Thorntons is synonymous with high quality, beautifully made, luxurious chocolate. Having been the nation’s go-to chocolatey treat for nearly 100 years, the brand is now recognised by a staggering 92% of consumers^.
The Art of Chocolate
The craft of making Thorntons chocolate begins with the humble cocoa bean. The beans are ripened, harvested, roasted, ground, mixed and tempered before being transformed into the mouth-watering treat we know and love.
Did you know?
The cocoa bean grows on a tropical tree called Theobroma Cacao – literally translated as ‘Food of The Gods’. The Aztecs are thought to have invented drinking-chocolate from cacao beans around 4000 years ago!
Chocolate Tasting Notes
With a texture like velvet and creamy after-notes, Thorntons luxurious hot chocolate is silky smooth and beautifully aromatic. Made from fine cocoa nibs, extracted from roasted cocoa beans and then ground to release their rich, full, truly decadent flavour.
