If you’re a fan of Easter as much as we are here at Bettys, you’ll understand when we say how for us there’s no such thing as ‘plain’ chocolate. From creamy white and silky brown to dark and glossy – not to mention all the ways it can be stippled, brushed and lovingly adorned by our chocolatiers – the quality of our chocolate makes every one of our Easter eggs a delight to behold.
As you may have gathered by now, we’re all about the good eggs at Bettys this Easter, from our largest and most spectacular creations to delicious treats for little ones. However, when it comes to our new handmade Trio of Filled Chocolate Eggs, we might need a few more words than ‘good’.
We all have our own Bettys favourites – those treats that you return to again and again, safe in the knowledge that they’ll be every bit as delicious as the last time. But what would your mum choose as her Bettys favourite?
Life's a rush, but here's an invitation: pause for a moment. Make a cup of tea, pull up a chair. Look with us at this picture - the Bettys With Love Chocolate Selection Box. Note the flowers that form a border around the lettering, arranged to form a perfectly imperfect pattern. Watercolour art made especially for us, especially for this box, by an artist we'd like you to meet.
Imagine, for a minute, that you have a time machine. Now pop back to the 1920s, drop into Bettys Café Tea Rooms in Harrogate and pick yourself up a box of Lady Betty Peppermint Creams. When you arrive back in the present, you may be surprised by how little your chocolates differ from those we sell today.
Struggling to find a really special Easter treat for a really good egg? Poach an idea from Bettys: match the Easter gift to their personality with our highly ‘scientific’ guide.
As flowers cautiously unfurl and the sun threatens to become more than a half-remembered rumour, our inventive chefs have been busy cooking up new seasonal dishes to add to our Café Tea Rooms menus. Think of it as a kind of spring clean for your tastebuds, a fiesta of fresh ingredients to awaken the senses and drive away the last of the winter cobwebs.
