The team behind Snog frozen yogurt has launched three festive hot chocolate pop ups across London this winter, reinventing childhood favourites for adult tastes.
The Beltane&Pop bars will be located at Chiswick House, Hyde Park Winter Wonderland and Southbank Centre over the coming months.
Customers can choose from eight luxurious chocolates , ranging in strengths, leading onto a choice of impeccable toppings such as gourmet marshmallow or piedmont hazelnuts, completed with a choice of distinctive liqueurs such as black cherry, amaretto, ginger and Irish Cream.
Each drink is created from a single batch, single origin pure hot chocolate to give a truly intense cacao hit, and are created by expert bartenders to offer a creative, personalised experience.
Founder Tristan Pestana said: "Our name embodies what we’re all about: Beltane is taken from the old English word for Mayday, a traditional time for celebration, and Pop describes the excitement we want to create for our guests.
"We hope our reinvention of childhood favourites for adult tastes brings back an element of whimsical fun and enjoyment for everyone who pays us a visit."
It’s not just about the chocolate though: each of the bars also host a collection of boozy and British hot toddies from Beltane&Pop, created from a secret recipe, including a magical mulled wine, enticing spiced cider and warming hot whisky.
