Just wondering what other chocolatiers are experiencing? It’s a weird time, sales of affordable luxury items such as chocolate can suffer, especially when you have raving mad headlines about taxing chocolate because its bad for you! The fact is too much BAD chocolate is bad for you. Good quality chocolate as part of a healthy diet is actually good for you!

No change…maybe slightly up.
We have packed in most of the farmers’ markets we used to do though. They have been suffering for the last couple of years.
Apart from this..the ‘lipstick’ effect does seem true with regards to chocolate.
