We love any kind of festivities here at the Harrogate Chocolate Factory, especially when those festivities include chocolate! With production of our bars doubling over the past few months, we have no begun to think about bringing out more items in the coming years, especially Halloween chocolates, Christmas advent calendars, valentines day boxes and easter eggs.

Chocolate and Christmas go together like Santa and Elves. Advent calendars, stocking fillers, snacks on Christmas eve and Christmas night, gifts to loved ones and the famous Christmas chocolate log. It’s a known fact that chocolate plays a huge part in Christmas, which is why at the Harrogate Chocolate Factory, we try and incorporate the celebrations into our training and make it as festive as possible. These holidays give our learners the chance to experiment with the chocolate and have a bit of fun with it. Even though we have no products out yet, creating the fillings and doing different kinds of moulding is exciting a new to a lot of our trainees.

We are also getting ready to make over 1000 hampers for Ilke Homes who have ordered hampers for their employees from us for 3 years now! This year we are adding even more Harrogate local products such as Harrogate brewed beer, artisan gin, our very own chocolate and Yorkshire chutneys. These are only a few items that are going to be making an appearance this Christmas in our hampers.  We are also making it as eco-friendly as possible with putting them in cardboard recyclable boxes rather than using cellophane or plastic.

Our hampers will also be on sale in the Harrogate Chocolate Factory Café at the run up to Christmas (so don’t miss out and visit before Christmas to get your speciality Christmas hamper – the perfect gift!)
