It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

Christmas is arriving!

Xmas 2015 rangeWe’ve added a few Christmas lines to the shop this week as it’s only a few weeks away. We have a lovely selection of Christmas chocolates and sauces, along with some homemade hampers.

White choc starsDivine White Chocolate Stars – 100g, £4.00

Not only does this treat look good, it’s also Fairtrade so everyone wins! The chocolate comes from a co-operative of farmers in Ghana where it is grown in the shade and sun-dried. It’s then turned into these lovely little stars! Visit for lots more information about Fairtrade.

Chocolate coinsDivine Dark Chocolate Coins – 70g, £2.49

More delicious Fairtrade chocolate from Ghana, these coins are vegan friendly and a more ethical choice for this Christmas essential. The foil around the chocolate is a festive red and green colour and there are about 15 coins of various sizes in the net.

Choc raspberry starsCocoa Loco Dark Chocolate and Raspberry Stars – 100g, £3.99

I love chocolate. I love raspberry. I love stars. So you can see why I chose these for the shop! Another lovely Fairtrade product, made from cocoa beans from the Dominican Republic. A lovely rich chocolate with the raspberry coming through subtly as it melts in your mouth. Really delicious and suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

Merry Moos selection boxMoo Free Selection Box – 103g, £3.99

A selection of four Moo Free bars – a Santa bar, a Bunnycomb bar, a Minty Moo bar and a Cheeky Orange bar. These are vegan and gluten free. One for the kids?

MincemeatMeridian Organic Mince Pie Filling – 320g, £3.59

This is a lovely mincemeat for pies or whatever you fancy this Christmas – there’s no suet in it so it’s suitable for everyone to use. There’s a lot of fruit in this and it’s sweetened with apple and molasses – there’s no sugar in it. There’s a couple of suggestion for how to use this on the side of the jar too!

Cranberry sauceMeridian Organic Cranberry Sauce – 284g, £2.55

I really love cranberry sauce and can eat it with absolutely anything. This one has to be one of the best I’ve tried (it still doesn’t beat my mother-in-law’s though, sorry!) – it’s a really simple recipe of apple juice, cranberries and pectin. It’s suitable for vegans so everyone can enjoy it.

Mulled Wine spicesSuma Mulled Wine spices bags – 6 sachets, £2.95

With instructions on the back for making your own mulled wine, these little cotton bags of cinnamon, orange peel, cloves and allspice will make your Christmas party go with a swing! All you need apart from this is a bottle of red wine and some brown sugar.

Sage and onion stuffingShropshire Spice Co. Wild Sage and Roast Onion stuffing – 150g, £1.15

This is a wholemeal stuffing mix with no suet, so it’s suitable for everyone. Again, there are instructions on the pack to tell you how to make this – my mum always used to add an egg to the mix as she said it helped to bind the mix together. A little tip there for you. The pack also helpfully says that there’s enough in the box for 5-6 servings – I can eat stuffing cold, so the whole pack could just as easily be for one, to be honest!
