We told you recently that Ferrero Rocher would be launching a themed café, open until 11 December in Covent Garden. It sounded fun, but what’s it actually like?
This is basically a café with timed sittings, so you can either walk in or book a place in advance. The ‘experience’ lasts around 20 minutes, and for £10, or £15 with a glass of prosecco (no brainer) you get a tray of mini Ferrero Rocher inspired chocolates.
You start at the centre with a praline mousse covered hazelnut, moving around to a chocolate case filled with ganache, pieces of crisp wafer shell, then a chocolate bomb, onto which is poured hot chocolate sauce. Finally, there’s a mini candy floss and an actual Ferrero Rocher.
So what did we think? Well, if you like Ferrero Rocher, it’s 20 minutes of good, clean fun. We can think of worse ways to take a break from Christmas shopping. Also, they’re selling giant Ferrero Rocher — what more could you want?
The pop-up runs until 11 December at 21 Slingsby Place, WC2E 9AB. You can book tickets in advance or walk in between 1 – 10pm every day (closed Monday 5 December).
