After recently visiting Brussels, home to a plethora of Belgian chocolate shops, on returning home my chocoholic tendencies were in a state of deprivation until I heard on the grapevine of a new chocolate shop having opened in Didsbury. Reassuringly bucking the trend of vendors shutting up shop to sell online, the owner of Cocoacobana found her website so popular that she decided to open up a ‘real’ store.
Selling a saliva-inducing selection of handmade white, milk and dark chocolates, it is chocolate-lovers heaven, with all items beautifully wrapped, making them look almost too good to eat. Only almost though!
With late night opening on Thursday’s until 21:00 I have no excuse not to nip down and get my chocolate fix (naturally justifying it as being for Christmas or birthday presents!). I’m particularly partial to the orange flavoured chocolates, but there are also more adventurous options to try such as basil flavoured truffles, all out on display making it very hard to resist!
