A celebration of all things good and right
The Chocolate Festival took place this weekend, and just like last year, it was a chocolate lovers dream. The Southbank was transformed into a haven of white, milk and dark chocolate, not to mention the spiced, Guatemalan, Venezuelan, and flavoured chocolates, which fall in between.



We found Peruvian chocolate slabs, hazelnut and raisin studded milk chocolate, as well as mini chocolate bars in every flavour. The sheer array of chocolate on offer was a little overwhelming. My friend and I were in our element; The Chocolate Festival was a true celebration of the cacao nut.

When we walked in, we found ourselves in a bit of a pickle: which way to go first? There were cakes, as well as chocolate, so it was quite difficult to think of where to start. As we meandered through the centre square we were both quite taken with the mini cupcakes presented ever so prettily on a stand before us.

It was samples-galore and my friend and I truly gorged on all manner of chocolate things. From white chocolate cookies and dark chocolate sponges, triple chocolate covered nuts, and the dairy-free kind; the Chocolate Festival was a feast for my sweet tooth.

Considering it was the last day of the event, the centre wasn't as busy as thought it would be. That said, I visited on a Saturday last year, and it was difficult to move. I recommend visiting next years Chocolate Festival on the least busy day like Friday. It's a fun day out, and just like the samples, it is free.

If you can't make it to the event at Southbank, find the Chocolate Festival in Bristol, Oxford, and Brighton.
