July 24th: '7Days of Chocolate Reviews' - Edition 49

### Jim's Corner ###

Hi All,

Just a quick update again this week as I have plenty of reviews to be getting on with. In the last week I have had some deliveries from Ritter Sport, Hotel Chocolat, Thorntons, Cadbury and Galler, so be expecting more from those guys soon.

Thank you again to everyone who entered the Heavenly Cakes competition that ended last week. The winners have been in contact with my about how pleased they were with their prizes. For those of you who didn't win be sure to keep an eye on my Twitter feed as I'm giving away various leftover samples each week (this week it was some Thornton's Pistachio chocolates!!).

Thank you for all the comments that you all continue to leave. I know the likes of Hotel Chocolat, Ritter, Zotter and Galler read them everytime so please keep them coming.

Have a great weekend!
