Choc O’Clock: Myth Busting

Due to popular demand, we’re launching a new show in our ‘Choc O’Clock’ live series, Myth Busting!

Here at Cocoa Runners, we’re on a mission to show  you how craft chocolate is not only better for you, but better for the farmers and so much better for the planet. But to do so, we need to address some common chocolate myths and misconceptions. Head to our Instagram page @cocoarunners every Thursday at 4pm and our Facebook at 3.30pm for a live 10 minute show and chocolate bar tasting. Purchase your chocolate kit before Tuesday noon to take part in the next session.
