Our Pink Champagne Truffles have been named finalist in the Chocolate category at the Taste of the West awards 2020 – hurrah!
As the awards ceremony has been cancelled the year the winners of each category will be announced on the Taste of the West website from the 2nd November with five classes per day announced.
Our pink champagne truffles formed part of our 1920s cocktail truffles collection that first featured in our art deco Easter eggs launched in 2019. This year we created a special 12 chocolate collection for Valentine’s day, but they proved so popular that they’ve become a permanent edition to our boxed chocolate collections and are also available on loose chocolate counters.
John Sheaves, Chief Executive of Taste of the West, commented
“This year we are particularly pleased that given the difficulties the sector has faced with the Covid-19 crisis, the level of innovation in product development has been higher than usual. Through our experience of running the UK’s largest regional food and drink awards programme, our aim is to raise the bar in terms of excellence. In this way, we know that we can offer a product to a discerning consumer market which has been thoroughly tested and evaluated. So far, and there is still some way to go yet, we have seen a very high standard in food products.”
Our Pink Champagne truffles have a soft creamy centre made with real Pink Champagne and Marc de Champagne rolled in super high 45% cocoa white chocolate from Colombia. Our Jersey cream comes from the Bowles family Ivy House farm, Beckington on the Wiltshire Somerset border.
Lick the Spoon’s Director Matthew said…
We’re so pleased to be named a Taste of the West finalist once again. A gold award in itself is a huge accolade, so to be named one of three finalists in the Chocolate category is very exciting. We’ve been fortunate to be named champion chocolate nine times over the past fourteen years, but the competition is extremely high again this year so i’m sure it will be very difficult for the judges to choose.
The Taste of the West awards are the UK’s largest regional food awards and are considered the oscars of the South -West food and drink industry, patron HRH Prince Charles.
