I was up early on Saturday morning for the New Zealand Chocolate Festival! I arrived well before the doors opened, but there was already a crowd waiting eagerly outside!
RQute by Rochelle Harrison is a line of chocolate with bright colours and graphics. I saw this ‘Choco Miss’ lollipop and bought it on the spot!
My other amazing find is not made of chocolate, but looks and smells just as delicious! Jayne Lapin from Lavage makes an amazing range of soap that looks and smells just like real cakes, confectionary, and chocolate! I bought a rainbow bar soap and a Chocolate Frog soap. The Chocolate Frog looks so realistic that it even has a label on the back stating that it is soap and not food!
