What a difference a week makes…  Christmas is behind us and we are looking forward to 2022!

What a difference a week makes… Christmas is behind us and we are looking forward to 2022!

Before we say goodbye to 2021 (a challenging year for us all)  I’d like to take a moment to reflect on our ‘wins’.  Over the past year we have launched some delicious new chocolate treats Dark Chocolate Peppermint Fish  - what a perfect combo Milk Chocolate Banoffee Bar – what’s not to love about caramel & banana? Our latest Chocolate Fish Selection 200g box has the additional flavours of Dark Chocolate Peppermint & Milk Chocolate Hokey Pokey, with the old favourites Dark Chocolate Raspberry & Milk Chocolate Strawberry Chocolate Fish Bites -  because you told us that you loved the...

Queen Anne Highly Commended NZ Artisan Awards

Queen Anne Highly Commended NZ Artisan Awards

We were very excited (and more than a little proud!) to be Finalists in the recent NZ Artisan Awards with both our Fish Bites  & our Fish Selection gift boxes.   There’s always a lot of thought and a great deal of tasting that goes into the making of any new Queen Anne products. For those of you not familiar with our new chocolate treats, the idea for a Fish Selection came up when we were discussing which of our ‘school’ of Chocolate Fish we liked the best.  It’s a hard decision as they are all delicious – so what...
