A year has passed since we last wrote about the 2016 Christmas.
There have been several major events to mark the occasion, from the inauguration of Barack Obama as the new US President to the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee to the opening of the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
But while the year was marked by some great events, many of them were not particularly good for chocolate.
A year ago, the best thing we could say about the festive season was that it was a wonderful time to be a chocolate nut, and we can’t disagree with that.
But while the 2016 holiday was certainly memorable, the year has also seen a number of other events that we feel are worthy of the title “The Best Of”.
Here are the best chocolate moments in 2018:We’re not going to pretend that this is a comprehensive list, but we’re going to stick to some of the best events, and hope you find some inspiration in what we’ve written.
Some of the most memorable chocolate moments from 2018:The Great Pumpkin CaravanThe Great Christmas SweepsIn December of 2018, chocolate makers started the annual Great Pumpkin caravan, which saw chocolate lovers gather around a campfire in London’s Hyde Park to celebrate the holidays.
The caravan, run by the British Chocolate Company, was designed to help celebrate the holiday season and encourage people to take a more active role in the baking process.
“We’re always looking to make chocolate as special as the holidays are for our customers and we hope that you’ll be joining us for the caravan,” said Sarah Erskine-Williams, co-owner of the company, in a statement.
“As the holiday seasons get closer, we want to see chocolate become more of a holiday experience, and the caravan is the perfect way to bring that to life.”
To celebrate this year’s Great Pumpkin, we’ve set up a number on the streets of London and will have a variety of seasonal treats to choose from.
We’ll also be serving up a chocolate bar with a special treat this year, so come along and help us celebrate.
“A Christmas TruceThe Great Chocolate Truce, which kicked off on December 23, saw the British chocolate industry launch a special year-long chocolate sales campaign to raise money for charity.
It was a great day for the industry, and it was an amazing day for chocolate lovers around the world.
But, despite the good vibes, we feel that there are still plenty of things we can improve on in 2018.
For example, some of these events may be more suited to an afternoon or weekend, rather than the weekend.
So, we’re taking a look at some of our favorite chocolate moments of 2018 from around the UK and around the globe.
Happy New Year!
