Choc-O-lympics @ Sweet Sol
Aug 11 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

You must book in your space for this very popular event!

Sweet Sol’s ChocOlympics πŸ™‚

Join us as we get ready for the ChocOlympics.

“What’s that?” you might ask. The ChocOlympics is an event played with, well… chocolate and marshmallows.

From Smarties to Chocolate Buttons, we have an arrange of fun games to play.

Heres a list of some of our exciting games…

1. Chubby Bunny – how many marshmallows can you put into your mouth without swallowing or chewing?

In this game, players place a marshmallow into their mouth and say ‘Chubby Bunny’. if you can say Chubby Bunny cleary you pass that round and go on to the second round where you repeat the same process whilst keeping the original marshmallow in your mouth. This process is repeated until you can fit no more marshmallows in your mouth and cannot say “Chubby Bunny” or you have either chewed or swallowed any marshmallow or have cannot saying Chubby Bunny anymore. The winner of the game is the player who fits the most marshmallows into his or her mouth. (Age 10+)

2. Smart-Sticks – How good are you with chopsticks?

In this game, you have to move Smarties from one bowl to another with using chopsticks only. You have 1 minute to move as many Smarties as you can, any Smarties that drop out of the chopsticks and on to the table cannot be used and you have to start again. The winner of this game is the one with the most Smarties in the bowl.

3. Malt-Straws – Maltesers and straws… what could possibly go wrong?

Start with a bowl of Maltesers in the centre of the table and straws set by the side of each player with a small bowl. You have 1 minute to play this game. When the time starts, use one end of the straw to suck up a Malteser in the centre of the table. Once the Malteser is attached to the end of the straw you have to transfer it to the empty bowl by your side. If you drop the Malteaser you have to start again. The winner of this game is the person with the most Maltesers in his/her bowl.

4. Button Head – Time to button up!

This game involves giant chocolate buttons and sticking them all over your face. How… by licking the back of the chocolate button of course. You have 1 minute to play this game and all buttons are to stay on your face if any fall of you have to start again with a new chocolate button. The winner of this game is the one who has the most chocolate buttons on his/her face at the end of the game.

5. Jaffa face – Are you peeling an orange?

Each player will be handed over 1 Jaffa Cake and within 1 minute you have to stick the Jaffa Cake on your forehead. But it’s not as easy as that as the player has to carefully peel the chocolate off from the cake and remove the sponge. Once the orange jelly is free from its encasing, you have to clean it using your tongue and stick it to your forehead. The winner is the person with the cleanest orange jelly on his/her forehead.

Good Luck and have fun!
