Hello all
Well nearly free choccies.
If you buy a copy of Womans Weekly magazine (21st June) ?85p there is a voucher for a 2.99 pack of chocs for free. Offer is on until the end of June

Oh no! shock
Step away from the Thorntons Gransnet dieters!!!!!

Fancy telling me that now when there are two Thorntons shops near
me and I am on a mission to lose 10lbs before end August,I have the
mag I get it delivered so will have to give DD the chocs to test.

Same offer in Daily Mail to-day 22/6 so I could get two packets free
if I was that way inclined (who am I trying to kid,I'm very much inclined)

Oh glammanana I feel exactly the same way! I'm also much more inclined than I ought to be and all this talk of chocolate is making me hungry...

Am I going to be able to walk past Thornton's tomorrow when I go to
town ? I think not,maybe I will pop in and tell myself the freebies are for
a friend ? maybe I will take them with me to the Garden Shed for la-la
time ?

Too late !!! They only have the 28th June Womans Weekly in Tesco's, and today's Daily Mail..

I bought a camera, fro which there had been a £100 off token in a Sunday paper. The shop had had the foresight to buy a copy for every camera they had in stock.

I missed out on the mistake Tesco's made on their 2 pack of beers
yesterday,they where selling them at £4.00 for 2x12 pcks,instead of
£16.00,someone had programmed in the price at £4.00 total cost
instead of £4.00 discount,and guess who decided to go to Morrisson's
instead ? but I bet someone's head will roll to-day in their IT dept.

I know it's wicked of me to suggest it, but if you're a chocolate connoisseur rather than a chocoholic, try Hotel Chocolat and The Chocolate Tasting Club. Thorntons taste like sugary cardboard after that.

glammanana Thu 23-Jun-11 14:37:34

It's not wicked at all baggy,the only reason looking at Thorntons was because they where FREE and we would have got two bags FREE,I
never get anything for nothing or I always miss out on offers,but you are so right about The Chocolate Tasting Co. they are fabulous,I joined
last year and have a box sent every 3mths,the most fabulous chocs
I had for a long time

baggythecrust! Thu 23-Jun-11 16:19:46

Yes, I guess free chocs do taste good, glamma! one of my nieces (19) recently got an extra chocolate bar out of a machine when she'd only paid for one. She was over the moon: "Best day ever!"

baggythecrust! Thu 23-Jun-11 16:21:02

PS I've even eaten cooking chocolate with relish at certain desperate hormonal times and so have my daughters!

glammanana Sat 25-Jun-11 14:20:46

Oh I've just remembered that there is a bar of dark chocolate I bought
to cover a cake I was going to make for a party that was cancelled,it's
hiding in the cupboard behind the glace cherries and honey,me thinks I will have to test it and make sure it's ok for human consumption ? I'm
hoping glassortwo does'nt spot this as I post my weight loss on Monday.

Baggy, yes have quite gone off Thorntons, far too sweet and also seems a bit common to me now that you can buy it everywhere.wink However, in moments of 'need' have attacked the jar of Nutella I keep at back of cupboard for GS, infact have had to 'replace' the last jar!
