It’s true. November seems to be full of chocolate – there’s a festival in Exeter and there are many in America from the North West Chocolate Festival to the Winter Chocolate Festival.
And of course the shops are full of it, all gearing up for the food fest treat which is Christmas – from chocolate tree decorations, to chocolate bunnies, Santas to bags and boxes of indulgence.
Sadly though, when it comes to chocolate and choices – who considers the person in the room who needs to eat a treat which is allergy free? At your party or event, do you want one person to feel left out? Do you want one guest who happens to have food allergies to chow down on a cabbage while everyone else has chocolate cake?
We are there for that one person – because that one person could be our CEO Julianne Ponan who has anaphylaxis. She has severe and life-threatening allergies and has been in intensive care several times when she’s eaten, tasted or even smelled something with an allergen.
One of the things we do at Creative Nature – and Julianne does personally – is to campaign for more awareness of food allergy and better labelling, understanding and empathy for those who have to make careful food choices.
Our latest product (out now!) can help with that. It’s been months in the creating, tasting and testing – however it’s now here – The Chocolate Cake Baking Mix which is allergy free. Priced at £2.99, you just need to add milk of your choice and some oil and you can eat tasty and safe chocolate cake.
Our Chocolate Chip Muffin Mix and Brownie Mix are already really popular so the next natural step for us was a chocolate cake baking mix. During the creation process, we tried other similar cake mixes to see what was available. We found many were:
We really hope you like this new product and please consider it if you are having a party this month. Please think of the person in the room who feels left out when it comes to treats – anyone can enjoy this cake especially the person who would normally politely refuse. Go on you can have your own mini chocolate festival – and you might even persuade someone else to bake it! Though it’s fun and easy to make yourself 1
