Raw Chocolate Bliss

One of our lovely customers and good friends, Bridie Nelson has written a poem just for us, so its only right that we share it with you.


Brown velvety richness
Teases my taste buds
Trickles of delight
Leave me wanting so much more
Oozing with warm wickedness
It’s positively sinful
Just one taste
I’m in pure chocolate heaven
Lusciousness soothing
Mind, body and soul
With each tiny taste
And every little mouthful
I’m wanting
Eagerly waiting
The next moment
My next fix
Of raw chocolate bliss

Its our birthday...

... so we're having a competition!

Two whole years since we started in this madcap adventure and we're still none the wiser quite where its gong to take us. But hey, that's part of the fun of it. If there's one thing I know, that to go with the flow and let the universe work its majick. Lifes just a constant uphill stuggle otherwise and I do like an easy life.

What better way to celebrate, but to share some more of that Raw Chocolate Love and have our BIGGEST EVER COMPETITION!

Making raw chocolate is child's play

Its amazing how many people think that making chocolate is difficult, and there's no mistaking it can be, especially if you start tempering and doing fancy things. But in all honesty, there's really no need and that's one of the reasons we came up with our raw chocolate making kit. When it comes down to it, making raw chocolate is easy, dead easy.

But don't just have to take my word for it, we've had some lovely comments and feedback from our customers, including several great blog posts.

Re-launched Raw Hot Choc

Following on from our success in this summers Taste of the West Awards, where both our spiced raw hot chocolate and fiery raw hot chocolate won awards, we're not one's to sit on our laurels. So we decided how can we make them even better.

The first thing that sprang to mind was to improve the look and feel of the packaging, something we'd had on the back burner, so to speak,  for a while. The other thing we wanted to do was to add a simpler variety to the range, as some people just don't want a spicey or fiery hot chocolate.
