Radio Chocolates


On Saturday, July 24, Fr Fintan was interviewed on RTE radio-one by George Lee, on a programme named ‘Mind Your Business’, about Glenstal’s successful brand of dessert and liqueur chocolate truffles. The interview explored the marketing of niche products and, in particular, the mismatch with selling through the major multiples. Fintan explained he was wary of their big, powerful and impersonal character and said he preferred to deal with family-run foodstores, wine shops and gift shops. George sampled some of the chocolates and was very impressed, especially with that flavoured with Glenstal’s Lemon Verbena Liqueur. Try as he did, George could not extract the secret traditional recipe from Fintan. The covers of this medieval file remained firmly shut
