Take your taste buds down Memory Lane
Have I got a treat for you! I'm delighted that Bah Humbugs are offering you the chance to win some of their retro-tastic sweets.
The Yorkshire-based and online retro sweet shop sells the most amazing range of sweets from my childhood.
Who remembers Sherbet Dib Dabs; Wham bars, the cheap thrills of Fizz Wizz popping candy and the girly giggles at the mottos on Love Hearts?
Bah Humbugs stock a huge range of traditional sweets of the type you used to be able to buy by the quarter in a little paper bag. Their Lemon Sherbets are as cheek-suckingly good as I ever remember, their Liquorice Torpedos with crispy crunchy shells and rich dark liquorice inside and my favourites Rhubarb & Custard all bring the memories flooding back.
If you're looking for a Father's Day gift, then how about a Retro Sweet Hamper? Packed full of favourites this is bound to be a huge hit. Bah Humbugs have kindly offered one as a prize, so read on to find out how to win one.
And because they are generous souls, there is a second prize too of a Mega Retro Party Bag. But that's not all. If you can't wait to get your gnashers round some old fashioned sweets, or fancy buying a hamper for a gift, Bah Humbugs is offering readers a 10% discount off all orders over £10. Just use the exclusive code BH01 at checkout before the end of June 2011.
So, how to get your mitts on the hamper? Simple. I'd like you to visit the Bah Humbugs site and come back here to tell my your all time favourite sweet. Leave me a comment with a way to contact you (such as your twitter ID or an email). I'm aware that Blogger is playing up and some people are having difficulties leaving blog comments, so if you're struggling try using the anonymous option, but leaving your name/contact in the comment. Alternatively, you can tweet me @missielizzieb with your answer and I can add it for you.
You can gain extra entries by leaving an additional comment telling me you have done one or more of the following:
1. Follow @Bahhumbugs on Twitter
2. Like their Facebook page.
3. Tweet "I'm entering @missielizzieb 's blog competition to win a @bahhumbugs retro sweet hamper. You can too here http://bit.ly/l0yHaL "
The competition closes at 7pm on Sunday 12th June 2011. The winner and runner up will be picked at random. Whilst I will make every effort to contact winners, if I do not hear back within 3 days I reserve the right to re-draw.
