Product Life

If you don't eat them the day they arrive...

Our chocolates are best stored in a cool, dark and dry space. They are great at room temperature, around 16-20c. We do not recommend refrigeration as this can cause condensation of the chocolate.. We recommend consumption within 14 days however some products will be edible for up to 3 months. or more, each item will be individually labelled.

Allergy Advice

Our chocolates are prepared in a home kitchen which handles Peanuts, other nuts, soy, gluten, sesame, sulphites and milk products. Our dark chocolate is suitable for vegans. Whilst we make every effort to avoid cross contamination, if you have a severe allergy to any of the above, then our chocolates may be unsuitable for you.

Packaging

Trying to be Green

Our aim is to be as environmentally friendly as possible. Our boxes are recyclable, our cello bags are made from sustainable wood and the cushion pad is made from glassine faced kraft paper both of which are biodegradable. We proud to announce our trays are now biodegradable too.

The ribbon we use for our boxes is made from recycled bottle tops. 

When sending items in the post we may use boxes that we have received items in, however the chocolates inside will have new packaging. If you would prefer we can supply new postal boxes at no extra cost.
