely delicious chocolate hamper selections.

The chemistry of chocolate actually plays a huge part in why it is so well-loved and delicious. There are a few hundred chemicals within your typical bar but the most important ones are theobromine, anandamide and caffeine. Theobromine and caffeine are stimulants and, although they only appear in miniscule amounts, it’s enough to give chocolate that addictive feel which means you can never just have one square! Feeling chocolatey yet? Try our scrumptious ‘I Love Chocolate Mini Box’ to get your chocolate fix or send to a chocolate-obsessed friend today.
