GIVEAWAY: The Collective Yoghurts & Gourmet Parcel NOW CLOSED


In order to say thank you, I've teamed up with The Collective, a Kiwi-originating company now conquering the UK yoghurt scene (I adore their passion fruit and Russian Fudge flavours), who have kindly agreed to donate a months worth of their delicious yoghurts to a reader of Adventures of a London Kiwi.


I'm going to add a little 'something something' and make up a Foodie Penpals-esque parcel of gourmet goodies which will be delivered (separately to the yoghurts) to an address of your choice. It will take food allergies into consideration and contain £25.00 worth of hand picked goodies, unique to you, by answering a few questions over email like;

- Sweet, Savoury or a mixture?
- Good or naughty?
- Do you follow any particular diet such as vegan, vegetarian, low carb?

Life is all about adventures - in this case, Timtams may be involved.

For the gourmet parcel you may be thinking £25 isn't the most massive value - for that much in your average-high-street-hamper that would get a bottle of chutney, some crackers & maybe a cheap bottle of plonk. The nice thing is I don't have a profit margin to make, and this is what approx. £10.00 gets -->

I'm also keen to share some of the delicious products my Foodie Penpals have introduced to me.

Personalised to your likes & dislikes it could include;

  1. This is a fabulous giveaway, thanks. Just been looking at all of the items and a selection of different things would be fabulous. Really love the sound of the fudges. Cheers!

  2. Oohhh so hard! Umm, savoury for me (don't have a huge sweet tooth but I do LOVE jam!), and I like pretty much anything! Barring quiche! (bleurgh). Great giveaway, thank you!

  3. Hmm, I'd like a mixture of interesting but healthy snacks and a couple of things that you've been totally surprised by in Foodie Penpals. Probably savoury, but no chutney as I have loads at the moment! I love foodie penpals - maybe one day we will be paired. x

  4. I would like anything at all in the parcel as i like to try new foods all the time, i'm quite adventurous with food.

    some jams, biscuits and fudges - yummy


  6. Sweet things! But also things I haven't tried before.

  7. Absolutely love The Collective range and love trying out new food so perfect for me and my tummy :) We can't get the new flavours up north yet :( Would be great for our blog too! So much to be excited about!!

  8. Did somebody mention tim tams? I'm IN! I'd love to try out some new tastes and flavours, and you always seem to showcase the best stuff on here! Awesome giveaway, I have my fingers crossed :)

  9. Oooh what a great giveaway! I love getting my Foodie Penpals parcel in the post :) And I adore Tim Tams- I spent a year studying in Oz and became rather addicted, lol.

    Mixture of sweet and savoury would be good, with some naughty treats thrown in! Have a great day :) Beki x

    Hello, hope you are well. I would like a healthy mixture of low-carb goodies please! Kindest regards ;) x

  11. would love a surprise selection. i love to try new things

  12. Wow what a fantastic giveaway. I've never heard of this brand before but I can't wait to hunt it down and give it a try if I dn't win.

  13. I think savoury... I have far too much chocolate in my house, I don't need any more sweet treats!

  14. Oops, I think I commented wrong! There may be a blank blog post somewhere... A mix of goodies would be great, good or naughty! No special diet, all food parcels gratefully received and consumed with gusto :)

  15. Great giveaway with great products - I can't wait to the kiwi-London fusion of food choice! Love the collective range and would love to try their new flavours... And I'm very intrigued by timtams! :)

  16. Healthy all the way for us, and this looks amazing!! Xxx

  17. What a great giveaway. I've been trying to curb my sweet tooth, and would love some tasty savouries to tempt me away from the chocolates!

  18. Ooh anything, I'm adventurous , like most things except tripe

  19. Oh my word what an amazing give away! I would adore any food hamper but the Tim tams caught my eye in particular. I'm addicted to them since travelling to Australia and you can't buy them up North!

  20. I have a massive sweet tooth so would have to plump for some yummy sugary treats! :)


  21. Lucky! We don't get the cherry pomegranate flavour here in NZ, and they've just stopped selling the lemon. We do have Blood Orange tho, and Coconut..so yum. I'm in NZ so not commenting for free stuff, I'm just jel about the cherry pom flavour!

  22. I love absolutely all food and hence would give you free reign!

    I also always pick up The Collective yogurts when I'm grocery shopping, but always put them back on the shelf. This post makes me think I'm missing out!

  23. Heya! Absolutely love your blog.. Found it a while ago when I was searching for lolly cake recipes :)
    But, this give away sounds amaaaaazing. I've been craving the home goodies like crazy the last few months... Especially Tim Tams, Whittaker's chocolate and Cookie Time cookies. Ahhhh! (I have a GIANT sweet tooth! So, anything sweet would be right by me! :D)

  24. All looks fab!!! Especially love the yoghurts!!!!

  25. thats a difficult one I love anything tea related (proper tea not herbal)but unusual baking ingredients always pose and interesting challenge.
