White chocolate pencils - perfect alternative to white chocolate cigarellos

White chocolate cigarellos - why chocolate pencils make a great alternative.

You know what it's like, someone asks you to make them a wedding cake or similar, and they insist on using white chocolate cigarellos for decoration. The problem is every chocolate retailer is out of stock including online chocolate retailers.

Luckily, The Chocolate Trading Co - premium quality online chocolate & chocolate decoration retailer - have just introduced a range of chocolate pencils.

Made from high quality Belgian chocolate, their new chocolate pencil range is currently available in white, milk, dark, marbled, white and dark chocolate striped chocolates.

And as if that wasn't tempting enough, they sell them at wholesale prices direct to the public and trade alike.

Each chocolate pencil measures 200mm in length and features a tight curled chocolate spiralling towards a pencil like end.

Twice the length of most chocolate cigarellos, the chocolate pencils can be easily trimmed or cut to length using a hot knife.

So don't despair - if you're unable to wait for white chocolate cigarellos stock to arrive, then do give careful consideration to the alternatives, like chocolate pencils.

Whether your school is holding an Easter egg hunt for the pupils, or your local Pre-School / Nursery or Infant class is making Easter birds nests or other Easter themed crafts, then I've had a tasty idea.

Mini chocolate eggs, which are available in mixed foil colours and bulk bags.

The Chocolate Trading Company has a mouth-watering selection of mini chocolate eggs, just right for your Easter egg hunt or other Easter themed event.

And if you're holding an Easter competition, then their gift wrapped bags of Easter novelties - Bunnies & Chicks - Chocolate Bunny lollys or their selection of premium dark and milk chocolate Easter eggs all make superb, fun gift present ideas for children of all ages.

Having previously been a helper at a local village Pre-School, I know first-hand how difficult it can be to source the right items at the right price without having to commit yourself to 1000's of eggs in one order. Once again, the Chocolate Trading Company have made it extremely easy to order minimal quantities of their mini-eggs and other novelties. You can even order some items without gift packaging - why pay for what you don't need?

And with their bags of mixed colour foil covered eggs, it's easy to put together a great, colourful collection of delicious Easter eggs, without the hassle of having to order large quantities of each colour, to mix yourself.

Of course, if you are looking for larger quantities, then you'll find you can order single foil colours in bags of 100 and 635 eggs!

So take my advice and take the hassle out of sourcing Easter eggs and other chocolate novelties for your Easter themed School or social event and visit the Chocolate Trading Company's website for loads of Easter egg and other scrumptious gift ideas.

This whole Northern Lights thing...


Someone recently commented that I hadn't posted anything for a few weeks - thankfully, nothing broken (ha-ha) but seriously, life is ticking along and it's nearly February.

Or put another way, this time last month was Christmas Eve!

Anyway, this whole 'Northern Lights' thing - you know, them being visible from the UK rather than just the outer rims of the Arctic.

Is it only me that thinks it all sounds a bit like 'the day of the triffids'?

Avert your eyes now!

And this blast of solar radiation heading our way.... Isn't that what happened to the Fantastic Four?

I don't wanna be a rock.
