Hamper Winners from Bloom

A huge thank you to the nearly 2,000 people who sampled our Stem Ginger and Choc Mocha cookies last weekend in the scorching sunshine at Bloom in the Park. We were overwhelmed by the positive response to both cookies and will be announcing the winning cookie shortly (so stay tuned).

Everyone who helped us was entered into a draw to win a wonderful picnic basket and a sample of our delicious cookies and five people are getting a hamper just in time to enjoy the (hopefully) long hot summer.


Congrats to:

Thursday 2nd Patrica Feighery Cabra
Friday 3rd Jane Maxwell Dun Laoghaire
Saturday 4th Marie Finn Blanchardstown
Sunday 5th Geraldine O’Rourke Knocknacarra, Galway
Monday 6th Jennifer Morgan Terenure
