Introducing World Chocolate Guide…

Posted by in Chocolate News on October 28 2010 | Leave A Comment

It’s not often I get to write about my own projects here, but today is a bit special. We’re launching the World Chocolate Guide, a brand new site produced jointly with Jennifer Earle of Chocolate Ecstasy Tours.

We’ve taken on the not inconsiderable task of finding, cataloguing and mapping every chocolate shop and patisserie in the world. More importantly, wherever possible we’ll be visiting these shops for ourselves, taking photos and giving our opinions.

But we’re going to be relying on readers – chocolate lovers like you – for much of the content on the site. You can leave comments on your favourite (or least favourite!) shops and rate them out of ten. The best shops will then appear in our Top Rated section. And if we’ve missed a shop that you think we should know about, then we want to hear about it.

As well as talking about the shops themselves, we’re also featuring the people behind them and the brands of chocolate they sell. Our unique search feature means that you can search the globe for your favourite chocolate, and have the results displayed on an interactive map.

We’ve got lots more features in the pipeline, but the 200 or so shops we’re launching the site with should be enough to start you out. We’d love to know what you think.

  2. Wow, I had no idea this was being worked on. Had you mentioned it elsewhere on this site?

    Very cool idea.

    Rodzilla: No, we’ve been working on it a few months, but hadn’t mentioned it to anyone beyond a few testers.

    Hallelujah! I’ve been waiting for somebody to do this for years. Great job and fabulous to see WordPress hard at work.
