Quirky Chocolate has joined East Lothian-based illustrator Cheryl Jones Designs and gift company Born in Scotland to bring Buckfast lovers their new favourite treat.

The ‘Buckie Chocolate Bar’, the perfect gift for fans of the infamous tonic wine, has been made using smooth milk chocolate which has been mixed with Buckfast to create a ganache.

The Buckie Chocolate Bar is now available to buy

The fun lilac label has been designed by Cheryl Jones and the bar will be in stock at Born In Scotland, both online and in stores, throughout the festive season.

Buckfast has a notorious reputation in Scotland due to its high alcohol and caffeine content as well as its popularity among underage drinkers.

That’s why the creators of this inventive treat have jokingly urged everyone to eat responsibly and in moderation.
