Webbs sees mad rush for personalised chocolates range

Christmas shoppers have been snapping up personalized chocolates at Webbs Garden Centre in Wychbold.

The Webbs Garden Centre in Wychbold is the first store in the country to pilot the range of chocolates, where customers can put together their own choice of names or words in up to seven letters or buy from the pre-packaged names selection for £3.50.

The chocolates from Halliganraby in Rubery, Birmingham were a top seller in the Webbs Food Hall last weekend, with 101 packets sold in two days.

Chief executive Boyd Douglas-Davies said:  "We’ve got lots more of the chocolates coming in as they have proved very popular with our customers.

"And we have seen people put together some interesting choices of words and names alongside the more popular ones – I’m sure they will be a very enjoyable surprise in lots of Christmas stockings this year."
