Look out for our three-metre long cabinet of Rocky Road temptations where you can pick and mix from 31 different flavours. The line up of hand made blocks of Rocky Road includes Caramelised Popcorn, Licorice Vanilla Bean, Bananarama White Choc, Orange Peel 72% Cocoa, Espresso Hazelnut, Mint Crisp and more…

Rocky Road devotees will be able to join our Rock Around the Block classes where an array of Rocky Road creativity awaits.
