We’re nuts about these!!


TAOS Gifts have just got stock of a new yummy chocolate range from Hider Foods, and we are seriously impressed about the quality and taste.

Our favourite in the range has to be the Orange and Macadamia Clusters, they are made from chopped up pieces of almonds and macadamia nuts mixed with fruity orange peel and covered in the creamiest milk chocolate. Each bag contains 95g, enough for 2 generous servings, you could always share a bag with a friend…

Other flavours in the range include Raspberry and Yogurt Clusters covered in white chocolate, Jumbo Raisins covered in white and milk chocolate and Salted Pretzels covered in milk chocolate.  They are all priced at £2.50 a bag except the pretzels which are only £1.50 each. Treat yourself, you deserve it!

The mini egge are also ideal for all round little sweet treats (whilst stocks last of course), but you may find it hard not to eat them all in one sitting….

No Sugar Added Easter Eggs


We have not forgotten about those looking to reduce their sugar intake this Easter at TAOS Gifts, and this year we have a range of Stevia No Added Sugar Easter chocolate by Cavalier that is kinder to teeth and does not have any side effect (unlike some traditional no added sugar chocolate sweetened with maltitol). Stevia No Added Sugar chocolate is suitable for diabetics as part of a controlled diet, and a tasty chocolate alternative to the boring dark chocolate they are normally advised to eat. Remember to be treat wise though!
