We’re over the moon to have won a record Eleven Gold Awards and a Silver award at the Taste of the West Awards 2021 – patron H.R.H Prince Charles.
In what’s been a challenging year we decided to ‘go big’ this year and enter twelve products including all of our new Easter Egg range.
In the Chocolate Category we won awards for….
Half & Half Milk Chocolate Easter Egg with Peanuts and Pretzels. Salted Caramels and Peanut Truffles – GOLD
Liqueur Cherry Chocolates – GOLD
Blackcurrant Ganache – GOLD
Half & Half Dark Chocolate Easter Egg – Dark 75% & Dark & Raspberry with Rose and Violet Creams – GOLD

and in the Vegan Category we won awards for…

Vegan Chocolates Collection – GOLD
Half & Half Vegan Chocolate Easter Egg – Cashew Milk & Almond White with Cherry & Amaretto Ganaches & Salted Caramels – GOLD
Almost all of the chocolates entered are new for 2020/2021. We reentered our famous Clotted Cream Salted Caramels and we’re delighted that they won again. We last entered them in 2015 where they won gold.
We’re particularly pleased that our growing Vegan Chocolates range is being recognised. For our liqueur cherries we now direct source cherries from a small speciality distillery in the Perigord Region of France. Our mixed Vegan chocolate collection and Vegan Caramel Crunch Bar also won gold.
All our chocolates are handmade using the same small batches and artisan techniques that we’ve always used.
Our Christmas Chocolates will be available to wholesale customers from the beginning of October, a little later for retail customers. Our Easter Egg range will be available wholesale in the new year for Easter 2022.
