Comments (0)

A popular Lincolnshire flavour could be created in chocolate by famous chocolatier Thorntons.

Charlotte Jones, from Woodhall Spa, entered the Lincolnshire Plum Loaf flavour into Thorntons' Great Chocolate Britain competition that has been running over the summer.

Now, the people of Lincolnshire are urged to get voting to help the famous flavour top the East Midlands chart.

Thorntons has been calling for chocolate lovers across the country to submit their creations based on the flavours they think best represent their region.

From hundreds of entries across 11 regions of the UK, three flavours have been chosen per region by Thorntons chocolatiers and the public will now have the final say.

The Lincolnshire Plum Loaf, a milk chocolate with a mix of prunes, sultanas, spices and flavours of earl grey tea, is up against a dark chocolate made with heather honey and Derbyshire bilberry compote, plus a smooth milk chocolate with Nottingham Bramley apples.

The 11 finalists will be announced in the coming weeks.

One overall winner will be announced in October and as well as winning a year's supply of chocolate, the winning chocolate will be launched by Thorntons.
