Seasonal Sweets by Scoff


Not that I ever needed any excuse whatsoever to eat fudge but... with the days getting shorter and colder and the festive season fast approaching (I'm not sure if I'm quite ready to say the C-word just yet) I've been hankering after certain Winter flavours. It just so happens that Scoff Sweets, a favourite of mine since I first encountered their vegan chocolate fudge in a past The Vegan Kind box, have come up trumps this year and added some winter-themed treats to their collection.




Obviously, upon hearing the news, it took me less than 6 seconds to navigate my way to their website for a nosey... Subsequent purchases were made. Scoff are a little handmade confectionary shop tucked away in Brixton who offer a gorgeous range of vegan and gluten-free items. Their philosophy is that delicious, decadent treats shouldn't be off-limits to vegans and those with food intolerances so they've come up with an irresistible range of fudge, truffles and cakes for any occasion. Their products are a combo of soya/coconut creams, sunflower marg, golden syrup and fairtrade sugar with additions of dried fruit.


The items I dropped into my online basket were their special edition Toffee Apple Fudge, their White Chocolate and Raspberry Fudge and this sweet little box of dark chocolate truffles. I'm not willing to disclose exactly how long they lasted before I demolished the lot but I did try to exercise some sort of restraint. Nothing that a couple of extra gym sessions won't solve. The Toffee Apple Fudge was the first to fall prey. It brought back memories of bonfire toffee and has a delightful chew to it thanks to caramelised apple chunks. The white choc and raspberry didn't disappoint either. Other seasonal offerings include crystallised ginger fudge.

If you're looking for festive stocking filler ideas, the bags are perfectly gift-sized and so well presented. The truffles (which are out of this world, by the way) come in a pretty little box wrapped with a ribbon and are also available with amaretto or coconut.

Scoff's offerings are reasonably priced for a handmade product at £3.50 for fudge (150g bag) and £4.50 for a box of 6 truffles. They were extremely fast to ship too so plenty of time to stock up in time for... nah, I'm still not gonna say the C-word.
