Sweet treat for care home residents during Chocolate Week

By 17th October, 2017 Press Releases No Comments

NATIONAL Chocolate Week has been celebrated at a Stockton on Tees care home with a special tasting session for residents.

The UK’s largest celebration of the sweet treat saw elderly residents at Ingleby Care Home dipping strawberries and marshmallows into a fountain of chocolate.

Resident Olive Smith said: “I just wanted one strawberry dipped in chocolate but it tasted so good I had a few more and a couple of marshmallows as well.”

Kirsty Walsh, activities coordinator at Ingleby Care Home, on Green Lane, said: “What could be more fun than Chocolate Week.

“The chocolate fountain was a huge hit as residents enjoyed dipping the strawberries in the melted chocolate.

“Everyone agree that strawberries are one of our five a day, so it was fine to indulge this once.”
