Day three of the Blog Hub Swap at chez moi. Before I show you what I pulled out of the Royal Mail pouch today, I initially promised everyone a better photo of my most awesome orange yarn from Day 1. Good as my word, here it is:
Fabulously orange, yes?
Now, onto today's swappy gem. It's Sunday, so I was particularly pleased to pull what you see to the right out of the hat.
Now, any chocolate is great in my book. And, since these are all produced in the U.K. (and I'm wondering if any are produced near Tanya's home), they could technically qualify as a "local" gift (one of the required gifts in our swap package directions). I especially loved the Ferrero-Rocher and the caramel-filled chocolate, although the Ferrero-Rocher is easily purchased on this side of the pond.
As good as this chocolate was (yes, you know it's long gone now, folks!), I've also received some great chocolate in other swap packages. Most recently I received this bar of chocolate awesomeness from Germany:
It was not too sweet, had little bits of nut and fruit in it, and was just a delight to eat and oogle over the packaging. I've also received memorable Belgian chocolate that contained chili pepper. Go figure.
From where have you received great chocolate? Definitely let me know, as I'm always on the great chocolate lookout.
Tomorrow is day 4: the happy hump day of swapping gifts. I'm certain I can't wait for another dip into the shiny packages in the Royal Mail pouch.
