Our Hugs

Original Hug in a Mug​

In 2020 the world began a transition that would completely change the way we work and interact with each other. We spent the first two weeks of March hiding in bed crying. Yet again, We were seeing our business being ripped apart by unexpected circumstances. 

At the beginning of the third week, we realised that the best way to get a hug was to give a hug, and that was the beginning of Post A Little Happiness. We started by attaching bags of tea to postcards and sending them to every one we knew. The reaction was unbelievable. It turned out that we were not the only ones feeling the destruction and confusion of the moment. The fact that we had taken the time to just ask how someone was helped so many people that it got us thinking about how we could combine the creativity of our food business and the desire for people to be seen and heard.

We have come a long way since that moment

Happy Birthday Hug

One afternoon, we were doing what we call blue skying. It basically is that we do not feel like working. So we either go for a walk or sit out in the garden and stare at the sky. 

We were contemplating the idea of how to create a hug that would allow us to feel like it really was a celebration. We had been asked to make an afternoon tea and having lived in the U.K for quite a while. An afternoon tea would not be the same with out champagne. While we were lazily staring at the sky, we started looking for champagne inspired ideas by post and came across a company called VINOS The real Wine Gum company. Imagine. Wine gums that taste of wine! How cool is that!.

 

We gave them a call and got straight through to the owner. We had seen on their website that they had rose, merlot, and sauvignon blanc but they had no champagne. It turned out that the following week they would be taking delivery of champagne wine gums. It seem like serendipity. So we order 100 and became the first company to have them in Holland. 

So now the champagne afternoon was complete. Which meant we also had champagne for all the other celebrations. And the most important was the birthday.

All the fun of a party in an envelope.

Wish them Happy birthday

Double hug.jpeg

Double Hug

It was one of our regular clients who asked if it was possible to put hugs in one envelope. It seemed a bit silly to send two hugs to one address. We had to change the size of our envelopes but we were happy to oblige.

Champagne Afternoon Tea

This came about because a neighbour asked if we could organise an afternoon tea. It made us wonder if we could create the same idea but to be delivered through the letterbox. 

Finding the box size was quite difficult, then we had to change the way we made our teabag covers. Then there was the idea bout how do we add champagne. (See birthday hug for more on that story)

Then there was the client who gave us our biggest transformation. NO plastic.

Although we have removed 95% from the wrapping our famous butterfly is proving challenging. And ofcourse we need to have a selection of cakes. No afternoon tea would be perfect without that. so here we have it. Afternoon tea.

 

 

6 assorted hand made cakes. Examples being Chocolate truffle tart, lavender short bread, lemon blondie, Almond & raspberry tart, chocolate brownie, Christmas pie.

4 hand made Teas.

Two small champagne flavoured wine gums.

Zoom Ready Hug

For this Postalittlehappiness we have joined forces with award winner @gaiapraktijk Therapist of the Year 2020 Dr Hauschka

Ever had one of those days where you thought YES! I have the day free for my self so I am going to indulge in a little self care. You lovingly clean your face and gentle smear your favourite moisturising face mask. Perhaps while you are waiting for the mask to do its magic, you make yourself a cup of tea and kick back and catch up on your latest novel. Then it happens. Your boss calls you. All hell has broken loose and you have to go into a Zoom Meeting immediately. In your rush to get on line you completely forget that your face is covered in bright purple clay. Even months later people still talk about it!

This will never have to happen again with our ZOOM Meeting Happiness box.

Each box contains 2 delicious cakes, 3 tea bags and a revitalising face mask from Dr. Hauschka which renews, refines, and enliven your skin. And the best thing about it, is that you do not see it and you do not need to clean it off!

No more embarrassing unexpected zoom meetings!

The idea is to make a pot of tea. Remove the tea bags and while you wait for the teabags to cool down, enjoy your tea and cakes. Once you have finished, you put the mask on your face, scan the QR code on your card which will take you to a relaxing play list. Put the tea bags on your eyes, lie back and enjoy!

And if the worst should happen that an unexpected zoom meeting should happen. You will look glowing and relaxed. Ready to deal with any emergency!!

Perfect gift for yourself! or your secretary or any person who you know spends too much time on line in meetings

2 handmade cakes, 3 bespoke teas, Dr Hauschka Revitalising Mask, QR code to relaxing play list, butterfly and personalised message.

Brownie Only Hugs

These are what we call REAL Brownies. These are not heavy like fudge brownies. They are moist in the middle and a little crispy of the outside. They actually taste of chocolate. and we use Callebaut chocolate because...we like it.

 

We have made brownies all over the world. We have eaten brownies from all over the world. And we have only eaten one brownie that came anywhere near what we thought a brownie should taste and be. Unfortunately we have forgotten the name of the girl who made them otherwise we would give her a shoutout.

 

What is also amazing about our brownies is that they taste like they say on the label AND they are gluten and lactose free as standard. Unless we actually say differently on the label. Such as the white chocolate brownies, because, well, they contain white chocolate and white chocolate contains milk. See what we mean?

White Chocolate Hug

When we first started making brownies, the original recipe had walnuts in it. We don't really like walnuts. As the kids were young we thought about putting white chocolate into them. Well that turned out to be a success. We have made thousands of these since. Although my children have now moved on to more sophisticated tastes. These still are their favourite brownies

Double Chocolate Brownie Hug

We have a friend who really really loves chocolate. So we came up with the idea of just adding dark chocolate pieces as well as white chocolate. We only use Callebaut chocolate so if you like chocolate you are so going to love these!

Triple Chocolate Hug

When Callebaut came out with ruby chocolate , we thought we had to find a way to use this amazing fruity chocolate in our brownies. It is an amazing combination of red fruits, slightly sour and vanilla, which goes amazingly well with white and dark chocolate. Very grown up.!!

Orange, Chocolate, chili Hug

To be honest we are not really big fans of chocolate. however, we do love the combination of orange and chocolate. And it was a chinese chicken dish that gave us the inspiration for adding chili to the chocolate and orange. You don't taste the chili until the end. It is just a hint but you know it is there. It's Yum!

Chocolate Caramel Coconut Hug

We have a friend who adores dark chocolate bounty. We wanted to create a brownie for him. When we first made this it was so dry. You would have found more water in the desert than in this cake.

We also could not really taste the coconut even though we had packed the brownie with the grated coconut. We decided to roast the coconut which improved its flavour really well, but we were still stuck with it being a bit dry.

 

A client had ordered a mississippi mud pie which has a delicious chocolate caramel on the top of it. As an afterthought we thought why not combine the chocolate caramel with the coconut brownie en et voila! The perfect solution. Chocolatey caramel and roasted coconut with soft dark chocolate brownie. Double yum!

Apricots

Apricot Almond Chocolate Hug

This actually came about as a vegan cake. Although we messed up on the labelling. But thats another story! When we were experimenting with what we could substitute for egg in our cake, we had made a basic brownie mix which we split into three. Making double or triple brownies seemed too easy and we are always wanting to push the boundaries of flavours. We had recently bought some semi dried apricots which just looked delicious and chewy. The right kind of chewiness that would go with the richness of our brownies. And ofcourse Almonds are just tinder swipe right for apricots. Oh this was so good. And the vegan version worked well. And this is just brilliant!

Naked Brownie Only Hugs

A few years ago we were asked to take over an inhouse restaurant for an interior design company. It was a strange situation to be in. The clients were willing to pay 10,00 euros for a table but did not want to pay more than 2,50 for a hand made sandwich. The owner had a secretary who did not like chocolate but loved the texture of brownies. so I invented the the naked brownie for her. Or so I thought! Turns out naked brownies are actually called blondies. Well at least the name is mine.

Pistachio Rosewater

Pistachio Rosewater Hug

If you have ever been to the middle east you will have been offered at least once baklava with rich dark coffee. The combination of Pistachio and rosewater is so evocative of long hot days, and balmy star filled night skies. We roast our pistachios and grind them by hand. We add real rose water to the cake mix. The syrup is also made with real rose water. It is sweet without being too perfumey.

Elderflower & Lemon Hug

There is something magical about the combination of lemon with elderflower. There is something so summery about it and romantic. Maybe this is why it is one of the most popular flavours for a wedding cake. Ours are made with heaps of fresh lemon zest, fresh lemon juice and elderflower syrup. It's so delicious.

Coconut & Lime Hug

Sticky date.

Sticky Date Hug

In the UK this would be a dessert. It would be served warm with clotted cream. It is a rich date cake that has a beautiful caramel sauce poured over it while still warm. Our recommendation is that this is put in the microwave for 10 seconds (Quel horror) but aversions to microwaves aside, it is worth doing this. It is absolutely delicious.

Pecan Caramel.

Pecan Caramel Hug

When we first made this, we thought it a good idea to dip the cakes in warm maple syrup.

 

We then received a request for cakes without fructose. This meant that we could not use the maple syrup. Plus if we are honest, it seemed to neutralise the cinnamon flavour in the cake. We had some left over caramel from the sticky date hug, and that just seemed to be the magic touch. You can really taste the roasted pecan with the cinnamon and the caramel just adds something special.

Poppy Seed Orange Hug

This is a cake that came about in much the same way as the pecan caramel hug. We had a request for cake without fructose. How were we going to make a cake packed with flavour yet not using any fruit? Say hello to the magic of zest. the cake itself is packed with poppy seeds and orange zest. We then made a syrup using heaps of fresh orange zest. It is so beautiful. And the client was over the moon.

Tart Only Hugs

There is something about made hand made pastry. Especially when it comes freshly out of the oven. The luxurious combination of butter, flour, sugar & eggs with just a hint of vanilla is something so divine. This option if for real connoisseurs of tarts. Or for people who just love sweet things in tiny forms.

Dark Chocolate Truffle Hug

What can we tell you about these beautiful tarts?

Dark chocolate pastry with a hint of hazelnuts. Smooth dark chocolate from Callebaut ganache that has five mins in the oven to give an extra dimension. This is the type of tart that you take your time over. It takes time to make and it surely deserves time to eat.

And no it is not gluten, lactose or wheat free. sorry

Christmas Hug

This has got to be my son Freddie’s favourite hug. He loves them so much he wants to eat them all year round.

 

These are little pies made with a butter rich pastry and fresh orange zest. They are packed with every dried fruit imaginable, heaps of cinnamon, fresh orange zest, granny smith apples and lots of nuts. Christmas every day!

And no it is not gluten, lactose or wheat free. sorry

The Almond Raspberry Hug

Do you know what jam tarts are.? Oh the joys of school cookery lessons. The thing was that the jam was always the cheapest stuff they could find. Then Bonne Mamon came out with an amazing raspberry jam that had very little sugar and is more like a puree than a jam. Then you have the crazy dutch addiction to "Spice: otherwise known as a kind of marzipan or as the french call it "Frangipane". Combine those two ingredients into beautifully made  pastry shells. This is the kind of tart angels dream off.

 

And no it is not gluten, lactose or wheat free. sorry

Apple Pie.jpeg

The Apple Pie Hug

Years age, in fact it almost seems like another lifetime ago. We used to make the apple pies for a local tourist attraction. Every week through the summer we would deliver between 20 - 40 apple pies. Each pie was made with butter rich pastry. We tried to put as much apple in as possible. 

One day we were in Antwerp and got speaking to a really lovely lady on a terrace. After a few glasses of bubbles we got to talking about cake. she then proceeded to wax lyrically about an apple pie that she had had in earlier in the year. She said it was so amazing, not to sweet, the right balance of cinnamon, and NO rasins. This was very important in her eyes. Turned out that she was talking about our apple pie!!

So these are teeny tiny versions of those pies.

And no it is not gluten, lactose or wheat free. sorry
