Tune in to our Bond Theme bar

We couldn’t let the 50th anniversary of the James Bond films go by without a mention. Created on the eve of the launch of the latest Bond epic Skyfall we chose to focus on the signature tune. Lots of tuneless singing went into the making of this special Bond theme tune bar. Read it out loud to see if you think we’ve got it right!

Bar of the week – A tribute to Felix Baumgartner

It’s not every day that someone decides to do a 24 mile skydive – for fun. Our hearts were in our mouths as daredevil Felix Baumgartner fell to earth on 14th October 2012, especially when it looked like he was in a spin cycle of a washing machine initially. Felix we might think you’re a bit bonkers – but we salute you!

Watch his amazing leap here

Bar of the Week – Keep Your Chin Up

This bar was inspired by a rather unfortunate incident involving the founder or The Chocolate Library, a bicycle, a glass of wine, a cobbled road and a kerb. The result was a rather spectacular, acrobatic landing directly onto the chin. A small visit to A&E, much sniggering at Chocolate Towers and a new Bar of the Week was born.

An interesting fact to go with our Chin Up chocolate bar.. We had assumed that the origin of the phrase “Keep Your Chin Up” was something suitably wartime and British in the same vein as “Keep A Stiff Upper Lip”. It appears not. The first use seems to be in an American newspaper in 1900, under the heading Epigrams Upon the Health-giving Qualities of Mirth: “Keep your chin up. Don’t take your troubles to bed with you – hang them on a chair with your trousers or drop them in a glass of water with your teeth.” So there you go.
