June 12th: '7Days of Chocolate Reviews' - Edition 45


Hi All,

I'm currently revelling in World Cup fever - so please excuse the short nature of this update today!

To bring you all up to speed on things I have recently recieved packages from Heavenly Cakes, Hotel Chocolat, Zotter, Galler and one from Germany which has several of the latest Milka and Lindt flavours. Be sure to watch out for all the reviews coming up on the site - remember I am always open to your requests.

The question(s) of the week: 'which is your favourite world cup themed advert? Are you getting annoyed by them all?'

Personally a lot of them are starting to grate on me, but from a marketing perspective the Carlsberg ad we have here in the UK has been brilliant. It would be interesting to hear from countries other than the UK to see if things have gone quite as mad.

Have great weeks .... COME ON ENGLAND!!!!!!!!!!!!
