My First: White Chocolate Lion Bar!

Last year my friend Kym (yes this one is all your fault!lol) told me about white chocolate lion bars, I'd never heard of them before but was instantly curious. I used to love normal lion bars but for the past few years Nestle milk chocolate has given me terrible heartburn so I have avoided it. Their white chocolate however has not presented me with any problems which made me even more keen to try these out. After hunting for them I managed to find someone selling them on Amazon and added them to my Christmas wish list for Dave to select my gifts from. Luckily for me he chose to buy them but sadly they didn't get delivered in time, in fact they were only finally delivered to us this week!


Because of my health this week I've only tried a small piece of one, Dave has done some more rigorous testing though and given them a thorough thumbs up!lol

The piece I did try was really good, very very sweet however so don't try these unless you have a real sweet tooth, they will be too much for you! They start off being sweet and crispy and after a little chew they go creamy and soft, possibly a little too sweet for me but I'm sure I wont mind having a couple every so often while the ones I have last!

Be careful what you ask for ...... around me!

Me: Do you want a mince pie?
Dave: Please
Me: hot?
Dave: Yes
Me: Cream?
Dave: Yep
Me: Do you want me to do it?
Dave: If you don't mind
Me: A little or a lot?
Dave: ...... A lot!

1st First on the 1st!


Well, I've already done something that I've never done before, I've set myself a list of things I'd like to win and written them down here!

Each year there seems to be one challenge or another and I join in to some which appeal to me, fun ones I remember were winning the Alphabet and win a prize a day, both were quite difficult to complete and so last year I set an easy one (to win less tat) and I succeeded with that too!


I've never really gone for the win a wishlist ones before though as I really don't want to appear to be greedy especially with the things I've won over the years I've been comping already so I took some time and really thought about what I would like to win. Yes, some things are for other people but I always try to help my friends and our family out with the things I win anyway. And Yes, I have been deliberately vague with them as well, mostly this is because I've won so much recently, I'm not really sure what I want exactly right now.

 

I did have an all time wishlist but the last 2 years have wiped that out (well, except for the lawn mower but that's not for this house anyway) with winning a BBQ, Xbox, iPad and just last month a 3D TV but I'd just had that list in my head and heart. So now I've let my wishlist out into the world, I wonder what will come from it, I'll certainly be letting everyone know what does/doesn't :-D

A year of Firsts!

I've decided to set myself a fun challenge this year, something that will stretch me a bit and I'm not sure I'll be able to complete but it should be fun and I really hope I'll keep it going this time! :-)

I've decided to try something new every week this year, from a new recipe or food to new genre's in music/film and books right through to getting my first passport, going on my first foreign holiday and (hopefully) us buying our first house together! So there's some small, some huge and I'm sure I'll think up some middling ones too through the year and if any of you have any idea's for new things to try (please bear in mind I'm not very fit & have agoraphobia when you make suggestions!lol) I'd love to hear from you :-D

So now to think up something new to try this week ...... I'll get back to you soon &
