I don’t care if the lady loves milk tray, she’s not getting a box of chocks from me. Not with that plastic wrapping, plastic cover sheet, plastic sweet tray and, to be honest, rather nasty chocolate.
Before you call me hard hearted there is a plastic free alternative.
There are shops out there selling British and Belgium chocolates loose. You can buy a separate, cardboard box to put them in or you could make your own packaging.
And there is always chocolate wrapped in foil and cardboard. Tescos do some wrapped in cardboard and foil.
Original Beans who sell their chocolate in certified compostable packaging.
If handing some one a big slab of chocolate seems a bit blunt, you could tart it up by turning it into something else. Check out the marbled minty things made by Jen.
Every time I have been to any of the above, they have had paper bags but you may want to take your own plastic-free bag to be sure.
