Chocolate Day UK


What better way to celebrate Chocolate Day UK than with Scottish chocolate crafted in our very own country?

A special occasion is worthy of special chocolate. Imagine enjoying chocolate which has be made from ingredients from all corners of the British Isles. At Highland Chocolatier we have made this possible with our Sandringham Truffles.

These very special chocolates have been crafted for her Majesty Queen Elizabeth’s 90th Birthday. This limited recipe has been made with blackcurrants grown in the Queen’s very own garden at her Sandringham residence in Norfolk.

Celebrate the Queens 90th birthday and Chocolate Day at the one time! We have searched the UK for the finest ingredients for this one off event and have taken fresh cream from Scotland, butter from Northern Ireland, honey from Wales as well as the unforgettable blackcurrants from England.

If you would like to feel like royalty on National Chocolate Day, do it right with our range of limited edition chocolate boxes.


Dark Chocolate: The Superfood


Is it true that dark chocolate can be good for your health? Yes! Dark chocolate is packed with organic compounds which are biologically active and act as antioxidants.

It has also been discovered that in some cases cocoa and dark chocolate contain more antioxidants, polyphenols and flavanols than other superfoods such as blueberries and Acai berries!

Since there is lots of goodness inside dark chocolate it can benefit your heart, lowering blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Why not improve your brain function with dark chocolate from Highland Chocolatier? We use the finest of materials in our special chocolates made with 70% São Tomé dark chocolate. Matched with crushed raspberries our Raspberry Dark Chocolate Bar would be a simple present for a dark chocolate lover on Chocolate Day and it is also a UK Freepost Item!


Relax with Tea and Chocolate

At the end of a long day a piece of Highland Chocolatier chocolate could be all you need to unwind. The smell of chocolate triggers theta brain waves ultimately making you feel more relaxed.

Did you know that in the UK we drink 165 million cups daily and 60.2 billion per year!  Our Lemongrass & Hint of Lime Velvet Pralines pair perfectly with Earl Grey Blue Flower Tea.

The lemongrass which features in these delightful chocolate pieces heightens the floral qualities of the light tea taste. With a touch of lime and a thin layer of dark chocolate it is the perfect balance of flavours for a tea and chocolate enthusiast.


Scottish Chocolate and Whisky Pairings

It is not only tea which matches well with our Scottish chocolate but why not pour a dram for the occasion. Scotland is famous for making the world’s best whisky and we export 38 bottles of whisky every second.

Scottish whisky is sold in over 200 markets across the world and makes up 78% of Scotland’s food and drink export market – it’s not only great chocolate that is created here but wonderful malts too!

If you know someone who enjoys the taste of both our Whisky Tasting Box of 9 Paired Chocolates would be a great thank you gift this Chocolate Day. Open up the box to find our award-winning Velvet Truffle, infused with real fruit and natural spice.
