A welcome distraction and happy post - today I have a yummy and generous prize to offer!
A little while ago I discovered some treats called Quarky - made from quark, they're chilled bars that are rich and morish. They're also pretty simple, ingredient-wise, which I like - I do prefer understanding what goes into my food!
These are pretty petite nibbles - each one is 45g - but as soon as you try them you realise why that is; they are very decadent, almost cheesecakey, and more than a couple of bites would be too much.
Five of you lucky folk will each receive a box of 40 Quarkees - they normally come in sensible boxes of five, but so that you can share them round (because believe me, it's hard to let anyone else into them if you know there are only five in the box!) the lovely Arvi from Quarky has made sure you'll have plenty to go round.
They come in four flavours; vanilla, blueberry, caramel and chocolate - I tried vanilla, which was very, very good, and caramel is next on my hit-list. They come frozen (because they don't have added preservatives that's the best way to make them last) but are best once defrosted, so they can even be tucked in a lunchbox for a wee treat to liven up the day.
If you want to try them for yourself, and can't wait for the competition to close, they're available at Countdown and Commonsense Organics stores, as well as some other retailers - check in the freezers.
The competition is open until 7pm on Friday the 17th of March, and all New Zealand readers can enter.
To go in the draw, tell me where you think you'd have yours in the comments below - will you hide them in the back of the freezer and sneak them when no-one else is looking, or take them somewhere to share with friends? Just let me know when you'd have your Quarky, then ensure you check back after the 17th to see if you've won.
Please make sure you include your name when you comment. As usual, I'll use random.org to determine the winner when the competition closes. Good luck!
