Will Blog For Chocolate!

That's right you heard me. There's not much I won't do for chocolate. I love it so. But when my friend Lisa told me about a company that will actually send you FREE chocolate and all you have to do is blog about it, it was a no brainer. I love to blog and I love chocolate!! Easy Smeasy. (I will also blog for coffee!)
After sending in my information I got a sweet response from one of the company's workers. Needless to say we hit it off and started emailing back and forth like we were old school chums. I now lovingly refer to her as "The Chocolate Whisperer!"
I even got to choose which chocolate I wanted to sample, though I don't think that's how they usually do it. I think she was just being nice as I had perused the website and happen to state a couple things I was drooling over.

My only concern was that I live in Florida! Why is that a concern? Well it's HOT! And chocolate and hot don't mix. Ask Lisa! So I looked at the tracking date and was determined to be here when my chocolate arrived. Yesterday came and it was important that I run out for a couple of hours. Surely it won't come in the peak of the day in the 2 hour span that I'm gone. Right? Right? Wrong. There is sat on my hot front porch for who knows how long. I felt a cold chill run down my spine. Will my chocolate be a goopy mess? Please no!
I didn't panic. I let my husband open the box and we decided it would be best to just let the chocolate sit a while before we opened it. It was packaged very well and had what used to be an icepack in there to help keep them cool.

Long story short. They still looked great. We only lost one double chocolate truffle to the heat but licking it off the paper was not a problem.

Now for the review. Stick with me!
First up was the Organic Peanut Butter balls. My husband liked these a lot but I'm guessing that my sweet tooth is a little more sensitive (and probably ready to come out) then his and I didn't think they were sweet enough. But if you like the all natural taste of peanut butter and chocolate, you'd love them.

Next up was the Double Chocolate Truffles. The kids tried these. They all seemed to like them quite well. Don't you love this picture?

Last up was the Organic Chocolate Coconut Balls.
LOVED THESE!! Yes these were my favorite out of the bunch. In fact I had 2 with my coffee this morning. I'm pretty much on a sugar caffeinated high right now, hence the super long post that I hope you're still reading.
Now that you've made it this far, do you want to know how you too can blog for chocolate? Well head on over to Chocolate.com or you can go directly to the form here. But I suggest perusing the site and all its yumminess first, just to give you an idea of what you're getting into! LOL
And if you just love chocolate but don't want to blog about it I'm sure you'll find something there to tempt your tummy. They have great gift ideas!!

Thanks for sticking it out with me my friends. I hope you enjoyed my chocolatey post today!!
HUGS!

  11. Your chocolate looks fabulous my friend! I know I would love those coconut beauties!! Sigh - I'll have another spoonful of melted bittersweet truffles to console myself...

    How fun! So glad you got to do it and that it turned out OK!

  13. Kim,

    I too, confession time, went directly to the site and filled out all the required info. I got a generic response saying they will be in touch shortly. How long before you got additional details???

    This is a great idea and I only wish more people did this. I mean satisfy a woman's craving for chocolate and we get to blog about it too! That takes care of two of my favorite hobbies and past times in one!

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  22. How fun is that! You are the ideal candidate for them.
    So glad it didn't melt. I had an incident like that when lived in FL. I had ordered gift baskets for my brother-in-laws. All the chocolate stuff inside was melted, so they let us keep them and resent more baskets straight to them. Yahoo!
