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.
