Gold star for our Strawberry and Elderflower truffles

It’s a gold star for Kacao as my Strawberry and Elderflower truffles have wowed the judges at the Great Taste Awards.

This is an amazing achievement as the Great Taste Awards are known as the ‘Oscars’ of the food world and it’s one of the largest food awards schemes involving more 400 judges and thousands of hours of blind tasting (what a fab job – where do I apply?)

The judges were impressed by the truffle, commenting on the sharp taste of the strawberry dust and describing it as ‘a wonderful looking sweet with a rustic finish’.

In my first year of trading, to receive a Gold Star from the Great Taste Awards is incredible and I am really pleased the judges enjoyed the Strawberry and Elderflower Truffles.

I work hard to develop unique chocolates, with interesting flavours and textures, so to receive this kind of recognition is hugely encouraging as I continue to develop and grow the business. I love to be creative with our chocolates and the feedback from the Awards has been amazing.

If you’ve tried my Strawberry and Elderflower truffles I would love to know what you think of them - and if you haven’t, go to and order some now.
