One of my highlights of 2010 was having a Thorntons factory tour but also getting the opportunity to have a good chat with their Master Chocolatier Keith Hurdman who is not only a fanstastically talented chocolatier, but also an absolutely fantastic bloke too!
Keith was brought in to bring Thorntons into the 21st century and increase the appear of the brand to a younger generation. I’d say he’s done a grand job. Thorntons have introduced their blocks which include some single origin lines as well as some flavours that many may not be familiar with such as their tonka bar. Keith has also introduced the new Thorntons Continentals which are outstanding value for money.
