Meet The Welsh Willy Wonka

When adventurous eaters want to put really weird tasting chocolate in their mouths they don't visit Willy Wonka, they visit Liam Burgess- the chocolate maker some are calling the Welsh Willy Wonka because of the bizarre flavors he comes up with.

Want to chew on a hunk of chocolate that tastes like an old book? Liam's got a chocolate bar for you that has all the flavor of an old leatherbound edition without all that pesky reading!:

“I’m not sure I want to put this in my mouth,” jokes the interviewer in the amusing clip below. Burgess reveals that ‘Old Book’ is made up of “leather essence, cigar tobacco, frankincense, patchouli, smoked sea salts” and maintains, “it smells [just] like an old book.”

Liam started his company NOMNOM Chocolate out of a camper on his mom's property at age 18, and now he has taken over "the Abandoned Chocolate Factory" in his hometown of Llanboidy and employs several of his friends full time.

And if you're keen to invest in Liam's wild chocolate adventure you can buy a "chocolate brick" in any flavor you'd like and help him build up his company brick by brick. And he does mean any flavor at all, because Liam and his team love a challenge!
