any news on chocolate forum, I know you took ages to get the numbers .when is it starting

shoofly Fri 25-Oct-13 17:02:17

I've been doing the surveys and I think it's over. Am fairly sure last survey, it said it was the last one

ShatnersEmptyCatacomb Fri 25-Oct-13 17:06:02

Yes, I think it's all done and dusted now. You didn't miss much op, it was nowhere near as exciting as it sounded!

billybear Sun 27-Oct-13 17:39:32

can not believe cho forum is over took ages to get the numbers I was one of first to sign up, thought it was running for a few months very disappointed

TEErickOrTEEreat Sun 27-Oct-13 17:40:59

I am not sure it's completely over but yes, it's been running for a few months already.

Hi all, just to clarify, the Chocolate Forum is still running and will be until September 2014. There will be breaks in between each task so we don't overload you all with endless chocolate related questions and activities grin

thanks

Still no actual chocolate tho... ;)

janajos Thu 31-Oct-13 11:29:44

Just one point, why do we have to keep giving the same general information? Would be much less repetitive if I didn't have to keep saying how old I am, how many DC I have etc.....

Chocolate forum???!!!

HOW HAVE I MISSED THIS??!! <wails>

Squiffie Wed 06-Nov-13 17:12:37

I signed up but obviously didn't get picked sad

Eastpoint Thu 28-Nov-13 10:38:57

Katiebmumsnethq received my thank you goodies today, walnut whips, mini gingerbread men, marzipan, dark chocolate & fudge bars with a thank you card. I enjoyed doing the research, thanks.

AmberLeaf Thu 28-Nov-13 10:40:20

Oh I didn't get picked either then sad

noscat Thu 28-Nov-13 12:09:29

I got my thank you goodies yesterday - yum yum! Lots of dark chocolate which is my favourite so much appreciated smile

Coppernob Thu 28-Nov-13 12:12:11

Thanks for the goody bag. Not sure if everything was in it as the bag had come open in the post. No dark chocolate or fudge bars in mine.

bruffin Thu 28-Nov-13 12:21:38

Thanks got my goody bag on monday. I got the same as Eastpoint and it is very much appreciated.

KatieBMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 28-Nov-13 15:30:30

Coppernob please can you email me with what was in your welcome pack and I'll look into for you. thanks

Did anyone get a weird blank envelope with three random squares of wrapped chocolate in it?

Eastpoint Thu 28-Nov-13 17:15:40

Yes, I had 3 squares but there was also a card in the envelope saying thank you & with the chocolate tasting survey logo in the corner. They looked like misshapes.

Aww this was nice to receive in the post. I normally only get bills.

Thanks for the treats! (Although DP has been snaffling them!)

billybear Thu 28-Nov-13 18:03:58

my husband being doing choc forum surveys never had any choc,untill today got a padded envelope
with m ans s goodies init gingerbread men, walnut whips, etc, same as other peoples list, and an empty brown envelope,with no note or anything, thought the choc forum was for kinerton choc,he never had any off them , so if this m and s goodies is thank you what happened to his kinerton choc or are we losing the plot.

Kinnerton does the chocolate for m&s

WildThong Thu 28-Nov-13 18:32:05

Thank you for my goodie bag,

Num num num. grin

ouryve Thu 28-Nov-13 18:34:40

Poor DH. I had to save him from the nasty, nasty chocolate covered marzipan. I'm such a caring wife.

DazR Thu 28-Nov-13 20:24:44

Hi I had a goody bag today - unsealed and held closed by an elastic band. Had empty brown envelope inside and no card or any details of where it came from! I guessed it was from the choc forum and there are gingerbread men, walnut whips and choc bars - a lovely treat x

nearlyreadytopop Thu 28-Nov-13 22:15:57

Thank you for my goody bag. I love getting nice surprises in the post.grin

gazzalw Sat 30-Nov-13 17:21:12

Thank you for the goodies! :-)!

Ooh I forgot to say thank you smile DH is thankful for the dark chocolate and marzipan chocolate as I hate them. The dds are thankful for the gingerbread men and I was extremely thankful as I scoffed 3 walnut whips last night grin

Forgot to add, I didn't know that Kinnerton made M&S chocolate till this. \i usually avoid Kinnerton stuff and specifically buy M&S advent calendars etc. How much of a plank do I feel now. blush

gazzalw Sun 01-Dec-13 13:47:25

I think the gingerbread men might get donated to DD's upcoming Christmas Fair as none of us is keen....

The rest of the chocolate 'gifties' have gone down a treat though!

gretalife Sun 01-Dec-13 15:30:54

Have received my chocolate but there are no instructions. I am happy to eat it but wondering if I need to do something else e.g. review?

basijas46 Sun 01-Dec-13 16:27:09

Only reading this thread have I realised my postie must have had treats in his bag, as the envelope I had was open,. and only contained a bar of marzipan and three chocolate shapes with a thank you card! Wish I'd have known there should have been more!

Eastpoint Sun 01-Dec-13 18:39:51

ouryve I wish you'd saved our marzipan too. One of my dogs rescued it from the counter & tried it. Luckily he is rather large & so the chocolate hasn't bothered him.
