Well, we made it! There were a couple of wobbly moments during the month when I could quite easily have been persuaded to fall off the wagon, but I resisted the temptation. I also beat my target of running 160 kilometres during the month and kept my diet nice and healthy and have lost half a pound in weight …. On the plus side, my body fat is down by 2% and I’ve lost several inches, but first thing this morning I was wondering if all the denial and healthiness had really been worth it!

Our Burns Night collections were really well received this year. It’s the first time we’d put together a full collection, so based on how well they’ve gone it’s something we’ll be doing again next year. We’ve now got our Valentines selections online, which include our ever popular 6 Champagne Cocktail stick boxes. I’ve also created a new range of Champagne truffles dusted in freeze-dried fruit powders, which act like adding fruit juice to your glass of Champagne. Taste tests have been really positive, so I hope you like them too.

Choctails® was founded by husband and wife team Simon and Hilary Delamare. Simon's suggestion of putting cocktail flavours into chocolate took Hilary's chocolate-making hobby to new heights, until in May 2012, the decision was made to turn the hobby into a full time business. The domestic kitchen became a production factory by day, and the dining room was given up to become a place where hand-made chocolate is crafted
