    I got myself both flavours when they came out then ended up gifting them. I was gutted. So thankfully I now get to try at least the one. My mil got me the rhubarb one. Though I really wanted to try the clementine! (I gifted that to her so if I hint I may get to try it lol)

    The gin snow globes seem to have been popular, I'm not a gin drinker and even I fancied the rhubarb one. Enjoy everyone who got them.
