Having Betty’s on my doorstep can prove to be very handy when taking a visiting friend who hasn’t been around Yorkshire before! The perfect place for Afternoon Tea with a wide selection of cakes and biscuits alongside many hot and cold drinks. My favourite? Their Latte, with a Chocolate & Passion Fruit Cube of course!

BETTYS EASTER 2017


Bettys is without a doubt, quintessentially British, and epitomises the phrase 'afternoon tea'. Having the opportunity of being able to visit the Bettys Cafe in Harrogate regularly and each time I do so, I always order myself their 'Strawberry Ice Cream Milkshake', it is beyond delicious! So it is safe to say that I am a huge lover of all things Bettys, and I was completely blown away when I had received an incredible package, full of Bettys Easter Treats!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hazelnut & Almond Milk Chocolate Egg

Both equally as nutty and chocolatey, this egg is perfect for those who like a bit of crunch! Unfortunately this is now sold out online (no surprise there!) however, will be available at your local Bettys Cafe.

Milk & White Speckled Rabbit

A small collection of white and milk chocolate rabbits, each have been hand decorated with dark chocolate eyes and presented on a milk chocolate base!

Click here for more details.

Milk Chocolate Chick Egg

A beautifully hand-decorated Swiss Milk chocolate egg with a white chocolate chick emblazoned across it! Both equally as appealing to children, and adults. 

Purchase here.

Easter Butter Biscuits

A collection of butter biscuits in the shapes of doves, rabbits, chicks and eggs!

All of which have been decorated with Royal Icing.

Chocolate Easter Nest Cake

An absolute show-stopper! Guaranteed to win over your family and guests on Easter Sunday!

Large Chocolate & Orange Hot Cross Bun

An incredible take on the classic Easter treat, a Hot Cross Bun which has large chocolate chunks with candied orange! I particularly love the fact that this can be cut as if it was a cake.

Purchase here.

Milk Chocolate Egg with Handmade Chocolates

Wrapped in Gold Foil, a stunning display of handmade chocolates are encased within the Swiss Grand Cru Milk Chocolate Egg!

They include Rose and Violet Creams alongside Vanilla Caramel Hearts.

BETTY'S CHRISTMAS RANGE 2016


I can almost 100% guarantee you that whenever you mention the town 'Harrogate', the immediate sentence afterwards will be; 'Ooo is that where Betty's is? It's lovely!' 100%, I'm telling you.

So when I received the invitation to attend their Magical Christmas Bloggers Event, I felt as though I had achieved a personal goal! Betty's is without a doubt a household name, and a British staple for all things tea and cake. Despite having gone to the Betty's in Harlow Carr (an area within Harrogate), I had never actually visited the one in central Harrogate, I know, it's shocking!

Prior to attending the event, for some reason unbeknownst to me, I was rather nervous... More so than any other event I had attended before! However, as I made my way upstairs, the nerves quickly disappeared, and I met the lovely ladies; Sunshine SarahThe Harrogate Girl who was the host for the afternoons event, and Harrogate Mama! As I took in the stunning sights of the table displays, I was in awe of the sheer attention to detail, and how grand, yet versatile they each looked.

TABLE ONE:

  • Christmas Spice - The most traditional table out of the three, with dashes of the classic colours, reds and greens, with elegant gold tones, inspired by the scents and smells of Christmas Baking!

TABLE TWO:

  • Continental Elegance - This table grabbed my attention straight away due to the show-stopping Swiss Alpine Village! Out of the three tables, this was my favourite. I loved how traditional the table setting was, yet it had a modern twist to it.

TABLE THREE:

  • Winter Snow - A modern table, decorated in silvers and golds. Highly elegant, and one that has a 'Winter Wonderland' feel to it! 

After having taken countless photographs, we then sat down ready for some afternoon tea. As a newbie to the 'Tea World', I opted for the 'China Rose Petal' as it sounded rather pretty.. Presumptuous, I know. However, I seemed to have struck gold with my choice as this was truly delicious! For starters I had several scones with cream and jam, followed by small portions of food to nibble on, ending with gorgeous little bites of their desserts! I must say, their desserts were exceptional, with the little red, dark chocolate square being a firm favourite of mine. Much to my disappointment, unfortunately the red chocolate squares aren't available to purchase, however they are exclusive to the 'Lady Betty Afternoon Tea' upstairs in the Imperial Room! A perfect excuse to go back for more right?

Once we had our food, we were then split into three groups for the afternoon's activities. The first activity began by us unwrapping our gift from underneath the Christmas Tree, in which I received their 'Christmas Stollen'! A spiced fruit bread layered with marzipan, dipped in melted butter and rum, topped off with fine sugar. Delicious!

For our next activity, we were told by the inspiration of some of the Christmas Treats, and the process of how each one is made and where their inspiration came from. The most fascinating treat for me, was their little chest of drawers, in which each drawer had dozens of chocolates hidden away inside. The inspiration behind that, was a trip abroad where one of the chefs stumbled across a small jewellery cabinet and came back to recreate that! Our last activity, we were taken around each of the three tables as mentioned previously.

As the event drew to a close, we were given a goody bag which consisted of a £10 gift voucher! I am still yet to use that voucher.. Do you have any suggestions on what I should buy? I left the event on a high, and I feel very honoured to have been asked to such a wonderful event. To view the Betty's Christmas Range in full, you can click here for more treats!
