What Our Customers Have to Say

Choctails Soirée

3 days ago


Last Orders Please!

I hope you’re keeping safe and well as we head towards the festive season.

I just wanted to let you know that this will be our last Christmas trading as Choctails. Due to the fact that we will be relocating in 2021, we’re using this as an opportunity to take some time out, and so we are calling time on Choctails 😢

Our discounted prices will remain in place throughout the Festive period, and the last date for us to receive orders for guaranteed Christmas delivery is midday on Friday 18 December.

We will be having a relocation sale in the new year for any stock left over, so watch this space for further details.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your custom over the years. We couldn’t have done it without you 😘

We’re obviously in for a bumpy ride towards the festive season, so we’d like to help keep your spirits up, and help you to consume nearly as much alcohol as your hands are…. well, okay, maybe not that much….

I’ve decided to have a mega sale of all our boxed chocolate collections running through to the end of of 2020 so that you can not only send Choctail treats to all your friends and family that you might not be able to spend time with, but you can also afford to treat yourself, because, after all, we’re all in need of a little indulgence in these very strange times.

We only have limited quantities of our chocolates at the reduced prices, so make sure you grab one (or two) before they’re gone.

Stay safe, everyone.
