Photography Friday #15

Last Saturday we went to York for the day because we heard there was a chocolate festival on. Who am I to turn down stalls full of delicious chocolate? Turns out it was a combination of chocolate and other foods, the best of both worlds.

On the way to the centre we came across these geese with their babies, so fluffy!! I get a little crazy excited to see the babies pop about in the spring. 
This Choc affair chocolate stand was by far my favourite. Not only where the lovely ladies running it giving out delicious samples of the chocolate, but seemed really passionate about it. I tried the orange and geranium and it was the most unusual flavour combination I think I've ever had in a chocolate. So of course I had to get a bar. I also came home with a salted caramel bar (because duh) and a bar of their Single origin, which is a really unique Columbian chocolate. I opted for the dark bar and Fran went for the milk, and also added a Lime white chocolate bar to her mix. They sell their chocolate in a few places around York, or you can order online at www.choc-affair.com. Also, how cute is the packaging? 
I was also a fan of the beer stall, and picked up an assortment of 6 bottles. All pretty tasty as we put them to the test later that night. 
We found some blossom trees so I made Michael and Fran get under them for pictures, as you do. They are good sports.
After dropping our shopping off at the car we wandered back along the river to end our day in York. I could spend all day just getting lost in the cobbled streets and window shopping. It's still by far my favourite place I've been.

  6. Oh my, a chocolate festival in York? It sounds yummy! I love your photos of the jams and chocolates and beers. I think we saw those same beers, especially the Midnight Bell one, in London this weekend. Love the cherry blossoms too!

  10. It was a nice mix of food and chocolate. We got the midnight bell one, I think Adam had that one, and said it was ok. I had the mayan one and really liked it, unlike any beer I've tried. I'm sure they go to festivals everywhere but most were brewed around us I think.
