Stephenson’s Rocket was designed by Robert Stephenson in 1829 and built at the Forth Street Works of his company in Newcastle upon Tyne. The Rocket was an early steam locomotive of 0-2-2 wheel arrangement. It was built for and won the Rainhill Trials of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway, held in October 1829 to show that improved locomotives would be more efficient than stationary steam engines.

Our taste test:

The Stationmaster says:

“Break off a single square and pop it in your mouth. Close your eyes and settle down into your chair. At first, the citrus flavours dominate with a fresh clean feeling that lifts the dark chocolate taste. As soon as the dark cocoa comes to the fore however, the popping starts. The person sitting opposite, 2m away, looks out the window. They think its hailstones bouncing off the paving outside. It isn’t. Your Rocket has just popped!”
