Kimberley's from Windermere, England

This range all began when Mike Crowe took one of his sons to a restaurant in Belgium which served the most amazing chocolates he had ever tasted. He was told they were made by Pralineur Van Coillie (see above) who was eating at the table right next to him.  After months of intense training, family-run Kimberley's were soon producing chocolates in the heart of England.  Their English classics such as Rose & Violet Creams are consistently one of our best sellers as well as Chilli & Lime, Salted Caramel and Black Forest

Pralibel from Vichte, Belgium

A major player in the French chocolate market and producer for two of the world's premier Belgian chocolate brands (who shall remain nameless), Pralibel use only cocoa butter in their chocolates and the finest ingredients available.  They have been one of our largest suppliers for 17 years with the best sellers being Mango Cup, Pistachio & Blackberry, Raspberry Ganache and Coffee Cream.

Natra Jacali from Bredene in Belgium

The merging of Spanish company, Natra and family-owned Jacali, created one of the largest producers in Belgium allowing the company to expand its quality chocolates into more than 60 countries.  After visiting their premises in September 2016, we were blown away by their fabulous range of truffles and their passion for quality and flavour. Their praline seashells contain 42% hazelnuts unlike the cheaper supermarket varieties with just 12%.  Best selling truffles include Amaretto, Dark Orange, Tiramisu and Champagne.

Duva from Belgium

Considered the masters of chocolate-enrobed fruit products including the finest quality Chinese stem ginger, orange slices, orangettes, dates and whole cherries.  Other companies dry the product too quickly (to reduce production costs) which can result in an over-dry product. Duva air-dries their ginger for 2-3 days before enrobing, resulting in mouth-wateringly moist chocolate gingers.

Seasonal Favourites
