Summer has arrived here in London. The RHS Chelsea Flower Show is in full swing and the May bank holiday is just around the corner. Wimbledon’s lawns are getting greener by the day and we’ve just started selling our bestselling ice cream in our shops.
This time of year also heralds the arrival of the limited edition summer specials in our Seasonal Collection of fresh truffles and ganaches. These are all made by hand in small batches in our West Dulwich kitchen by our talented team of Chocolatiers.
For this year’s collection, they’ve not only drawn on the flavours of summer and championed the best of British ingredients. They’ve also been inspired by our shared sense of nostalgia for British summertime experiences. After all, taste and memory are very closely linked.
Pop into any of our London shops to sample the selection and make up a summer chocolate box. Perfect for summer gifts – or a treat just for you!
