'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,
It is a beautiful afternoon in West Cornwall – sufficiently warm and dry to give the lawn its first cut, ably “assisted” by my jack russell, Spud, whose greatest joy in life is to dive bomb the lawn mower, kamikaze style.
Tomorrow, by contrast, I am told we face sub zero temperatures but March is upon us, so…. soon it will be Easter. To get you in the mood, this month’s offer is a free Little Egg when you place an order with us on line, regardless of its value. The Little Egg is like a healthy cream egg – raw vegan vanilla fudge on the inside with a raw chocolate shell. We sold thousands last Easter, it proved so popular, with children as well as adults. As with our Raw Chocolate Pie, Little Egg is dairy, gluten and soya free with no added refined sugar. It is also delicious!
Have a look at all our Easter eggs on the website. We can send them for you direct to family and friends and you can include message which we will write out on a gift card.
Have a good Easter break.
