A deliciously high-end chocolate stall has opened in St Stephen's

By Hull Daily Mail | Posted: 13 Nov 2017

An award-winning, reality-warping chocolate stall has opened in Hull, giving shoppers the chance to grab high-end cocoa Christmaspresents right in the city centre.

The Chocolate Workshop prides itself on being “purveyors of mind-bending chocolate oddities”, and has set up its newest stall under the pod in St Stephen’s Shopping Centre.

Usually seen in places such as Meadowhall, King’s Cross Station and Manchester, it is a huge coup for the shopping centre’s team.

A spokeswoman for the shopping centre said: “It is really exciting that The Chocolate Workshop have decided to come to St Stephen’s, and it shows just how much the centre is changing.

“This is an upmarket brand and something we have never had before. It really reflects the direction in which St Stephen’s wants to go.

“It is a pop-up and it will hopefully set the trend for more high-end pop-ups to come to Hull.”

The highly skilled chocolatiers from Nottingham create hyper realistic everyday objects out of chocolate, which includes garden tools, digital cameras, pasta cutters and even cheese and graters.

In fact, the store’s website is even broken down into categories like food and drink, tools and DIY, home and garden and also hobbies and craft.

With prices starting from £5.50 for small gift boxes and up to £50 for life-like vintage irons, there seems to be no end to the items The Chocolate Workshop can create.

Each item lasts up to six months, and is made using 64 per cent chocolate. They are all vegetarian and vegan, palm oil free, and the rust-effects are used using special types of cocoa dust.

The stall will be staying in St Stephen’s until Boxing Day.
