A new visitor attraction is offering boyfriends and husbands the chance to bask in glory this Valentine’s Day, with a special package designed to woo chocoholic partners.
Rather than giving her the predictable box of chocolates, York’s Chocolate Story is encouraging men to go the extra mile this year and treat wives and girlfriends to the ultimate gift: a day dedicated to their real true love, chocolate.
A cultural trip to York’s Chocolate Story is sure to get you in the good books. Take a fun-filled, interactive tour of some of the world’s most iconic confectionery brands and products, guided by a Confectioneer, and go on a romantic journey through the wonderful sweets and treats that came from the great city of York – while you sample the choccy delights you learn about.
Master the fine art of chocolate-tasting, before experiencing tantalising chocolate-making demonstrations where you can try your hand at making heart-shaped chocolates freshly made especially for you by top chocolatiers. Next is a chocolate lolly making workshop, where you can work together to create your own heart shaped lollies.
Once you’ve finished the tour, settle down in The Chocolate Bar café for a truly alternative foodie experience. Enjoy chocolate fondue for two by candlelight, and be a gentleman by giving her the last marshmallow or strawberry.
Finally, browse the Chocolate Shop, full of deliciously tempting gifts, and buy her something to remember the day.
