Welsh Chocolate / ChocoDragon believes you can't beat the taste of handmade chocolate. ChocoDragon is Wales premiere place for luxury handmade chocolates. All our handmade chocolates contain only the finest of ingredients. Because they are handmade fresh to order, they do not contain the things that have to be added when chocolates are mass produced and kept for a long time. We can guarantee that your handmade chocolate has been produced JUST FOR YOU!
We have delicious chocolate bars, animal shaped chocolate, hearts, chocolate lollipops, chocolate shoes, chocolate love spoons, chocolate rugby balls and that’s just to mention a few. There are even chocolate boxes filled with chocolate so you can eat the entire gift!
We have a wide selection of favours from our range of chocolates, to gift boxes you can eat and ribbons ideal for weddings and parties. We can supply you with gifts and luxury chocolates for all occasions from Anniversaries, Birthdays, Wedding Favours, Halloween, Easter, Christmas, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.
Luxury & Quality Handmade Chocolates
It is not difficult to tell fine handmade chocolates from mass produced ones; it’s all in the taste. We at ChocoDragon are very passionate and enjoy chocolate and believe that chocolate should be eaten for enjoyment and therefore should taste and smell as good as it looks.
In order to get the best tasting chocolate, chocolate needs to be made with the finest ingredients and needs to be real chocolate, not artificial chocolate that many of the cheaper brands of chocolate use. Therefore, we at ChocoDragon strive to offer a large range of luxury chocolate gifts for parties, weddings, and personalised chocolate, so you can really treat yourself
We aim to make chocolate that is luxurious and tastes wonderful. We use the finest Belgium chocolate to make our wonderful creations, giving you luxury at reasonable prices. All our handmade products are made from sustainably grown cocoa beans.
Handmade Wedding Favours
Choco Dragon is a family-run business and online shop that specialises in luxury chocolate wedding favours. All our wedding favours are made using a special blend of Belgian chocolate.

Inigo Jones Slateworks
Telephone: 01286 830 242
Address: Inigo Jones & Co Ltd, Tudor Slate Works, Y Groeslon, Caernarfon, Gwynedd, LL54 7UE
Inigo Jones Slate Works was founded in 1861 primarily to prefabricate school writing slates, when school writing slates were replaced by paper, the company had to find new products. The owner at the time, Hugh Jones, started producing electrical panels in slate. These proved to be very popular and the company rapidly expanded, sourcing its slate from the whole of North Wales.
The slate was enamelled and this was a slow, laborious process as the slate had to be baked in ovens for over 48 hours. Thousands of electrical slate panels were produced at Inigo Jones Tudor Slate Works. The world famous Queen Mary, Mauritania and the Queen Elizabeth luxury liners all had panels from these works. The original slate panels supplied to the Queen Mary can still be seen in Long Beach, California where the liner is now a tourist attraction.
As cheaper man-made products replaced slate for electrical panels, the company diversified into slate fireplaces, the majority of these fireplaces were enamelled and many of them also included hand painted local scenes. An original fireplace supplied in the late 19th century is currently on display as part the company's self guided tour.
Over the years the company has supplied slate memorials and it still continues to do so. Technology has moved on however, and letters are now either machine cut or sand blasted as this is far quicker than the traditional hand letter cutting.
More recently the company has supplied more slate for domestic use and these include such things as flooring, kitchen work tops and hearths. Also for the home, craft products have proved popular and these include such things as wall plaques, clocks, lamps, wine racks, place mats and mirrors. Several products shown above are ideal as unique Welsh wedding favours.
