Made in Cumbria brings you a selection of the finest artisan confectioners and chocolatiers in Cumbria and the Lake District. Handmade chocolate and sweets have been a feature of Cumbrian life for hundreds of years and is an industry that is still thriving today. The arrival of sugar and cocoa imports from South America and the West Indies at the West Coast seaports of Whitehaven, Maryport and Workington ensured plentiful supplies to our artisan confectioners and chocolatiers. This allowed for the creation of some the most delectable and indulgent sweet treats to be made right here in loving kitchens across Cumbria. The deep-rooted passion for creating these tempting treats has been passed on through generations and many traditional family recipes are still being used by traditional confectioners and chocolatiers in Cumbria.
