Here at Baskets Galore we have recently extended our confectionery section to include some new products which we are very excited about. These are new treats from Confectioners Hope & Greenwood of London and Mr Stanley by The Gourmet Candy Company.
Hope & Greenwood is an old-fashioned sweet shop, selling retro, old fashioned sweets, traditional sweets and nostalgic sweets. Miss Hope and Mr Greenwood are purveyors of splendid British Confectionery for the Hope & Greenwood Sweet Shops. They have won some jolly prizes including best original store and Great Taste Awards. We are currently stocking their Heavenly Mallows, salted caramel flavoured mallows smothered with milk chocolate and orange flavoured mallows smothered with dark chocolate. Also their Afternoon Tea Sweets, a selection of boiled sweets with flavours like lemon meringue, cherry bakewell and treacle tart. We also have their cute mini cartons of fizzy cola bottles, marvellous milk bottles and really good rhubarb & custard. A favourite is their bucket of strawberry & cream flavoured Candy Floss which is as fluffy as a summer cloud and as tasty as a cream tea!
The origin of the Mr Stanley's confectionery can be traced back to North Yorkshire in 1800. Started as a hobby to share with family and friends, the fragrant aroma of brown sugar. molasses and natural flavours from far away places was a sure sign that Mr Stanley was in the kitchen. So popular were his gatherings that it grew to become commercial in 1843. The Gourmet Candy Company brings together Mr Stanley's signature range of traditional British Confectionery, displayed in its distinctive striped packaging. From Liquorice pipes and fondant filled liquorice candy sticks, to chocolate honey comb and traditional boiled sweets in a range that will transport you back to a bygone era.
Our new boxed chocolate pizza slices from the Gourmet Chocolate Pizza Company are a perfect treat for yourself, a family member, a lunch boxes and for parties. Made from the highest quality ingredients including luxury Belgium dark and milk chocolate, our gourmet chocolate pizza slices come in Crunchy Munchy, Heavenly Honeycomb and Jelly Bean Crumble.
Finally we are pleased to announce the welcome return of James Chocolate handmade piglets. A cheeky litter of Somerset raised piggies, Oink! These piglets were in our gift baskets a number of years ago and we are also adding chocolate Westcountry Cows to the fold. There was one more item we couldn't resist in the their range, the ice cream lolly!
