Milk Chocolate Trees!

Hotel Chocolat Blog revealed TODAY that they have devloped the worlds first Milk Chocolate tree by watering the cocoa trees with Milk!  However, this caused a problem with attracting cats (they say the mewing got them down, I think it is the stench of cat wee myself!) but the lactose intolerant dogs chased them away.  More details below about this exciting development.
Scientific Breakthrough – Milk Chocolate Cocoa Trees Developed at Rabot Estate

Chief Executive, Angus Thirlwell, said, “This is a much more efficient way to make milk chocolate and I’m delighted to reveal it to our customers first. There has only been one minor downside to date, but we think we may have overcome that problem already…”

Estates Director, Phil Buckley, who has been the driving force behind this huge step forward said, “It’s very quiet here in Saint Lucia during the off season, so we started experimenting to pass the time. Unfortunately, the rum-fed cocoa trees are looking a bit worse for wear, but the milk-fed trees have flourished.”

However, as already mentioned, there is a downside to watering cocoa trees with milk – the creamy aromas have attracted quite a number of cats to the estate.

Phil Buckley explains, “I’ve nothing against cats, but the mewing was driving us all mad. Luckily, it turns out our neighbour’s dogs are lactose intolerant, so they’re more than happy to chase the cats away. I’d like to say a big thank you to our neighbours up at the Poisson d’Avril Estate.”
