Vaseline have another mystery flavour in the pipeline, and they've decided to begin the launch with a blogger crafting competition. Mystery tins were mailed out to UK bloggers with a juicy selection of crafty bits including sequins, ribbons and glitter. Our task: guess the new flavour and jazz up the blank tin using our creative skillz. The payoff: a trip to Paris for us if the tin is picked... and a trip to Paris for a lucky reader too.
My eyes generally light up at the prospect of anything crafty, so I was thrilled to empty out a Jiffy bag full of these exciting art supplies.
Also inside the bag were some clues as to the mystery flavour.
If that weren't enough, one of the ingredients on the tin is "wine extract"... so I think it's pretty safe to say that the new flavour is... Pink champagne.
I based my design around the famous quote attributed to Dom Perignon, the 17th century monk who was involved in producing the first champagne. On first tasting the bubbly, he supposedly said "Come quickly, I am drinking the stars!"
Whether or not that's true, it was good inspiration for my star-covered tin. I also gave it a studded edge with some some pink gem decals, and added a bit of glitter to some of the stars.
The new Vaseline flavour will go on sale in Selfridges on 5th September, costing £3.49.
We've also been told that the people at Vaseline would really like to hear your suggestions for future limited editions. So if there's a flavour you'd like to see created, let us know in the comments.
