Blogiversary give-away!!

**sticky post until the 10th July - scroll down for more reading!!**

Well, can you believe it!? That time has come around, this week is the first anniversary of my blog! Yes, I wrote/posted my first post on the 10th July 2007, okay - today is clearly not my actual blogiversary day as it is the 3rd July, but I wanted to give you all a week's notice of this auspicious date so that you can all have the chance to win my first solo give-away!

For those of you that took part in One World One Heart - I took part in that too, but that was a collective effort, this is purely a solo give-away that is connected to nothing else but the date of my very first post on my very first blog!

So, what am I giving away? Well, I am seriously addicted to Montezuma's chocolate, a British company that makes extremely good chocolate, in fact, I am so addicted that I don't allow myself to buy any!! Naturally my thoughts turn to Montezuma's when it comes to celebrating and will be buying some for myself and one other lucky person!

All you have to do is have a look at the Montezuma's website and leave me a comment letting me know your favourite flavour and then after the closing date of midnight BST on Thursday 10th July I will select one lucky person to receive an as yet unknown quantity of chocolate from Montezuma's!

By the way - this is open to all bloggers and non-bloggers, just make sure that you leave me some way of getting in touch with you!

Mmmmmm....chocolate.

Dark. Or Happy Hour, because what could be better than combining chocolate & alcohol!?

Thanks for letting us in on the giveaway and Happy upcoming Blogoversary!

Peppermint vanilla or geranium and orange.

Hey Sam - thanks for visiting my blog :)

I checked the Montezuma's site and I'd go for the Organic Very Dark Chocolate. I LURV dark chocolate!

Hope2morrow said...

Ooh, ooh- sounds fun and scrumptious, especially when chocolate is involved!

Geez, it all sounds great. I think anything with the dark chocolate sounds scrumdiddlyumptious- but I think those dark chocolate truffles are calling my name.

How did you find this candy?

Thanks for the fun invitation!

Happy blogiversary!

I'm intrigued by the Vera bar, because I love dark chocolate and I've never tried it with pistachios. The Grand Marnier Apricots also look amazing.

Happy blogiversary!!
What a lovely giveaway, I'm totally addicted to chocolate myself (though I never tried this brand). A friend of mine from the UK once sent me Green&Black's chocolate, and that was absolutely wonderful, so I bet this is just as good if not better!
So had to choose a favorite! Hmmm... I think I'll have to go with something spicey like chili or the one with ginger. I like trying interesting things (and I tried chili chocolate before and it was really good!).

Oh what fun. I'd go for the Chili but I feel a little rude coming here and entering a draw for chocolate when I've never been here before.

thanks for the visit. Very cute cat!!!

Amy said...

Happy Blogoversary! That chocolate looks amazing...I think the chilli one sounds incredibly. Cool contest!

Bunny B said...

Happy Blogiversary!!! Mmmm... I'm hankering for the Secret Squirrel Truffles. Looks good! Thank you for the chance!

A Hi to the Reluctant Blogger - it doesn't matter if this your first visit to my blog - the more the merrier.

So if any of you other folk are feeling a bit reluctant to enter - don't be shy - roll up roll up!!!

If you are looking for my favourite flavour in just the chocolate bars, it would likely be "Connie"--smooth milk chocolated with hazelnuts, but if you were looking for my favourite flavour overall, out of all that they sell, it would likely be "Irish Tipple" truffles, with "Mountie" truffles running a close second. (Seriously...how can you pick just one...it is an impossible task. They all sound so good.)

Chocolate IS my favorite flavor!

Amanda Daybyday said...

Uhm, yum. That looks incredible!

I'm a fan of truffles. I have yet to meet a truffle I didn't like, except perhaps the odd fruit flavored one...so truffles it would be! Milk truffle, dark truffle...just doesn't matter. What a great looking company.

hazel said...

Their Surf Nut flavor sounds like it'd be a hit with me! =D

misty said...

I'm a fan of the Milk truffles. Actually, I am a fan of everything on the website. lol. I LOVE chocolate. Maybe too much. Thanks so much for the opportunity.

RobynLynn said...

Normally I would just pick out a milk chocolate variety, but after looking around their site I couldn't help but be intrigued by the Riotous Assembly: Lively Collection. Spicy chocolate? Who knew? Just sounds like an interesting combo!

Congrats on your blog anniversary! I just started mine a few days ago.

ihchicky said...

The White Chocolate with Cranberry & Almond looks fantastic. I'd love to try it. Thanks for the chance :)

mannequin said...

Oh heavens. I suppose if I may only pick one, it would be the Tiny Tasty Turtles (Milk Chocolate) because I only like tiny bites of chocolate. Many tiny bites of chocolate.
Thanks for the yummy giveaway!

Katie said...

The Dark Side sounds really great. I love milk and dark chocolate so I'd love try something in between! Surf Nut, Spice it Up and Culture Shock all sound amazing too.

noreen said...

Secret Squirrel grabbed me the most but I am drooling now!!

Michelle Pendergrass said...

Mmmmm...the Happy Hour truffle collection. Wow. :)

Heather said...

I just wanted to say Happy Blogiversary! Mine isn't until later in the year, but I am hoping to find something fun while I am at Disneyworld in November to have a prize giveaway too. Hopefully I can hang in there that long. =D

Cory said...

The Blended Coffee Choco:Block sounds wonderful. Thank you for celebrating your blogiversary with us. Take care and God bless, Cory

Terri said...

Yummo! I would love the champagne chocolates.

susan said...

Happy Almost Blogiversary!!!

What a great way to celebrate.

Maura said...

So glad I found you from AllMediocre - what a great idea! I'm totally intrigued by the range of chocolate this company has.

I think the chocolate piranha is gorgeous, but my favorite-sounding flavor is the mandarin orange.

Thanks!

anymommy said...

Happy Blogiversary!! One year - that's impressive. I'm a bit late on this one, but I'll say dark, dark, darker the better for my chocolate.

You know what British chocolate I really crave though? Aero bars. My family lived in England for a while and I loved those. Occasionally, we get up to Canada and I'm able to grab one! I know, that's probably like telling an American your favorite chocolate is Hershey.

And there, now look at that, I left an incredibly long comment on your blog too ;-)

happy blogiversary!
I'd love to try the dark chocolate truffles, yum :)

Wishing 4 One said...

Happy, Happy blogoversary Sam! OMG How cool is this???? I LOVE chocolate but GOOD chocolate and I know you wouldn't eat anything but the bestest right?

There are sooo many to choose from, but if I had to pick one I just couldn't! But I could narrow three that I would die to try, they are: nutmeg , three pepper and their chocolate dipped ginger.

My friend lives in Brighton, I just may have her bring some of these exquisite souding chocolated when she visits Cairo again.

Good luck to us all and Sam youre awesome for doing this, even if we don;t win, at least you introduced to a GREAT place to get chocolates yeah!

alicia said...

ohhh prizes!!! yum! my fav is milk choclate anything! cool that it is organic choclate, i am all earth lovey so i like that!

thanks for voting on my shoe contest, your prize kicks butt compared to mine ha ha!

Momma Mary said...

Ooh, I'm a fan of Dark chocolate. But any chocolate is good!!

You visited my page a couple of weeks ago, and I've been too rude to stop by and say thank you until now. :)

As for traveling -- we traveled quite the distance, so we brought a camper trailer with us to haul all of our stuff. ;)

SA said...

WHO DOESN'T LOVE CHOCOLATE!!

Katie said...

That looks like good chocolate! I think either Spice it Up as I'm a ginger and dark chocolate addict or Orangutan...
Happy Blogoversary!
