April 3rd: '7Days of Chocolate Reviews' - Edition 38

Hi All,

The logo above is a blast from the past isn't it :D I hope you are all having a fantastic weekend. If you would like to get familiar with some of the products you may be receiving this weekend I suggest you check out my reviews of popular Easter products ...

Easter 2008 Reviews ... HERE
Easter 2009 Reviews ... HERE
Easter 2010 Reviews ... HERE

Have I really been doing this three years now!? I need a new hobby huh :D

Question of the week of course has to be ... 'What have you been giving or receiving this Easter?' ... be sure to drop me a note with what you get/give.

There are a great few weeks coming up on the site ... more Ritter Sport, Galler, Hotel Chocolat, Cadbury and Galaxy products all coming in the next few days.

Thanks for all your continued support and comments. Have a great Easter holiday.
