Chocolate galore in Larnaca

With the weeks ahead filled with food, Larnaca is adding to the festive culinary indulgence with a festival dedicated to a weakness many of us succumb to; chocolate.

On December 21-23, the Myth Factory will be covered in this heart-warming delight, welcoming chocolate lovers ready to try the treat in a host of different ways.

In addition to stalls of professionals presenting and selling all the latest trends and tastes, chocolate face-painting will be offered for kids and adults, because we all know of the therapeutic advantages of chocolate on the skin. It’s not by chance that various spas around the world offer chocolate baths and massages. But whatever the reason, who wouldn’t want to be covered in chocolate?

Festival-goers will also be able to indulge in dripping chocolate fountains where they’ll be able to cover all sorts of treats in melted goodness.

Having a long battle with sugar and thinking to stay clear of the festival? Fear not. The festival has made sure to offer chocolate with stevia and more options for those that are fasting, so that no salivating mouths stay unsatisfied.

People on stilts will roam the Myth Factory entertaining children, while adults can enter raffles for free.

The organisers also note that the most important part of Larnaca’s Chocolate Festival 2018 is that a portion of the proceeds will be donated to a charity. Which one is yet to be decided. “The least we can do is to give, especially during these festive days of love,” say the organising team.
