For the first time ever on the Not My Year Off blog it’s competition time!!
Check it out and go ahead and enter to win some brilliant goodies.
Anchor Butter is bringing back Elevenses!
Well… It never really went anywhere; it’s just been a little forgotten.
We want to inspire people who feel the need to have a nice little sit, with a cup of tea and a nibble at around 11 o’clock.
You might call us crazy, but we find that a buttered crumpet or slice of cake at this time of day is just what’s needed. The kids are at school, you’ve made countless packed lunches, the dogs’ been for a walk and before you start your day (as if it hasn’t already been going for hours!) you need a bit of a recharge.
We want people to embrace this mid morning snack, in all its glory and we want you to join us! To help bring Elevenses back we’d like to offer all the readers of Not My Year Off the chance to win a full set of Anchor memorabilia! That’s a butter dish, a pair of egg cups, a cake stand, a cake tin, a tea towel, an apron and a toy van!
All you have to do is tell us what’s your favourite elevenses snack? Leave a comment below with your answer and a way you can be contacted (e.g Twitter name).
We’d love to talk to you more so why not hop over to Anchor’s Facebook and Twitter for a chat.
THE WINNER IS ….. Kate Bissell.
There are also 4 runner up prizes courtesy of Anchor Butter. They are as follows:
