Inspired by their travels across Europe in search of rich and delicate flavours, our chocolate makers have strived to tell the stories of evocative locations in every delicious bite within this much loved Continental range.
They’ve combined these influences with their passion and years of expertise to create these special recipes to share their taste journeys with British chocolate lovers. Since 1954, when the first continental assortment was created, their continuous pursuit of perfection means they have remastered and improved even further on these recipes using selected ingredients.
