The tiny French town of La Clichée had a seriously big problem: nobody there got anything done. Instead they sat in petit cafés all day. The baguettes never got baked. The bouffants never got bouffed. The beret factory was completely deserted. Until The Baron came to their rescue and created Le Breakfast Bar. It delivers a hit of extra-strong Rich coffee and an indulgence of buttery croissant, with every bite. Et voila, La Clichée-ites could get their café fix on the go, and now you can too.
Clayton McErlane has been creating chocolate creations since 2012. As a trained chef, Clayton has always been interested in unique flavours. When Chris visited Wellington in 2016 he scored some of their Wellington bars and some wicked salted caramel logs - we knew then that once the Baron converted to making their own chocolate "from bean to bar" they'd become a great chocolate maker. They made the switch in 2019 and it hasn't slowed down their creativeness. In 2020 Clayton helped our friend Luke Smith (The Chocolate Bar, NZ) create his first chocolate bar. In 2021 they created a cross-Tasman partnership with Melbourne's Birdsnake chocolate. In 2021 they also ran a successful crowd funding campaign, raising $50K to fund some much needed new machines. We're sure they're going to be around for a while so we can't wait to share more of their amazing creations with you soon!
