About
From the 1930s through to the 1980s, as Britain endured war, depression, hardship and strikes, the women at the Rowntree's factory kept the chocolate coming. This is the true story of The Sweethearts, the women who roasted the cocoa beans, piped the icing and packed the boxes that became gifts for lovers, snacks for workers and treats for children across the country.

More often than not, their working days provided welcome relief-an escape from difficult husbands and poor housing-and a community where they could find new confidence, friendship and (when the supervisor wasn't looking) the occasional chocolate.

Whether in wartime or peace, these enduring tales show the true resilience of women in the hardest of times.
