Harry's Chocolate Freckles Review + GIVEAWAY

Put your hand up if you love chocolate!  Put your hand up if your love handmade!  Well, as you probably know I am passionate about both, so was pretty happy a couple of weeks ago when I was given the opportunity to review a brand new product from Harry's Rocky Road - Harry's Handmade Chocolate Freckles.

I had my blog review all planned out, I was going to do a lovely post with photos and feedback comments from my sons.  But guess what.  I opened the packet when they were at kindy.  I couldn't help myself.  I ate all of them.  What a piggy.

So, all I can really say in this review is that actions speak louder than words.  These were so delicious I just couldn't stop myself eating the whole packet.  But upon reading the product information, the chocolate freckles are hand poured discs of Callebaut Couverture chocolate, which are sprinkled with naturally coloured hundreds and thousands.  Now, does that sound like something you would waste on a child?  No I say, keep these for yourself as a truly delicious adult treat!!!

They come in 6 different varieties - milk or white chocolate, sprinkled with multi-coloured, blue or pink hundreds and thousands.  Wouldn't the pink or blue varieties be perfect for a baby shower??



Now we come to the fabulous part for you - Harry's Rocky Road is going to send one lucky reader of this blog TWO packets of his new Chocolate Freckles!!

after all the uproar about possible side effects of colouring my kids don't get many treats, because either its bad for them or its ethically bad from my pov, so this is fantastic and I'd love to try the kids on them and maybe have something as a treat that is pretty much guilt and worry free!

Oh dear.... Now I know I can have choc freckles on their way to my house with just a few clicks on the key board I'll be constantly ordering them!!! YUM!! I love to enjoy every single freckle in a packet individually.... Just let them melt little bit at a time then start fresh with a new one (until the packet is empty)

How can I not enter Monique.. Seriously!! The difference between you and me is that I would eat them straightway in front of my children too if they happened to be awake/at home and leave them crying, screaming snotty nose asking WHY MUMMY!?!? I have done it before... I have no control... Ask Carlos lmao...

Yes I would love to try these chocolate freckles! Hopefully they are gluten free, if not then they will go to my lucky boys. Other freckles are gluten free so I am hoping these ones are as yummy treats like these are hard to come by for a coeliac!

Harry's rocky road is definitely delectable. I'd give anything in the world to bring back kiddy memories like hundreds & thousands and chocolate! I haven't had anything sweet in ages being a diabetic, but I will definitely sacrifice this!

Growing up with fair skin, freckles were my enemy. Now I'm grown and they've faded, freckles are just my colourful addiction :) Yum!

Lesley said...

Freckles, who wouldn't kill for freckles. Does it count that I probably have as many as a chocolate freckle does?

I am currently 2-3 weeks away from having our third baby, so after 9 months of not being able to each much (morning sickness) I can't wait to eat a good dose of chocolate. These look perfect to take to hospital to celebrate our new arrival.
