So hallo and its been a LONG delay in blogging. I have been sick and swamped at work, but finally am back.
So lets look back at a very cool little fair Mr. Moo and I went to a few weeks back AND a giveaway!
The weekend of 25 and 26 July saw the first "Winelands Chocolate Festival" happen at Lourensford Wine Estate in Somerset West.
This is the first Chocolate festival and I loved it. Amazing variety of products and loads to taste before you buy... WIN! And a goodie bag on entry.
There were complaints that for your R130 you didn't get enough, that it was too full, that the grass was wet (yeah, really) Look, this was the FIRST festival and they had to move the venue at the last minute....so give them a break. What I would have liked to see was a wine glass on entry and a few more wine stalls, and a larger venue with better flow, esp with the hot chocolate section. BUT, considering this was the first event and with the venue change....I think they did an amazing job. We walked out stuffed full of chocolate.
Oh and my favorite macaroon lady from Danielas was there too. I cannot tell you enough that if you are a macaroon fan, to go to her shop and go crazy.
For the give away, we have 2 slabs of Tasha's Fantastic Fudge. This is a very cool company with exceptional products. To stand a chance of winning the fudge, like their Facebook page, join the Psychedelic Cow blog page on Facebook.
It got very busy, but it was a lovely event and well done to all involved and I look forward to even better next year.
