Shoppers at Morpeth’s Sanderson Arcade were in for a treat yesterday when a family-run dessert business had its official opening.

The Pudding Parlour, which produces tasty products with an American twist such as Cookie Dough Pie and Caramel Snickerdoodles, has moved into a unit in the piazza area.

The duo running the business, brother and sister Kristy Giblin and Greg Small, were joined at the opening by Morpeth Gadgy Alex Swailes and Morpeth Mayor Nic Best.

Members of the public were able to sample some of the desserts during the event. There will be some more samples available this Saturday, when stilt-walkers will also be visiting the centre.

Kristy said: “We’ve had a fantastic response to our new store here in Morpeth – we’ve had some lovely comments from shoppers about the shop and our puddings.

“Puddings are a real passion for us and we’re always working hard to come up with different ideas and recipes.”

As well as a store and bakery in Hexham, the company has a concession at Fenwick’s in Newcastle and Gosforth Garden Centre. It also supplies a number of pubs and restaurants across the region.
