Do you love chocolate??

First question I have to ask you. Do you love chocolate?

Just look at these hollow Santa's aren't they not only cute but good enough to eat? They certainly are!

Are you by now all screaming YESSSSS !!!! CHOCOLATE!!!! .... mmmm... I thought so....

Second question: Are you able to come to Taunton, Somerset UK coming weekend?

If you can, you could go to the Rural Living Show this weekend!

You will find (and now I quote from their blurb) "Crafts and Lifestyle show showcasing the finest regional crafts and foods. A long established show at a venue just outside Taunton with ample parking and food provided all day. The idea opportunity to have a great day out and buy unique Christmas presents! Supporting Children’s Hospice South West. Entertainment throughout the weekend. Entrance £3.

Saturday 27th, 10 am to 5.00pm/ Sunday 28th 10.00am to 4.00pm
Kings Hall School, Taunton, Somerset Somerset TA2 8AA

Sat 27 Nov to Sun 28 Nov

And what does this have to do with chocolate you ask? This weekend, on both days, you will encounter Rick and Lorna from "The Chocolate House" with not only a fine range of chocolates they have brought with them, but they will also have their chocolate fountain running to serve their famous chocolate kebabs! I can tell you, they only use the finest Belgian Chocolate in their creations and on their stall you are definitely in Chocolate Heaven!!

They have even a limited amount of free tickets for their customers although you will have to hurry.. there is great demand for them and gone is gone...

If you can't make it, not to worry. This weekend they have closed their shop to be able to attend the Rural Living Show, but normally they are open and in the shop ready to welcome you. The Chocolate House is located in the High Street and is currently open Tuesdays to Sunday from 11ish to 5ish. They are closed on Mondays.

Stop by after the weekend at the shop located in Dunster, a medieval village with a real castle! There is a lot to see and do apart from the visit to the Chocolat House!

And if you are weary from walking and sightseeing, you can refresh yourself with a lovely cup of coffee or tea (or hot chocolate of course.. made with REAL chocolate.. my favourite!!) and eat some of the yummy cakes and buns!

For those who can really not make it to either, there is still a chance to still your thirst for chocolatey goodness... They also have an online shop. You will find it HERE.

I know all you chocoholics will love their products as much as I do! Only one sad thing for all my overseas friends... due to the delicate (and very fresh in some cases) nature of the chocolates, currently they cannot send overseas...

So there is only one solution... get on that plane and visit me!! :-)

But seriously, if you are near Taunton this weekend, or near Dunster any other day.. give them a try. Chocolate Heaven.. you know you deserve it ! (say hi from me when you get there please, as I am too far away this weekend..)

You have inspired me to crack open some vintage hot chocolate this evening - it's so blimming cold it's got to be done!

Liz said...

I'll be there tomorrow, well, in spirit I will and my spirit will have to sample the chocolate for me...sigh!!

That is a question? Whether I like chocolate ??? I LOVE that stuff - and I'm sooo glad I'm far far away from that cute shop. Neither my waistline nor my wallet would be safe ;-))) but I would have a lot of fun! Thanks for reminding me of just how much I love chocolate !!

We had a good time at the Rural Living Show and are now back at the shop getting ready for the Dunster by Candlelight event this Friday and Saturday.
The village is closed to traffic and houses and businesses use candlelight (as much as is pactically possible) and we have street entertainment and food - lovely atmosphere and lots and lots of visitors!
