Overview

Cocoa Runners are the UK's leading craft chocolate platform.

Over the course of about an hour and half, they will take you on an exploration of the amazing world of craft chocolate. You'll be delving into chocolate's curious history, exploring the diverse geography of the industry, and examining the science of taste and flavour. There'll also be some discussion of the very real social and environmental issues of chocolate, and how 'craft chocolate' is better for people and the planet.

To illustrate all of this, you'll get to taste a diverse range of chocolates, including dark, milk and white. And there'll be some chocolate with surprising texture and sensation along the way too. This virtual session will let you enjoy and engage from the comfort of home. You'll be able to interact with the session; answering questions, asking questions, and sharing your thoughts about each bar. It will all conclude with a fun quiz, with a craft chocolate prize on the line!
