GNAW sets people's chocolate challange

Innovative Norwich chocolate maker Gnaw is challenging the general public to come up with four exciting new flavours for a brand new range of 50g chocolate bars.

Gnaw owner, Matt Legon, said: “Our chocolate is fun, original, and we have created a host of imaginative flavours such a Lemon Meringue, Banoffee Pie and Chilli & Lime! We want the new 50g bars to be just as enticing - so we thought we would run a competition to ask the region’s chocolate-loving public to put on their creative thinking caps and come up with some funky new flavours.”
