Free chocolates - West Yorkshire, maybe elsewhere

Found 30th Jan 2007Made hot 30th Jan 2007
We're giving away free little boxes (one per applicant) of specially-made "love heart" chocolates for St Valentine's Day. Inside the lid you'll find the message: "From....... To.......Please be careful on the roads today... and every day... because I love you"

Sign the message and give it to a loved one on February 14. Or why not sneak into the glove compartment or leave it on the dashboard or somewhere they're bound to find it. What a wonderful surprise that would be... what a loving gesture! What a great way to tell them to drive carefully, don't speed and come home safe...

Crashes don't care who they happen to. But we do... and so do you. So on Valentine's Day and every day, please take good care of yourself and each other on the roads.

Are these things designed for "fans" of speed cameras or something?

What an odd way to advertise a daft government policy...

Still, I guess it's free chocolate! Can you get them with "Cannabis is bad, kids!" and "Gambling is great!", too..?

Great, thank you. Voted hot

I did wonder what my speeding fine was being used for - when I saw this I realised.

That's why I posted it!

That's messed up their big media campaign next week then!:

"This St Valentine's Day offer will be publicised on our website safetycameraswestyorkshire.co.uk and in local newspapers and on radio, so we expect a lot of interest and demand. It's only fair that you, as a SCaN reader, should have priority."

They've not started the PR and have run out.

Yep... Sold out!

Seems I was too slow... No speeding ticket for me then, eh?!?

I have a feeling these won't turn up.

I am not so sure they have sold out either, I think they have just pulled the deal until next week when they do the advertising for it. It's plausible if they suddenly had a surge in demand.

Live in hope though, free choci is good.

Sorry, sold out!

Just missed it. :-(

That's a really hot Freebie!

Just got this in an email from them:

Well I am only a few miles from Bradford so am almost certainly in the area for these and I got this email too...

I am pretty sure these won't turn up for the rest of you. I am almost certain they cottoned on to it being listed somewhere like here and pulled the deal until next week.

Anyway, hope the rest of you do get your free choci.

Classic..!

Sounds about right for this place at times.

People do remember, for those of you receiving this email, it was probably nasty cheap chocolate anyway.

Okay, well despite me getting an email from them saying I had missed out due to the demand... I got chocolate in the mail this morning.

Just scoffed them now with my coffee - they were alright!

I too got the email saying they had none left...

BUT..
