The Gastro Travel Book by Marks and Spencer

Sound like a new summer read? You’d be wrong. The Gastro Travel Book by Marks and Spencer isn’t a book at all. Well not the sort with pages anyway. Marks and Spencer have come up with the great idea of an adventure in chocolates.

Each of the gourmet chocolates have centres which evoke warm sunny climates from the Mediterranean. We’ll talk you through each of the four varieties. You get three of each of the four varieties in the book.
