Quick Hide the Wrapper

It’s chocolate week! My favourite week of the year (well apart from cake week, chip week, desert week, but most definitely NOT healthy eating week!) 

How can I not love chocolate when I live a chocolate button’s throw away from Cadbury World! 

Of course, Cadbury World was not always there, originally it was just Bournville Village, built by the Cadbury family. 

200 Years of Cadburys

John Cadbury was from a family of quakers who did not drink alcohol. As an alternative John made tea, coffee and drinking chocolate and sold it in a small shop in Birmingham. The drinking chocolate became really popular and he opened factories in the city. His son’s took over the business and in 1978 George Cadbury was looking for somewhere less industrial to open a factory and chose Bournville, a village outside of the city centre. He built homes for his workers and a cricket field to encourage them to keep healthy. Bournville still remains a village today, and the cricket ground is still there. 

Moving on from drinks Cadbury’s began making chocolate and became more and more successful. Did you know that Cadbury’s Roses were introduced as far back as 1938 and are still popular today!

Halloween Sweets

Cadbury’s also have some fab Halloween Sweets this year. Look out for these spooky Goo Heads in Store, or order them online, I’ve always found Cadbury’s gift shop really reliable.

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I’ve also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me…is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I’ve loved. If I don’t love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It’s always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I’ll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
