There is a lot to get through this week. Firstly, for the second week running, there will be two free pies sent out with every order, regardless of the size of your order – this time Goji & Pumpkin Seed and Nut.
These two pies are free with every order placed between now until next Sunday, 11th.
There is a reason for this, I need your help. Once again, I want to introduce a new product suggested by you. Many of you have asked for a top quality bag of mixed nuts and dried fruit. I have regularly in stock organic mixed nuts (NO peanuts, not even a trace), goji berries and cranberries dried in apple juice (no extra sugar). So, what else would you like to see in the bag? I have to admit, I am offering the two free pies as a sort of bribe to hopefully persuade you send me an email with your ideas. You know I am always very grateful for your views.
Talking of fruit, last Tuesday, 29th September, was Michaelmas Day. It celebrates the day St Michael threw the Devil down to hell and he landed on a prickly blackberry bush. Whether it was due to the prickles being very sore or simply the indignity of it all, Satan flew into a tantrum. He cursed the fruit, stamped and spat on it and even scorched it with his fiery breath. This is why you must never pick blackberries after 29th September for fear they may be devilishly contaminated. You have been warned!

St Michael is very close to the hearts of those of us lucky enough to live around here. The reason, of course, is the proximity of St Michael's Mount, which is very much on display from the top of Trencrom Hill and much loved by us all. At dawn, seen from the top of the Hill, The Mount is backlit by the rising sun. It looks totally marvellous but quite unreal, like an illustration from a child's story book.
YOU WIN! I said last week would have to be the last one until nearer Christmas when we put in your orders samples of flavours you may not have tried. I have had so many lovely emails about this, I felt I had to do it for one more week. Thank you for your kind words.
PS The Raw Hot Choc Bomb is going down a storm. I can take no credit for this, it was your idea.
