Chatellerault and the Chocolate Factory!

Chatellerault hosted the Festival National du Chocolat this weekend. We went along today to see what it was all about. When we arrived and saw the number of cars already parked and the number behind us waiting for a space we began to suspect that this may be bigger and busier than we'd imagined!

4.50 Euros gave entry to another world!



There were chocolate creations of every kind, size and shape...




There were chocolate based liqueurs, wines, spreads, cakes and biscuits as well as chocolate tool kits and chocolate shirts and ties....... even a chocolate Kama-Sutra (we did get a picture but it is not blogable!)

 

There were chocolate sculptures...



and even chocolate inspired jewellery! (Jean take note!!)


All in all there was something for everyone and we came away having tasted enough chocolate to last us - well, till this evening at least!

Knew there was something else I wanted to do this weekend! Did the l'art & lard at Le Petit-Pressigny plus races at La Roche Posay so not so bad.So much on offer.

Sigh. We dropped someone off at the station in Chatellerault yesterday and opted not to go to the chocolate fest.
