Great Taste, the world’s most coveted food and drink awards, has announced its stars of 2020. Out of 12,777 products sent in from 106 different countries, Lick the Spoon was awarded three1-star Great Taste awards, which means judges dubbed it a food that delivers fantastic flavour

This year’s winners have been found through a combination of remote judging and socially distanced judging sessions, after the lockdown began just one week into the schedule. This necessitated a swift and comprehensive reinvention of the Great Taste process to ensure that robust judging standards were maintained and the quality of feedback was not compromised, all in time to provide a much-needed boost for food and drink producers during the all-important Christmas period.

The Judges said of our Dark Chocolate Hot Chocolate Lickable Spoons…

A great fun looking product – the unmelted chocolate is well tempered and glossy, with a great rich aroma – excellent bitter notes in the infusion with the chocolate staying to the fore. Using quality chocolate has made a wonderfully indulgent product.

 

The panel of judges this year included; cook, writer and champion of sustainable food, Melissa Hemsley, cook, writer, stylist and voice of modern vegetarian cooking, Anna Jones, celebrated Spanish chef, José Pizarro, Kavi Thakrar from Dishoom, food writer and cook, Xanthe Clay, and baker and author, Martha Collison, as well as food buyers from Selfridges, Fortnum & Mason and Waitrose. Lick the Spoon Director Matthew Short said…

We’re delighted to have won three 2020 awards in this most challenging of years. We’re particularly pleased that our new Vegan Salted caramel bar made with Madagascan Cashew Milk chocolate has won an award as well as our new Smoked Sea Salt and Peanut truffle which will feature in our soon to launch Vegan Chocolates box.
