We knew we were onto a winner when we first enrobed our Kendal Mint Cake with divine dark chocolate. There’s just something about chocolate that everybody adores.
Why is chocolate so popular?
There are many reasons why chocolate is the go-to confectionary for people all around the world.
It’s a mood booster
It’s a scientific fact that chocolate is good for you. Chocolate contains tryptophan which helps produce serotonin, the happy hormone. That’s why chocolate makes people feel happy and relaxed.
As well as covering mint cake with it, you can buy all sorts of chocolates: pralines, truffles, bars, drinking chocolate. There’s chocolate for every occasion. Hot chocolate will keep you warm and cosy on a dark winter’s evening and lovely and cool on ice cream in the summer.
Because most people love it, chocolate is definitely a sociable confectionery. It’s always an excellent choice to share with friends and family. Our chocolate hexagonal gift boxes are perfect for enjoying with others. Of course, you don’t have to share if you don’t want to!
It makes you smarter
Okay, so maybe this isn’t entirely true. But chocolate does contain small amounts of caffeine and theobromine, both of which can help stimulate concentration. And with more concentration, your brain can work harder. Maybe take our chocolate covered disc box to work and watch productivity soar!
It’s a flavour that goes with anything
And we mean anything. Milk chocolate with pinot noir. Dark chocolate with pretzels. White chocolate with caviar! There is an extensive chocolate pairing list.
Quiggin’s decided to combine peppermint and dark chocolate because the earthy tones of the chocolate compliment the refreshing flavour of the mint. You can enjoy this timeless combination with our chocolate covered mint cakes, or our chocolate covered peppermint creams.
Coconut is another flavour that’s delicious when paired with chocolate. Try our bags of milk chocolate covered coconut ice.
We also love the combination of dark chocolate and marzipan. Not only do we make plain chocolate-covered marzipan bars, but we also add in some more fantastic flavours with rum and raisin, cherry and white chocolate.
Nougat covered in milk chocolate is also another firm favourite at Quiggins.
Finally, chocolate is inclusive
Everyone can enjoy chocolate in one form or another.
There’s not just milk chocolate to eat. There’s also the divine flavours of dark chocolate and the lighter, creamy taste of white chocolate.
What’s the difference?
Dark chocolate is made from cocoa butter, cocoa powder and sugar. It’s the vegan-choice chocolate.
Try our dark chocolate mint cake.
Milk chocolate contains milk as well as cocoa butter, cocoa powder and sugar. It’s probably the most popular chocolate choice.
Try our milk chocolate hearts
White chocolate doesn’t contain cocoa powder. It’s cocoa butter, milk and sugar.
Try our white chocolate mice.
