Half Price Biscuit Tin Of The Week
I know those of you in the UK can probably hear Harry Hill in your head when reading the title (I can hear it myself!) but it did seem right under the circumstances!
As you may know, if you have been reading my blog for a while, I have a thing for tins - I love tins, old & new, & Mr C says I'd buy anything if it was in a tin!
I love that in days gone by the tin was just as important as the contents & remember those special biscuit, chocolate & toffee tins that we would get at Christmas.
Nowadays, it seems they are mostly generic with just a picture of the contents on the lid....all except good old M&S, who come up with some fabulous tins every Christmas so I am always tempted to buy them. I have noticed that they seem to be having 'specials' every week, selling a particular tin of biscuits at half price, so how could I resist?
Two weeks ago I bought the Gingerbread Man tin below which is filled with mini Gingerbread men.
Last week it was this super musical Woodland biscuit tin - it winds up underneath & the inside layer moves around while playing a tune - it is filled with mini white chocolate chip cookies.
I thought I'd let you all know as I'm sure lots of you would like these too - I wonder which tin is half price this week? I have my eye on a rather lovely one in the shape of a shelf of vintage children's books.....will keep you up to date!!
