Rococo Chocolates: Pioneer of Luxury Chocolate
In the 1980s, Rococo Chocolates was born in King’s Road, Chelsea and was one of the first new wave British chocolatiers that changed the rather stale way confectionery was seen in the United Kingdom. It is very much a pioneer in a sector which up until the last two decades had been dominated by sugar-filled multi-national groups. The company was awarded the prize for "Changing The Way People Think About Chocolate" by the Academy of Chocolate in 2008. Rococo now use more of their own organic beans from their Grococo plantation in Grenada to create a quality that is accessible, edible and oozes quality from cocoa bean to bar or box. The craft and care that goes into anything by Rococo is exceptional.
Rococo Chocolates and the Mix of Magical and Magnificent Chocolate
Rococo stand out from the gourmet chocolate brands, through exquisite presentation and packaging reproduced from an 1850s French catalogue of chocolate moulds. Taste-wise the brand offers something that transcends imagination: Orange Marmalade, Basil and Persian Lime, and Rose Organic are stellar names that get the taste buds salivating. Rococo products are lovingly crafted but not too esoteric. They are driven by an ethic that chocolate should be “honest but not pompous”
The Christmas collection is a sensuous hit that brings all the Rococo features to the fore. The Luxury Festive Chocolate Collection comes in a joyous red gift box while inside there’s a mixture of truffles, ganaches, marzipan and floral creams. The Rococo Christmas bars are always a mythical mix, based in intense dark rich chocolate with Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh, traditional Christmas Pudding flavour plus a “new entry” of Milk Chocolate with Currants soaked in Brandy and Mixed Spices.
