Happy Raksha Bandhan!!!!

Well, today's the day and I'd like to start by wishing all of you who are celebrating a very Happy Raksha Bandhan!! Our Special gift set with Rakhee included was so popular that we sold out just as the delivery deadline hit!!! Apologies to anybody who missed out - make sure to place your orders slightly earlier next time and we'll make sure to have plenty more rakhees ready to go!

As most of you already know, Devnaa was founded by my brother Jay and I and has developed into a family business so Raksha Bandhan is a very important festival for us. I'm going to keep today's entry sweet and simple by wishing Jay and the entire Devnaa family all my best wishes for this special celebration, looking forward to the family dinner later and eating all the yummy sweets we've made!!! Lots of love, luck, laughter and everything that goes with it - Roopa =) xxx

The Bars are Back!!!!

2 new and 2 improved - the Devnaa chocolate bars are back on the website and available to order in three different selections - the Yatra (journey) selection consists of our new White chocolate bar infused with cardamom and saffron and a generous pinch of ground pistachio nuts alongside our milk chocolate bar infused with chai masala and an extra hit of ginger. The Uttam (excellent) selection combines our second milk chocolate bar, infused with orange oil, cinnamon, nutmeg and the crunch of puffed rice with our new dark chocolate bar flavoured with honey and roasted nibbed almonds. The Rajah (king) selection is a complete set of all four bars - fit for a king! We've also introduced a free delivery option to make those purchases even sweeter!!!

The Devnaa Raksha Bandhan 2010 Gift Box is Here!!!

It's arrived! And with just 1 week to go before the festival on August 24th it is just in time for all you sisters to check out and count which of your brothers are special enough to receive it! This year we thought we'd keep it sweet and simple (pun totally intended!) with one of our Signature Small Mixed Tiffin Boxes packaged together with a Luxury Rakhee and of course, you can add a gift card at check out with a personalised message especially for your brother.

We have also now introduced Large tiffin boxes in our chocolate and mixed selections that are the perfect size for a family celebration.

Raksha Bandhan means 'bond of protection' and is celebrated by Sikhs and Hindus. Traditionally sisters tie a decorative thread around the wrists of their brothers, this thread is similar to a protection charm - blessed by the love the sister has for the brother. The brother in turn vows to protect his sister thus creating a bond which is sealed by the two feeding each other sweets.
