We have just restocked the Grenada 100% - unfortunately as the cost of the bar to us has risen 50p we have had to pass that on. Hopefully our loyal customers will understand. Regular purchasers of this chocolate can also try some of our other 100% bars.
We have launched a line from Casa Luker featuring their 100% couverture and the wonderful range of highly ethical gifts from Blyss Chocolate.
This week sees us add a fantastic range of chocolates from a new American maker in the form of fincaChocolate. These chocolates are well worth trying.
This week we will be offering a small range of Madecasse and Original Beans chocolate. We have also secured a wide variety of chocolate from the awesome Patrice Chapon in France. This should be with us in a couple of weeks.
We've just added the absolutely fabulous Pump Street Bakery range of chocolate to the store - we blooming well love it!
We have just added the premium-quality Favarger Swiss Chocolate to the site - it is a great deal different to our usual ranges, but we hope you enjoy!
We've just added a new user returns system. We've been trading for a couple of years and we've only had chocolate returned to us - but that was from a courier who couldn't find an address. But if you are at all unhappy with the chocolate we've sent you, then we've got a handy tool to help you specify how you would like us to respond to your concerns and issue refunds, credits or returns.
We've also just added a new search feature to make it easier for you to find the right chocolate. This ties in with our recent blog post about finding the perfect chocolate.
On another note, we should be having Wilkie's Chocolate back in stock next week. This is fantastic Irish bean-to-bar, organic chocolate that we just love. This time we've extended the variety of bars we'll be stocking.
Following on from the recent rise in Royal Mail postage prices for their 'Large Letter' and 'Small Parcels' services, we have had to pass this on. We essentially don't charge for the packaging nor the packing. Larger orders from £20 to £44.99 won't see an increase in charges, whilst we have moved free shipping to orders over £44.99. The most similar alternative to us only give free delivery on orders over £200 and that is second class. We still normally send parcels 1st class (99% of the time).
We've also just added a new range of Easter chocolate gifts for 2014. We hope you like them.
We have now added the amazing AMMA chocolate which is a completely ethical, organic company which grows their own beans in Brazil and makes some interesting, if not a touch unusual, chocolate.

Over the next month we'll be adding more to the range - this time in the really unusual chocolate category.

New American Lines - 03/05/13
Still Awaiting Stock - 19/04/13
Huge apologies to our customers who seek 100% chocolate. We have attempted to restock the most popular lines but have had orders delayed by our suppliers. We apologise for this and hope to resolve the matter very quickly.
New Website Launched - 21/01/13
Our old website has served its purpose. We thought it was about time that our customers had access to a much more professional website which offers a more streamlined purchasing process as well as a more accurate product search facility. We also have worked on improved product categorisation.
Previous customers may be impacted as old order numbers will become redundant and the old "my account" facility will no-longer work. We have exported past order and customer details and should you have a query we are still able to access your past order history. Please contact us if you would like more information.
