These are my and my daughters favourite chocolates. I totally agree with you that sea salt chocolates are the best.
7 reviews of Rococo Chocolates in English
I love chocolate. And I love chocolate shops. And I particularly love visiting chocolate shops where I get to taste chocolate before I buy, and when I have a voucher to get the chocolate at an affordable price. Because if I have one problem with Rococo, it's the cost. Still, good chocolate costs money and it's one area that I'm willing to splash out on.
I visited a little before Christmas, and picked up three bars of chocolate - Arabic Spices, Raspberry and Ginger. All three were amazing, full of flavour but still tasting like good chocolate, not over sweet and very more-ish. The extremely helpful, very friendly man behind the counter let me try a few nibbles so I could decide which bars to choose - which was a godsend, given how many exciting flavours there were.
Although I only bought bars, I was sorely tempted by the other goodies in the shop, from yummy sounding truffle to beautiful chocolate art - my favourite was an impressive looking lobster!
Will I go back? Almost certainley - I can't resist a good chocolate shop, and this is definitely one of those!
Rococo Chocolates has some of the best chocolates and the loveliest shop too. Even their sugar free/diabetic chocolate is really good. And if I want to treat myself to a present, I buy a bag of their scorched almonds - well they're nuts, so that makes them healthy surely?! This shop is everything I could ask for from a chocolate shop, and just so much nicer than those awful high street chains.
I agree with everyone in about Rococo! To all chocolate laovers out there! This is the place! Try the sea salt and chocolate bar… one of my favourite! The combination of salty and sweet!!! hmmm… yummy yummy!

A wonderful treasure of a shop in the heart of Kings Road. The pleasure factor starts as soon as you walk-in here: visual and scented delights are all around in the compact space.
Owner, Chantal Coady, should probably take much of the credit for the real chocolate revolution in London. Since she showed us the truth about chocolate there has been no turning-back for many. Our palates have moved-on and grown-up (with the exception of some faithful CDM and Galaxy addicts).
This tiny piece of chocolate heaven has a tempting selection, enticingly displayed, from bags of 'grapes’ and other creative gift offerings to the fabulous in-house range of beautiful blue-and-white packaged artisan bars - infused with flavours that you may not even have dreamt of. The spice and floral dark, high cocoa-solid variants work really well and although they make for a pricey bar (£3.75 for 70g) the quality is wonderful - a small piece has a high satisfaction quotient; a little goes a long way and needs to be savoured slowly.
Probably not ideal to cross the premises when you’re on a food (or financial) diet; it’s a must visit when you’re in the area and deserve a sweet treat (for yourself or as a gift).
I convert everyone to my love affair with Rococo chocolates, giving them as gifts. I was so pleased when a new boutique opened near to me that stocks them as I can much easier get my supply of Champagne truffles and assortments… oh and the Jello love babes beat the cheaper well known brand by far.
When in London though, a visit to Rococo is a must, the place looks and smells like heaven. Their nougat lovely and fresh and the decorated chocolate animals make beautiful gifts.
If you are into your chocolate then Roccoco chocolates on King’s road will be right up your street. They sell their chocolates in all of the top shops like liberty and Selfridges. Their own shop is actually really tiny and old fashioned and has so many different chocolates to choose from. They are not cheap but you can buy as many or as few as you wish as they sell them loose at the counter. Their dark chocolate is really the best if you are into that sort of thing. Although I did buy a bar once that was 99% cocoa and that was like eating chocolate mixed with chalk, I guess it’s an acquired taste. But their scorched almonds are great as are their unusually flavoured artisan bars – geranium and orange flavour, chilli flavour – they make great little presents.
