Our girls (age 1 and 4) loved the chocolate workshop!

They decorated the chocolate moulds and labels and even tasted some yummy chocolates! They really enjoyed themselves and are so pleased with the finished product which I picked up today! All I'm hearing now is "can we eat them now" haha! Thank you so much!!

What an amazing evening I had just before Christmas with two of my closest friends.

Trace was so warm and welcoming, passionate about her business and her enthusiasm is infectious.

The chocolate… wow some of the best I’ve tasted (and there’s been a lot) and what a hot chocolate that was. 

The chocolates we made impressed my family as a little pre dessert Christmas Day all hand decorated in a Christmas theme. 

Highly recommend going, I’ll certainly be back

Well my boyfriend just tested the tiramisu little pud and he said he wants another one. I wonder if you have approached supermarkets with you chocolate? It's so unique and tastes incredible…..really puts other vegan chocolate to shame. I had to go back to Artopia and restock with the chocolate bar not even making it to the end of the road on 2 occasions. Absolutely incredible flavour

What an absolute find. We were looking for a chocolate making workshop for kids where they could just enjoy without us being there. Trace at The Chocolaty Story made that happen. Not only did they get the experience to make their own chocolate, make their own hot chocolate but they learnt loads and managed to taste test what they used!! I saw two nervous kids walk in and 2 beaming smiles walking out and it wasn’t just the sugar rush. It was the magic of Trace bringing out the best in them. Thank you you made their day. The chocolate is amazing too!!! So much so we purchased more from the shop.

Delicious chocolates that look too amazing to eat ! By far the yummiest vegan chocs I've ever tasted ! Each bite is heavenly , They make the best gifts as well! I love the quirky ideas they are always coming up with, it's always exciting to see what they'll create next!

Just had the vegan banoffee puds and they're honestly sooooo good ! |love a gooey middle and they look great as always!
