Happy days! We managed to sort out our website updating issues and last restock worked perfectly! So glad that so many of you managed to get your hands on the choc you wanted and thanks for helping us sell out again! We are taking a couple of weeks off in July, but before we do, we will be doing a mini-restock at 5pm on Sunday 5th July with a few end of term gift tins and slabs. We are not returning to Tynemouth or Jesmond market just yet, due to our planned break, but stay tuned for August.

Thanks! xx

Thank you to everyone who bought our Fathers Day Hamper Tins on Friday night! We hope the fatherly-figures in your life love their chocolate. We apologize for the delay with the stock being available via some internet browsers at 8pm, it seems our website was struggling with the amount of people accessing it at once. It's frustrating for us as we are really happy the site is so busy, we are hoping to resolve that issue ready for the next upload. We are also now back in the kitchen restocking all our regular favourites, and a date will be announced soon. In the meantime why not head over to our Instagram page and enter our 2k Giveaway! Winner to be announced on Friday evening. Thanks xx

Thank you so much to everyone who helped our website sell out once again last Friday! We are quite overwhelmed by the support for our business these last few weeks. Our next website restock will be

8pm Sunday 31st May

We are now back in the kitchen and will be making another big batch of Special Edition Rainbow Hampers, as we know quite a lot of people missed out. We are limited to how much we can scale up our production at the moment (for obvious reasons) but are attempting to make more to meet the demand. You can also grab our chocolate from Something Good in Jesmond via their click and collect service. Take care everyone xx

Thanks to everyone who set their timers again on Friday, our website sold out even more quickly than last time! We hope your orders are starting to arrive and you are loving your chocolate. We are now in the process of making more, and our online shop will re-open at

8pm on Sunday 17th May

The rainbow fudge slabs have proved extremely popular and once again, 50p from the sale of every one of these will be donated to the Trussell Trust Food Bank Network.

Thanks to everybody who set their reminders and helped our website sell out in just 20 minutes on Friday night! We can't thank you all enough. It will take us a little while to build the stock back up but the website will re-open for another limited number of orders at

8pm on Friday 1st May

We feel like this strikes a good balance, allowing us to keep our business running, whilst making just one trip to the post office to dispatch all the orders at the same time. Following a lot of requests we will be making another batch of praline eggs and rainbow fudge slabs!! Once again we will be donating 50p from the sale of each rainbow fudge slab to the Trussell Trust food bank network. Take care everyone xx

Thanks to the very positive response to our instagram poll, we are excited to announce that our website will open for a limited number of orders at 8pm on Friday 17th April! The website will stay open for orders for 24hours unless it sells out before that. For every one of our new rainbow fudge slabs sold, 50p will be donated to the Trussell Trust, supporting the nationwide network of food banks. Because we don't believe anyone should go hungry. All orders received will be dispatched on Monday/Tuesday. This certainly isn't 'business as usual', but we feel that with the occasional website drop, we can continue our business while managing the limited amount of stock we can make. It also means less trips to the Post Office as all orders are posted at the same time. We are continuing to supply Something Good in Jesmond with their Click and Collect service. We hope you are all coping ok and staying safe xx

We are very happy to say we will continue to supply a selection of our chocolate slabs to Something Good in Jesmond, who are operating a 'Click and Collect' service for your food and household essentials. Check our Stockists page for details. Our online store will re-open once we have some idea of when the current lockdown measures will be lifted. Sorry for any inconvenience. In the meantime, We hope everyone has a lovely Easter despite the current conditions. If you liked the look of the Easter products we teased you with on our Instagram page, we are planning to release a limited number of these later in the year! Stay safe everyone xx

Hello chocolate lovers!

In this strange and developing situation we find ourselves in, things are changing by the day. We are currently taking a little break from chocolate production to settle into this unexpected life of no school and kids at home 24/7! We are also hoping it will become clearer in the next couple of weeks whether we could safely continue to post out online orders during an extended lockdown, we know you need treats and we really want to keep making them! We may also be able to keep supplying our stockists who remain open as essential food shops. Keep an eye on this page and our Instagram grid for announcements. The two markets we regularly trade at, Jesmond and Tynemouth, are currently closed. Once these reopen we will put our next trading date on the 'Find Us' page. We can't wait to be back in action and hope you are staying safe and well.
