What a year it’s been for White Rabbit!
We’ve enjoyed some tremendous successes, including a surge in popularity of our café which we launched two years ago, new partnerships with other independent artisan businesses, and more recently the very exciting launch of our new shop in Hull’s Paragon Arcade.
But what you might not know is we’ve also hit another major milestone – our truffle production has gone through the roof and we are making on average more than 1,000 of these little bundles of joy every day! Demand for the delectable treats has certainly kept Amy and Kathy incredibly busy in the kitchen, however you’ll no doubt be pleased to know that every single one is still hand-crafted with love.
Amy Fenner, our resident kitchen goddess who has now moved up the ranks to become White Rabbit’s master chocolatier, said: “I think our range of truffles really capture people’s imagination, and they are such an affordable yet luxurious treat. We put a lot of creativity and care into making them, and they are so pretty to look at I know some customers say they feel guilty for eating them!
“We’ve had a few seasonal special editions this year that have gone down well, including our Toffee Apple truffle which we launched specially for the Halloween and bonfire night period. We’ve also linked up with other local suppliers for some, such as using Side Oven’s wonderful elderflower cordial in our Strawberry and Elderflower truffle.”
Some truffles remain enduringly popular throughout the year. Amy added: “Our most popular truffle at the moment is the award-winning Blackberry and Juniper, and the Buck's Fizz and Christmas Pudding truffles have proved a firm festive favourite now we’re in the thick of the Christmas season.”
Guidance on hand
Customers can buy truffles individually at the shop or go online to choose from medium or large boxes containing either milk or dark chocolates, or the option of a ‘boozy’ box.
Amy said: “All our shop staff can guide and advise customers whether they are buying for themselves or for someone else as a gift. There really is something to suit everyone’s tastes, and part of the fun is browsing the range and seeing what takes your fancy.”
