Mikado's current campaign is called 'Stick out your personality' and it aims to discover all the weird and wonderful ways that people eat their Mikado sticks. Personally I've seen a fair few people do the walrus (don't even try and tell me you haven't pretended to be a walrus with two Mikado sticks, I simply won't believe you), people who use them as edible chopsticks, people who spear fruit or marshmallows onto them... Of course there's lots of other ways your personality can affect the way you eat your Mikado - you might throw them in your gym bag for a post exercise treat, you might keep a stash in your desk at work for the 3pm slump, or you might keep them in your glove box for long car journeys. They're basically the perfect 'on the go' treat, right?
ANYWAY - enough gushing about those exciting chocolate-y sticks of goodness, what you really want to know is how you can win some Mikado goodies, right? You can win a Mikado selfie stick and some boxes of Mikado just by uploading a selfie of yourself eating Mikado and 'sticking out your personality'. Just upload your own selfie on Twitter and/or Instagram using the @Mikado_UK handle and #MikadoBy hashtag – and don’t forget to tag me @rosieoutlook so I can see your pictures! The competition closes at midnight on 4 September and Mikado will send you your prizes direct.
Of course I couldn't ask you all to send in your Mikado selfies without doing one of my own. Here's my 'Stick out your personality' selfie - this pretty much sums up my approach to snacking. What, they're all gone??
