Christmas Gift Collection 2015

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and our online boutique is full of festive treats and gift ideas.

For a classic Christmas gift, why not give our Christmas Chocolate Collection? There’s three box sizes to choose from, all handmade and filled with festive flavours including clementine & clove caramels, Irish cream & nutmeg and cinnamon praline.

The past few weeks

This poor blog has been very unloved over the past few weeks, so here’s a bumper picture post showing what we’ve been up to & where we’ve been.

Frodsham Market 22/05/2015
Set up at Chester Uni with our lovely new banner for the last Chester Food Fest until September. Just taking a moment for a bit of stall browsing before the lunch time rush! We had lots of beautiful marshmallows, chocolate bars, and handmade chocolates with us, alongside boxes of dark chocolate dipped candied fruit.

Markets, Mallows & More….

We have recently started working with the food scientists at NoWFood Chester University, testing a selection of our products for things like shelf life, so hopefully soon you will be able to find them popping up on a few shelves in the future. We have therefore been invited to the monthly Food Fest, held in the small hall of Chester University from 11am-2.30pm, and will be there this coming Friday (24th April), followed by our usual West Kirby Farmers’ Market on Saturday 25th April.

Egg-citing events ahead

Thank you to everyone who visited us at West Kirby Farmers’ Market last Saturday, it was great to see the market so busy! There were lots of Easter gifts being purchased – hope everyone enjoys them next weekend.

With the Sun finally making an appearance, we welcomed two new summery additions to our marshmallow range – mango & passion fruit, and mandarin & Cointreau. As always our mallows are made with only natural ingredients, and the colour comes from real fruit juices and purees. It was funny to watch what started out as a bright orange mandarin mixture whip up to an almost pure white mallow. Just to confuse you (and us!).

4 flavours of fluffy mallows – Mandarin & Cointreau, Raspberry & Rose, Mango & Passion Fruit, and Milk Chocolate Swirl

Hopping our way to Market

We were out braving the cold in Altrincham Market last weekend, but kept warm by good coffee and good company from the other traders.

We’re very happy to report that we are moving back indoors this weekend, and are in equally lovely company at West Kirby Farmers’ Market. If you’ve been keeping track of our ever growing Easter collection, we will have the entire range on offer at West Kirby, alongside our usual confectionery. We also have some new marshmallow flavours for you to try, and our very popular milk chocolate dipped honeycomb is back, alongside our latest creation – “Hot Cross Buns”.

“Hot Cross Buns” – Spiced almond marzipan studded with vine fruits and candied orange, enrobed in creamy milk chocolate with a white chocolate cross. Tastes just like a hot cross bun, only better!

So if you’re looking for handmade eggs, or something a bit different for Easter this year, make sure you catch us from 9am-1pm on Saturday 28th in St Andrew’s Church Hall, Graham Road, West Kirby CH48 5DE. You can also pre-order all of our Easter products for collection from the market, get in touch if you would like to place an order.

Easter and Mother’s Day 2015

This time last year, we had only just started up, and Easter came and went without us being able to do much about it, so it has been great fun playing around with our range for this year!
