It’s been really hard to find good quality Valentines sweets in the shops this year, I had been really hoping that Tesco would do their nets of Love Bugs again this year …. but unfortunately they haven’t …. so I have really had to scratch about for bits and pieces. There are a few nets of chocolates about but there are not enough contents to justify buying them to split up for the price. I think that I may struggle at Easter too to keep prices down, as I only like to use recognised brands of chocolates.
Anyway, I managed to find bags of chocolate hearts in Marks and Spencer at £2.50 for about 25 chocolates and bags of 16 small packets of Love Hearts and Thorntons Love Rocks in Poundworld…..
I’ve bulked up my bags with a mix of small lollies, chocolate coins, a milky way and strawberry chews.
I simply put them in a cello bags, with a ribbon and wooden tags (which were a present from my Crafty friend Carly). I find that people at work like to buy “Penny Bags ” like these for their children …..I now all I have to do is cross my fingers and hope they will go down well ……
