Day Seven of the Brecon Beacons Advent Calendar

In a pickle and fancy a chocolate?

Did you know the Brecon Beacons is home to some great food makers including, a pickle maker and a prestigious chocolatier!  

We’re lucky enough to have a World class chocolate maker who’s situated in Crickhowell.  Black Mountain Gold Chocolate opened up a chocolatier shop in 2010, to share the art of Chocolate making. With the aim of putting Wales and the Brecon Beacons forever on the world map for Chocolate.
Master Chocolatier, Jules James brings a unique collection of flavours to his Chocolate. Which he has collected from his years working around the World in places such as Canada, Bali, New York, Dubai and Japan.

So how about, ditching your usual box of Cadburys milk tray and  instead indulging in some delicious local chocolates and truffles from Black Mountain Gold Chocolate.

You can also find a pickle maker in the Brecon Beacons.  Cowboy Pickles are based in Talybont-on-Usk, and they make some very unique pickled gherkins. Their gherkins are handmade, from an original Texan family recipe and offer a flavour that blends hot, spicy and slightly sweet.
For more information on how to get some please contact: or follow their Facebook page.
