Merry Christmas from the Sweetie team!

This is of course our busiest time of year and the Sweetie team have been flat out since November, hand packing and fulfilling your orders. Christmas started at Sweet Memory Lane with orders for over 350 Advent Boxes, several weeks ago.  Since then, we’ve used: 300 candy canes 120 baskets 860 gift boxes 30 reels of red striped ribbon 8 rolls of cellophane 135 glass jars ….and at least 3 trips each day to the local Post Office! It’s nearly time for our little team of busy Sweetie elves to take a breather and put their feet up with a glass of sherry and a mince pie.  We close on Christmas Eve and will open our doors once again on Saturday 2 January.  Already we have our work cut out, with plans for the design of our 2016 now famous Advent Box starting immediately! I’ll make sure that each member of our team leaves on Christmas Eve with a selection of their own favourite treats.  For the Sweetie Lady, it just has to be a delicious tub of Cocoa Dusted Almonds with Luxury Belgium Buttons.  They go perfectly with the delicious Taylors of Harrogate Rich Italian Coffee! As always, you’ve made 2015 a wonderful year for our little sweet emporium and we’d like to extend our heartfelt thanks. Wishing you and yours a safe, joyful Christmas and all our very best wishes for...

Ashby Treats says “be good to yourself in 2015”!

December 2014 has to have been without doubt, one of the busiest months ever for Ashby Treats.  We’re still seeing people come into the shop to say they saw our Advent Box on “This Morning”.  In addition, we were delighted to hear that our website had won a national award, and we will give you more details when they appear online.  Both of these events are testament to the hard work put in by our fantastic team over the last 12 months.   You might think that with Christmas over, we’d have time to take a breather, but you’d be wrong!  Before the festive season had even ended, we were planning delicious new gifts to introduce for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and even Easter!  All the products in our new ranges need to be ready to be photographed next month, so it’s all hands on deck once more.   Have you made and broken your New Year’s Resolution yet?  Perhaps the reason why they’re so hard to keep is that inevitably, they tend to involve changing your lifestyle or depriving yourself of something.  So why not make a resolution that you can keep, and promise to be kinder to yourself in 2015?  To help you along, we’ve a whole host of new goodies ready to be unveiled, as well as a new range of coffee beans for those of you who love your coffee fix, so get ready to treat yourself!   Here’s wishing you a happy, healthy and indulgent 2015, from the Ashby Treats...
