Our Chester shop held a children’s design-a-chocolate competition, which was judged by Geoff Price. Geoff, an ex-jockey, race horse trainer and artist is a very well-known character who always knows what’s going on in Chester and visits us almost daily! You can find him at http://www.art-geoffreyprice.
Geoff was very impressed with all the entries but singled out Elsa’s design as the winner and Zach and Samuel as runners up.
This is Elsa’s design (we can see why Geoff might have liked this one!), which won her a goody bag of chocolate.

Zach and Samuel both won Rococo City farms, and Geoff had a vanilla ice cream for his trouble!
Earlier in May Chester also hosted a chocolate tasting event to celebrate our recent awards. It was a beautiful evening and we toasted the Chester store’s recent 1st birthday, Rococo’s 30th Anniversary and our award winning chocolates with a glass of Prosecco. The shop mirror is now decorated with congratulations from our lovely customers.
Plenty of people turned up to sample the our recent award winners: (deep breath!) White Cardamom Bar, Rose Otto Bar, Milk Sea Salt Bar, Grenada Nib-a-licious, House Truffle, Kalamansi Lime Caramel, Passionfruit and Rosemary Caramel and Salted Chocolate Toffee Praline. All the chocolates were very well received and it was agreed that the Kalamansi Lime was the overall favourite in Chester.
