LIVINGLIVING

OF CHOCOLATES

AND CHEESE

Seasonal treats for the festive period. Check

labels for carb-counts on the chocs though!

D

ivine Chocolate, the

farmer-owned chocolate

company has gone into

partnership with the

RSPB to create an advent

calendar. Featuring an illustration of a

snowy woodland scene, there's a Divine

smooth milk chocolate animal or bird

behind each door. RRP of £4.00. The

new advent calendar adds to Divine's

successful Christmas range which

this year includes seven new products

including milk and white chocolate lollies,

milk and dark chocolate collections

and limited edition 100g bars as well as

Divine festive favourites -- after dinner

thins, chocolate coins and milk chocolate

shapes. Divine has two new limited

edition 100g bars for the season, Dark

Chocolate with Toffee & Sea Salt, and Milk

Chocolate with Caramel & Espresso Nibs.

All Divine's Christmas products are

certified Fairtrade and are free from artificial

flavourings, colourings and preservatives,

and suitable for vegetarians. They are

also all palm oil free.

Quicke thinking

The Quicke family has been farming

in rural Devon for over 450 years and

making award-winning cheese for two

generations. The company has recently

undergone a rebrand - updating their

logo and packaging, reflecting the

family's farming heritage as well as how

and where the cheese is produced. The

new packaging depicts the Devonshire

landscape around Home Farm, where

the cheese is made, and features the

local flora and fauna that inhabit the

region including a herd of cows, goats,

and ewes that provide the milk for

cheesemaking.

There are 11 cheese varieties, each

in its own distinct colour, for ease of

identification on the shelf. The on-pack

labels display the number of months that

each cheese has been matured for. Mary

Quicke (opposite) comments, "Cheese

is commonly perceived as a commodity

item - but there is nothing FMCG about

a handmade cheese that's been aged

for two years! I am inextricably linked to

the land and our herd; my family have

farmed this beautiful patch of Devon

for 15 generations, so it is satisfying to

see these aspects borne out in the new

designs."

Gold medalists

Colston Bassett Stilton was announced

as Reserve Champion UK and Best

Stilton at the International Cheese

Awards, held in Nantwich, Cheshire

earlier this year. Reserve Champion UK

is just one of the outstanding accolades

Colston Bassett Dairy achieved for their

Champion cheese at this year's awards.
