From the 1930s through to the 1980s, as Britain endured war, depression, hardship and strikes, the women at the Rowntree's factory in York kept the chocolates 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 work days provided welcome relief from bad husbands and bad housing, and a community where they could find new confidence, friendship and, when the supervisor wasn't looking, the occasional chocolate.
