Ok folks, after the excitement of the last two days guessing the contents of our mystery package from China and giving away a £50 Voucher, we move onto matters of NATIONAL importance and we need YOUR INPUT!!!!!

I had the very great pleasure of taking afternoon tea this week with a friend of mine and she was mortified when I cut my scone in half, applied butter and jam and replaced the top.

She screamed like a banshee that that was NOT how it was done! One must NOT eat a scone like a sandwich she declared before fainting at the horror of such a spectacle!

So I later googled 'Scones with jam and butter' and this is a screenshot of the resulting images. My point is, why are there so many pictures of 'Sconwiches' if one isn't supposed to eat them like this!?!?!?!?!?!?

Oh, and we couldn't agree on 'Sconn' or 'Scoan' with regards to the pronunciation either!!!!

Ordered some replacements from eBay

Who can guess what these replacements are? The pen is to give you an idea of the size of the parcel

I'll send a £50 Woodfarm Voucher to the first person who guesses correctly

EDIT: WOW! What a response! I can't reply to all as I'll be here all day!!! I will try to 'like' each guess and let you know if anyone gets it right and I'll do a reveal video if no-one gets it!

EDIT TWO!!!!!: With well over 100 wrong answers I thought I'd give you a clue. Whatever it is, there are 8 of them in there! Keep guessing folks

EDIT THREE: We have a winner! Watch the video!!!!!
