Did you know:
It takes a whole years crop from 1 cocoa tree to produce just 1lb of cocoa.
Over 60% of the worlds cocoa comes from Ghana and the Ivory Coast.
Cocoa butter gives that delicious 'melt in the mouth' feel because it melts at body temperature.

Hi my name is Daniele and I am a mother of two, Ethan is my first grandson and keeps me on my toes and now we have another Grandson Zachary who is a real sweetie. I am a store manager at Thorntons and no I don't eat chocs all day however we do try all the new ones its a hard job but someone has to do it. Our latest addition to the family is Milo, he is a bundle of fur and trouble rolled into one
Obviously card making and scrapbooking I only got into this after the birth of my grandson . Gardening, although this usually gets done by hubby now as I have too many pics to scrap,knitting and eating chocolate. My other passion is holidaying in Italy......such a beautiful country to visit.
