Welsh Chocolatier Launches Battle of Britain Commemorative Bar for the RAF Association

RAFA BarsA Welsh Chocolate Company has launched a commemorative chocolate bar to mark the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain. The chocolate bar launches in conjunction with the Royal Air Forces Association, the charity that supports the RAF family.

 The 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain is to be marked with the launch of a new range of chocolates. The commemorative range is being launched by a Welsh chocolate company in conjunction with the Royal Air Forces Association.

www.WickedlyWelsh.co.uk launched in April 2014, making waves in the local community thanks to its award winning chocolate and range of unusual and exciting flavour combinations. The company, which is based in Pembrokeshire, was founded by husband and wife duo Mark and Karen Owen.

The chocolate manufacturer is set to launch a commemorative chocolate bar to mark the anniversary of the Battle of Britain, which took place during the summer and autumn of 1940. The battle, which saw an air campaign waged by the German air force against the UK, claimed around 40,000 lives.

The range comes in partnership with the Royal Air Forces Association, a registered charity which provides welfare support to the RAF family.  The range will see bars launched with British flavours such as ‘Tea and Biscuits’ and ‘Rhubarb Crumble and Custard’ as well as gift boxes with both nostalgic and fun flavours such as Strawberries and Cream, Salted Caramel and Raspberry with Vodka.

The chocolates will be available in Wickedly Welsh’s factory shop, based on the Withybush Industrial estate, Haverfordwest, as well as via the factory’s online store.

Mark Owen, Chief Taster and Chocaholic at Wickedly Welsh Chocolate, made the following comment:  “It’s great to be able to launch this chocolate range in association with the RAF Association. It’s the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain this year and we have friends currently serving in the RAF so it’s an honour to be chosen to commemorate this with them.”He continued:“We really feel passionate about doing something to help and to highlight the amazing men and women of the RAF both past and present. It’s also a chance for us to have some real fun with some fantastic British flavours. Proceeds will benefit the Association, so we really do hope members of the public get behind this and support the charity.”

Paul Baker, the Association’s Director of the Wales, Midland and South Western Area, said: “We’re very grateful to the Wickedly Welsh Chocolate Company for choosing the Association as the recipient of donations from the sale of this exciting new range of flavours. I don’t know many people who don’t like chocolate, so this is a great way to enjoy a treat while raising money to help us support members of the RAF family when they need us.”
