Description:

I've not seen one of these about for ages, so thought I'd do one myself!

In this swap you will be required to send two different chocolate bars from your country (bars of your choice) to one partner. Put a note in with them saying why you chose the chocolate bars you did. But PLEASE check profiles for any allergies! Being someone with a lot of allergies it's disappointing when you get something you can't eat :(

Price requirement of at least $2/£1, we don't want any cheap chocolate!!

Summer is gone (for us anyway!) so the chocolate won't melt in transit. Please wrap it sufficiently so it doesn't get broken up in the post.

No-one with a rating under 4.7 please. No newbies and no flakers, or you'll be banned! Well filled out profiles are a must too. No recent 1's.

This is international, but because it's only chocolate it won't be that heavy or expensive to post!

In fact guys please leave allergies here so it's easier for everyone!

I am allergic to whole nuts (nut trace is fine, but no whole nuts or peanut butter!) and I am allergic to honeymelon... I've never encountered honeymelon in chocolate before but just incase!

Our summer is still going very strong, so I will have to sit this one out... if you do another one in November or so, I will join!!

whowillloveme 08/25/2010 #

Watching for a bit but I intend to join. No allergies, but I am ovo-lacto vegetarian, which means I eat dairy and egg, but nothing "dead" eg meat, fish etc. There's a list at the top of my profile of things I can't eat that are found in candies.

camelsamba 08/25/2010 #

Is it $2/£1 per bar, or total?

yomousey 08/26/2010 #

Oh I LOVE chocolate, especially dark. I don't have any allergies but I don't like peanut butter.

I would do this, but heres somethign I dont think anyones thinking of...........its a HOT summer, by the time you get it in the mail, its going to be a pudle of choclate, instead of a bar.

scrapcowando 08/26/2010 #

I love all types of dark chocolate, and chocolate with nuts, almods and raisin. No peanut butter. In Italy it is still a little bit Hot temperature, wrap the bar in alluminium sheets.

@BBQ if you read the swap properly, you will see that the host has already addressed your concern. Late August is no longer any kind of hot summer in many places. If it's too hot for chocolate where you are, then don't join, problem solved. I'm sure there will be other chocolate swaps in both fall and winter. I for one absolutely love chocolate and summer swiftly fading here, so I'm putting this on my watchlist. :-)

I love chocolate with peanut butter!!!

cloudylimeade 08/26/2010 #

It's not hot in the UK anymore :( so I'll watch for now.

whowillloveme 08/26/2010 #

It's never been too hot in Wales lol. It's just been a torrential downpour the whole time here. People are going out in scarfs and using their central heating! If you get me, your chocolate will be more at risk of freezing than melting LOL.

Sorry, scarves *

(Editor/proofreader - I can't help it!!)

LilyLestrange 08/28/2010 #

As previously mentioned, the summer is well and truly over in the UK! I made this an international swap as I know many other places are no longer experiencing hot weather either. Don't worry, I'll hold a lot more swaps like this when it's cold for a lot more people!

@camelsamba it is $2/£1 altogether for the two chocolate bars, this is a minimum requirement and does not include the price of shipping.

i am a newbie and i have read that newbie is not allowed but i would absolutely love to give my partner one of my country's chocolate. please let me. i am goin to do it :( pls. pls. pls.

fepamplona 08/30/2010 #

I dont want any chocolate with peanut butter, liquorice or alcohol, and I don't like dark chocolate. I love red fruits, caramel and nuts (any kind)!

onlyincambodia 08/30/2010 #

My preference is dark chocolate with 65% or more cocoa in it. I also enjoy cocoa nibs, nuts or a cream filling (such as hazelnut, marzipan or ganache), BUT NO FRUIT OR FRUIT FLAVORS.

weeatcrayons 08/30/2010 #

too bad West Texas temps are still over the 100s or I'd join!

LilyLestrange 08/31/2010 #

Sorry guys, but you aren't allowed to give preferences in this swap! It's sender's choice, the only thing you have a say in is things you are allergic to.

If it wasn't sender's choice then there'd be no point in writing a letter, as all it would say is "I bought this bar because, well, you told me to".

If you're not allergic to it then there's every chance you might receive it!

camelsamba 09/ 1/2010 #

Thanks for the clarification. Since "cheap' (mainstream - Hershey's and what not) candy bars in the US run around 75 cents in convenience stores, I wasn't sure! Even with uncertain weather, I'll risk it - hopefully I'll get an international partner, one who loves to send things like Violet Crumble / honeycomb bars. :^)

[and hey, it's always hot SOMEwhere, no matter what time of year!]

saralizzy1981 09/ 1/2010 #

I like everything except salt, lavendar, or spicy. Or cheap. :)

milkiss 09/ 1/2010 #

I don't like peanuts, and dark chocolate. :) But I like almond!

saralizzy1981 09/ 4/2010 #

Oops, sorry, I forgot it's sender's choice. "Send me something awesome!" There, I'm taking back what I said a few days ago! :)

LilyLestrange 09/ 5/2010 #

@saralizzy1981 Don't worry, it might be sender's choice but they're still not allowed to send cheap chocolate, so rate accordingly!
