Recently I was contacted by the brilliant team over at The Treat Kitchen, who asked me if I would like to sample some of the delicious products from their sweet shop. Later this year, The Treat Kitchen will be opening two more stores – Coventry and Meadowhall, Sheffield.
The Treat Kitchen was established in 2014 and is a gourmet confectionery retailer selling over 300 different varieties of sweets, chocolates, hand made fudge and so much more.
Upon first glance of their website, I was pleased to see gluten free, vegan, sugar free and vegetarian sweets are available from The Treat Kitchen. I have many friends who live a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle, but I also know others who have a food intolerance. It’s great to see businesses like The Treat Kitchen embracing what customers desire.
Radioactive Blue Raspberry Sours
If you’re a fan of extremely sour sweeties, the Radioactive Sours will be perfect for you. The packaging includes the warning: “continued consumption within a short space of time will cause irritation of the mouth or stomach.” Of course, I was scared. I still gave them a good try but I couldn’t handle the sourness. My housemate managed to have some though and enjoyed these.
From the Sweet Shop Heroes range, the coconut mushrooms taste exactly how I remember they did from my childhood. The Sweet Shop Heroes collection also includes other favourites such as gobstoppers and foam bananas.
Diddy Pear Drops
All of The Treat Kitchens classic boiled sweets are made in the traditional sweet making methods, e.g. using big copper boiling pans. I have a love/hate relationship with pear drops but I did enjoy these.
I’ve saved the best until With over 50 flavour varieties to choose from, The Treat Kitchen will have the perfect truffle for you. I was sent these gorgeous boozy truffles to try, whisky and a strawberry & champagne truffle. These truffles really didn’t disappoint at all, each truffle melted in my mouth.
What a wonderful first experience this was of The Treat Kitchen. Be sure to head to the store once it opens at Meadowhall in September, or you can also treat yourself via The Treat Kitchen website. I can’t wait for their Meadowhall store to open! I can imagine it’ll be like sweetie heaven. Judging by the samples I was sent, the store will be a unique but very tasty experience.
