Two north Kent farmers have taken a step out of chef Heston Blumenthal's book by creating their very own delicacy - chocolate -overed sprouts!
Brothers John (centre) and Mark Harris, owners of Broadditch Farm in Southfleet, have teamed up with a bakery in New Ash Green to launch the unusual treat dubbed 'Chocolate Trussels.'
They had the idea after Mark's six-year-old son Charlie began pushing his Brussels sprouts around his plate at his Christmas dinner.
After discussing ways of encouraging children to eat the vegetable with their local bakery, the idea was born.
A selection of Trussel flavours including white and milk chocolate as well as caramel fudge will be available from the farm shop on Saturday, February 4.
John said: "Personally I think they are great but I would say that. I think as you get older you get more accustomed to sprouts.
"Hopefully people will try one just to say they have done it. Its's just a bit of a fun, maybe even a few loved ones could be getting them for Valentines.
