National Chocolate Week has been celebrated at a Stockton on Tees care home with a special tasting session for residents.
The UK’s largest celebration of the sweet treat saw elderly residents at Ingleby Care Home dipping strawberries and marshmallows into a fountain of chocolate.
Resident Olive Smith said: “I just wanted one strawberry dipped in chocolate but it tasted so good I had a few more and a couple of marshmallows as well.”
Kirsty Walsh, activities coordinator at Ingleby Care Home, on Green Lane, said: “What could be more fun than Chocolate Week.
“The chocolate fountain was a huge hit as residents enjoyed dipping the strawberries in the melted chocolate.
“Everyone agree that strawberries are one of our five a day, so it was fine to indulge this once.”
