News & Offers
In the last few weeks, I have been particularly struck by very young people’s concern for the future of the planet. I had a very interesting conversation with my 13 year old granddaughter, Lily, while we were on holiday together. She is so well informed, deeply concerned but without a trace of the usual teenage melodrama and very anxious to do her bit to help. A week later, we were exhibiting at Vegan Life Live at Alexandra Palace – there was a wonderful cross section of society attending, but again, I was so impressed with how the very young were so engaged with the problem.
All this, of course, brings me to Easter and our vegan Easter eggs, and how glad I am we made the decision 12 years ago to produce vegan raw chocolate and fudge.
So..a very special flash offer for Easter. From now until midnight on Sunday, 7th April we are giving away a free CLASSIC EASTER EGG (worth £10.95) if you order £20 or more during this period. Our CLASSIC EGG is made to the same recipe as Naked Pie and its centre is packed with a mix of organic cranberries and goji berries which have been dried without sugar. It weighs in at 150g. In 2017, The Sunday Times Style Magazine voted CLASSIC the best healthy Easter egg.
Two things to remember, all our eggs have a 6 month shelf life and orders over £20 are postage free.
Have a happy, healthy Easter,
After a few days of sunshine, Spring seems like a definite possibility and it is not long now until Easter.
So… our March offer is a free LITTLE EGG (worth £3.75) with every order placed. Our LITTLE EGG is an all time hit. It is the healthy equivalent of a cream egg. The outside is made with smooth Raw Chocolate and the inside filling is our Raw Vanilla Fudge – a yummy egg, low in sugar and dairy, gluten and soya free.
Like all our Easter eggs, LITTLE EGG has a 6 month shelf life but that doesn’t mean you have to wait until Easter to eat it! It is difficult to resist.
As always, this offer applies whatever the value of your order and I do hope you enjoy it.
So January is behind us and February is not so bad with Valentine’s Day and half term to look forward to. Do check out our Valentine’s Day gifts – delicious, original, good value and if your loved one is vegan, you are totally sorted!
This month, our free gift is a Slice Pack of two of our most popular flavours – the traditional Naked Slice and Peppermint. You will receive a free Slice Pack with every order you place during February, regardless of its value.
Spring is just around the corner!
Here are two special offers to help you move into a healthy and enjoyable New Year. Available today until the end of January.
FIRSTLY – OUR FAMOUS FIVE SUPER FOODS, normally £27.25. Just this once,we are offering all 5 for just £19.75. Our Famous Five Super Foods are Cacao Nibs, Goji Berries, Pea Protein, Spirulena Powder and Wheat Grass Powder. These are all superfoods which we use in the making of our Raw Chocolate Pies and Raw Fudges and so we buy them in bulk. This means we are able to offer you really competitive prices, and they are all organic. So often these Super Foods are massively overpriced – not by us.
SECONDLY – THE SPROUTING KIT, normally £14.95. We are offering the Kit for just £11.85. Our Sprouting Kit contains a Sprouting Jar, Alfalfa Seed, Mung Beans and The Sprouting Book by Deborah Fowler. Everything you need to get sprouting, a delicious way to boost your energy and nutrition.
Very best wishes for a happy, healthy New Year from the Raw Chocolate Pie team.

A very Happy Christmas and best wishes for the New Year,
From the Raw Chocolate Pie team.
As you know, we are a very small family business based in rural West Cornwall. However, we feel it would be rude not to join in with the madness of BLACK FRIDAY. Rather than make it too much of a hassle, we are offering a BLACK LONG WEEKEND!
So..from now on Wednesday, 21st November until midnight on Sunday, 25th November, we are offering our FULL HOUSE for just £15 (the normal price is £27).
THE FULL HOUSE comprises our 12 most popular Raw Chocolate Pie bars.
It comes in a gift box so makes a great Christmas present or why not just spoil yourself!
'HELP THE HEROES' IN MEMORY OF CONNOR
Five years ago this coming Christmas, a dear friend to our family died - he was only 20 years old. His name was Connor Greenfield and his family live here in St Ives. This is a particularly poignant time of year because Connor's birthday was on 27th November.
About a year before he died, we were all sitting round our kitchen table discussing our latest raw chocolate pie flavour. It was something of a departure from the norm and designed to provide a serious burst of energy for people on the go. Connor suggested we called it the Booster Bar....so we did.
Connor's favourite charity was HELP THE HEROES. His Dad is in the Army and Connor, too, had hoped to join up one day. Bearing this in mind, we have decided to donate every year 10p to this charity from every Booster Bar or Booster Slice sold on line during the months of November and December ...in memory of a really lovely boy, who died much too young.
It might be October but St Ives today, as I write, is as beautiful as any Summer’s day – solid blue sky, the deep blues and aqua marines of the sea, there are even some seals in the harbour, showing off, of course.
But Autumn is upon us and please forgive me but we are looking towards Christmas and the introduction of some new products to compliment the season. The first of these is a new truffle flavour – Raw Chocolate Truffle with Orange. It is extremely tasty and we will be putting it together with other truffles and slices to make up crackers and gift packs in a few week’s time.
So..for the month of October, we are offering a free Raw Chocolate Truffle with Orange with every online order, regardless of its value. I would love some feedback as to what you think of it. We have added a little orange zest so it is not too sweet.
We will have a Christmas collection up and running by October half term. Remember - all our Raw Chocolate Pies and Raw Fudges have a 6 month shelf life.
Best wishes and thank you, as always, for your support.
Well, it’s been quite a Summer for us here in Cornwall. The hot weather, of course, brought huge numbers of visitors to St Ives (6 visitors to every one resident, I am reliably informed!).This, as you can imagine, has been great for business. I admit to having been worried that the heat would reduce customers’ appetite for raw chocolate and raw fudge. However, I needn’t have worried – I think because our products are refrigerated, they are as tasty in the heat - sales have been brilliant.
The other major happening for us this Summer is that we now are machine wrapping all our products. It has been a long haul – initially raising an eye watering amount of money to buy the machine and then having to fund 20 different wrappers. But we made it andthe result can now be viewed on our website – I would love to know what you think of them. We are very excited!
To celebrate our new wrappers, we are offering a FREE NAKED COMBO BAR with every order placed during September (2018) regardless of the value of your order.
Our Naked Combo is an ideal free gift because it contains both our Raw Chocolate and our Raw Fudge.I do hope you will enjoy it.
To celebrate our Raw Salted Caramel Fudge Pie winning a Silver award at the Free From Food Awards last week, we are offering you a very special gift. For the month of May only, we will be giving you a free Salted Caramel Fudge with all online orders, regardless of how much you spend.
We sold the first batch through our St Ives shop in less than 4 hours. The winning combination of the sweetness of the caramel and the subtle saltiness of the pink Himalayan salt is truly delicious.
The judges said, "Brilliant! Close enough in texture to fudge, lovely caramel flavour. Great ingredients & very good price for quality. I would certainly buy it."
We are sure you will love it as much as we do!
All the best for a happy, healthy May,
