CLOSED - A birthday giveaway

Thanks to everyone who entered this giveaway. 
We have a winner - Helen of Clear Your Heart. Huge congrats Helen. x

This post is brought to you in conjunction with Thorntons
In a big happy birthday to me, the wonderful people at Thorntons have offered to giveaway a chocolate hamper worth £25 to one of my lovely readers.

I am however a little bit jealous, having eaten probably twice my body weight in their yummy Continental chocolates over Christmas that this prize won’t be coming to me. Seriously, I’m not even kidding you, between the weekend of my brothers wedding and the first week in January we ate one huge box and two smaller boxes. That’s a LOT of chocolate in 15 short days, but I’ll be totally honest with you, I don’t really regret one single mouthful. I don’t even regret the fights over the Viennese chocs with the boy. What I do regret is believing him when he said we’d eaten them all – I later found out he’d snaffled a few away for eating without me! Grrrrrrrrrr. 

And for all of you on a diet, I have it on good authority 2 chocolates is 3 Weight Watchers points. Now, I have no idea what that means, but it sounds like a pretty good trade off for chocolate!



So, if you’d like to be in with the chance of winning this Thorntons hamper, worth £25, leave a comment telling me what your favourite chocolate is. You can also bag yourself an extra entry by tweeting about the competition, or following me through Google Friend Connect through the Rafflecopter widget below. Simple.

{If you happen to win, and want to send me all the Viennese ones, I won’t complain!}

    1. My fav chocolate bars would be a twix or drifter - a little bit because of the toffee in them!

  16. Awww, so glad you did this, fantastic giveaway! ;) and Happy Birthday to you!

    Okay, this is hard because I love ALL the chocolate (I've even been known to eat Flossie's doggie chocs on occasion but that's a secret) >.<

    One of my favourites "was" Hotel Chocolat Praline puddles, but they stopped doing them last summer. Grrrrr. But, I will say ANYTHING with Praline involved gets my mouth watering! ;D xx

    1. Thankyou.
      And dog chocolate? was it nice? should we all be doing it? maybe its the future?

  17. Wow, wow, wow this is an amazing giveaway!

    My favourite chocolate is so difficult because it changes every week! I sometimes love a good old Tropic bar, or Cadbury wholenut, or dark chocolate bounty or if I'm feeling adventurous Reeses peanut butter cups. The list is pretty much endless!

    Happy birthday!

    xx

    1. Ah, I love the idea of a Reeses cup, but I don't like peanuts and it catches me out every time.

  22. Chocolate riche is the best Thorntons chocolate by far :)

  23. My absolute favourite chocolates are soft-centre salted caramel with a dark chocolate coating. Unfortunately I can't find any in Sheffield so this year's challenge is to learn how to make them myself (and in the meantime, eat plenty of delicious alternatives...) :)

  24. OMG Salted Caramels all the way - seriously, the best chocolates known to man :-) I dunno if you need my email but it's nodiscernibletalent at yahoo dot co dot uk if you do! Thanks
