October: Just returned from a wonderful visit with Pidy in Belgium and France. As always we were welcomed with great hospitality and had a full tour of both bakery sites. Watch this space for some new products with improved recipes in the pastry and macaron ranges.
September: Month 1 in our new premises successfully completed, and hopefully it's been a seamless transition for customers. We now have the financial backing and resources of our new parent company, and have started planning how best we can further improve the Food Angles on-line shopping experience.
August: We're just about ready to start processing orders from our new premises in Bury St Edmunds, and should be fully operational by Monday. We also have new members in the Food Angles team, and will be adding some great new products over coming weeks ready for your end-of-year catering functions.
Watch our customer make Lick Me I'm Delicious ice-cream, and serve in our White Chocolate Cup Cake Cases, in this clip from BBCs The One Show:
1st June: Great news for Food Angles customers - we've teamed up with Pidy for a special price-cut promotion on two of their all-time best sellers over the wedding and party season this Summer.
Veggie Cups and Spicy Cups have been a huge hit since they were launched, and look like getting a whole lot tastier with £4 a case off the 96 piece assortment pack. Normally selling at £16.95, orders placed from now until 31st August will be charged at £12.95 per case.
The flavours are really natural and authentic. We love 'em, and your customers will too.
20th April: Just to let you know we're now stocking Callebaut Fairtrade chocolate, to answer the growing demand for chocolate that's produced responsibly and sustainably, at the same time helping provide small-scale farmers in developing countries with a better income.
It's available in 70% extra-bitter, 54% bitter-sweet, milk or white and all with the same taste and workability as their classic counterparts.
8th April: Two new products added this week . . .
Milk Chocolate Hearts in Light Green Foil: Callebaut Caramel Topping:
£18.90 per 200pcs £5.95 per 1kg plastic bottle
23rd March: This week Pidy launch their revolutionary Gluten Free Pastry Cases at the IFE trade-show in London, and Food Angles are the first UK stockist !!
They are available from Wednesday 25th March, and pre-orders are now being taken either online or by phone. See full details here.
27th February: Great news for all gluten-intolerant customers! Our pastry supplier Pidy is just completing trials on a range of gluten-free pastry cases. We understand there will be four in the range to begin with, two for savoury fillings and two sweet.
They are waiting for lab tests and certification that the gluten content is less than 20 ppm (parts per million) before they can legally go on sale as Gluten Free. They are aiming to launch at the International Food Exhibition at ExCel, London towards the end of March. As soon as we have more details we'll let you know.
18th February:Two interesting new Callebaut products have been added in the Cocoa & Ingredients section:
MYCRYO:is powdered cocoa butter that's amazing to use in the kitchen. It can be used up to200oC for frying, is odourless, and contains no cholesterol. There's a link on the product page to the Callebaut helpsheet giving usage instructions. We use it ourselves, it's amazing.
COCOA NIBS :these are cocoa beans that have been roasted and crushed. In other words, pure chocolate before any sugar, milk or emulsifier is added to make processed chocolate. They have a strong, unsweetened chocolate taste, as you'd expect, and can be used when baking muffins or brownies, added to granola, or used as ice-cream topping. They also work well added to salads. And they're good for you apparently, being high in anti-oxidants and mono-unsaturates.
4th February: Are you ready for Valentine's Day? Order any of the following by close of play on 12th February and we'll give you a FREE upgrade to Express Next Day Delivery:
21st January 2015: It's official, customers love chocolate. Here's the result of a recent consumer survey:
10th December: PRE-NEW-YEAR PRICE CUT
Despite record sales, someone seems to have over-ordered on Biscuits. Bad news for us, but good news for you as we're giving 10% off everything in the Biscuits section. Order as much as you want before 31st December and 10% will be knocked off the price at checkout if you enter this magic code: V4W5899R7 It's all good stuff - the usual high quality you expect from Food Angles.
8th December - Christmas Delivery Update: We're currently meeting the 2 to 5 day delivery window on all Standard Delivery orders, and have practically no out-of-stock products. However, we're not able to guarantee Standard Delivery orders getting to you much faster than 5 days. Please allow for this when placing your order, or select one of our Express Delivery options when going through the checkout.
2nd December: We've survived Black Friday and Cyber Monday, now it's Truffle Tuesday:
20th November: Just a reminder there's only 25 Food Angles ordering days before Christmas. To make life a bit easier, we've put all our seasonal items in the Christmassy Things section (at the top of the list on the left).
Brand new this year are the Mini Chocolate Shots, which come complete with gold foil holders to avoid sticky fingers:
They're proving extremely popular, and as we're not getting another delivery from this Belgian supplier before Christmas, customers are advised to order asap.
10th October: Today we launch our Biscuit section:
We've been extremely choosy in listing a small selection of very high quality Cheese Biscuits and Sweet Biscuits for professional top-end caterers. We're sure your customers will enjoy them.
The selection process has been quite enjoyable too!
24th September: By popular demand, we're now stocking longer Japanese Love Knot Skewers. At 150mm long (6" in old money) they're ideal for skewering the burgers you make with our Mini Burger Buns so they hold together nicely while they're being served.
22nd September: Some of the new products are now in. We created a new Bread Products section for things you can't get from your local baker, like Pumpernickel. Not only very tasty, but good for you too.
We've also started adding to the Nuts section - no comments please, I'm talking Almonds.
8th September: Apologies for the lack of updates, we've been busy recruiting staff, installing new racking, and selecting some great new products for the Autumn season. Stock will begin arriving over the next few weeks, and as soon as its available you'll see it in the store. Look out for some new bread products, Gluten Free pastry cases, and additions to the Chef's Store Cupboard.
17th June: Lots of new pretty-coloured Milk Chocolate Hearts have been added to the range this week - great for wedding favours, or just to leave out in bowls at parties:
CUSTOMER QUIZ: What goes nicely with a cup of coffee, made in Holland from light waffle pastry, and lined with chocolate on the inside so customers don't get sticky fingers?
Here's a clue:
No prize for the correct answer, just £2.00/case off if you order during June.
30th May: As Football Frenzy rises to a crescendo ahead of the first World Cup game on 12th June, are you sure you're fully prepared? No, FULLY prepared. If you haven't stocked up on everything football-related, then you can't say you're fully prepared.
Now, where you can buy cocktail sticks with little footballs printed on the end . . . . ?
2nd April: Quite a few new products have been launched in the last few days, including the ones below. Click on these links for more info:
