ON 13TH OCTOBER, l GOT INVITED TO PREVIEW EVENT FOR THE CHOCOLATE FASHION SHOW and have a taster of various chocolate stalls before it started off with its three days main event for rest of the public. I was lucky enough to be invited as a VIP for the preview show called ‘The Chocolate Show’ to see a fashion catwalk and taste multinational chocolates before the event went live for rest of public by ‘The Datery‘ couple who are makers of delicious (khajoor) dates.
Day started off with me rushing from one of work event I was made to help out near Charing Cross, so lucky enough they allowed me go early and make it on time for the chocolate fashion show, as it was slightly racing against time as the catwalk was scheduled for 8pm and I left work event around 7. However I did make it on time 20 minutes before it started, so once I entered Olympia Hall straight away went to ‘The Datery’ team to thank them for they kind gesture for inviting me.
After meeting and speaking with the two talented couples at The Datery. I managed to surf around each stall and grab myself a tropical drink from choice’s above to refresh before fashion show started, once it got closer to time I went to see if I could grab a spot but it was too late as all seats were filled with people so I had to stand and watch the show, which was quite good, loved song choices that were played. I have recorded and uploaded most of Chocolate Catwalk onto youtube, so feel free to check it out from the hyperlink.
After watching 30mins of the chocolate fashion catwalk show, I decided to meet up with my fellow food blogger and her friend to taste what each stall had to offer us, so we went to each stall inside Olympia Hall but one stall that stood out for us was ‘Azra chocolates they chocolates were amazing, especially on how realistic they look with Women, Baby, and Men shoes were truly beautiful.
The team behind these realistic made chocolates have truly done an amazing job, I was about to touch them just to see if they were actually real, but my friend stopped me from doing something silly luckily, so that is saying something on how good they look.
Moving on around stalls we saw the Best awarding winning Bad Brownies, these looked really nice as they had a range of flavours from Snickers, Triple Choc, Salted Caramel which is they awarding winning brownie. These delicious brownies sure did look amazing, I did eventually buy some for my sister and family, where I bought the award-winning brownie and the snickers to taste, which I felt snickers was slightly disappointing but salted caramel was good.
As we walked around Olympia to see more stall, one thing that again captured my eyes was these PlayStation and Star Wars chocolates, since I’m a huge lover of PlayStation ever since I was a child I have had all the PlayStation consoles, from 1 to 4 so these were like incredible fact they made PlayStation controllers as chocolate 2 in one, could not go wrong in that at all 😀
After going around on a number of occasions, especially looking for an almond chocolate, which we could not find it anywhere at all. One thing that could have been much better we thought was fact that stall should have had a glass of water for people along with their samples of chocolates as they made our throats very dry eventually. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed my overall experience of seeing the fashion show and tasting and meeting various people, a fun short event.
These were the outcome of Bad Brownies when I got home, they were pretty huge and could be cut in half to share with others left being the snickers and right being salted caramel.
