This week we were sampling two new products from Slemish Bakery, namely Peppermint Creams and Crispettes which are chocolate and coconut crisp pieces of snacking chocolate bites. Both are gluten free and come in a 175g pouch which sits easily on your desk for easy access to a naughty treat. I could swear they are winking at me!
The Peppermint creams were little pieces of sweet fondant infused with peppermint oil and coated with chocolate. These came out the overall favourite as many of us don't like desiccated coconut as it sticks in our teeth. I thought it would have been nicer with pieces of shredded natural coconut instead.
What flavour would you like to see infused with chocolate? There are a lot of Black Pepper Chocolates and Chilli Flavours out there at the moment. These would not be to my taste, but each to their own. I would like to see Passion Fruit Chocolates myself. Maybe one of the big Chocolate manufacturers out there will pick up on this idea!
Other Slemish products which we already have available in our bakery and chocolate hampers are the popular Rocky Road Traybakes. We also used to stock caramel squares, but these are more crumbly and likely to get broken in the delivery process so we are coming up with some new protective packaging to house them. We also hope to be able to offer a wider range of freshly baked items when this new packaging is created.
Which tray bakes, pastries, buns and cake would you like to see available in the future?
