The love of chocolate is something we can all agree on, and with 8 million Brits eating chocolate every day; it is safe to say that this sweet treat is a firm favourite in the United Kingdom.
Creating chocolate is not an easy process, with the six stages involving fermentation, drying, roasting, crushing, grinding and conching to release the beans from the cocoa pod.
The UK is in the middle of a chocolate revolution, with many chocolate fans setting up micro operations to create great quality chocolate in small batches. Milk chocolate makes up 50% of all chocolate consumed in the UK, closely followed by dark and milk.
Coinciding with Chocolate Week is the Chocolate Show at the Olympia in London. Taking place on the 13th-15th October, a whole host of events are taking place to celebrate the luxurious treat. A Chocolate Show with chef demos, workshops, tastings, sculptures, pop up restaurants and a chocolate bar will be in action – making it the perfect place for chocoholics to indulge.
