I went to Chocolate Heaven in the East Midlands

I recently spent a week staying in a lodge at Market Rasen in Lincolnshire for a lovely and well-deserved break.

(please excuse the dreadful tan lines).

While I was there, we visited Willingham Woods which has lovely walkways. It was a great place to go in the fabulous weather we’ve had for the past few weeks in the UK. Not far from Willingham Woods, we found The Chocolate Drop – a store and cafe selling handmade chocolate treats. It was absolute heaven for me – a huge chocolate lover.

There were so many sweet treats, I didn’t know where to look first. We were greeted by one of the workers who offered me some samples to try. As one of the rare specimens who like dark chocolate, I tried a range of different dark samples including chilli and lime. Sounds strange but tasted wonderful.

After I was full on chocolate buttons, the man showed me a lump of chocolate which he rubbed onto my left hand. It felt greasy for a couple of seconds, then my hand just felt so smooth. Actually, it felt smooth for the rest of the day. He told me it was a bar of cocoa butter and that it helps people’s skin a great deal. He showed me a case study of someone with a very bad skin condition and after using one of those cocoa butter bars for a short amount of time, their skin had improved massively. Following my visit here, I have got my second tattoo and have been using Palmer’s cocoa butter to heal that. Look forward to a post on tattoo aftercare once it has healed. Cocoa Butter really is my new favourite skincare product!

The store itself is amazing and has lots of lovely items that would make great gifts or just treats for yourself. They have many chocolates that are suitable for vegetarians, vegans, diabetics and coeliacs. I was particularly intrigued by the luxury Spanish drinking chocolate. It’s such a shame that I couldn’t stay to try some in the cafe… I guess that’s a good excuse to go back!

All I would say is that they should improve their social media platforms because I’ve struggled to find them on Twitter or Instagram. However, you can find their website here. They also have a Facebook page and their contact number is 01673 844073.

This store really is a hidden gem and if you’re ever passing by Lincolnshire, I recommend you pop by.

    So indulging! On a serious note, I bought cocoa butter before and it broke me out, I think it was from the dollar store. Now that I’m more aware of organic products, your post has encouraged me to try Cocoa butter again in raw form…I hear it’s good for moisturizing hair.
