Bars, bakes, desserts, patisserie, ice cream and truffles... these delicious chocolatey treats are all part of the lip-smacking line-up at the UK's biggest celebration of all things sweet — The Chocolate Show — as it returns to London Olympia this October.
And if that's not enough to whet your appetite, perhaps the celebrity line-up will do the job: with masterclasses from the likes of doyenne of baking Nadiya Hussain, former Great British Bake Off winner Edd Kimber, TV chef and food writer John Whaite and master chocolatier Paul A Young.
Some of the world's top chocolate brands will be in attendance, too. You might want to arrive on an empty stomach, to make the most of the sumptuous tastings on offer from exhibitors such as Hotel Chocolat and Bad Brownie Co.
If, God forbid, you get tired of eating the stuff, take a break and gawk at the magnificent chocolate art pieces in the Choco l'ART gallery — before diving right back in with chocolate and alcohol pairings at The Chocolate Bar. You'll even get the chance to witness one of the UK's top patissiers get crowned the winner of the Chocolate Dessert of the Year competition.
There really is something for everyone — from those that can be found lurking the Harrods Confectionery Hall, to those who simply enjoy a good snacking. After all, there's one thing that unites us all: a love of the sweet stuff.
And if you're anything like us, you're probably already salivating at the thought of it all. Tickets are available now, and Londonist readers can get an exclusive 15% off with discount code LONDONIST. The event runs from the 13-15 October at London Olympia.
