Attended by some of the UK’s finest Chocolatiers and some top quality International brands this is a chocoholics paradise.  Visitors got to attend talks, demonstrations and interactive workshops.  Those lucky enough to attend the gala event (invite only) witnessed the World Famous Chocolate Fashion show!  All dresses were inspired by chocolate and created by chocolatiers and fashion designers attending the event.

Armed with my trusty camera I managed to squeeze in as close as possible to bring you all these:

I bought a number of bars from the Divine stall (I won’t say how many).  Although I had seen this particular brand around quite a bit I hadn’t realised how good their chocolate quality and selection actually was.

Maison Boissier had a range of floral themed chocolates and fruity sweet that tasted simply delicious.

I couldn’t help but gaze longingly at the Chocolate creations on the Hotel Chocolat stall but already heavily laden down with chocolate by the time I had found them I would have needed an assistant to carry my bags had I bought anything else.

Chocolate shoes anyone?

Pralus had some amazing chocolate bars and of course I had to buy a selection.  Their Pistachio one was truly exceptional, you can’t help but go nuts over their various nut flavoured chocolates, the quality was fantastic and the queue at this stall was enormous.

Choco Passion had the cutest little chocolate figures which were selling fast.  A croud had also formed to view their chocolate tools some of which looked almost real.

This is an event that really shouldn’t be missed by anyone with a sweet tooth.  Keep an eye out guys and make sure you visit next year!
