Morning all!  I hope today finds you happy and well.  I'm celebrating another landmark today (they're coming thick and fast now...) - I now have 50 followers on this very blog!  Woo!!!  Thank you to everyone who's pressed the 'follow' button, and to everyone else who keeps coming back to read my blog.  I really appreciate it.

Raw Chocolate Bundle of 5 Bars by RawChocolate
£14 (+ £2 p&p)
When cacao is cooked, almost all of the nutrients, minerals and antioxidants are lost in the process. Cacao in its raw state is actually considered a superfood – it contains over 300 nutritional compounds, it is one of the richest sources of anti-oxidants and is full of essential minerals – especially rich in iron, zinc and magnesium. It even contains the natural “love” molecule PEA.  Raw Chocolate by Ailey Mae has only pure, high quality ingredients and absolutely nothing artificial. It is suitable for vegans, diabetics and anyone on a weight loss diet.  Not only is it amazingly delicious, it is actually good for you!

Salted Smoky Caramels by sweettreatsbakery
£5.59 (+ £1.97 p&p)
Deep, smoky, not too sweet but not too salty either! To make these deliciously smooth & creamy caramels we take the sugar to near burning to create the deep smoky flavour. The Welsh Halen Môn sea salt adds to the depth and intensity of the caramel flavour and is a combination that just seems to work!
