Desperately Seeking Chocolate Coins

It seems like yesterday but once again I'm faced with the annual challenge of a suitable gift for Mister Barlin's birthday. I love giving gifts but find it difficult to putting together something inspiring and unique for men and after some thinking, I settled on a jar of chocolate coins but alas, these are very much a seasonal product so when I searched through various department and specialist stores at Chermside, I came up with nought. Where was I going to find the rest? After snatching up four bags in Big W CBD, I recalled the TV advertisements for Tom's Confectionery Warehouse, a crazy Brisbane icon that indeed trades every day 8am - 9pm except Christmas. So with Spensley in tow, we arrived to find every chocolate and sweet under the sun including these giant Easter Bunnies. You can purchase this one kilogram rabbit as shown by my lovely assistant for less than $30.
After composing ourselves, we found the chocolate coins we sought, piled them into a pretty jar and popped it into the post. A creative, unique and attract gift sourced for another year. Huzzah!
