We came across @goupiegroupies in our local supermarket when we found a shelf filled with Kent produce which made us very happy indeed 🙌
We bought a box of these chewy centred chocolates with a hint of crunch for a picnic which went down a treat with our friends! They do two different size boxes making them perfect for lots of occasions. We caught up with the makers behind Goupie to find out more...
Describe your product?
Goupie consists of a cocoa syrup base which forms the chewiness of the chocolate, next the hint of crunch, this layer of Goupie is packed with toasted rice and biscuit, finally fully enrobed in our signature 54% Belgian dark chocolate.
How does where you live influence your work?
We're proud to be based in Goudhurst, Kent and coming from the garden of England means that the surrounding area offers lots of possibilities. We're a strong believer in sourcing ingredients locally, and that's why Kent works well for us, for example we source our Lavandin Oil used in the Lavender Goupie from The Hop Shop, and our carefully selected coffee beans for the Espresso Goupie are from The Micros Roastery in Canterbury.
Favourite place to let your hair down?
Kent is definitely not short of some fantastic spots, @leedscastleuk is a fantastic day out and boasts 500 acres of beautiful parkland and how can we not mention our favourite chill spot, The Micro Roastery in Canterbury, which is great to put your feet up and enjoy some fantastic coffee.
What you working on currently?
There's always a lot going on at the Goupie HQ, but we're currently working on is very exciting...with 2018 feeling rather royal we thought it would be the perfect time for us to launch our Union Jack Goupie's based around two great British flavours; Salted Sticky Toffee and Lemon Meringue. We're also working on making the full range vegan, which means were in the process of making our own vegan white chocolate, which is very exciting!
You can purchase a box of delicious Goupie or check out more of their flavours @goupiegroupies .
