Win a Continental Chocolatiers Tasting Collection Heart [CLOSED]
I got sent this heart of 625g of Thorntons Valentine’s chocolates specifically to give away and so I shall. But here was the problem – how do I give it away in a fair way without automated entries getting in the way of genuine people who genuinely read the blog and the Facebook page getting a fair chance so here is what I’ll do:
Post a poem in the comments to enter. It has to be a unique poem and as such I will not approve any comments until the competition is over. I will accept any form of poetry but I will be judging on originality so I will be checking to see if it is original. It should be about love since these are Valentine’s Day chocolates.
What about the chocolates? Well, the Thorntons site says: “Say ‘I love you’ with this beautiful chocolate gift. Hand-selected by our Master Chocolatier, this pretty chocolate gift box features only the finest luxury chocolates from our favourite Continental, Milan and Paris chocolate ranges. This stunning gift box is filled with 50 of the most popular Thorntons Continental chocolates, including scrumptious pralines, yummy chocolate truffles and delicious mousses covered in milk, white and dark chocolate.” YUM.
But since it is Valentine’s Day I will also give away some lovely Green & Blacks bars as a second prize!
