Great Taste Gold Awards 2016
We’re delighted to have won three Great Taste Gold Awards at the Guild of Fine Food Great Taste Awards 2016! Judged by over 500 of the most demanding palates belonging to food critics, chef, cooks, restrauranteurs and producers as well as a whole host of food writers and journalists.
From over 10,000 entries only 2520 were awarded a 1-star Gold accolade. The panel of judges this year included TV chef Valentine Warner, Master Chef judge Charles Campion and baker Tom Herbert.
We won golds for our Dark Chocolate Hot Chocolate Lickable Spoon, Peanut Caramel Chocolate Salami and Strawberry and Balsamic Caramels.
The judges said of our Dark Chocolate Hot Chocolate Lickable Spoon
Warming and very indulgent, lingering character. The stirring spoon is part of the relaxing ritual.
Of our Peanut Caramel Chocolate Salami the judges said
smooth rich chocolate flavour, good crunchy peanuts, little caramel bites and some vanilla warmth. The shape and the presentation are innovative.
Our Strawberry and Balsamic caramel features in our mixed chocolate collections and fresh chocolate counters. The judges said
Lovely looking chocolates with a lovely crisp outer shell. A stunning sheen with a pink hue, a thin crisp shell, well tempered, delicious smooth ganache, a fresh strawberry zing, long complex chocolate to finish.
We’re delighted to have won three Gold awards! We chose to enter chocolates into the 2016 awards that we haven’t entered into awards before. It’s nice to always challenge ourselves!
