New Hot Chocolate Lickable Spoons launched!

We’re delighted to announce that our new, award winning Hot Chocolate Lickable Spoons ® range is now available! Hurrah!

Press Release – Corsham, Wiltshire – immediate Release.

Award winning Chocolatier Lick the Spoon has launched its new updated range of Hot Chocolate Lickable Spoons ® for 2016. Hot Chocolate Spoons have been a feature of Lick the Spoon’s chocolate range since their launch in 2006. Now in their 10th year the company has updated the range to beautiful new locally crafted packaging designed by Lick the Spoon’s Creative director Diana Short and illustrated by artist Stephanie Cole.

Diana explained…

We wanted to create packaging that captured the essence of our story as an artisan British chocolatier using Raisetrade chocolate from the island of Madagascar. Stephanie’s hand drawn illustrations seamlessly pull together these two aspects of Lick the Spoon in a playful, stylish manner. We have worked closely with our local packaging manufacturer and printers, all located right here in Corsham. The result is a beautiful piece of sustainable, functional packaging that also has great shelf appeal and reflects Lick the Spoon perfectly.

As part of the redesign Lick the Spoon reduced the packaging from a three piece plastic and paper pack to a fully recyclable single piece of card packaging with a bio-degradable window. The popular Hot Chocolate Spoon recipes remain unchanged but the savings made on reducing packaging materials have been passed on to the customer with the twin pack product weight being increased from 50g to 70g.

Diana elaborates…

Our customers told us that they loved our hot chocolate spoons and there was no need to change the recipe but we wanted to make sure that they delivered a good, rich chocolaty hit. We even researched average mug sizes in the process of deciding the perfect weight of chocolate for each spoon!  The improved design of our new packaging allows us to pack more efficiently. So it’s win, win… beautiful packaging and a richer hot chocolate with no price increase.

The Hot Chocolate Lickable Spoons® are available in four flavours – Dark Chocolate 75% cocoa, Milk Chocolate 40% cocoa, Salted Caramel and Milk Chocolate and Marshmallow.

The Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate Spoons have recently won a Silver award at the Taste of the West awards 2016. The Caramel chocolate topping is made from Lick the Spoon’s Bronde® chocolate, (a gold award winner in its own right!) made from scratch and refined in small batch stone grinders.Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate Lickable Spoon
