Did you know that today (9 February) is Happy Chocolate Day? Well, I didn’t until I put on my twitter stream this morning! Sadly the effect of everyone tweeting about chocolate is to make me want to EAT chocolate. On top of that, I have another giveaway to set up for you.
This one, from Cadbury’s, includes an iconic box of Milk Tray. I am guessing that some of you may be too young to have seen the Milk Tray adverts. So I’ve been happily browsing through you-tube clips to find you some of my favourites.
Here’s the first milk tray man I remember – apparently filmed in Basingstoke (!)
As years went on, he seemed to get a bit beefier, as did the ad budget and he was allowed to go off and film in rather more exotic locations….
By the time it got to the 1990s he really did look just like James Bond and got a prop list to match the best of the movies
Now, my giveaway includes a rather lovely box of milk tray chocolates in a pretty heartshaped box together with a selection of Cadbury chocolates for Valentines which you can check out here and which contains a whole host of other goodies (Please note, this will be sent directly by Cadbury’s who may substitute the hamper as I’m finishing this giveaway AFTER Valentine’s Day!)
I’d like you to use your imagination…if you were being brought chocolates by the Milk Tray Man, who would it be and why? For the guys…well, if you WERE the Milk Tray man, who would you take your chocolates to…and why?
There’s no right or wrong answer, the winner will be picked by randomiser, but it will keep me entertained reading your suggestions…and who knows, it might just help me stay away from those lovely ads!
