At £3.95 a bar it is on the pricer side for chocolate, so let’s see if it is worth it. Handmade…

Prepare yourself I am dropping the festive bomb. Yes there is no denying that Christmas is fast approaching and frankly I am excited, and what better way to get ourselves in that fa la la la laaaaa mood, than kicking back with Not on the High Street Christmas press show.
