Let's Join the Olympics Fever - The NGNO Way!

The London 2012 Olympic Games has started and we're all excited to be a part of it somehow somewhere. For those of us who love collecting limited edition items... we have a couple of ideas for you...

Fauchon and Pierre Hermé Macarons:
 
Gourmet macaron makers Fauchon and Pierre Hermé have jumped on the Olympic spirit wagon with special edition packaging and new flavors for the London Games. The limited-edition Fauchon macarons will be available at Paris's flagship boutique on Place de la Madeleine until the end of the Games. Haute macaron designer Pierre Hermé has likewise released a special Olympic box set of 12 macarons in flavors like salted-butter caramel, milk chocolate and passion fruit, and jasmine flower and jasmine tea.
 
Coca-Cola Olympics Gift Sets

Coca-Cola - Gold and White Union Jack Available exclusively at Selfridges, Coca-Cola has created a limited edition bottle in celebration of the London 2012 Olympic Games. Decked in a gold and white Union Jack, the iconic bottle has been given a golden British makeover.     Cadbury Limited Edition Cadbury, the Official Treat Provider of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games have released the Cadbury London 2012 Mascots twinpack, consisting of two aerated chocolates featuring eye catching packaging showing official mascots Wenlock and Mandeville in their core poses, highlighted by bright background colors.

Wine Spectator magazine gave the Brut Classic top marks, describing it as crisp and lively with aromas of green apple, cinnamon and vanilla, while Wine Enthusiast called it a nice, everyday bubbly that’s affordable yet elegant. To complement all the limited edition beverage offerings, Waterford has created a pair of London 2012 crystal flutes as well.   A thought for the next Winter Olympics from now - check the below sparkling wine is already available.
