GIVEAWAY CLOSED, THANKS FOR PLAYING! I'LL BE CONTACTING THE WINNERS FOR THEIR ADDRESSES.

I've been wanting to do this since I got back from my trip to London in September, you see, I bought some extra chocolate over there with the intention to give it to you, my beloved readers! So here's the gag: Answer the question that correlates to one or more of the lettered pictures in the collage and I'll send you some of my favorite British Chocolate. Each picture is taken in London, England and nowhere else--there are no trick questions. Click on the picture to enlarge it.

-- Contestants may use any means to find the answers to the questions, so long as it is honorable and legal (honor to be determined by me)

-- Each entry must be entered as a comment to this post (no email entries will be valid) with the letter clearly typed first, and then your answer

-- Each person can answer for as many pictures as they want, but can only win for the first three correctly answered.

-- Winners will be determined on a first come first served basis, i.e., first correct answer to the picture question wins.

-- Contest is only open to US residents, each winner must be able to provide a valid US address, or the next chronological winner will be chosen.

-- Contest is open for as long as it takes to determine winners for all of the questions

-- I reserve the right to make judgment calls or to alter the rules as I see fit

So everybody, take your time, do your research, and enjoy yourselves because I have some to-die-for-chocolate just waiting to be eaten by you! Good luck! I hope this isn't too easy or I'll be totally embarrassed...

I just realized that I had NO idea where you guys went last month. I knew Mom was there with the kids, of course, but I never thought to ask where you were. Sorry about that! Hope you had a fantastic trip!!!

Juli said...

A-London's Transport Museum. Gotta love the internet.

Sarah said...

Okay how about
F. By the river thames...do I need to be more specific?
k. wagamamas?
J. fountain in Hyde Park

That's all I can do...I hope I'm right on at least one.
I also hope your trip there was magical. How fun!

ali said...

Very good Sarah! I was hoping you'd chime in on K.

I'll give you K and F, but I'm looking for more on J. I'll make the question more specific...

Kara said...

C. Greenwich, I think.
H. From tea time. But where? Orangerie?
J. The Diana memorial fountain in Hyde Park.

Some of these are toughies and I even lived there!

ali said...

one out of three ain't bad Kara!

C and H are still up for grabs, and it's looking grim...

Melinda said...

Is I taken? I believe it is a fountain in Trafalgar square.

Melinda said...

Is H the Tea House?

ali said...

Congrats Melinda, on I, but H is not the Tea House, nice try!

H and C are still up for grabs...

Melinda said...

C. Covent Garden???

Melinda said...

One last try

H. Piccadilly cafe

Melinda said...

H Tea vending machine

ali said...

Way to go on C Melinda!

H is still up for grabs, I guess it's a little more obscure than I thought. I'll give it a little longer and then release a hint ;)

Chocolate is forth coming, don't worry! Just give me a day or three to get through Halloween and I'll send it out :)

Ketutar said...

H - that's part of Wagamama's dessert menu... there's one Wagamama in Soho. Could that be it?

Ketutar said...

Oh, US residents only... forget it :-)

ali said...

Sorry Ketutar, thanks for trying anyway! It's nothing personal, just thought it would be too easy for Brittish people, and also there's the shipping cost that would be astronomical...

throuthehaze said...

man, H is hard...I don't think anyone is going to get it without a hint

ali said...

ok, here's a pretty big hint: the answer is in the comments...

When H is answered, I'll send out the candy!

Sarah said...

Wagamama's dessert menu?

ali said...

Alright Sarah!! Way to read the comments!

That's it for my little giveaway everyone, I'll send out the candy asap, thanks for playing!
