Pass the Buckie, yyeeeeooooooo!!!
A weekend in Glasgow wouldn't be the same without a bottle of Buckfast taking centre stage. The Buckie Chocolate Bar is an altogether more grown up affair. Smooth milk chocolate is mixed with Buckfast to create a surprisingly tasty ganache. Buckfast chocolate has it's tongue very firmly in cheek. But please - grow up and eat responsibly. In moderation if you please!
- Handmade in Scotland by Quirky Chocolate.
- Made from sustainably sourced Belgian milk chocolate

The tipple with a notorious reputation in Scotland, Buckfast does have a distinctly Scottish connection, just for all the wrong reasons. The famous Tonic Wine has been made by the monks of Buckfast Abbey in Devon since 1897 - and consumed by underage Scottish drinkers for almost as long. With a high alcohol content as well as being packed with the same amount of caffeine as 8 cans of cola, Buckfast has earned itself the nickname "Wreck the Hoose" juice in Scotland.
