After Eight Goodies Giveaway!



It’s After Eight week here on Cakeyboi and if you saw my recipe for Very Merry Minty Shortbread Squares, you will know that the nice people at After Eight HQ sent me a box of After Eight goodies. This included, a lovely After Eight Apron, a pen emblazoned with the After Eight logo and a box of After Eight Collection Chocolates.



Well, as it’s the season of giving, these items could be yours!

The apron, which has an adjustable necktie and waist ties long enough to be tied around the front is dark green in colour and features the After Eight Logo – I model it for you above…

The pen is a ballpoint and writes in blue ink.



The (142g) After Eight Collection chocolate box has a selection of dark and white mint chocolates.



Oh, and there are also 5 After Eight recipe cards as well!


Entry is via the Rafflecopter thingamajig below. The giveaway is open until midnight on the 24th December and I will endeavour to let the winner know as soon as I can after that. Good luck!
