Burley Fudge Shop Treat Box Competition May 2020

As you may have seen on our Burley Fudge Shop Facebook page or via e-mail if you are subscribed to our mailing list, then you will be aware that we ran a competition this week to win a Treat Box (full of £30 worth of goodies!). If you haven’t seen it, don’t worry! You haven’t missed out, based on the success of this one we will be running more in the future. The Treat Box contents are 6 assorted packs of Burley Fudge, 4 packs of assorted sweets, a jar of preserves and a jar of honey.

In order to enter the competition you had to answer the following three questions, all answers were discoverable on the website:

  1. When did Chris and Jenny start making fudge?
  2. What is our current flavour of the month?
  3. What is our favourite frozen fudge?

Burley Fudge Shop Competition Answers

The answers were, 1) 1998, 2) Lemon and Elderflower Fudge and 3) Sea Salt Caramel Fudge. We had an overwhelming amount of responses total 188, 58 by Facebook Messenger and 130 via email. A vast number of these were correct, 181 to be precise. The competition ended at midnight Wednesday 27th May and we wrote down all the names onto paper and placed them into a bowl, recording a video on facebook to announce the winner on Thursday 28th May. Everyone was thanked personally for entering the competition,

The Winner

This is what Dan had to say when he received his prize “I found Burley Fudge on the way to Bournemouth with my wife. When she was growing up she had many day trips to Burley with her family and describes it as her happy place. We had a day there and due to my love of fudge we stopped in Burley Fudge Shop. Such a friendly atmosphere and a huge selection of the best fudge around made it the highlight of the trip. Despite buying 6 different flavours of fudge we had to stop on the way back through as I’d eaten far too much already”

Thank you very much Dan, we’re delighted for you and we are so pleased that you love Burley, and Burley Fudge. Best Wishes Chris & Jenny
