Ryan Tubridy on what “Enrobed” means?

To celebrate St Patricks Day and all things Irish, we sent some of our biccies to some well known Irish celebs. Ryan Tubridy was particularly taken with our “Enrobed” choc chunk cookies, and raised the question “What does enrobed mean?”

Officially the dictionary states that “Enrobed” means “to coat (an item of food) in chocolate”

Yes, we could have called them coated, or covered, but we love the sumptuous sound of ENROBED………. Mmmmmmm!
