Clive has worked at Castle Chocolates, Arundel for 28 years and for 25 of those he has been sporting this marvelous straw hat. The bowtie is also deliciously outstanding in my view - purchased secondhand in Brighton, apparently.
I hadn't been in the shop for more than a minute before Clive offered me a free chocolate - you don't get that sort of service from Amazon.
Clive recently passed on Castle Chocolates to his daughter but you just can't separate a true chocolatier from his chocolate - it's part of his DNA. Clive was back behind the counter today and still works there part time.
Castle Chocolates in Tarrant Street has a wonderful selection of fudge, chocolate, nougat, in fact everything we're told not to eat - well worth a visit!
