The UK might be famed for its Creme Eggs, Kit Kats and other world-famous candy bar brands, but the country has played an important historical role in the development of modern chocolate that’s meant for eating, not just drinking, which was the way chocolate was consumed for thousands of years.
The UK is also now one of the leading locations for the modern ‘craft chocolate’ movement, with many small ‘micro-batch’ chocolate makers, world-class chocolatiers and a vibrant movement of chocolate fairs, walking tours and museums.
