December 23rd: JIM's CHRISTMAS BUYER'S GUIDE - PART 3

PANIC PANIC PANIC!!!! "The chocolates I ordered online haven't turned up" ... "I've left my presents at the office" ... "I've forgotten to buy 'so-&-so a present"!!!!

... Lets face it, we have all been in this position before! Lucky for you guys, I have compiled a quick guide for those last minute chocolate buys that you should be able to make even out of your local convenience store. None of these may seem like the perfect gift, but hey desperate times and all ...

-------

WHO: Nestle
WHAT: If you are savvy enough you should be able to find these Smarties Penguin and Milkybar Cow on some sort of 2 for £3.00 deal in your local shop or supermarket. Not everyone will be a fan of Milkybar super sweet white chocolate, but you can't go far wrong with the milk chocolate alternative penguin. I always knew Smarties 'would have the answer':D

WHERE: Nationwide local stores & Supermarkets

-------

WHO: Kraft
WHAT: Lets face it if you led a childhood without getting one of these in your stocking then you really need to be asking your parents some questions :D Terry's Chocolate Orange is one of the more generic offerings, but it provides an easy option last minute present that wont have any noses being turned upwards.WHERE: Nationwide local stores & Supermarkets

-------

WHO: Thorntons
WHAT: If you want to at least attempt to look a little bit fancy then you might want to try your luck sneaking a pack of these Classic Collection Truffles into someones goodie bag. The quality of the chocolates aren't up to particularly much, but the pack does it at least come at an affordable £1.00 and contains 8 pieces. The odds are stacked in your favour they will find something they like.

WHERE: Nationwide local stores & Supermarkets

-------

WHO: Lindt
WHAT: If you really hit it lucky your local store or supermarket might have some Lindt chocolate left in stock. If that is the case you want to look out for the solid milk chocolate santa and the Lindt Milk Chocolate Snowdrops. The latter of the two come highly recommended by myself - 'milk chocolate snowballs with a creamy double milk centre' ... they are pretty delicious trust me!WHERE: Nationwide local stores & Supermarkets

-------

WHO: Marks & Spencer
WHAT: Those of you that are lucky enough to have a local M&S Food shop may want to check out their range of small chocolate gifts this year. From what I have tried their milk chocolate aerated santa wont go upsetting anybody, nor will their giant fondant filled snowballs which will send anyone in to sugary Creme Egg like coma :DWHERE: Nationwide M&S

-------

WHO: Cadbury
WHAT: If all else fails ... Gifting a few Cadbury Wishes is a fail safe option for you. Firstly it is unlikely you will get many complaints about the actual chocolate - its just aerated Cadbury stuff after all! Secondly you can claim they can feel good about some of the proceeds going to the 'Make a Wish Foundation' ... the charity card eh!? :D Haha a bit cheap indeed, but whose to know :D WHERE: Nationwide local stores & Supermarkets

So are any of you last minute panic buying today? Stories and recommendations are very welcome! One last general post tomorrow before I wrap up for the year!!
