Win a Chocolate Badger for Easter!
Not a bunny. Not a chick. Not an egg. But a badger!
Isn’t he marvellously, madly, adorably gorgeous?
Bettys have a wide range of Easter treats including more conventionally-shaped chocolate products and a delicious range of cakes and bakes. But it’s their Milk Chocolate Badgers that caught my eye. Made from Swiss milk chocolate and hand decorated with milk, white and dark chocolate, they weigh 330 grams and cost £20 each.
You don’t have to be Brian May to send these cuties to your friends this Easter!
Bettys is a family business which began back in 1919. Frederick Belmont, a young orphan from Switzerland, spent his teens in apprenticeships working for and learning from bakers and confectioners across Europe. By the time he arrived here in England, he had dreams of opening his own business. Through fortune and luck, he made his way to Bradford, and found the beautiful countryside of the region reminded him of his Swiss homeland. He decided to stay, and opened the first Bettys Cafe Tea Rooms in Harrogate. His combination of European confectionery and a warm welcome was a huge success. In the following years, he opened a craft bakery with its own orchard and then more branches of Bettys in other Yorkshire towns.
In the 1960s, Bettys bought another well-established Yorkshire business, the tea and coffee merchants, Taylors of Harrogate. The combination remains a strong one. Today, the company runs six tea rooms, a cookery school, the tea and coffee business and a thriving online store.
I’ve tried some of their cakes and can vouch for how good they are.
Bettys are offering one of their Milk Chocolate Badgers to one lucky Kavey Eats reader this Easter. The prize includes free delivery within the UK.
