How should I store my treats?

Chocolate is best stored in a stable room temperature condition, we recommend that you store your purchase in an air tight container in a cool cupboard away from bright lights, strong odours and heat. Please do not store your chocolate/treats in a cold place such as a refrigerator as a rapid change in temperature may cause your chocolate to bloom, dis-colour or even alter the taste.

 

What is bloom?

Bloom is when chocolates appear dull or white, this is due to blooming which occurs when the cocoa butter used in the chocolate reacts with a change in temperature either hot or cold. This only affects the appearance of the chocolates not the taste.
