Popped into The Strand shopping arcade/mall, call it what you will, this week, and had the opportunity to buy some Sweet P chocolate.
It has to be said that there is simply no comparison between artisan chocolate and the mass produced stuff. I will eat both as I can’t afford artisan all the time, but my goodness, the difference is tangible.
Sweet P Confectionery is a small, family run business based in Bude, Cornwall, making a huge range of products from bars to boxes of chocolates, something to suit every occasion! Pamela Alexander is the chirpy chocolatier whose products are made using many locally sourced ingredients from in and around Bude, Cornwall, with the highest quality Belgian chocolate. The great news is that a lot of the dark chocolate is vegan, too, for those who are. I just prefer dark chocolate, to be honest.
Now, I’ve always had a penchant for rose and violet creams, so when I was asked to taste the violet creams, obviously I had a big smile on my face and didn’t say no!
I have to confess I ate the little box of 6 in one day while at my desk, doing edits to my forthcoming book. I know this isn’t good and I did plan to space them out rather better!
Comfort food it was, and I didn’t really have time to stop the flow and make lunch, so what I really liked about these was that the violet was subtle (not like Parma Violet sweets) and the chocolate was the main act. It was divine. The word I like is scrumdiddlyumptious, which just sums it up, really. Thank you, Roald Dahl. And thank you Sweet P!
