GIVEAWAY!! Brookside Chocolate Tasting Kit

wm.brookside.chocolate1

Remember that scene in Stand By Me where the boys are sitting around chatting about important issues like if Goofy is a dog? And Vern says if he could only have one food for the rest of his life, it’d be Pez?  I have my own food list (because I would simply demand more than one thing from whomever made up the one-food rule). On that list, next to mac n’ cheese and ice cream, would be wine and chocolate and cheese. Yes. I would survive on wine and chocolate and cheese forever if one could survive on wine and chocolate and cheese forever. Though I might also request some crackers for the cheese. So I would say I very much enjoyed this gift from Brookside. And I think you will, too.

 

These fruity chocolates are so so good, the perfect bite of dark, smooth chocolate with a burst of fruit flavor. Seriously. I know I sound like a commercial, but that’s a pretty accurate description. I got a package of each flavor: Dark Chocolate Açai with Blueberry, Dark Chocolate Pomegranate and Dark Chocolate Goji with Raspberry. My favorite is the Pomegranate, methinks. I had to stop myself from eating them all before snapping the photo. And I did pour myself some red wine to taste with my chocolates. It was about ten in the morning, but given it was for “work,” I felt that was OK. I also got two stemless wine glasses, a white ceramic cheese board, a cutie cheese knife, a white ceramic serving bowl and even a $30 AmEx gift card. Aah, the perks of this gig! Do you want the same gift?
