Vegan Chocolate Christmas Gift Guide 2020

At Friars, we don’t take Vegan food lightly. To us, before the launch of Vegan Chocolatier, good quality vegan chocolates were very hard to come by, that’s because so many chocolate manufacturers simply just removed the milk from the chocolate recipe, leaving a dark and often bitter chocolate behind. We do things a little differently here, by using the finest plant based ingredients to craft our growing range of Kakoa Vegan chocolates. What better gift to give to your vegan family and friends than some lovingly crafted vegan chocolates. These... Read More

This year we have a delightful three tiered design with each layer dedicated to either milk, white or dark chocolate. The box is then hand tied and decorated with three shooting stars. Our larger 24 chocolate box is a real show stopper. Filled... Read More

An Alternative Black Friday With Homeless Charity Shelter

Here at Friars we feel the whole black Friday thing is a little tasteless. Apparently we now have cyber Monday where further fantastic reductions are available. We do various promotions throughout the year, that see a genuine saving past onto the customer, we never artificially inflate prices only to offer a huge money off promotions. This is not to say everyone does this but it is starting to become more common. Anyways, enough of the rambling; this year for black Friday we have decided to swim against the tide. We... Read More
