Dream Chocolate Bar Brought to Life by Dobbies

23 June, 2015

Champagne, strawberries and popping candy was the winning combination for loyal customer, Sally-Anne Foster, who entered a nationwide competition launched by Dobbies Garden Centres to create a limited edition chocolate bar to mark the retailer’s 150th anniversary.

Dobbies’ 150th celebrations included a Ladies Garden Party, where Sally-Anne handed out samples of her winning combination to customers. Sally-Anne comments: “I was thrilled that I won the competition. I chose the flavours as they were celebratory and having tasted the bar now it’s been made, I have to say it’s a real treat. It was wonderful to be able to give out samples at Dobbies’ event to see people enjoying my dream chocolate bar first-hand.”

A Dobbies spokesperson said: “Out of just under 1000 entries, we chose Sally-Anne’s nominated flavours as we felt it was a delicious combination. Strawberries are also really popular at this time of year, especially in the run-up to Wimbledon, and the champagne and popping candy really tickles the taste buds.”

Ian Dickons, from the chocolatier who worked on creating the bar said: “We had great fun creating Sally-Anne’s dream flavour and think it has the potential to become a summer favourite with Dobbies’ chocolate lovers.” 

Dobbies limited edition chocolate bar is on sale for £2.29 across all its 35 stores.
