We have a delicious selection of handmade chocolates and delicious retro sweeties perfect for your Valentine! What’s that you say? You don’t have a Valentine! Fear not we have also made some scrummy sweetie hampers and chocolate gift boxes perfect for all the singles out there J

Many of you bought our special Valentines bars last year, so we’ve been busy making them this week. If you haven’t seen them check out the picture below of a few of our designs! We can also personalise them with special message, so get in contact if you’re interested in doing this. The chocolate bars are available in milk, white and dark chocolate adorned with lovely sweets to help you spread a little bit of Valentines magic!

Our Red Velvet hearts are also back this year as well as our Gold Ballotins decorated with beautiful Red and Pink ribbons. The boxes can be filled with your choice of delicious handmade truffles and chocolates; Champagne Truffles always prove the most popular, but don’t forget we also make delicious Caramels, Cardamom, Praline and many more delicious handmade chocolates!

Sometimes we know people just want a chocolate fix, so if you know your partner likes rich smooth delicious chunks of chocolate then we recommend our Solid Chocolate Hearts available in milk, dark and white chocolate. We can even make them into lolly pops if you want something a little more fun!

As much as we know our customers love our chocolates, we also know that some people just wants sweets…you can’t really blame them can you? So back my popular demand are our Love Jars, Gift Boxes and Gift Bags. Filled with lots of retro sweets such as flying saucers, double cherries, strawberries, cherry kisses, strawberries & crème, traffic light lolly pops, mini love hearts, heart throbs, jelly beans, smarties, fizz wizz and lots more nom nom nom! The gift boxes and jars are filled with so many pink and red sweeties they are the perfect Valentines Gifts. We can personalise the gift boxes to your specifications if you want different sweets, so get in touch or check out our other gift boxes and jars!

Our Gift Bags are perfect if you want a mini gift or your loved one really likes a specific sweetie. All our sweets will give you the option to either purchase a traditional paper bag filled with a quarter of sweeties (114grams) or a 200gram gift bag. We’ve also made-up some special Valentines inspired Gift bags with either a nice pick & mix selection or individual sweets such as Traffic Light, Strawberry Split & Crème Soda Lolly Pops, Cherry Kisses, Double Cherries, Heart Throbs, Love hearts and lots lots more.

As we said at the beginning of this post we have a range of special treats for all the singles out there. From Chocolates to Retro Old Fashioned Boiled Sweets we have lots of delicious treats perfect if you’re having a night in with a group of friends or you just want to treat yourself.


Making Easter a little more environmental…….

Every year we spend ages wrapping up our Easter Eggs to make sure that they travel safely through the post without getting damaged. This year we’re going to do things differently, after reading about a few other independent retails using Popcorn as a way to safely package orders we’ve decide to do the same. The popcorn will help to protect our eggs as well as being much lighter and environmentally friendly…..

Not only will this be really good for the environment as we will be cutting out the bubble wrap, but it’s a fab treat for you…or the birds in your garden! The Popcorn won’t be flavoured, so you can either shake some salt or sugar over your packaging or give some to the birds outside.

Learn how to decorate Cupcakes!

Calling all the single Ladies and a few married ones…

Are you looking for something exciting to do this Valentine’s Day? This Valentine’s Day, Toot Sweets on Fish Street in Shrewsbury, will be holding a very special evening filled with great music, gourmet Hot Chocolates and Cupcakes!

The evening will begin with one of Toot Sweets famous Hot Chocolates made from a delicious mixture of Milk and Dark Chocolate, topped with whipped cream and honey comb.

Each lucky lady will then be given six large cupcakes to decorate with an array of different flavoured frosting. Owner of Toot Sweets Julia Wenlock, will give a short demo on the different ways to decorate your cupcakes and then the evening will be yours to have fun designing and decorating your own cupcakes!

The finished cupcakes will then be packaged up and yours to take away. The evening will end with another delicious Hot Chocolate.

Julia Wenlock owner of Toot Sweets said:

“I came up with the idea after speaking to a few people who where not planning on celebrating valentines day, I though what better way to have some fun and get some single ladies together decorating cupcakes”.
