Who doesn’t love chocolate? One of the most popular foods in the world, chocolate is the ultimate comfort food, and certainly the best mood enhancer you can find in the groceries store. On those days you just need that little extra pick-me-up, in Brighton you are spoiled for choice. Here you will find some of our team’s the favorite chocolate-filled spots.
Audrey’s Chocolate Shop is the perfect treat and makes us feel like we have stepped back in time. And, to some extend, that’s true, as the chocolates are still made using the same recipes and the original moulds from when Audrey’s began in the 1960s! Located in a traditional four-storey Georgian house in Hove, the shop is full of pristine ornate boxes perfect for the good old-fashioned hearts out there. While the shop is on the ground floor, the whole production happens in the same building, from molding in the basement to a chocolate kitchen on the higher floors. They are famous for their rose and violet creams, crystallised peppermints and posh versions of fruit jellies. Their chocolates are made in small bashes using their own blend – and it shows in the flavour, as it is unique and cannot be purchased anywhere else. A must-try for all chocolate lovers in Brighton.
Choccy Woccy Doodah
Although most people wouldn’t vote it as the best tasting chocolate in Brighton, it is definitely top of the list for most creative! Their window displays are nothing short of amazing. The quirky style fits perfectly with Brighton and the Laines. They also do more than chocolates: their cakes are very impressive and the first floor of the shop hosts a tea room. It almost feels like you stepped into the Mad Hatter’s tea party. The brand gained so much recognition they have a shop in London who frequently receives famous guests (rumour has it, it used to be a favorite of Brad and Angelina). A perfect fit for those who might like their chocolate to think outside the box.
Julien Plumart Salon du Thé
If you are a fan of French deserts, this might be the shop for you. Local (and possibly UK) king of the macaron, Julien Plumart is a master of the elegant and refined deserts. The patisserie display rivals traditional french houses – it’s so pretty and colorful and just wonderful! It’s impossible to choose just one treat. We would say that if you are well-versed on Pierre Hermè, this might be just up your alley.
An award-winning West Sussex company, Montezumas quickly became a Brighton favourite. Their range includes truffles, buttons and even Christmas ornaments, but the true fans still swear by their classic bars. It’s also a great place to visit if you are looking for something unusual – chili and lime chocolate bar, anyone? They also have an awesome chocolate club, if you will be living in the UK for at least a few months.
Yeah, we know, it’s a candy shop. But it is also the perfect place to go looking for unusual imported sweets. There is a very good chance you can find your favorite chocolate from back home. Or, maybe, you want to try something a little more on the weird side… like, say, a bacon-flavored KitKat bar? Yeah, this is your best bet.
