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.

Ideas for Valentine's Day for less than a fiver

We have some foodie gifts ideal for Valentine's day now in stock at Thyme.
As the general theme is chocolate you can choose from Cottage Delight's triple indulgence bars - 3 bars of lovely gift wrapped chocolate. Or Violet creams for those of you with more traditional tastes. We also have little gift bags of our hot chocolate flakes or chocolate coated coffee beans along with some new sweets from the Burnt sugar Company. All of these items are under £5.
We can of course make up a hamper if you really want to treat someone (or even yourself!).
