Valentines Day Hearts

Dear Customers,

Deets and I can’t go mad with Valentine’s Day, as there are just the two of us at the moment.  So, we have opted for a Tub of 12 Happy Hearts for just £5 as our Valentine gift. Our Happy Hearts have always been popular and these are made to the Pocket Pie Madly Mandarin recipe and therefore have a lovely zingy orange taste.  They do not need to be kept refrigerated. They are available from now until 14th February, are great value and you can find them on the Gifts & Offers page.

A Tub of Happy Hearts -12 for £5

I try to avoid the subject of COVID in these emails but I had my first jab this week.  I went to Stithians Show Ground and for those of you who are not local, it is a very exposed place.  Last Tuesday morning, it was raining and a nasty wind was blowing into the marquee, yet everyone was wonderfully helpful, reassuring and jolly – the doctors, the nurses and the marshals were just lovely.  I came away feeling really positive and driving home, I decided it was because it felt like a definitive move in the right direction.  In our little world of The Raw Chocolate Pie Company, in the last year, I have had to make two much valued members of staff redundant and Donna is still on flexi furlough.  We have lost (temporarily, I hope) much of our wholesale trade and some of our suppliers are really struggling.  Yet Tuesday’s jab seemed to represent a very small but significant step towards taking back control of our lives. And thanks to you, as I have said many times, we still have a business.

Snowdrops above Porth Kidney

And then to cap it all, on my walk this morning, another cheering sight.  I spotted these, bravely flowering above Porth Kidney Beach, again in the teeth of a vicious little wind.

Thank you so much for your terrific response to the offer for subscribers only. We will work out some more of these offers for you as soon as we can afford it.  A free Wonky Pie with every order continues.

Take care,
