Choccywoccydoodah – The ultimate indulgence for Londoners is to take a trip to Carnaby Street to visit Choccywoccydoodah. Indulging in chocolate can be a bit much in the Summer but come Winter, there’s nothing like a cheeky hot chocolate from the people who really know what they’re doing with our favourite sweets.
