Rapidly growing and highly regarded Flapjackery has just received four Golds at the Taste of the West Awards, the South West’s prestigious food, drink and hospitality awards. This is an incredible achievement having just entered these four products.
The four luxurious products, which are all handmade in Devon, given a Gold are: Lemon Drizzle Flapjack, Peanut Butter Brownie Flapjack – made using Freda’s ‘Gold’ award-winning peanut butter, Traditional Flapjack and Burnt Caramel & Seasalt Flapjack.
Commenting on this outstanding result, co-founder Carol Myott says: “We set up Flapjackery six years ago following lots of comments on how good our flapjacks we were making for friends and family tasted. We took this feedback and have grown the business at pace from there. The last couple of years have not been easy, with a huge hit like all in March last year during the first lockdown, but we have kept going and are truly delighted to have received these awards as it is testament to the team’s hard work and determination.”
Fellow co-founder Sally Jenkin adds: “These flapjacks are hugely popular at our new Flapjackery stores in Wells and Minehead as well as our first shop in Tavistock.”
