Celebrate National Chocolate Week with PicnicShop

Attention PicnicShoppers; I don't mean to alarm anyone, but today marks the start of National Chocolate Week here in the UK! The annual celebration of all things chocolatey is now in its tenth year and runs from the 13th- 19th October, culminating in 'The Chocolate Show' at the Olympia West in London.

The event plays host to the country's best chocolatiers, hotels, bars and restaurants; all coming together to celebrate the wonderful flavour of chocolate. Up to 15,000 chocolate fans are expected to visit the event this week.

If you're not able to make it to the Olympia but this blog post has whet your appetite for something sweet, we've recently added this bumper chocolate picnic hamper to PicnicShop. It contains all sorts of luxury continental chocolates - perfect for either yourself or perhaps a gift for someone special. And seeing as it's National Chocolate Week; you have our permission to enjoy your tasty treats guilt free!
