Bettys Chocolate Tour de France Bear - Giveaway #49

Chocolate Bear
Whilst so many are caught up in football fever, lets not forget another sporting epic which will soon be hitting our very own shores. Yes indeed, the Tour de France kicks off in Yorkshire this year and as this is only the fourth time the UK has hosted the race, I suspect that Up North they might be even more excited about this than they are about the "Beautiful Game".

Somewhat surprisingly, as it is a little out of the way, one distinguished Tour de France competitor recently made his way to my door. He was such a charmer, I couldn't help but let him in. Although he wore a medal proudly around his neck and sported a very jaunty yellow jersey, he didn't boast of his prowess once during his stay. In fact he watched over us for several days, in a sometimes excited but friendly way, ensuring we wouldn't forget the upcoming race. Then one day he just disappeared. Actually he disappeared over several days as he was rather large, weighing in at 400g. He was also quite delicious, made as he was from Bettys Swiss very moreish grand cru milk chocolate and coated with sweet luscious marzipan creating the prized maillot jaune or yellow jersey. The coveted yellow jersey has never tasted batter.

It just so happens that the finish line of the first stage is at Harrogate, home of Bettys, the famous tea rooms and chocolatier. When they discovered that 1919, the year of their founding, was the same year the yellow jersey was introduced, the idea for the 1919 Victory Bear was born. Wearing hat, riding goggles and a spare inner tube strapped across his chest, he looks the epitome of intrepid, debonair sportsmanship.

The 1919 Victory Bear is joined by a whole host of limited edition cycling treats all with a Bettys twist. Retailing at £29.95 this is a must for any cycling enthusiast or even just those partial to cute chocolate teddy bears.

Thanks to Bettys for the chocolate Victory Bear. There was no requirement to write a positive review and as always all opinions are my own.
