A taste of heaven awaits walkers who complete this food trail, which showcases some of the finest food producers in the Conway Valley. Top chefs encourage us to find out from where and how our food comes to be on the shop shelves. On this walk you will see sheep, chickens, geese and cattle, Snowdonia Range ready meals being prepared, Popty Pen Ucha range of baked products, and for the grand finale visit the Riverside Chocolate House and Tea Rooms, with hot chocolate drinks made from their own chocolate made on the premises: no powder, a selection of different spices and flavours similar to the syrups used in coffee and, of course their own chocolates made on the premises. Siop Pentre (the village shop) sells a full range of the local produce as well.
