12 chocolate bars of Christmas giveaway (c/d 13 December 2015)

It's that time of the year, when I offer a seasonal giveaway. As a self-confessed chocoholic, I decided this year to offer you Twelve chocolate bars of Christmas.
Every day I will offer you a new chocolate bar and a little something too, edible or decorative.
For 12 days I will be revealing a part of an overall prize, and each day there will be a new question.
As stipulated in the T&Cs below, the number of winners will depend on how many questions the first randomly selected winner will answer. If they answered all 12 questions, they get the whole lot. If they choose to answer less questions, they'll get less prizes, and the remaining part of the prize will go to the next randomly selected winner.

Day 1:
I was thrilled to discover that M&S now sells Novi chocolate. I often buy it when we visit my in-laws in Italy. Nocciolato al latte is an excellent extra fine milk chocolate with whole hazelnuts. It's a real treat, and if you haven't tried it yet, now is your chance to do so.
And Elsa from Frozen is another M&S find. If I were a child, I'd totally fall in love with this Christmas tree decoration.



To be in with a chance of winning, please answer the following question(s)
Question 1 (01.12.15): What's your best Christmas memory?


Day 2: 
From the Italian chocolate we now move to the British one. Today's prize includes an M&S Jersey milk chocolate bar as well as Twinings The Full English Breakfast Blend. Tea and chocolate, two of life's simple pleasures.


Question 2 (2.12.15): Christmas jumpers - yay or nay? Will you be buying one for yourself or your family?

Day 3:
The chocolate bar of the day is Willie's Cacao Luscious Orange. It's a delicate orange flavoured chocolate with honey notes. And a little something this time is a paperback A Gingerbread Cafe for Christmas by Rebecca Raisin. I haven't read this book, but it looks like a cozy romantic chick lit story.


Question 3 (03.12.15): What gift do you most anticipate to give for Christmas and who's your lucky recipient?

Day 4:
Cadbury Dairy Milk Winter Edition and two wooden tags from Gisela Graham limited join in the rest of the prize haul today.


Question 4 (04.12.15): If you could choose any destination in the world to spend Christmas in, what would it be, or would you still prefer to spend it at home?

Day 5:
Apologies for the later start. I had a manic week, and needed a bit of lie-in this morning. Today's addition to the prize is Thorntons Fabulous Fudge Milk Chocolate and two mini jars of Rowse honey - English Wildflower and Greek.


Christmas is a time to indulge for many people. I'm partial to a slice or two of panettone, and of course, all the cheese with nuts and dried fruit, and if I am offered a glass of port or sherry, who am I to say No?!

Day 5 question (05.12.15): What is your favourite seasonal treat?

Day 6:
Oi, we are already half-way through. Today's treats are a Special Toffee milk chocolate from Thorntons and a mini-bottle of  Baileys. Treat yourself and add it to your cup of coffee, or use in baking, for example, you might be tempted to make this scrummy Baileys cheesecake found on Madhouse and Family Reviews blog.


Day 6 question (06.12.15): What's your favourite Christmas song?
(I confess I am quite fond of the cheesy Last Christmas, it takes me back to my high school and University days).

Day 7:
Today's part of the prize is rather girlie - there is an M&S Rose & Violet Dark chocolate and a no.7 nail polish in a festive red shade.


Day 7 question (07.12.15): What is your ideal Christmas breakfast?

Day 8:
Montezuma's Dark Chocolate with lime and sea salt and Waitrose Cooks' Cinnamon sticks are added to the growing bundle of goodies.


Question 8 (08.12.15) : What is your favourite Christmas film/animation?

Day 9: 
Today's chocolate bar is one of my favourites - Lindt Excellence Coconut Intense Dark and a small bottle of Stardust. Well, don't we all need a bit of stardust in our life?


Question 9 (09.12.15): Will you be attending a pantomime this year (if yes, which one do you plan to watch)?

Day 10: 
For a festive touch how about a Marzipan Ritter Sport? And a Peace Christmas tree decoration?


Question 10 (10.12.15) : What do you most anticipate watching at Christmas? (Sherlock Holmes, Downton Abbey, Call the Midwife, Strictly or anything else)

Day 11:
My bad, with no hot water running, dealing with the plumber and going out for dinner I have completely forgot to add the photo and the question. Apologies. In fact I was wondering why there were no comments for day 11, as I was convinced I have added it in the morning as usual.
So, for day 11 you will get a Magnum Signature milk chocolate and a little matchbox puzzle.


Question for day 11 (11.12.15): Do you play board games at Christmas with your family, and which one is your favourite?

Day 12:
The last chocolate bar is Thorntons Mint Crunch. I have also added a little stocking-shaped baking mould.


Question for Day 12 (12.12.15):
From all the chocolate bars in this giveaway which one would you like to try first?

I hope you enjoyed taking part in my chocolate giveaway. I definitely enjoyed reading all your answers.
You have until tomorrow midnight to catch up with all the questions if you've missed any for a chance to win the whole lot. But if you missed a day or two or three and don't have time to answer all the questions, no worries, you are still in the draw, and might win a prize for the days you have taken part.
Good luck!

T&Cs:
The giveaway is open to the UK residents only.
There will be one or more winners, who will receive all the goodies appearing during the twelve days of the giveaway. If the first winner has replied to all twelve questions, they will receive the whole lot.
If the first winner answered less questions, they will receive the prizes from those days only.
The remaining prizes will be allocated to the next winner(s).
I hope I don't have to send twelve different packages though.

The more questions you answer, the bigger your prize will be.
Only one entry per person is allowed.

If you missed a day, you will have a chance to catch up on any other day until the end of the giveaway, as long as it comes in a SEPARATE comment.

Please note, if you answer 12 questions in one comment, it will count as 1 entry.

Once the winner is selected randomly, I will count their replies.
I will contact the winner, who will have 7 days to reply with their address details. Due to the nature of the prize which I hope to dispatch in good time before Christmas, the time limit to get back to me is shorter than usual.
All the prizes are provided by me.
I will be posting the package(s) at my own cost.
If the winner's away when the parcel arrives and is not able to rearrange the redelivery, and if by some chance it is returned to me, please do not expect me to cover the cost of the postage again. If that happens, the prize will be taken to the local food bank (foods) and charity shops (non-perishables).

And that's all, folks.
Good luck!


Now the moment of truth... After writing down all the names on slips of paper, I have asked my 5-year-old to pick up one of the pieces out of the hat. And the name he has picked out of the hat is

... Hannah I.
Please give Hannah a big round of applause...
Hannah, I have found you on Facebook and sent you a message. Hope you'll enjoy all that chocolate.

Merry Christmas, folks!

  1. Happy December! My favourite Christmas memory is from my childhood. My brother and I had woollen knitted stockings to put on the fire place on Christmas Eve. One Christmas Eve, my mum and grandma were hunting all over the house trying to find the Christmas stockings, thinking that they were missing. They then found my brother and I, hidden behind the sofa, trying on the Christmas stockings to see if we could wear them! Must have been a funny sight!

  2. Question 1 - my best Christmas memory is racing downstairs to look under the tree and see if Father Christmas had been ... there was always that very slight moment of doubt that maybe he'd have accidentally forgotten our house this year !

We did get every single present and line it up in two lines in the order we wanted to open them in though lol :)

    ReplyDelete
  12. I remember receiving an orange shirt with a white collar from my Grandma. It was hideous, but I loved it until I got the mickey taken out of my at school

    ReplyDelete
  13. Question 1 - My best Christmas memory was waking up and feeling the weight of my Christmas stocking on my feet, there was something so magical about opening your stocking even though it never had anything major in it, just knowing Santa had been and left it was exciting enough

  19. When I was a child, 50+ years ago, my father was extremely strict, and enforced a rule that my sister & I were only allowed to keep one Christmas present each. The others had to be boxed up & sent to the local hospital "for the poor sick children". One Boxing Day, after we had given away most of our gifts, and my sister & I were playing with our one remaining toy each, some old friends of my father's showed up unexpectedly. To our surprise they gave my sister & I a gift each. It was great as we knew that we would be allowed to keep the toys as my father would not be able to lie to these friends if they asked him in the future how we liked our toys. My toy was a fuzzy felt scene, which seemed to me to be the best present ever because it broke the 1 gift rule.

  20. Yay to Christmas jumpers! Love them, may not buy them for myself but happily for others and I wouldn't mind receiving a christmas jumper either! :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Day 2: Yay to Christmas jumpers! I have one but I need to get some for my husband & kids.

    ReplyDelete
  22. We love Christmas jumpers. We have a tradition that we all make our own jumpers, and then a secret ballot is held for the best jumper which wins a special gift. Lots of creativity is involved, one year my son wore a green sweatshirt and jogging pants and decorated himself with tinsel with a star on his head, so it was a full Christmas outfit rather than just a jumper. This year we will have to make an exception and allow purchased sweaters, because our baby granddaughter cannot be expected to make her own outfit, and her parents (my daughter & son-in-law) are far too busy to be making jumpers.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Christmas Jumper - YAY! I made myself one, it's a sweatshirt with felt Christmas decorations and lights........BLING BLING BLING!!! the rest of my family have shop bought ones

I have been crocheting a blanket since November, in between making a patchwork quilt for her (a toddler bed size one rather than crib sized, so it gets more use). If I finish those in time I want to make her a crocheted dress and bolero.

  60. Day 4 - Would be nice to spend Christmas in Mauritius with the family

    ReplyDelete
  61. Day 4 - I love Christmas in the UK but would love a cosy lodge with all the family to make it extra special!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Question 4. I have sent Christmas in places as diverse as Switzerland, Gabon (in equatorial Africa) and Abu Dhabi, so the actual location does not really matter, so long as I am with my family. It is nice to be somewhere with Christmas lights, markets, special programmes on TV and so forth. However, my husband, kids & I also lived in the US for 10 years, where the run-up to Christmas is so over the top, with non-stop ads and Christmas music blaring everywhere, that it was actually nice to move to Abu Dhabi where Christmas was a very low key affair mainly enjoyed at home with family and other expat friends. I also don't need or want snow - I've shovelled enough snowy driveways in the US & Switzerland - and so I prefer snow to stay on the mountains and away from where I live.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Day 4 - I would love to spend Christmas in Iceland. Seeing the northern lights during Christmas would be great.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Playing catchup - Day 2 - Christmas jumpers - YAY ... but the cute ones, not the hideous ones ! lol

    ReplyDelete
  71. Day 1 - Best Christmas memory spans across pretty much all of my childhood memories and it is a simple one. Just waiting at the living room window and watching out for my nan and grandad to come down the road. Might not seem like much but it was amazing for me!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Day 2 - I love Christmas Jumpers! I have loads, I really need to stop buying them. Cosy ones, boring ones and funny ones, room for them all in my house!

    ReplyDelete

  87. Day 1 - My dad never really liked christmas but always tried to make the effort as he brought me and my sister up alone. We weren't allowed to open our presents until after dinner but i loved peaking into the sitting room to see the bags full of pressies from Santa. One year not only did Santa leave us loads of exciting presents in the sitting room, i found a cadburys buttons moneybox full of buttons. I know it was only small but it was so exciting to think Santa had been leaving a trail of presents through the house.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Day 2 - Up until i had kids i wouldn't have been that bothered about christmas jumpers but since our babies were born i'd happily have us dressed up in matching jumpers like Howard and Hilda from 'Ever decreasing circles'!!!

    ReplyDelete
  89. Day 3 - My husband loves taking photos and already has two lovely mid-range cameras but i know he's been coveting a fujifilm XT-1 camera for a while. Luckily Jessops do 12 months interest free credit so i'm getting him that. He's so hard to buy for and some years i buy him very little (which he doesn't mind about at all) so i'm really excited to see his reaction this year.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Day 4 - I'd love to spend one Christmas in New York. To see the tree at Rockerfellar Centre, to ice skate, so to FAO Schwartz and wrap up warm to walk through central park would be incredible. We got married in NYC so i'd love to bring the babies back with us to see the sights and i know anywhere we'd stay would put on a fabulous spread.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Day 5 - Ok, please don't judge me, but i love having a glass of Poinsettia cocktail and quality street on christmas morning with The Muppets Christmas Carol on the TV. It's so ridiculously indulgent but quite a lot of fun!!!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  129. Day 7 - probably Eggs Benedict, nice and simple for Christmas morning!

    ReplyDelete
  130. Day 7 - I know this is ridiculously self indulgent but some smoked salmon and cream cheese bagels followed by some quality street, all washed down with a big glass of poinsettia cocktail. Yum!

    ReplyDelete
  147. Day 9 - no panto this year, none of us really like them tbh!

    ReplyDelete
  148. Day 8 - I love watching The Muppets Christmas Carol every Christmas, preferably on Christmas morning. This will be the first Christmas in 10 years that i haven't worked on Christmas day so i'm even more excited than usual!!

    ReplyDelete
  149. Day 9 - Because the babies are so young we are not attempting a panto. No doubt when they're older we'll head to the annual one in Belfast. WE are going to see my little boy sing with his class next week so that'll be better than any slick production.

    ReplyDelete

  159. Day 10 - I don;t particularly like Doctor Who, but it does sometimes have a decent Christmas special, so I usually give it a go.

    ReplyDelete
