Samples are few - 1 quality street choc - no choice - take it or leave it. Rushed round really - max nos in party - only good part was the chocolatier demo - again 1 choc to try. If you thought about doing this for something to do on a rainy day you would be better spending the money in the pub!!!. Toilets were a disgrace - came out with what felt like half a roll of toilet paper attached to my foot!!!! Staff were enthusiastic though... but we still felt done!
