    Seen them here (but out of stock now)
    Chocolate Machine - Hawkins Bazaar

    Maybe you could pop into one of the shops (I believe there is one in the White Rose Centre in Leeds)?

    The price seems to vary as you get a different number of chocolates included from the different shops.

    They're out of stock at every Argos store I can access in Sheffield and Manchester as well as for home delivery. Unfortunately, delivery is £5 so the Cadbury Gifts Direct website ends up charging £17.50 for it! Thanks for the scouts though guys. Might have to put up the £17.50 and get 5% back from Quidco!

    I don't see the point :confused:, even with 80 chocolates, at only 10p a time, you'd only make £8 out of her, that's not even 50% of your outgoings...

    :devil:

    Now that's a lot of chocolate plus you could use it as a home defence weapon.

    Haha, that's a whopper of a bar!

    The dispenser is kinda a personal thing, it's an "in" joke we've had for several months and I think I'll go for it regardless of how tacky it is - the fun is in the actual present as opposed to it's functional capacity in this instance. Looks like £18.50 is enough money to prove how much I care! :thumbsup:
