Frankly, we don’t need it to be Valentine’s to encourage our chocolate habit – we celebrate that most days! But it seems an especially good reason to introduce you to the rather wonderful Only Coco.
Single origin chocolates, handmade in small batches right here in East Sussex – what a treat! Obviously we had to try some just to be sure they’re as good as they’re cracked up to be. And then we tried quite a lot more just to make extra sure…we can confirm that they’re delicious!
From chocolate bars and buttons, to truffles, brownies and honeycomb there’s something to suit every sweet tooth – make a note to visit them when you’re holidaying here later this year. There’s Only Coco in Hastings – which has a cute little cafe too, and also its sister shop Rye Chocolates in – you guessed it – Rye! But you don’t need to wait until lockdown is over – you can shop online for a treat for your special someone, or maybe just to cheer yourself up in lockdown!
The business had very humble beginnings back in 2016 starting production with ‘Lilly’ a small chocolate machine from the Welsh valleys! The Only Coco team has worked with creative flair and huge enthusiasm to curate the best recipes and source the finest ingredients from around the world. Their love and passion for all things chocolate shows – with a range of artisan chocolates that is nothing short of amazing! Can you tell we’re fans? (Sarah has spent much of lockdown eating chocolate – she regards herself a connossieur!)
You’ll see flavours you might expect like Salted Caramel or Hazelnut but discover others much more unusual too – like Fig or what about Earl Grey Crème, or Maple and Pecan? So many to choose from! Their flavours are always fun and fresh and ever changing. And you have to check out the packaging – each flavour has a unique design to its wrapper. They are super stylish and mini works of art – almost too good to unwrap (almost!).
Rather wonderfully for you they’re offering a ten percent discount for online orders via their website, you just need to quote swallowtailhill at checkout! Give them a follow on social media while you’re at it! @onlycocochocolates @ryechocolates
