Why do you do what you do?
Why chocolate? who doesn't love chocolate! It's a happy industry, all ages love it and it just makes people feel good! My husband and I had a confectionery wholesale business for 5 years which we sold 9 years ago, when we bought it, there were approx 50 items, when we sold it we had over 800 lines and dealt directly with 22 manufactures - loved watching it grow and the business is still operating today.
What is your favourite product?
My favorite products when I bought the business was the Chocolate coated Pretzels, I love something that melts but crunches. Also love our Parmesan Cheese Biscuits, the recipe is unique to us and it was the original owner's grandmother's recipe - the original is on the wall of my office, delicious with wine or a cuppa.
What is a new product you would like to launch?
Going forward I am loving new products with fresh / dried fruit i.e. dark chocolate dipped fresh cherries, whole freeze dried strawberries in milk chocolate - you just can't beat them. March will see us launch a new range of thick, decadent fudge sauce including:
- Triple Choc Fudge Sauce, fabulous for dipping & pouring
- Salted Caramel
- Black Forest
These are in beautiful 250ml bottles and are wonderful with desserts, as a gift or hampers.
