  17. Wow, this looks fantastic, I’d love to win! And I’m checking out their stockists to see where I can get some for myself if I don’t win!

    I cannot tell a lie – when I saw ‘Parmesan and nigella shortbread’, I had a giggle at the thought of Nigella Lawson flavoured shortbread. Then I remembered nigella is the name of a spice. *blushes*

  43. Last year i bought some gingerbread xmas ornaments for my 2 and a half yr old nephew Oli to put on the xmas tree..he loved eating them! My sister just phoned me today to say they were decorating the tree and Oli asked where the men were to put on the tree. The ones aunty bee had. Amazed and so chuffed he remembered, i’m now on the hunt for gingerbread ornaments. This one’s for Oli!

  51. reverse psychology:
    no, i don’t want them. in fact, i have nightmares about receiving such things, and told my therapist about you. every fat, sugar and carb filled bite is sending me on a rollercoaster to hell.

  54. So my two and a half year old nephew Oli was decorating the xmas tree yesterday and says to his mum “where are the men to put on the xmas tree”. Dumbfounded with what he meant for a while, she worked out it was some gingerbread decorations I bought for him to hang on the tree last year….which he steadfastly devoured as soon as they were up. Chuffed he remembered his present from his Aunty Bee, I am on the search for more gingerbread decorations, I think we have ourselves a tradition. This entry is for Oli!

    Posted by Bee | December 12, 2011, 4:42 pm
  55. If I win these I will wrap them up in pretty Christmas paper and give them to me from my children. Thanks kids!
