FATSO Dark Chocolate *

There’s a new dark chocolate bar in town and it is seriously chunky! Yes dark choc is getting a glow up thanks to FATSO which launched in March with three big 150g bars that have their own distinct personalities. I cannot talk about these bars without mentioning the name. Taking it lightheartedly it is fun, memorable and will get people talking. The packaging and design is sleek, eye-catching and importantly all is recyclable, even down to the compostable wrapping. Each bar uses the best cocoa from family-run Luker’s Farm in Colombia, as well as supporting an initiative that ensures sustainable development…

Eating Out at Piccolino Virginia Water

Located on London Road, Virginia Water, behind the walls of the very plain white looking Piccolino building is a restaurant that boasts an open kitchen, wine and cocktail bar and a substantial alfresco terrace. Having never eaten there it was a real treat to go for lunch for none other than my birthday. We sat in the alfresco terrance which features a fully retractable roof and heaters to ensure the ultimate alfresco experience rain or shine. The shade of Liz Earle blue the chairs were more like a comfortable sofa, there’s no surprise you could spend hours there. Menus galore there…
