Our Story

The Lick the Spoon Story…

Founded by husband and wife team Diana and Matthew Short the Lick the Spoon story has many influences… from the early days of the Bristol Chocolate industry to the heady nostalgia of the Hyde Park hotel in the 1950s.

Add in a rusty moped stranded in the South of France, time spent as a Madonnari, a sprinkling of quirkiness and an unquenchable desire to create delicious chocolates that look as good as they taste, a Spoon Mobile and you’ll start to get the picture!

Our chocolates have been enjoyed by two Prime Ministers, members of the Royal family, and the stars of television, film, and West End Shows. A small family run business that connects closely with cocoa farmers and chocolate makers in Madagscar and supporters of Raisetrade.
