Mmm… chocolate… hazelnuts… wafers… I’m not sure who came up with the idea of mixing the sweet of the gods with earthy hazelnuts and crisp wafers –wait, that would be Ferrero. And their chocolates are truly divine.
Here’s my little story. This was in the 90′s (I was a wee lass back then!) and it was either just past Christmas, or just before New Year’s. The past is a little hazy, but whatever the exact date was, the fact remains that my big sister got a special present from grandma. It was a different looking present, to be sure… we conjectured the many things the mysterious package could be… from a jewelry box, to a music box, and finally to an index-card file which we settled on as being most likely. (My, but we did get useful presents regularly in those days!) When she finally opened it, my jaw dropped and I said, “Candy? That’s it?! I guess it’s better than an index-card file…” To my little, unsophisticated mind, toys were preferable to edibles. What use were edibles, anyway? You ate them, they were gone, and you had nothing to hold and play with afterwards. My dad laughed at me. “You’ll change your mind one day about getting food as presents,” he said. And oh, how right he was. (I must admit that after that childish outburst, I went on to savour 5 of those delicious spheres…)
Anyway. Back to the present day. I still love and indulge in Ferrero Rocher, so when I was contacted to see if I would be interested in a giveaway for a 200 gram box of Ferrero Rocher chocolates… well, what do you think I said? I’m so excited and pleased to have the opportunity to give back to my lovely readers!
Unfortunately, this contest is open only to Canadian readers. Apologies to all my international friends!
