This was Slab’s first fully vegan event and we were really excited to attend, but also a little nervous. We are not a 100% vegan company as we obviously sell our dairy fudge, so were slightly worried that people would wonder what we were doing there. However, we are pleased to report that our vegan range went down an absolute storm in Southampton, with us running out of supplies mid way through Sunday!
And having had such a positive and enjoyable experience in Southampton, we are now booked up for VegFest in Brighton in March. And also VeganLife shows in both London in February and Manchester in April. So it’s already looking like a busy start to 2018!
And in case you couldn’t make it – you can always buy some Slab Vegan Fudge right here – Vegan Slabs

We know what you’re thinking? What’s a company that uses dairy to make their fudge (full disclosure – we also run an ice cream shop!) doing making a vegan alternative? Well, it’s our thinking that if we can do our bit by offering a vegan alternative to our dairy fudge, which we believe is just as tasty, then that can’t be a bad thing, right!
Made with coconut cream rather than dairy, we are using our fudge skills to try and make a truly fantastic vegan fudge, with more flavours to come soon.
Slab’s final event of the summer was a weekender at Wolverton Manor for the Garden Fair and boy was it a game of two halves!
On arrival at the fabulous grounds of Wolverton we began our set up amidst all the craft and plant stalls in the glorious sunshine. The sun continued to bless us throughout Saturday and we were throwing out tasty Slabs like there was no tomorrow!
But tomorrow did come, and unfortunately the Sunday forecast was accurate.. heavy rain for the entire day! Only the keenest craft and plant enthusiasts braved the (typical English) weather, but at Slab HQ we managed to get some fairy lights up and entice people into our cosy enclave with samples of fudge. As it turns out, fudge cheers people up when they’re feeling a bit gloomy. Who knew?
And if you need to ever order some more supplies, Slab Artisan Fudge is always available to buy at our shop Bliss Ice Cream Parlour in Cowes, or online at – Slab Online Shop. Free delivery on all orders over £10!
Slab are ready to rock at the very first I Love Wight Street Food Market, the sun is shining and the atmosphere is bubbling! The setting right by the river is idyllic as hungry people mill about soaking up the rays and perusing the tantalising food options.
Along with Slab’s regular 12 flavours, for this event we (as always) have some limited edition flavours to get your hands on – Tiger Butter (peanut butter with chocolate and caramel), Stracciatella (vanilla fudge with dark chocolate pieces), Rhubarb + Custard and, making it’s debut, Peach Cobbler (peach fudge with shortbread crumble pieces).
There are some fabulous savoury food stalls here (shout out to Dumpling Dumpling, Salty Willy’s and Souporium) so if you’re passing by or on your lunch break pop down any Friday between 10:30-4pm, sit in the sun for half an hour and enjoy some tasty treats whilst at the same time being able to feel great for supporting some fantastic local artisan producers!
However, if you are not nearby and unable to grab a Slab, remember you can always order online – Click Here
Here we are at the third I Love Wight market in Brading, and it is the end of May already. Summer is upon us once again! This monthly market has been a really great fixture in Slab’s ever busier event calendar, and we are so proud to be a part of what is growing into a really eclectic collection of independent makers of fantastic things. Big up to everyone involved!
All set-up and ready for the punters to roll up.
What a great line-up of stalls showcasing what the island is all about.
This month was the most challenging, as the forecasted good weather ended up bringing heavy winds rather than brilliant sunshine. But that didn’t seem to stop people from turning up and having themselves a great time, even if some of the stalls did have to hold on tight to avoid blowing away!
Anyway, another great event at Brading and we look forward to seeing everyone at next months. And as always, if you couldn’t make it or just simply need to buy more fudge rations, then shop online here – Shop. Free postage on all orders over £10.
We had an absolutely fantastic weekend at Taste of the South in Poole. This was our first foray onto the mainland with Slab, so we had to cram as much fudge as humanly possible into the car, travel over The Solent and see if our fudge cut the mustard over on the big isle? Well, I am pleased to report that it seemed to go down very well and we would love to return to this event again in the future. Here’s to hopefully many more trips spreading some Slab love across the country!

The first event Slab attended this weekend was the second I Love Wight Food Market in Brading, held every last Saturday of the month. Again, we had an amazing day at this exciting new monthly event which really seems to be going from strength to strength. A fabulous new event for the Isle of Wight!
The Garden Party at The Anchor – Cowes 01/05/17
And the second event Slab attended in what was a very busy weekend, at The Anchor in Cowes. An excellent day at The Garden Party to celebrate the official opening of The Mermaid Gin Bar. Slab enjoyed the festivities at what is a local haunt for us, and it was great to be a part of the fun!
If you missed out on the events – you can always buy some Slab Artisan Fudge online here.
Slab attended it’s first event of the season yesterday, the fabulous I Love Wight Market in Brading. We loved meeting all of the other traders and punters alike. And if you missed it yesterday, it is being held on the last Saturday of every month throughout the season. So there are plenty more chances to catch it. A great new event for the island!
