London was looking it's best under glorious sunshine and blue sky. The big surprise was not the chocolate show but Borough Market. On previous visits we'd missed this spectacle and what a feast of autumnal colours and delicacies were set before us.
Borough Market it was packed to the rafters with masses of people just moving about admiring, tasting and photographing everything. In fact I almost could not believe that I was in an English market. Brilliant!

Onwards to Chocolate Unwrapped at Vinopolis! There seemed to be more vendors there this year including several new ones which was good to see. These were just some of the companies that we saw and sampled: Paul A Young; Duffy; Akesson's from Sweden; Paul Wayne Gregory; Pacari; Ecuador ChocoFest; Chococo; Chocolate and Love; The Chocolate Lover's Wine; chocoMe from Hungary; Rococo and so many more! After two hours we'd had our full of chocolate and these are just some of the bars we purchased.
If you have time tomorrow this is well worth a visit and great experience for novices as you can taste as much chocolate as you like! There is also a program of talks and demonstrations throughout the day.
