Here at Coco Pzazz we are celebrating our first ever stockist of the month – The High Street Delicatessen.
We got to ask them who they are, what they look for in producers and what they love about Coco Pzazz.
“When it opened in October 2015, The High Street Delicatessen in Newtown, in beautiful mid-Wales, set out to bring great tastes to the high street. Sourcing ‘local, Welsh and handpicked’ goodies, JoJo and Barrie Thomson have created a place where people can relax and relish their food. The delicatessen also responds to the growing number of shoppers who care about where their food comes from, who makes it and what goes into it. We stock well made, carefully sourced and deli-cious produce which encourages people to “shop local”. Quality can provide a compelling reason for people to look at ‘value’ as being more than just the price they pay at the till. Mr and Mrs Deli make sure they understand – and share – the stories behind products and producers … and being generous with the tasters helps too!
‘local, Welsh and handpicked’ goodies
But back to sourcing … sometimes, everything aligns and products emerge which are ‘local’, ‘Welsh’ AND ‘handpicked’. Coco Pzazz chocolates definitely fall into that category. The quality is exceptional. First and foremost, the chocolates taste amazing – that is the non-negotiable starting point for a space on the shelves at The High Street Delicatessen. From cheeky white chocolate bucks fizz chocolates (look for the surprise popping candy sensation!) to elegant Vanilla Salted Caramel, these chocolates are the perfect gift. They’re packaged beautifully and so that offers both ‘style and substance’, really important when it comes to making it into customer’s bespoke selections for seasonal hampers.
“food is the best expression of people and place”
The Welsh food sector is thriving and The High Street Delicatessen celebrates it loudly. With a loyal crowd of local customers and a growing number of visitors seeking us out, there is a real opportunity for top quality producers to become a core part of that story. Someone once told us that “food is the best expression of people and place” … and that is so true; the partnership between our delicatessen and Coco Pzazz is the perfect example of outstanding produce connecting with a local high street retailer who cares about what they stock. Long may the great tasting boxes of chocolate deli-ciousness fly off the shelves!”
