England’s World Cup campaign may have been a bit of a disappointment this year, but at least York’s CHOCOLATE Story has brought the trophy home! To celebrate the final of the competition and Germany’s success this weekend, our chocolatiers created a life-sized solid chocolate sculpture of the trophy, which we donated to York City Football Club.
The expert chocolatiers at York’s CHOCOLATE Story created the Cup using real Belgian modelling chocolate, decorated with edible gold lustre. We’re sure you’ll agree that the stunningly realistic results have made three whole days invested by our chocolatiers in perfecting the intricacies of the Cup wholly worthwhile. The replica, which weighs approximately 5kg, is completely edible!
We awarded the trophy to York City’s first team on Friday morning, meaning that although Roy Hodgson’s men may have crashed out of the competition at the group stages, an English team has had the opportunity to lift the trophy. And after all, who wants gold when you can have chocolate?
At the Club’s first pre-season fixture against Sheffield Wednesday this Saturday (12th July), the sculpture was awarded to Charlotte Frary and her son during the half-time 50/50 cash draw. All profits from the draw are invested in the club so fans can be assured that their efforts are benefitting the team and – fingers crossed – help their drive for promotion next season.
