What a scorcher! August 15/2018
It's been the hottest summer we've had in decades, and amongst the excitement of the beautiful sunshine, the Royal Wedding and the World Cup, the Slattery team have been busy creating and developing exciting new products for our customers.
We have an extensive chocolate bar range in our shop, with over 50 different combinations of milk, white and dark chocolate bars with various toppings to suit all tastes. As summer approached, we decided this still wasn't enough! We wanted to give our customers the opportunity to pick their perfect chocolate bar, launching our build-a-bar product at the start of August. So, how does it work? Customers can complete their order form by choosing a large or small bar, which flavour chocolate either milk, white or dark and up to 3 toppings from our wide choice of 50. Different toppings include sweets such as millions, jelly hearts and fried eggs, oreo biscuits, jaffa cakes and many more! To finish the bar, there is a choice of chocolate drizzle and finally, an occasion sticker to complete the packaging. Once completing the order form, you can watch your bar in progress through the window into our chocolate room and in approximately 15 minutes, you will have the finished product! We are also currently working towards launching our build-a-bar onto our website, so you can design your unique bar, and have it delivered to your door.
Throughout the year we offer many different cake and chocolate courses taught by our specialist tutors in our Slattery School. For the school summer holidays, we decided to offer extra children's courses and teamed up with the company, Itison Manchester, to sell our courses. There are still two courses on offer with places available. Head to our courses page to find out more details or to www.itison.com/manchester.
Could there be anything more delightful than a chocolate delivery through your letterbox once every month? We thought not! The Slattery Chocolate Society was launched in July, offering a deluxe box containing a chocolate bar from our high end single origin beans, a bar of our famous creamy milk chocolate garnished with a variety of toppings including nuts, fruits & fudge, a packet of our famous Slattery discs and two different chocolate truffles. Each month the flavours will change, enabling our subscribers to try a wide range of the products we offer at Slatterys. There are different subscription lengths and even a one month trial on offer at a special price! You can find all information on our Slattery Chocolate Society page.
Earlier in the year, we ran a survey on what our customers would like to see more of on our Sandwich take-away counter in the shop. We have taken all opinions on board and from the end of August we will be introducing some new hot food items to our takeaway menu. Customers will be able to purchase breakfast items such as sausage and bacon barms, hot sandwiches, Welsh rarebit and spicy potato wedges. We are also trialing delivery to businesses in our local area in the hope to expand in the future. Keep your eyes peeled for more information when we launch!
In July, we introduced our brand new menu in the Masons Dining Room listening to feedback from our customers on what was liked, what was needed and what needed to change. Following this, we have given some of our firm favourites a revamp and added some delicious new ideas. We have several new Vegan options on our menu as well as vegetarian and gluten free varieties. Our full menu is available here. As always, reservations are recommended in the dining room as we do get booked up in advance, particularly on Saturdays!
