Competition : Win Chocolates by Genevie *WINNER*

Don't say I never give you stuff.  This is the first of a series of competitions (I always go a bit mad around my birthday and give gifts as well as receive them...) to spoil you lovely readers. Recently, I was sent a box of chocolates from UK based Chocolate by Genevie who sell delicious Belgian chocolates beautifully presented in luxury boxes, hand decorated with silk and butterfly emblems and they taste wonderful.



Genevie Garcia lives in Edinburgh and has just opened her online chocolate shop. All of the chocs are handmade and all of the boxes are hand finished with silk and ribbon - no two boxes of chocolates are exactly the same.  Chocolate making started off initially as a hobby but as more requests for delicious chocolates increased, she opened an online shop.


Her partner Kevin, her Mum and 1 year old son Luke help her with various parts of the production. Mum does the ribbons & boxes, Kevin made the website and little Luke likes to taste the chocolate! It's a very small family venture that keeps them busy.  Her plan is to offer handmade gift chocolates that are yummy and unique - she want to offer something that is markedly different to the other bigger corporate brands that are currently out there.


So, the prize for the lucky winner is a Clear Square 15 Chocolate Box (rrp £13.99). It's a mixed box (no alcohol) of milk, white and dark chocolates in a pretty clear box trimmed with gold cord and a pretty butterfly.  And how do you win???  Follow my website (yes it means signing in...) and leave me a comment about your love of chocolate.  Try to keep it relatively clean, Lulu can read y'know.  And if you want a bonus entry, follow me on Twitter.

Congratulations to Nina who won the chocolates.  Please email me with your address & I'll post them straight out to you!

Only open to Republic of Ireland & UK readers only (I know it's mean but them's the rules)
Competition closes on Wednesday 29th August at 18.00
I'll post the prize immediately (once I get your address, of course)
* Random winner picking works like this.  Every comment is assigned a number in order.   I then ask Lulu to pick a number between the first & last.  They're the winner.  
Lulu's decision is final. No point in arguing with a 7 year old, she's always right...

  1. I love chocolate! Everything from a macaroon bar to my favourite Fassbender &Rausch chocolate ( which is as dreamy as our Mr Fassbender). Milk, dark, white. Give me everything but a Turkish Delight bar- yuck!

  2. Yum yum, chocolate. I am a lover of chocolate, especially dark one. I have a sweet spot for Lindt 70%. I can also snack on Meunier chocolate, which is usually used for baking but absolutely delicious on its won or mixed with some walnuts. I don't like too much things in my dark chocolate though but can definitely do with some nuts, raisins, almond or even caramel, violet or ginger with some very good milk chocolate. These belgian chocolate your are giving away could make my day some day, you know?

  3. I love chocolate almost as much as I love my children... Actually that may be incorrect, chocolate doesn't answer back, so I think I may love chocolate more. But only just :)

  5. I love chocolate. I have a desperate sweet tooth that i know i will regret when i am old and have a mouth full of dentures, but hey ho, i could be gone tomorrow :) When i was a student i didn't spend the little spare cash i had on beer like most people, i spent it on the expensive fancy chocolates in The Book Centre in Waterford a lot of the time. Sad? Or do i just have better taste? :)

  9. Always loved these kind of fancy little chocolates. I remember my local shop having a little box of 4 butlers chocolates years agoand it was mothers day. I went around the house scraping together every copper I could find and eventually had the £2 I needed! The mammy was only delighted with them!

  13. Chocolate is so good for my diet - one square of dark chilli chocolate is just enough to treat myself and I find I don't need to eat all the other snacks I've been thinking about :)
    Not so sure this gorgeous looking box will do the trick but I'm keeping my fingers crossed to win as my birthday's coming up!
