What is it about chocolate?
It’s a well-known fact amongst confectioners that sales of the brown stuff always go up in the winter…
And why do we ‘just fancy a bit of chocolate’?
Well there’s definitely a degree of tradition – Chocolate Brazils at Christmas, right? And nostalgia plays a huge part. Those sweets and treats that we loved as children are usually the first ones that we will pick for an adult treat.
We’ve been making quality Belgium heart lollies ready for Valentines Day in store this week and seriously the smell is incredible. I wonder if smell is enough to trigger the endorphins and serotonin that scientists talk about cacao releasing in our brain?
So as the cold winter weather finally hits in Devon, we’re anticipating our chocolate will continue to sell brilliantly as we all look for a pick me up.
Our number one comfort food!
