If you hadn't already noticed, I'm a big advocate of eating what you want when you want. I have no shame in saying that for me, almost every day involves chocolate in some shape or form. And when it comes in at a mere 11 calories like Mikado sticks do, well, that's even better.
I hadn't had Mikado in years until an enormous box turned up on my doorstep - ironically as I happened to be arriving home from the gym. Nostalgia swept over me. I've got many fond memories of eating Mikado as a kid with my brother. Swords fights were involved, as was sticking them up our nose if I remember correctly.
As you can see, I got a little carried away with my Mikado - who doesn't put their chocolate in their hair for safekeeping? Now it's your turn. Mikado are offering up prizes for the best #selfies uploaded to Instagram eating their chocolate sticks and including their handle @Mikado_UK and #MikadoBy. Tag me (@ItsaLDNThing) in your selfie too as I get to pick my favourite to win one of the prizes. Head over to my #MikadoBy selfie here.
