The couple hope to put Nailsea on the confectionary map with their new business, which they hope to grow over the coming months.

Ruth said: “At the moment we are doing everything, from manufacturing and marketing to selling.

“But our first employee starts tomorrow, which will hopefully be the first of a few over the next 12 months.

“We are desperately excited about our new business. We want to put Nailsea on the confectionary map and we’re delighted with how well it’s been going so far.”

Ooh! Chocolata comes in 10 flavours and two different sizes.
