Hello everyone, we are back and boy have we been busy making, creating, planing and building for the future which is looking and feeling very very exciting and we can't wait to take you all on the journey with us.
So its been a while since we did one of these as we've been busy working behind the senses building up the business, working on some exciting projects and getting back out to markets which is something we both love as you get to meet so many old faces and new faces to share the cocoa drop journey with. A new feature on the web page is the events tab where you'll be able to find out where we are off to over the next few months and where you can find us and for those on our Facebook group you'll also find the details there as well.
The summer has been a whirl wind this year and I can't quite beielve as I write this that its the1st of September tomorrow! however its also extremely exciting as this summer has already started to shape the future of cocoa drop with two major happenings.
First up I've taken the step away from teaching something I've done for the last 12 years and enjoyed massively and have moved into cocoa Drop full time which I'm so so so excited about and means I can focus my full attention onto the business and its growth. This gives me the opportunity to focus on the growth, expansion and development of CD fully and means I can bring you all more of our handmade chocolates and flavours and work on the fantastic opportunities we have coming our way.
This has only been made possible by yourselves our fantastic customers and supports who are just as passionate about cocoa Drop as we are.
A massive Thank you for all your support as it means a massive amount to us all and we are super excited to share the future of CD with you all.
The other big thing we wanted to share with you all is the fact that we won an award this summer which has blown us away and we still can't quite believe that we won!
WE WON PRESTIGE AWARDS - YORKSHIRE CHOCOLATIER OF THE YEAR
This is an absolute honour to have been awarded this and the comments form the judges has just blown us away but again its a massive thank you to all of you as this was a nomination from yourselves our customers which makes this even more special and we couldn't be more grateful!
So on to now!!
With all the excitement we have been very busy planning and creating for the next few months and we think your going to love what we have planned as we are very excited with some! For now we are going to focus on the arrival of autumn and the spooky season of Halloween with some exciting new products as well as some returning favourites. Keep an eye out for the halloween blog drop in a few weeks but in the mean time its all about then newest of the autumnal flavours.
This year we've decided to bring you some flavours that have been requested but also flavours we love as well and added a little seasonal twist to bring them into the Cocoa Drop family.
So let us introduce you to the newest members;
