Good Food, Good Times

We survived our second visit to the BBC Good Food Show. Phew! It’s been a busy four days.

It being our second time at the show, we were much more clued up as to the logistics of unloading, restocking, and packing up, so things ran a lot more smoothly. We had a bigger stand this year, which felt easier to manage, and we added extra lighting as well, which helped at lot.

We showcased a lot of our limited edition stick boxes, and they went down extremely well. The Gin collections sold out on day 1. The stick boxes make great stocking fillers and add-on gifts, as well as being popular for corporate give-aways and table favours.

There was opportunity to have a quick look around the show, and we discovered some interesting new products and producers, as well as catching up with familiar faces and friends.

Tomorrow is a day of unloading, unpacking, and then catching up on the online orders which have come in over the last few days.

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
