On Wednesday 25th Feb Thyme is eggspecting (sorry couldn't resist) the first of our easter products to be delivered.
This year I have chosen the delicious, handmade organic eggs from Montezumas. A tough part of my job is tasting different brands of chocolate and Montezumas is definitely one of the best.
These lovely eggs are available in dark, milk or white chocolate and are a real treat for adults or children. Though the little ones may prefer Montezumas easter bunnies - same delicious chocolate but in cute bunnie shapes.
Also back in stock is a selection of Booja Booja chocolate truffles. A constant best seller at Thyme - these lovely chocolates are suitable for vegetarians, vegans, and anyone following a wheat free or dairy free diet. Perfect treats for Mother's day - 22nd March 2009
Watch this space for news on more new products coming soon.

GREAT! What’s the plan?
SIMPLE! Inject £100m over 22 days into local shops across Britain so they can pay their bills, their staff can pay theirs, you can pay yours, we can pay ours and we all keep the financial cogs moving...
BRILLIANT! What do you have to do?
Just spend £5. Five quid. A fiver. A Minnie Driver. Call it what you like but all you need to do is spend a fiver on yourself.
What have you got to lose? Oh, and if you want to see how spending a fiver puts £100m into the economy check out www.purpleloveweek.co.uk for the science bit.
Our planned events so far to give you even more reason to call in......
Tues 17th Feb - Thyme will be hosting a 'Purple Crafts@ session led by local Community Artist Lisa Brookes. Come along with your kids between 2-4pm for a FREE decoration making session - you can get involved too or just kick back with a coffee and a mag.
Weds 18th Feb - Ian Hunt from Tracklements will be offering a free tasting session between 11am -2pm.
More tastings to follow along with Purple specials ...... Keep checking back for more details.
