Sold out of fresh chocolates
We have been overwhelmed with support and orders since Dragons' Den and are now in the difficult position of having sold out of fresh chocolates.
As we watched the programme for the first time with friends and family on Thursday, our delight soon turned to concern when we realised that we had seriously under-estimated just how many of you would want to try our chocolates.
The forecasts we had worked so hard on were being blown out of the water - we sold out of all the stock we had boxed up and ready-to-go within 16 minutes (150,000 chocolates in case you're interested), within 90 minutes we'd sold all remaining stock (150,000 more chocolates) and within two hours we had sold two years worth of fresh chocolates!
Below is an actual picture of our sales since March 2021 and the profound impact Dragons' Den had!
We hate to disappoint our customers, so we made the difficult decision to stop taking orders while we find a way to make more chocolates, more quickly.
We hope that you will wait and will still want to try the fresh chocolates that Sara Davies described as “the best chocolates I’ve ever tasted” when we return. Thank you for your patience and for supporting our business, it’s been an amazing journey and we are busy working every hour to make as many chocolates as possible.
When will I be able to order again?
Please sign up to our mailing list here and we will notify you when we will be back in stock.
When will my existing order arrive?
We have already packed up and sent out 300,000 chocolates! If your order is one of these, you will receive a confirmation email when it is out for delivery with Royal Mail.
Any orders placed after Friday 11th March will take longer as we need to make a fresh batch of chocolates. We will keep you informed by email and we hope you will wait, however if you prefer to cancel please let us know on firstname.lastname@example.org
Can’t you just make more chocolates?
Yes, we can! And we will, but we will not compromise on quality.
Why does it take so long?
Whereas a mass-manufactured chocolate bar takes about an hour or two to produce, our chocolates take about 3 days to make (read our blog 'Slow Chocolate for Fast People'). We only use the best quality ingredients from small producers and, as a young start-up, we are doing everything ourselves from the packing to answering customer queries. Please bear with us as we work on the most efficient, zero-compromise way to make the most fresh chocolates and get them out to you as quickly as we can.
