A few of my favourite things... 0

So I had a quiet morning in the shop and I wondered around the shop thinking of a new blog post to write about so I thought, why not share with you some my favourite things in the shop...   It would only seem rite that I LOVE everything in the shop but the honest truth is that I don't. I cannot stand anything that is flavoured Cherry, Coconut or Cinnamon (Yuk!). What I do love is anything flavoured Grape, Strawberry and Watermelon - I guess I am more into Sweet tastes ;-) [caption id="attachment_131" align="alignnone" width="300"]10565154_10154562009610226_5192031806836634268_n This is me (had to close my eyes because it looked funny)[/caption] My first favourite is "The Red Balloon" Candy. This lollipop is so delish (flavoured Raspberry). The Red Balloon are Candy Artisans based in Melbourne. I stock their Lollipops, Rock Candy, Skulls and Printa Lollipops. Amazing!

The best thing of all is they use Belgian Chocolate which is to die for! I could eat these Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner - nothing wrong with that, rite?   10632574_10154562009815226_6006485692716533433_n If you have not tried Galaxy chocolate yet, do yourself a favour and buy 2! I am a dedicated Lindtt lover but Galaxy definitely takes the cake. Its smooth texture definitely leaves you wanting more. Galaxy is actually DOVE Chocolate but branded as Galaxy in the UK. My favourite is the Cookie Crumble - Yum!   10606026_10154562010445226_877591781553810922_n I am bias when I say I love the Soy Wax Melts as I make these but they smell so good you could eat them! I have been making Soy Wax Melts for almost 3 years and I think I have almost perfected them! Musk Sticks is one of our top sellers but my favourites are Salted Caramel, Bubblegum and Grape. I LOVE making Mint Patty it makes my work area smell very Minty ;-)   10593226_10154562010140226_29038895568017466_n I must give a bundle of thanks to Jelly Belly. Jelly Belly was the very first brand that I wanted to have in the shop all because of my addiction. I first came across Jelly Belly at the Sugar Station in Melbourne and I could not get enough! When I first made the decision to open a shop, I planned to have my handmade candles and Jelly Belly - that was it! My favourite flavour is Grape (can you see a trend?)   [caption id="attachment_133" align="alignnone" width="225"]10559655_10154562009950226_4885159232229263984_n Appleberry[/caption]

Bathalicious! I LOVE these Bath Bombs, they not only smell great but they also leave the skin feeling fresh!

  10561815_10154562010285226_6653757472033034083_n   Chocolate Coated Strawberries and Cream - nothing else needs to be said! So these are just a few of my favourites, feel free to share your favourites on Instagram by using #joysdelights or let us know in the comments below   Tara    

 

Product Review - Pana Chocolate 0

We LOVE Pana Chocolate! We like to call it the 'Healthy Chocolate'

10599414_10154514821405226_1703490364594231989_n

I love to do a bit of research and find out a little bit about products and brands. So here are a few facts about Pana.. Pana was founded by Pana Barbounis in Melbourne, Victoria. All packaging of Pana is 100% Australian made AND Recyclable. Pana uses only raw and organic ingredients and make sure the Chocolate is incredibly tasty with each flavour made. We absolutely love the NUTS and our customers LOVE Sour Cherry & Vanilla Nuts has a combination of Walnuts, Cashews, Hazelnuts and Brazil Nuts (all organic of course!) Our customers favourite (Sour Cherry Vanilla) has a yummy Vanilla base with a sour cherry piece rite in the middle of each piece of Chocolate. 997031_10154514821750226_3205667115328526083_n I am lucky enough to be able to eat ANY type of Lolly or Chocolate but I can see how frustrating it would be to be lactose intolerant or a Coeliac. This is what I love about Pana as it is Raw, Organic, Dairy Free, Soy Free, Gluten Free and has no refined sugar! Doesn't sound that appealing does it? Trust me, I was very sceptical with something to be free of all of the above PLUS Vegan and no refined sugars I thought how could that taste any good - IT IS AMAZING! The texture of this Chocolate is so smooth unlike a lot of raw, organic chocolates.

Tara's Choc PB Teddy Treats 0

I was up almost to 1am last night (this morning I should say) thinking of what my next blog post should be about. All day I was trying to think and then my lovely helper Cath from Lunch Boxes with Love (http://lunchboxeswithlove.com/) suggested a recipe post and started researching some yummy treats made with Peanut Butter Cups. As soon as I got home I researched some recipes using Reeses Peanut Butter Cup Miniatures and this is what i came up with.. Feel free to use my recipe ;-) Choc PB Teddy Treats Get your car keys because you will want to try this as soon as you are finished reading - this one is definitely for the chocolics (like myself) not suitable for dislikers of Peanut Butter Ingredients: Chocolate Teddy Bear Biscuits Reeses Peanut Butter Mini Cups (We sell these!) Big Marshmallow pieces or Marshmallow Fluff spread Nutella image       First coat the biscuits with a thin layer of Nutella Place one marshmallow on top, cut the middle of the Marshmallow and place 2 Mini Peanut Butter cups inside. Place on a baking tray and bake for 10 minutes on 160 degrees. Waiting, waiting... image READY! Remove from oven, be careful it will be HOT The Marshmallow will melt over the sides but this adds to the yumminess! image My Partner (Daniel) gives the thumbs up !
