From our corporate clients:
We returned to Harry Specters for a second-year running, delighted to support such a unique and worthwhile social enterprise while (of course) enjoying some delicious chocolate! Mona and her team are always exceptionally helpful and efficient in receiving our requests, including personalising the chocolates for our recipients. The chocolates ordered were designed as thank-you gifts for colleagues, and were certainly well-received.
- Aalia Datoo, Senior Solicitor, MacFarlanes
The Chocolates arrived in good time to distribute and were very well received by all. They not only looked fantastic, they tasted lovely too. The BT Sport logo on the central chocolates was a lovely idea & many recipients were touched by the ethos of the company to provide work to those special individuals who painstakingly produced the chocolates.
I must say the standard of these chocolates is outstanding & there is a good mix of white, milk & dark options. I can think of no improvement needed on this product.
- The team at BT Sport
On behalf of all of us at Business in the Community, I wanted to thank you and your wonderful team for all the beautiful chocolates which we handed out at our Awards Gala Dinner. They were absolutely beautiful and much commented on and we were delighted to be able to also give the 'thank you' boxes to our Royal Guests as they left the event, which they all commented on! I know the large numbers we required of you were an extraordinary amount of work for you to turn around. The chocolates really did add a very special touch to a great evening!"
- Gail Greengross, Director of Communications Strategy, BITC
Needless to say that I am a foodie and for the past year at Hogan Lovells, we have been looking for the best quality that we can in everything that relates to our hospitality and fine dining services, and that includes chocolates. Not only have you met our expectations with the quality, taste and flavour of your handcrafted fine chocolates, but you are also a great inspiration - considering you initially set up the business to develop the skills of young autistic people interested in cookery. A big well done for your fantastic chocolates and a big thank you for your personal commitment to your local community from all of us."
- Alain Mara, Hospitality Manager for Lusso at Hogan Lovells
- David Adair Head of Community Affairs, PwC
“We placed a last minute chocolate order for a large client event with Harry Specters and they were able to rapidly work to meet our needs. They were flexible and understood our requirements immediately, delivered ahead of schedule and the quality of the final product was impressive. We will continue to support Harry Specters as they are a true social enterprise doing good things and delivering an excellent product.”
- Matt Sparkes, Linklaters
"Our whole experience of dealing with Harry Specters has been excellent from start to finish.
The chocolates were purchased for attendees of our long service dinner, who commented at the time and the following few days after the event, how nice they were and could they have them again next year!"
- Jan Potter, Stagecoach East
“Harry Specters' chocolates are both delicious and beautifully handcrafted. They went like hot cakes at our event and the bespoke service that we received was exceptionally professional. An inspiring social enterprise marrying a great product with real social impact.”
- Alastair Wilson, Chief Executive, The School for Social Entrepreneurs
"It was a joy and pleasure to interact with Mona of Harry Specters. Through everything, she was friendly, helpful, and outgoing. And the chocolates.. well, they speak for themselves; absolutely divine. The worst part was having to choose only 2 chocolates to give to our guests - they all looked delicious. (We went for rose & cardamom and sea salt caramel, good choice). Harry Specters' chocolates made a perfect end to UnLtd's birthday event, thank you!"
- Si Martin, Culture Group
"We recently placed a large corporate order at the last minute. We were really impressed not only by the quality of these fabulous chocolates but also by the 'can-do', nothing is too much trouble attitude of the team in fulfilling our order. Rather than arrive on deadline - the order was perfectly presented and arrived earlier than we were expecting. Great service all round."
- Brigit Parker, Marketing Manager, Eastern Enterprise Hub
"I ordered boxes of chocolates as gifts for staff last Christmas. They arrived quickly and were beautifully packaged. The staff were delighted with the quality and presentation of the chocolates, which were delicious! I would recommend Harry Specters wholeheartedly - fantastic chocolates!"
- Phil Shelton, CEO, Shelton Development Services Ltd
From our Facebook friends:
"The chocs were absolutely delicious, beautifully presented as you can see. They are firmer than their continental cousins and although a couple were quite sweet, the overall taste and combinations were delightful. I love the twist to some of the recipes, like rolling a hazelnut praline in chopped hazelnuts, yummy! As for the mouthwatering Intense Coffee - I made the mistake of having this in the evening and it kept me awake part of the night....."
- Gina Smith, member of Chocolate Club
"I've had the privilege of trying some of these wonderful chocolates. Not only do they look fantastic, they taste magical."
- Jess Cunningham
"My box lasted less than a week. Sums it up really."
- Matthew O'Callaghan
"Best chocolates I've ever tasted."
- Phil Staton
"Just got my first order, a big box for me and a few smaller ones for presents. They look amazing! Doubt I'll be able to resist for 21 long days! Thank you."
- Louise Gunn
