It's a family business, and everything is done by hand - from filling the moulds for the bars to sprinkling on the different toppings. It's fascinating to watch the small number of employees - only three when I was there - knowing how far and wide their product is sold.
Photos: my Bakewell Tart Brownie and huge vats of chocolate. I could have watched that chocolate swirling around all day!
Actually, this post is rather lacking in chocolate, but I have been eating a lot of it, so that counts right?
Oh, okay, here's a pic of chocolates. They are very yummy :-)
Over the years, I've found the most successful resolutions are the ones that don't try to change me. Losing weight, giving up chocolate/alcohol/smoking, running five miles every week... those things are prone to failure.
One year I resolved to put my small change in the charity boxes in shops - they all have them right next to the tills, so it's hardly difficult. It becomes a habit very quickly, and I don't even notice how much I'm giving. I've done it ever since.
I don't always make resolutions (sometimes I make them on my birthday instead), but this year I jokingly mentioned on Facebook that I was going to perfect the art of selfie taking. I am not at all photogenic, and if I ever take one it usually gets deleted immediately. Even the idea made me shudder.
However, in my head, this morphed into Take a Selfie Every Day for a Year. And that's what I'm doing.
I've created a special folder for them on my laptop, and I will not be deleting any of them. Not even the really hideous one I took today in front of a rainbow - it should have been such a good one!
I probably won't share them with anyone, unless I do actually perfect the art, in which case I'll be all over the place. But it will be an interesting documentation of my year.
How about you? Have you made any resolutions? Would you like to join my selfie challenge?
