Brand Spotlight: Charlie & Ivy’s


Charlie & Ivy's delicious condiments add a flavourful flourish to any feast!

If you want to know what Charlie & Ivy’s is all about, a good place to start is their Instagram page. With snaps of sunsets over the Yorkshire fields, delicious farmhouse spreads, and the cute family sheep dog - a quick scroll through their feed catapults you straight into the very wholesome and homey world of this Yorkshire condiment brand.

Condiments can often be the unsung heroes of many meals, but since 2014 Charlie & Ivy’s have been making sure their dips and dressings standout. Their specialties are artisanal bread dippers, mayonnaises, dressings and in the summer, they also launched a small range of very tasty marinades.

After recently featuring one of Charlie and Ivy’s condiment sets in a gift guide, I was inspired to dedicate a whole post to this small, British brand who has been elevating the simplest of meals, with the tastiest of products!

Reasons why we love Charlie & Ivy's

  1. ⭐️

    It’s a family-run business

    This is probably a big part of what makes the brand and products feel so homey and homemade (in the best of ways). Adam and Jennie Palmer are a husband and wife team who named their brand after their two children.

  2. ⭐️

    All the products are made in Yorkshire

    A proud Yorkshire brand through-and-through, every single Charlie & Ivy product comes straight from their family farm on the Yorkshire Wolds.

  3. ⭐️

    Their products are 100% GM free

    No genetic modification takes place in the production of their crops which is good news for the environment and our health.

  4. ⭐️

    They have simple ingredients lists

    If you check what’s inside the products, you’ll find that the ingredients used are pretty great; lots of whole foods and nothing ending in -oxide or -sulfide.

  5. ⭐️

    Those Bread Dippers!

    Their fantastic bread dipping range is a big reason why Charlie & Ivy’s has my backing. We are forever indebted to them for making the experience of eating bread even more tasty!

Our Favourite Charlie & Ivy’s Products

Smokey, peppery and highly dunkable - this is what bread dipping dreams are made of! Adorned with two awards (Deliciously Yorkshire Award Winning and Delicious Awards Shortlisted) it’s easily one of their best products.

Blackberry, Thyme & Balsamic Bread Dipper

Just because they are so good - we had to include another Bread Dipper in our product favourites. This recipe is a new addition to their Bread Dippers and the inclusion of blackberry has us very intrigued.

Honey & Mustard Dressing

The ingredients in this honey & mustard dressing are beautifully simple. No preservatives whatsoever, just whole ingredients and a high quality honey that is sourced in Britain.

Garlic & Thyme Plant Based Mayonnaise

Charlie and Ivy’s recently launched two plant-based mayonnaises, which just a few weeks ago won a Deliciously Yorkshire Taste Award. There are no eggs in this new recipe and this garlic and thyme one sounds great.

Jerk Marinade

I tried this Jerk marinade recently and loved it! It will be perfect to use for BBQ's during the summer months.
