Finishing Touches

Hello from Ashby de la Zouch, I haven’t posted a blog for quite a while, well to be honest nearly a year, so with a little persuasion, badgering and a swift kick it is time to sort it out, so where do I start … I have read the guides to successful blogging, I have even done a few drafts of what I want to say, I have shown them to friends and family, so why haven’t they hit this page sooner … to be honest there is no logical answer to this question other than my love of all things sweet probably got in the way, sticky fingers and keyboards can be a problem. So here goes, bear with and all that this week’s blog title is …. Finishing Touches. So the Chief Sweet Taster that is me, has a little passion for ribbon, tissue and wrapping paper there is nothing better than a parcel arriving on your doorstep that has been packed with crisp tissue paper and held together with ribbon … it’s like opening a present to yourself and that is where I started, with a dress I had ordered online, arriving in a gorgeous brown box lined with tissue and finished with a ribbon … the dress by now was insignificant! My thoughts then turned to my own website www.ashbytreats.com and how we present our own sweet treats … so I invested time in ensuring that whenever or whatever you buy from our online store you can be confident that your treats will arrive in a brown box, tissue lined with your goodies packed in individual stripped paper bags, suspended in wood wool and most of all the tissue folded over and held with one of our lovely Sweet Memory Lane stickers, we also pop in a little note that tells you which one of the Sweetie Team has packed your order too … I call these the finishing touches and it’s not only online that you get this service we offer it in our lovely little sweet shop Sweet Memory Lane, just of Market Street, Ashby de la Zouch in the heart of the National Forest. If you are buying something extra special from our website as a gift you can also tick to have your purchase beautifully gift wrapped as you check out from www.ashbytreats.com … our gift wrapping service uses beautiful quality wrapping paper selected for the season or occasion and finished with beautiful ribbon … if you are visiting us at Sweet Memory Lane you can chose from our lovely selection of wrapping papers yourself and the team would be delighted to wrap your gift in store. Bye for now from The Chief Sweet Taster and her team always open at...

Looking for a special Easter Egg?

I don’t know about you but when I look at the hundreds of Easter Eggs stacked on supermarket shelves, the occasion seems to lose its sparkle, somewhat.  The “buy 3 for a fiver” low quality chocolate eggs hardly gives the message that you think a child is special!  In fact, many mums have told me that their kids eat the sweets inside and discard the egg entirely.  It certainly doesn’t have the magic that I remember as a youngster! For Easter 2015, , we’re offering something very different to those mass-produced eggs.  Our beautifully-printed vintage tins can be packed chock-full of delicious mini eggs and of course can then be used all year round, meaning that you’re getting much more value for money and offering something that little bit special, too. Choose from our Belle & Boo Easter Tins or our Vintage Easter Egg Tins.  Priced from £2.50 they won’t break the bank and make a gorgeous display in the kitchen or on a dressing table. We even stock Easter Eggs for adults that are a little different from the usual big-name brand chocolates.  How about a crispy toffee caramel egg, a salted peanut caramel egg or a passion fruit caramel egg?  Perfect for snacking on when watching Bank Holiday TV! If you’re thinking of taking the family to the cinema over the holidays, we can help to save you money there too.  As we all know, sweets can cost a fortune at the cinema, so we’ve come up with a “pick & mix and cinema gift card” package which is proving very popular. Everything is of course available online, but if you’re in the area, why not pop into our Sweet Memory Lane sweet shop in Ashby de la Zouch to see our whole range of...
