Last week I went to the annual London chocolate show. An exhibition dedicated to chocolate. It’s a chocoholic dream.
As a child, I would daydream about entering Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory, a place where pure imagination comes alive. Who wouldn’t want to live in chocolate heaven with Oompa Loompas and a chocolate waterfall?
Even now as a grown-up, I’m still looking for that golden ticket. If anyone finds it, please return it to me.
So it fair to say, I basically would love to live somewhere there is a land of chocolate. Just pure chocolate and nothing else.
Well, I got close to that dream last Friday, when I went to the London chocolate show. Now I don’t need to tell you what this show/exhibition is about. It really was a chocoholic dream.
Now for those who know me, will know that I am the biggest chocoholic ever. In the history of mankind. Ok maybe not that last part, but in all seriousness, I am a chocoholic.
As in, if eating chocolate was an Olympic sport I would win gold. Yeah, that how bad (or mad) I am with chocolate.
Yes, I devour chocolate like there no tomorrow. I have it as a milkshake, for my breakfast and also some time as midnight feast. There is not a single day where I do not have a single piece of chocolate. There is also not a single day when I do not have a craving for it and when I do have a craving, what do I do? Well, I have some chocolate to satisfied my craving.
I buy it when I’m out shopping to past the time, I ask my husband to pick up a bar of chocolate on his way home and in winter I drink nothing but hot chocolate. I once had spa treatment where it was a full body chocolate wrap massage just so I can have some chocolate. Yes, I’m obsessed and a little crazy!
Having said all that, it shouldn’t be a surprise that I went to this year London chocolate show. This exhibition showcased that chocolate really does come in all shapes and sizes.
There was chocolate art, sculpture, shoes and even a full-length dresses. Yes, all made from chocolate. How amazing is that?
You could drink the chocolate from some very tasty chocolate liquors, or sample some tasty flavours. And if you want to send someone a special gift, you could get a personalized chocolate plate.
Stepping into the London chocolate show did feel like Willy Wonka chocolate factory. However, a very downsized factory with no fountain of chocolate.
The show itself wasn’t that big. It wasn’t an all-day thing where you can mooch around and samples pieces. I got the feeling where you sampled the chocolates, if you’re not buying – the exhibitor wasn’t interested. You are moved along.
While I was there I sampled the nicest fudge ever, it was chocolate fudge and oh my god it was delicious. Seriously the nicest fudge ever. So if you want delicious fudge, I highly recommend Yum Yum Fudge. I kept going back to their stall to sample, but I eventually bought some as it is crazy not to.
I feel I have done too much talking, so I will show you the pictures I took where there. If you can, try to attend next year London chocolate show.
