I can’t believe how quickly Easter has come around. With it being only a matter of weeks away, and the fact that the children are on their Easter break, it definitely is time to get planning for all things Easter. With two April birthdays in our house it does feel like a month that just flies by, so need to get organised.
There are so many amazing treats around at this time of year, and many different egg-based recipes to try. One thing that I think is totally underrated, and not considered as much of a treat as it should be, is flapjack. The oaty goodness of a flapjack, mixed with sweetness, makes for an amazing treat. But would you have considered them for and Easter gift?
The Flapjackery, a Devon based flapjack maker, is definitely one to consider if you’re looking for something different this Easter. As well as their traditional collections and boxes that can get sent through the post, they have some delicious, and pretty cute looking, Easter versions of flapjack. The family and I have been lucky enough to try some of them out, and I would completely recommend some for your table this Easter, or to send to a loved one that you won’t be able to see. They certainly would arrive in better condition through the post compared to a chocolate egg.
As you can see, the design with a fried egg on top, or with mini eggs chopped into the chocolate, they certainly give a nod to the Easter season. They honestly tasted so amazing, especially the ‘millionaire’ style flapjack with a layer of caramel between the flapjack and the chocolate. You’ve got to agree with me, though – they do look super cute don’t they?
For anyone with allergies, the good news is that the flapjacks are made with gluten-free oats. The ingredient are all natural and suitable for vegetarians too. Such a luxurious product, at the end of the day.
Not only do they have Easter flapjacks, there are flapjacks for every occasion, including the rocky road flapjack that we also had the pleasure of tasting. It will certainly be a go-to for me in the future when looking for treats and gifts that can be revived through the post.
Value for money?
For three chunky slabs like these, it costs from £12, depending on the flavours that you choose. There are some boxes that have six smaller flapjack squares that cost from £14, with some luxury boxes costing from £32. So to ask if there is value for money does depend on a number of things. The flapjack bars that we tried out were chunky and tasted amazing, so I don’t think it’s unreasonable to pay £12 for them. They’re not what I’d class as cheap, but that is what makes them a treat or a nice gift, I suppose.
All in all, they taste good, look great, and can be posted right through your door. What is not to love?
Have you heard of Flapjackery before? It would be great to hear what you think.
