Scarborough chocolatier gears up for National Chocolate Week 2017

Chocoholics in Scarborough should be prepared for seven days of total indulgence during National Chocolate Week at one of the town’s best-known chocolatiers.

Amelia’s Chocolate, whose retail outlet and workshop are in Victoria Road, is holding a number of events from 9th to 15th October celebrating the nation’s favourite sweet treat.

Amelia said: “National Chocolate Week is always a busy week for us and chocolatiers around the country will be showing off their wares!”

Amelia, who started her business from her kitchen table back in 2011, underwent a life-saving heart transplant at Great Ormond Street Hospital aged just 15 back in 2002, following the news that she had Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy. Amelia said: “The heart transplant saved my life; it really was a gift of life.”


Amelia opened her popular chocolate shop in the seaside town in 2013 and is one of Scarborough’s most best-known businesses.

Amelia added: “All our chocolate is made with love, care and passion. For National Chocolate Week, we have a packed week planned, including a Chocolate Baking Contest, Hot Chocolate sessions, a Chocolate Quiz Night, a chance to taste chocolate from around the word, and there’s even a Chocolate and Beer Tasting Night!”
