Producers - Guppy's Chocolates
Abandoning the financial services sector, Peter and Fran Guppy now exude an irresistible passion for chocolate. Guppy’s Chocolates has outgrown the family kitchen where the business began in 2010 and the garage in which it first expanded. Now Guppy’s occupies an industrial unit that outwardly is far from the idealised artisan food production space. But, once the door is opened there is no doubt that the alchemy of artisan-made chocolate is alive and well.
Yorkshire Food Finder has indulged with Guppy’s chocolate for some while and we are inspired to try different flavours and styles of chocolates made by Guppy’s within the City of York. Our favourites are the dark chocolate shards and truffles. Like us, we think that once tried you will be hunting down your nearest of more than 50 stockists of Guppy’s delightful chocolate.
The artisan chocolate maker that is Guppy’s is very much at home in York with Rowntree, now Nestlé, and Terry’s having established a chocolate making tradition in York. Getting the chance to compare the hand-made chocolates from Guppy’s and the modern manifestation of chocolates produced on an industrial scale is, we think, no contest.
