Easter Eggs! Dairy free, egg free, gluten free, wheat free... but very chocolaty!

We have ooodles of options this year for those with allergies! So everybody can enjoy a yummy chocolate treat.

Here's a few options for you..

Cocoa's Chocolate hop

Although it's looking like Christmas today, in the warmth of Cocoa Spring has Sprung! To celebrate Easter (the most chocolatey time of the year) we are preparing for our first Ecclesall road 'Chocolate Hop' Easter hunt. (all the bunnies are talking about it)

 The idea first came about as we wanted something to unite the community around Ecclesall shops and celebrate the ones that aren't empty! So many have come and gone, we feel we need to remind people to shop locally so we can work together to build back the community round here. And why do that with chocolate!

 So we will start the hop on the 8th to the 12th April, between 10am- 5pm all day, let the Hop commence!

To take part in the fun, gather up your families, make your merry way down to Cocoa and pick up a game sheet. This will tell you all you need to know about the ‘Hop’. Work together to unscramble the clues around Ecclesall Road snooping in shop windows for the answers! (me and Kate in the sun before the snow, thanks Ian Smith                                for this pic)

When all the answers are solved you are invited back to Cocoa to exchange your answer sheet for a chocolate bunny and one lucky                 family will win a gigantic 4kg chocolate egg! 

                                           It's free to play.
                 Donations will be accepted and any profits will go to

                Suggested dress code: Bunny Attire
                Hopping is encouraged throughout
                All children must be accompanied by an adult

Here are Cocoa ladies Beth & Evie working the bunny look.

Hope to see you there!
