PIN & KEEP FOR LATER
Whilst I was doing research into my favourite chocolate themed movies, I realised that there are essentially two groups of these films. Some films have a chocolate as their main theme ( for example the film is set in a chocolate shop) and some films whilst they do have a ‘chocolate’ in their name, the chocolate itself is a metaphor for something else and the film has nothing to do with chocolate.
I’ve focused on the first group of films that have an actual chocolate theme running through the film, but at the end of this blog post you’ll also find a list of all the films (I could find) with ‘chocolate’ in the name (but no chocolate story line).
In this blog post, we’ve compiled a list of the best chocolate-themed movies that will satisfy your sweet tooth and your cinematic cravings. So, grab your favourite chocolate bar and let’s dive into a world of chocolatey goodness on the big screen.
And don’t forget to tell us what’s your favourite chocolate treat when going to the cinema or watching a film or box set at home. I’m sure there are loads more I forgot to mention, so let me know in the comments below.

CHOCOLATE FUN FACTS
What’s your favourite chocolate treat when you go to the cinema or settle down at home to watch a film? With me, it’s a Bounty because after I’ve licked away the chocolate, I can silently slowly chew the coconut to enjoy the flavour and try to make the bar last as long as possible. A Crunchie bar, on the other hand, is just too, well crunchy, and every bite can be heard three rows back.
Buying my favourite chocolate snack bar and candy to enjoy a film or tv programme got me thinking about my favourite movies. For many of us, the cinema experience just isn’t complete without diving down into a bag of Revels or Minstrels whilst staring up at the big screen at the same time.
And then that got me thinking about those movies that feature chocolate in one way or another in the film, itself.
There may be a film out there called Chocolate Heaven (I’ve resisted the temptation to google it to find out) but in the meantime, here’s my own personal list (in no particular order) of chocolate at the movies. When chocolate moves from the back seats and up to the big screen for a starring role.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971) and the remake Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in 2005, starring Johnny Depp, would be most people’s starting point when researching chocolate-themed films.
‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” is a 2005 musical fantasy film directed by Tim Burton, based on the novel of the same name by Roald Dahl.
The movie is about a young boy named Charlie Bucket who dreams of winning a golden ticket that will grant him access to Willy Wonka’s mysterious chocolate factory. When Charlie finds a ticket, he and four other children are given a tour of the factory, which is full of fantastical inventions and magical chocolate and sweet treats. As the tour progresses, the children are each eliminated due to their own vices and poor behaviour, leaving only Charlie to inherit the factory.
The film explores themes of imagination, morality, and the power of childhood wonder. The movie received mixed reviews upon its release, with some critics praising the performances and visual effects, while others found it too dark and lacking in charm compared to the original film.
Author Roald Dahl apparently never really liked the original film, starring Gene Wilder. But what’s there not to like about sailing on a chocolate river through an edible candy garden where even the grass tastes delicious? Chocolate cow any one?
The chocolate river in the film was made of 192,000 gallons of water mixed with chocolate and cream. It was so thick that it had to be heated to prevent it from solidifying.
Director Tim Burton’s later version was more favourably received by critics, although by then Dahl had departed to his own chocolate heaven. Either film has enough sweet moments for all the family.
The film’s budget was $150 million, making it one of the most expensive films ever made at the time.
Chocolat (2005) was critically acclaimed by both back seat pic n mixers as well as the most fastidious chocolate truffle critic. In the film, chocolate serves as a metaphor for guilt, lust and temptation all rolled into one.
Juliette Binoche is the newcomer in a small provincial post war French town, whose arrival to open a chocolate shop during Lent proves too much for the strict mayor (Alfred Molina).
With Johnny Depp as the mysterious river boat stranger, it’s a sensual feast for the eyes and a mouth-watering chocolate treat for the lips. The scene where Johnny licks his fingers while Juliette guesses his favourite chocolate is a classic. What’s your favourite?
Like Water for Chocolate (1992)
Talking of mouth-watering moments, leads me to cast my vote for Like Water for Chocolate (1992) or Como Agua Para Chocolate, to give it, it’s actual Spanish title.
This Mexican film is a story of three daughters – the youngest Tita is forbidden to marry and must look after her mother. Instead her lover, Pedro is forced to marry her oldest sister Rosaura, but only to stay close to Tita.
The two connect through Tita’s cooking and her ability to make other feel the way she does when she prepares the daily meals. It’s earthy and magical at the same time without ever being sentimental. Definitely bitter sweet but worth savouring every bite along the way.
Chocolate plays a significant role in the film “Like Water for Chocolate.” The main character, Tita, is a skilled cook who uses chocolate in many of her recipes. Throughout the film, chocolate is used as a metaphor for passion and sensuality, and it is often shown to have magical properties that affect the emotions and behaviours of those who consume it. The film features several scenes in which chocolate is prepared and eaten, and its significance is woven into the fabric of the story.
