A WORLD-LEADING chocolate expert has joined forces with a confectionery maker to launch a new range of ‘naughty but nice’ sweet treats featuring CBD oil.
TV star Andy Baxendale says the range will cater for people who love chocolate but want their ‘naughty’ treat to have an added twist.
Andy, known in the industry as The Sweet Consultant, has created the CBD range for Northumberland company Sweetdreams.
The products combine CBD with a milk, white or dark chocolate coating, and include; solid dark chocolate balls, malt balls, almonds, goji berries, cranberries, honeycomb and yoghurt-coated fruits.
One of the reasons chocolate is so popular is that eating a small amount of sugar creates a release of serotonin – known as the happy chemical, said Andy, in a press release.
The Sweetdreams’ technical director says chocolate is an ‘easy medium for people to eat, especially now if they feel that their ‘naughty treat has some benefit in the form of the addition of CBD oil – kind of naughty but nice’.
Andy has 24 year’s experience in the confectionery business and a Master of Science (MSc) in Advanced Food Manufacture.
He was one of the stars of the hit BBC 2 confectionery show The Sweet Makers.
