My First Blogoversary: Favorite Things Giveaway

Yes, time flies: It's already been a year since I started blogging.Thanks to everyone who takes the time to stop by and read my blog! As you all know by now I love to share with everyone so I decided to have a giveaway with some of my favorite things.
My favorite chocolates: Milka Extra Romig & Milka Caramel, this chocolate is Swiss of origin and I'm sending you 100 grams chocolate with extra creamy praline filling and 100 grams chocolate with caramelcream and a liquid caramel filling.

My favorite candy: Zwolse Balletjes, this is an oldfashioned hard candy made in my hometown.

My favorite cookies: Verkade Fijnproevers Toffee Crunch, nice cookies with crunchy toffee and rice crisps, covered in chocolate.

Ofcourse I had to include something typically Dutch, what could be more Dutch than clogs?
The winner will get these cute stone clogs with Delft Blue design on them.

My favourite new herb to cook with: Lemon and Berry, great on fish

My favorite Dutch spices: Koek- en Speculaaskruiden, great to use in Pepernoten.

Dutch Sprinkles: 8 tiny boxes of 5 different variaties of sprinkles.

I decided to add one more favorite of mine to the giveaway... My favorite beer: Rose beer, this is a belgian white beer with raspberries that is actually coloured pink: a real girlygirl beer!

Marthe, I am never sure if my comments gone through. I have a problem reading the language. I wanted to say congrats on your first year of blogging! I have really enjoyed seeing your recipes and reading about your experiences. Milka is my favourite kind of chocolate! (If this ends up as a duplicate comment, just get rid of one!)
