(Closed)^^ Books, Chocolate & Tea Sweepstake ^^

As I was the last lucky winner of this, the yummiest sweepstake, I'm going to start the next round now. What could be better than tea and chocolate and lots of books for the holiday season?

Here are the rules, copied from jo_an_a:

1) PM me (please put Chocolate & Tea Sweep in the subject line) with your name and address which will be sent to others if you are the winner/decoy (No PM = No entry). (If you only want to send a prize, and not participate in the draw, it's enough to post here).
2) Winner will be drawn on November 28th and everyone will get a PM with the address and name of the winner/decoy.
3) Decoy will also be drawn so that the winner will not know they have won till their parcels start to arrive.
4) Please keep the winner a secret, it is more fun that way!
5) The winner of this contest must agree to hold the contest again in a couple of months time.
6)If you are the winner, please post here the goodies that you received.
7)If you have any preferences for tea and/or chocolate, please state them in your profile and post here in the thread.

This sweep is international! This sweep is self explanatory, all you have to do is send a book (any genre, wishlist or not), some tea and chocolate.

Please count me in! I'm a fan of most teas and chocolates. My only concern about sending chocolate in the mail is the possibility of it melting in the package. Any other previous participants have thoughts or comments about this?

As a side note, nuts are OK for me, but I'm not a fan of coconut.

Welcome :)

Melted chocolate doesn't seem to have been too big a problem, but I guess it doesn't hurt to wrap it in some clingfilm, or aluminium foil to minimise any damage should it melt.

I'm in again.

Should I be lucky enough to win, dark chocolate only please. It may have nuts or other fillings.

Bump :)

Closing on the 28th November.

This time from anathema-device! Thank you for the wishlist book "The Catcher in the Rye", the Bio noir negro chocolate and many bio, organic tea bags! With so much sugar this time of year, maybe it's time to eat black chocolate!

It was wonderfully super kind for you to send me an extra parcel. Now apparently I'm the decoy, thank you so much. :)

In there was Whittaker's milk chocolate bar, some tea bags (Twinges Earl Grey, Bigelow Constant Comment and black Yorkshire tea) and a book from my wishlist "The Truth About Melody Browne" by Lisa Jewell. Wow! Thank you!

Happy Holidays keeta1!

Your parcel arrived yesterday, I was quite excited to open it but way too tired to open my computer to thank you.

The book I received was quite unfamiliar to me, Fludd by Hilary Mantel http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14846312
There was also big bar of milk chocolate with almonds, several bags of herbal tea and some Santa napkins. :) Quite a treat!

I hope my parcel didn't get lost during the Christmas frenzy, I sent it on Nov 29th so it should have arrived already.

For you lovely Christmas box-parcel with many goodies! It was a bit broken from one side but nothing is missing as I can see! Thank you for the wishlist book "Tuesdays with Morrie: An Old Man, a Young Man, and Life's Greatest Lesson ", for the minty chocolates as well as the chocolate mousse ones (they were gone in a minute!), for the bookmarks, for the several lovely postcards with explanations and facts, for the tote bag, the string bookmark with the cute owl, the two packets of tea (China Golden Monkey and China Jade Snail) and finally for the powder for chocolate drink!
