York is home to some big names in the chocolate industry, Rowntrees created Kit Kat, Smarties and Aero, whilst Terrys created the Chocolate Orange and the rich dark All Gold collection. The boom of the railway brought movement to the city and helped ship products around the country, making Terrys and Rowntrees household names. Join us on our tasting evenings as we discover York's chocolate heritage of days gone by whilst learning how chocolate is made and tasting rare and exotic chocolates from around the world. Our tasting evenings take place in the gorgeous setting of the Mansion House, the official residence of The Lord Mayor of York, one of these was Joseph Terry, who took on the role 4 times and must have entertained greatly in the house in his day!
