We're looking for 500 people to be part of a new panel over the next year; The Chocolate Forum. We're looking for a wide range of people to take part, including Mumsnetters and non Mumsnetters - so if you know someone who might be interested please do pass the link on. It's open to everyone including those with children, without children, grannies and granddads.

We can't say too much at the moment but in brief this will involve working with Kinnerton confectionery and Mumsnet over the next year to help develop ideas for new chocolate products as well as discussing their current ranges (there may also be some taste testing involved too!grin)

If you are selected to be part of the panel you will need to commit to taking part in at least 6 activities between now and September 2014. Some of these projects may have quite a quick turn around and responses will often be needed within one week. Each task will be incentivised with a prize draw.

So if you'd like to be part of The Chocolate Forum please sign up here.

There are quite a few questions on the sign up form as we really need to ensure we recruit a wide range of people so please bear with us. If you're selected your name and address may be passed onto Kinnerton so they can send you items relating to research tasks, however none of your other details will be passed on to anyone.

We'll be in touch with those selected soon.

Thanks and good luck,

Katie @ MNHQ

NB this has already been sent to the MN research panel so if you've already signed up there's no need to sign up again.

I know a man who would love to sign up for chocolate forum, but link just goes round and round have you got enough people yet

<sigh> I've signed up. How selfless I am...

PiddlingWeather Tue 10-Sep-13 17:40:47

have signed up, cause I fit the first two criteria smile

That question 24 - it would have been nice to have had an 'It depends' answer!

Seeing all the chocolates on display this week for Christmas and even a few random creme eggs, then I would expect them to last well past Christmas (or Easter for the eggs).

Luxury chocolates with a creamy filling - wouldn't expect them to last as long. Everyday chocolate bars - maybe three or four months. Things with nuts in - a month or two maximum.

Sorry, not trying to be difficult as my mother would have it! but I think there are times when 'It depends' can probably yield some interesting info that it wasn't possible to stick into the answers on the page, so have stuck it here instead...

Ah, that makes sense, couldn't remember if I had or not!

If you get the insight home page (lucky you) then it means you're signed up already - if you want your DH/P / Mum / Dad to sign up on the same device - then please use this link instead thanks

TheSkiingGardener Mon 09-Sep-13 17:58:44

Every time I click on the link it redirects to the insight team page, is it just me????

I've signed up„ in N.Ireland and shop at M&S grin

Theimpossiblegirl Sun 08-Sep-13 15:39:50

I've signed up DH. He'd better share if he's picked and I'm not.

Tee2072 Sun 08-Sep-13 08:02:00

I fit the top two, does that mean I'm in?

InMySpareTime Sun 08-Sep-13 07:45:47

I've signed up.

DinoSnores Sat 07-Sep-13 23:00:36

The link doesn't work. My DH was going to sign up but he can't!

jadenash2013 Sat 07-Sep-13 09:48:52

I think ive signed up , when I finished the sign up it took me straight back to forum unusual as usually get a message saying completed! oh well will see .

RubyRR Fri 06-Sep-13 20:02:52

The sign up link doesn't seem to link to the sign up option.

Theimpossiblegirl Fri 06-Sep-13 17:48:22

You can have impossible DH- does he need to sign up to Mumsnet or can he go through me? (I've already signed up for this). The only problem is that he's not very good at sharing so you'd have to send extra for me & the impossible girls.

KatieBMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 06-Sep-13 16:45:03

Thank you to everyone who has signed up so far smile

We're still looking for people who meet at least one of the following criteria:
- Shop in M&S Food
- Live in Northern Ireland
- Don't have any children living at home
- Men

If you know anyone who may be interested please do pass on the link to this thread (it's open to Mumsnetters and non-Mumsnetters).


Theimpossiblegirl Fri 06-Sep-13 16:38:26

I can't remember if I ticked M&S now, as I don't usually shop there, but today I did. I went in for some jeggings and came out with a couple of bags of food too.

footflapper Fri 06-Sep-13 08:43:07

Haha grin I've signed up to be a chocolate tester!
Hope it doesn't go against me that I don't shop at M & S, closest one is about 20 miles away..
