Mmm! Mmm! Mmmmm!
The most scrumptious package arrived at SWSU HQ this morning from Rococo, our favourite purvayors of fine chocolates. 8 Organic Mini Bee Bars where bound together with coloured ribbon to make up a gift set comprising a bevvy of tasty flavours...
The best? Ooh it's hard to say but the Organic Milk Chocolate with Sea Salt was pretty damn good, as was the Cardamom Organic White Chocolate and the Rose Organic Milk Chocolate.
Overall verdict: delish!

Bubbling to the TOP of the recessionista’s favourite SHOP this week is Bibico.
Yep, this cute little ethical label run by Spanish senorita Nieves Ruiz, was so popular during its trial at Fairtrade Fortnight that it’s just been given a permanent concession at Topshop’s flagship store in Oxford Circus.
Each piece is hand-created by nimble-fingered women in fair-trade co-operatives in Mumbia, working together to create Nieves’ vision. And she loves that we love it, recently enthusing that "work has already begun on the next collection and it gives us the greatest sense of achievement to know that my friends back in India have a brighter future to look forward to.”
Power to the People! www.bibico.co.uk
