We've been taking part in the monthly Mystery Chocolate online tastings that Jennifer Earle has been running over these past few months and can thoroughly recommend them! They are such fun to take part in and we have sampled some incredible chocolate from small producers all over the country who either make bean to bar chocolate or chocolate truffles. Each month Jen has an interesting special guest, the chocolate bars or truffles we sample are different each time, we learn fascinating things - and we can't praise these sessions highly enough! If you enjoy really good chocolate you will love trying all these different bars and chocolates.......and if you have yet to try some really good chocolate - then these are the sessions for you!

My daughter bought this tour for me to celebrate my 50th birthday. Our tour leader was Natasha. We started in Hotel Chocolat with a delicious hot chocolate drink with mousse on top, a birthday brownie and she talked us through a history of chocolate. We tried several different chocolates as well, including the very tasty caramelised white chocolate. Definitely going to buy some of that! (We could have bought some while we were there, with a discount, but I wanted to see what else we'd have an opportunity to buy which I regret!) Our next stop was William Curley's where we could try another hot chocolate (I went for the Mayan spiced one) and some of their chocolates. We then went to the Queen's favourite chocolate shop Charbonnel et Walker, and tasted her favourite chocolates (violet and rose creams). Unfortunately our last stop was closed due to a power cut so we had another walk to a different final stop, Carpo. Here we tried florentines and praline truffles. Natasha filled us in with lots of interesting facts as we wandered around London, pointing out some lovely architecture as well. It was helpful that she gave us some water and also carried savoury snacks with her in case we needed a break from the sweetness. We both enjoyed the tour and would recommend it to anyone who loves chocolate!

My Mum and I both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and it was the perfect birthday treat for her. The Harrods café was the perfect starting point - the braffle was to die for and it was nice to start off with a walk around the Harrods food hall. Our guide Sunny was very good; informative but also relaxed and friendly. Lots of lovely sweet treats to sample from some amazing places - heaven! The five star rating is certainly justified and I am planning on recommending this to all my sweet-toothed friends!

We loved our ice cream tour with Natasha and could not have asked for a better experience. We stopped at five different ice cream parlors and by the end of the tour we were stuffed! Highly recommend this tour for dessert lovers and ice cream fanatics.
