Chocs away for Oscars

HOLLYWOOD stars George Clooney and Rachel Weisz enjoyed a taste of Alderley Edge at the glittering Oscar celebration this week.

They relished their success . . . and then moved on to relish luxury chocolates supplied by a chocolatier from the Cheshire village.

As well as gold statuettes, the stars and their friends enjoyed gold-dusted chocs when treats supplied by the Chocolate Trading Company were dished out.

Winner and losers shared the red carpet treatment, tucking into the special chocolates, which were sprinkled with edible flakes of 22 carat gold leaf.

The 40 kilos of chocolates sent to Hollywood made up one of the company's most important orders so far.

Spokesman Christine Munro said: "A catering company from Hollywood placed the order and said that they were going to use them for the Oscars ceremony.

"So we sent them 20 cases of the chocolates about three weeks ago."

The chocolatiers have become used to winning large orders from the United States and managed to get the huge consignment there intact and on time by courier - within five days. And the chocs clearly went down a treat.

British actress and Oscar winner Rachel Weisz was spotted heading for the kitchen at the award ceremony, telling one TV interviewer: "Chocolate is what I want. That's my drug of choice for tonight."

There should have been no shortage to satisfy her craving . . . the Alderley Edge order was made up of more than 3,000 of the chocs.
