Care home residents get sweet treat for Chocolate Week

Residents and staff at Ingleby Care Home got stuck into some homemade sweet treats to celebrate National Chocolate Week.

Residents rolled up their sleeves to make chocolate covered rice crispy cakes and fruit and marshmallow kebabs, which they enjoyed dipping into a chocolate fountain.

Margaret Salmon, a resident at the home based in Stockon-on-Tees, said: “I thoroughly enjoyed myself eating the chocolate coated kebabs – I had four helpings so I was feeling a bit guilty. But, then I thought chocolate or not, the kebabs are mostly fruit so they must be just a little bit good for me.”

Activities coordinator at Ingleby Care Home, Kirsty Walsh, said: “Everyone loves chocolate week and the residents had a great time mixing up cakes and sharing them with each other over a cup of coffee.

“One resident in particular got very involved, and appointed herself as quality monitor by checking that everything tasted delicious before it was dished out. Care home residents get sweet treat for Chocolate Week

“We all decided that as it was chocolate week, calories don’t count.”

Chocolate Week ran from 15 to 21 October, with events around the UK, aiming to celebrate the country’s chocolatiers and encourage consumers to pay a fairer price.
