Six weeks to go…

As Christmas approaches rapidly, we have been busy stocking the shop with delicious delights to enjoy in December (or even November).

This year we have an outstanding array of novelty chocolate gifts for the children and those playful adults, including chocolate chess sets, a chocolate stacking game, chocolate pizza’s, chocolate iphones and even a whole foot of chocolate. Our chocolate santa’s, reindeer and snowmen are ideal for stocking fillers.

So Cocoa is stockists of Booja Booja (dairy, sugar, gluten free chocolate), Charbonnel et Walker, Willies World Class Cacao, Montezuma’s, Hipo Hyfred and Gower Cottage Brownies. This Christmas our shelves are stocked full of these ranges so you can sample for yourselves their superb quality.

Our chocolate counter is bursting with flavour: pistachio truffles, cinnamon cups, cappucino truffles, mulled wine truffles and salted caramels, as well as our more unusual flavours such as white chocolate and balsamic ganache and dark chocolate wasabi. Fill one of our decorative gift boxes with your choice of truffles or let us make up a selection for you; a luxurious treat.

So Cocoa will shortly be available to buy through Big Barn, a champion of local produce and independent retailers and well worth a browse if you are someone who enjoys high quality food.

Happy Christmas shopping……why not say it with chocolate this year!
