Five weeks today it will be Christmas Eve...and this year we have been sent a Milk Chocolate Advent Calendar which retails for £12. It has book-type folded design and opening the calendar reveals numbered windows behind which there are mini-chocolates to be opened each day during Advent.
Sous Chef J was adamant we were NOT to start the advent calendar yet as "it's not December" but did work out that he could access the chocolates behind the windows "for blog purposes" and here's a pic he took of what he found.
factory shop in Huntingdon near where B works. Naturally, we had to visit and here's Sous Chef J striding purposefully towards the store entrance. Inside, we discovered a vast selection of short dated items and loads of special offers. It's well worth a visit if you live in the area... and is open daily, in case you were wondering.
