Why are you called Honey&Date but sell Vegan products?
In the midst of trying to create the perfect raw cake back in 2015, honey and dates were the key ingredients used to replace refined sugar and we found that it enhanced the flavours of all the other natural ingredients as well. So back then, to us, these 2 ingredients were like Yin and Yang, Crouching Tiger and Hidden Dragon, Batman and Robin, well you get the idea.. Fast forward - now armed with perfect raw cakes, the company was launched in 2016 called just that - Honey&Date Ltd. We had a great start and gained awesome customers but after a few months into the business, we received more and more requests from customers asking to have their raw cakes made Vegan-friendly - replacing honey with agave which tastes just as good! It's gotten to a point where the agave version was outselling the honey one, so in 2017, we ditched honey altogether and have become Vegan-friendly ever since.
This obviously is a shortened version of our story and like any other company, we had our challenges in the beginning from finding the right suppliers to getting stocked in major stores. We are still working very hard to improve things that need improving and expand to places that need raw cakes! We are grateful for the support you have shown us so far and hope you keep enjoying our products. We'd like to take this opportunity and say a big THANK YOU!

The raw cakes I received are still frozen. What do I do?
Freezing is part of the raw cake making process, Your order is shipped directly from our kitchen so it is entirely normal if you still find your raw cakes frozen. All you need to do is pop them in the fridge and let it thaw for 30mins or so. The same applies to raw cakes that have gone down to room temperature. Just pop them in the fridge.
