Pump Street Chocolate

After my recent review of Pump Street Chocolate’s Eccles bar, I was contacted and asked if I’d be interested in writing about some of their Christmas collection. And so it was that a few days later, a delicious delivery arrived on my doorstep.

This year, Pump Street Chocolate have several Christmas themed items, which they’ve organised into different collections to suit various tastes and budgets.

Each collection comes gift wrapped with a Christmas card. I really like this approach, as it simplifies the process of finding a beautiful gift, while adding variety and giving the whole thing a touch of class. Pump Street are known for their elegantly simple packaging, but these collections have a real wow factor which is sure to get a positive response from anyone lucky enough to receive one.

That said, if you prefer to keep things simpler, all of the Christmas products are available to buy individually as well.

The first item I received was this Father Christmas made from 65% Ecuadorian dark chocolate. It comes in this attractive – and sturdy – cardboard tube that kept it in perfect condition. I know from experience that packaging irregular shaped items to be sent through the post is no easy task, so it’s great to see that it’s as effective as it is beautiful.

What does it taste like? Well I can’t actually tell you that, because this little beauty is going to be part of my own Christmas this year. But I’m pretty sure it’s going to be delicious.

The other item I was sent was a collection of Christmas themed bars in this very nice box. It’s a simple cardboard affair with a nicely printed paper sleeve, but it feels like quality. Balancing that line between simplicity, sustainability and elegance is something Pump Street do oh so well, and this box is right on point. Most importantly, it also kept the four enclosed bars in perfect condition.

The bars are:

  • Eccles 55%
  • Grenada Milk & Nutmeg 60%
  • Gingerbread 62%
  • Panettone 70%

Of course, I’ve already reviewed the Eccles 55% bar, which is absolutely fabulous. Here’s a quick summary of the others:

Grenada Milk & Nutmeg 60%

A 60% dark chocolate made with cocoa beans from the Crayfish Bay estate in Grenada and flavoured with locally grown Grenadian nutmeg.

Gingerbread 62%

Made with Pump Street Bakery’s Gingerbread Cookies spiced with ginger, cinnamon and cardamom in a Jamaican 62% dark chocolate.

Panettone 70%

A traditional Panettone made with almonds and candied fruit in a 70% St Vincent origin dark chocolate.

All in all, I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending any of the Pump Street Chocolate Christmas collections for the chocolate lover in your life. But you don’t have to limit yourself to just the Christmas themed options; I would be happy to recommend any of their creations at any time of the year. They are unique craft chocolate gifts that taste as good as they look.
