As shown by the yards of bunting and yellow bikes adorning the city, there is great excitement in York about the coming of the Tour de France. Here at York’s CHOCOLATE Story, we’re no different!
Our master chocolatiers have created some exquisite cycling-themed chocolates to celebrate Le Grand Départ. Inspired by the cyclists’ jerseys, our ‘Le Choc’ collection includes ‘le caramel’, ‘biscuit crunch’ and ‘ganache au citron’. In celebration of the British twist to the 2014 Tour, we also have a white chocolate creation sporting a Union Jack design. Just like the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the iconic sporting event in Yorkshire, our hand-crafted chocolates are limited edition so head to York’s CHOCOLATE Story to catch them before they’re gone. We would like to say the chocolates offer a perfect memento to commemorate the occasion, but they’re so delicious we doubt they will last very long…
If you’re visiting York to catch the race, be sure to make us your first choice refreshment station. We have a wide variety of beverages, all available to take out, whether you opt for a creamy milkshake in flavours including rocky road and caramel honeycomb, an indulgent hot chocolate – made using only the finest hot chocolate – or simply a ‘pick me up’ coffee to keep you revitalised during the wait.
We are all crossing our fingers and toes for good weather for the race, but if the clouds open, in true Yorkshire style, a visit to York’s CHOCOLATE Story provides an ideal alternative to a drenching. Join us this weekend to celebrate York’s chocolate tradition!
