October 2014

Here we are, another month done and dusted! Not only is it ‘Review of the Month’ time, but Christmas is fast approaching which means there’s loads of reviews to work our way through, how exciting! If you’ve taken advantage of our ‘20% off’ this week, then head over to the TruffleShuffle reviews page and tell us what you love about your recent purchase!

Last month, Joanna Uffendell told us why her Roald Dahl t-shirt was the best thing in her life – and in return, we gave her £50 to spend on the website…

Willy Wonka is a creative genius. Fact. Lickable wallpaper? Everlasting gobstoppers? He is the Steve Jobs of the confectionary world and should be celebrated and idolised at every opportunity. What better way to pay homage to this iconic, quirky character than with a gorgeous purple tee with his image emblazoned across it. There is no better way. So I bought it, I’m wearing it and I love it. Is there a downside to this product? If getting stopped in the street and being asked where such a stylish item can be purchased can be considered a downside then yes. Otherwise, it is as fabulous as a golden goose, chocolate river and three-course dinner chewing gum all rolled into one :-)


Do you think you’ve got what it takes to make us smile? Give it your best shot….winner announced on Monday the 3rd of November!
