Goupie – Kentish Christmas Gift Guide
Goupie is a uniquely textured, cocoa-rich, handmade chocolate confectionery with a toasted rich crunch. Think Tiffin! It was a treat that was enjoyed by the Noble family for as long as anyone can remember and in 2010, batches of Goupie made to the original family recipe started to become available in local cafes and shops. Just nine years later it is now enjoyed nationwide and we can see why!
Goupie specialises in stocking independent retailers, farm shops, delis, boutique hotels, vineyards and health food shops. They only ever use 100% natural ingredients and source local produce where possible. Their cocoa is fair-trade, the palm oil is RSPO certified and their packaging is 100% recyclable or compostable because they want to make products which don’t cost the Earth; literally or metaphorically.
Their ranges are vegan friendly and in most cases gluten-free. They were also recently awarded 2 gold stars in the 2019 Great Taste Awards for their Salted Sticky Toffee and Date & Walnut Goupie.
The mini packs start at £2.50 and standard Goupie start at £4.50, you can order from their website or they are available in many local stockists including many Kentish co-op stores, Morrisons branches, Biddenden Vineyard, Macknade Fine Foods and Sissinghurst Castle.
