The Great Taste Awards are organised by the Guild of Fine Food and have become the acknowledged benchmark for fine food and drink. The awards have been described as the ‘epicurean equivalent of the Booker Prize’ as they recognise the very best in finest quality produce. It’s no surprise then, that we’re absolutely delighted to have won no less than THREE Great Taste Awards this year. Our winners are Hunky Punky Chocolate and Keep Smiling Vanilla M’Gorilla Dairy Free Ice Cream – each picking up a 1-star award – and our Hazelnut Crunch Chocolate Truffles which earned a superb 2-star award.
More than 400 specialist judges are involved in the lengthy and thorough process of choosing Great Taste Award Winners. Their comments about our winning products included some great feedback. Of our Hazelnut Crunch Truffles they said, “Oh wow – these are sensational. Delicious, smooth, rich ganache with a superb depth of flavour and excellent, crunchy hazelnuts. Great combination and deftly executed.”
Their praise of Hunky Punky Chocolate included, “Good quality chocolate, lovely agave sweetness. All flavours marry up well to create a beautifully tasting product.”
Of Keep Smiling Vanilla M’Gorilla they remarked, “a good level of sweetness and some delicate vanilla. A really pleasant experience and quite refreshing to eat.”
More than 10,000 products were entered for Great Taste Awards this year but only 35% were successful in being accredited with stars, so we’re feeling just a little bit proud of ourselves.
