Presenting… CORPORATE CACAO!

Want to treat your clients or employees to a little treat?
We can work together to create your very own bespoke Chocolate Bars!

We recently created these Orange & Chilli Chocolate Bars for

These were entirely custom; we worked with Mike to create his own flavour (orange for a hint of festive, and chilli for power and strength - just like his training!), his choice of colour and packaging with his own message and logo.

Starting from 30 bars for £100.

Get in touch via [email protected] to start creating your own! All information is available on our website.

🌟 5 STAR REVIEW 🌟

We recently received the most wonderful 5 star review from a recent Bride and Groom! Thank you so much, this review really made our hearts happy.

Reviews make or break a small business, in a world that can feel like it is full of so much negativity, positive reviews really mean the world to us, and other small businesses too! Sometimes it seems like it is so easy for people to complain, but it takes a lot more effort to go out of our way to say something nice. Whilst constructive criticism is something that is so useful to us (and we welcome it, it influences a lot of what we do!), positive reviews are something that really do make people who run small businesses do a little happy dance. Thank you to Lotty and Paul, and all of our lovely customers, for their kind words.

“Hala (Abda & Sophie) made our three tier ‘naked’ wedding cake in September. It was everything we wanted and more - just beautiful and tasted amazing. The communication in the weeks prior to our wedding was spot on and they really got our vision. The top tier was made as reduced sugar because myself and a few guests are type 1 diabetic - they went above and beyond to accommodate this. We really couldn’t recommend Hala enough for creating a beautiful wedding cake. Thank you, Lotty & Paul x”

5 years!!! Today, Claire and Sophie have been with us for 5 whole years. 
They have both put up with me for 5 years…What a milestone! Happy Abda-versary!

Claire was one of our first customers. I still vividly remember, she would normally be one of the first customers of the day, and we spent a lot of time chatting about our travels and the world. So it almost felt like kismet when she came to work with us. In the past five years, we have grown our families, our hearts and our friendship together. She is now less involved in Abda, but is our Head Chocolatier at Hala.
Thank you Claire for continuing to work with me to build our dream. Your beautiful and bright personality makes working with you and absolute joy!

Head over to to read about Soph’s time with us so far…

Please give Claire some love in the comments!
