What makes this tour special

Your Experience
 
Few things infatuate human beings more than the luxurious feeling of chocolate melting in our mouths. When many people think of this delight, they think of Continental Europe, for example, Switzerland, Belgium or maybe Italy. However,  we have been working with London’s own Dark Sugar who see things a little bit differently. This Brick Lane chocolate shop reminds us that 70% of the world’s cocoa comes from West Africa. Embracing this, Nyanga, the mastermind behind Dark Sugars, worked tirelessly for a decade to bring the prized Ghanaian cocoa beans to London. 
After taking Borough Market by storm, they have now opened a number of stores in London. Now, Nyanga and her group want to share their passion for chocolate with you! Dark Sugars have curated an original experience into the world of chocolate. You will have a chance to sample their award-winning chocolate as well as gaining a unique insight into how they are made and even getting a chance to help create some chocolate yourself with their high-quality ingredients. By the end of the day you will have had a unique experience delving into the world of chocolate and furthermore a great time with the team at Dark Sugars, rated as London’s Coolest Chocolate Shop. If you need anymore convincing feel free to look up their famous hot chocolate, regarded as one of the best in London!
 
Your Day with Us
 
·     Arrive at Dark Sugars, London’s Coolest Chocolate Shop. Meet one of their team of chocolate aficionados who will be your guide for the day.

Also have a chance to discuss what aspects you like about chocolate and I am sure your guide will have some top-quality advice.
 
·     After learning about the world of chocolate it is time to get hands on. Come downstairs to their onsite kitchen and see how the chocolates are made and have a chance to get involved in the process.
 
·     After being truly immersed into the world of chocolate and having plenty of tasting along the way it will now be time to wrap up your experience. But before you leave, be sure to ask them for the best places in the local area to carry on your delicious day.
