The directory below was originally created during the first pandemic lockdown of 2020 and stored on chocolateecstasytours.com. Finally it exists again! The businesses are not necessarily recommendations from me , just a resource to help you find artisan chocolate easily deliverable within the UK. If you'd like to see if I've tasted and recommend chocolate from them use the search bar in the top right to see if they have been mentioned amongst "The Next Delicious Thing" blog.
Please share with me on social media if you try any!
Or, join one of my monthly online Mystery Chocolate Tastings and taste some of the best live with me and special guests!
