Close your eyes and imagine rich, delectable chocolate melting on your mouth. Feels great, doesn’t it? And with research revealing that consuming real dark chocolate contributes to a healthy heart, taking part in a chocolate tasting class might be just what the doctor ordered (for your health – of course). Chocolate tasting is perfect for Christmas because it will make you feel all warm inside on this cold, winter’s day. Whether you want to treat a special someone, or have a well-deserved day or evening out with your loved ones, chocolate tasting is a truly wonderful experience.
Ideal for the season
Chocolate is one of those sweet treats that are synonymous with the Christmas period. Think advent calendars, chocolate logs, and hot chocolates by the fire. It’s a tradition so deep in our life, that a chocolate tasting class is perfect for this winter, and feel festive as you taste the different textures and flavours. Discover more about the chocolates journey, from the cocoa bean, to the perfectly handmade, treat you see today.
A great sharing gift
With the Christmas period are coming up, and perhaps you are short of ideas for what to get a loved one. Chocolate tasting is perfect for the holidays because it’s a gift that can be enjoyed together. You can add this experience to your bank of memories, and not only that, but you can make the gift stretch that little bit further, by buying some of the chocolate that you really enjoyed and gifting it boxed.
The word “chocolate” didn’t actually enter the English dictionary until 1604, but the story of chocolate didn’t begin there. What else is there to chocolate that you might not have otherwise known? There is so much more to know and a chocolate tasting class over the Christmas period not only gives you the physical experience of devouring these wonderful treats, but will also give you a historical and contextual background knowledge of the countries they came from, how it is created, the artistry behind each design and more. When you leave, you’ll be a chocolate expert.
It’s good for you...
Within reason, consuming a healthy amount of chocolate, as shown by many different studies, can actually have positive health benefits. This is good news to the average person who spends £6,000 on chocolate over their life time. Not only that, but according to a 2017 report by Mintel, Brits consume the most chocolate than any other country - about 8.4kgs worth. Chocolate contains antioxidants which are also proven to have positive health effects, and is found to help in the prevention of illnesses like heart disease, as well as improving cognitive performance in those who consumed chocolate one a week in comparison to those who didn’t, as one study found. Do you really need more reasons why chocolate tasting is perfect for Christmas?
