Welcome to POD Chocolate Experiences

From the Governments advise I can now (from Monday 17th May) start doing my Chocolate Experiences. I can come to your house and host a experience up to six people or two households inside.

 

I will be putting safe measures in place so you need not be worried, keeping you and myself safe and there will be sanitiser gel available to use too.

 

I will be wearing a face mask or visor, gloves and keeping my distance. Hopefully after Monday 21st June I will be able to host larger numbers if all goes well with the road map out of Covid. 

 

I have a variety of experiences for all occasions to choose from, including experiences for children, teens and adults.  These private parties can be hosted at your house or perhaps a local Village Hall – providing there is a table, fridge & freezer, I can provide the rest! 

 

You may be thinking of new ideas for Birthday Parties, Hen-do’s, and one to ones etc. and I can also offer to host Corporate events. 

 

Choose an experience you would like and then contact me with your details.  If anyone has an allergy, i.e. nuts, dairy or are vegan, dark chocolate is always available as an alternative, so please make sure you let me know.  I am based in West Oxfordshire. 

 

Below you will find a selection of experiences on offer.
