It’s my favorite day of the year! Later tonight, I’ll be handing out toddler-size chocolate bars to excited kids and sullen teens, so why not wrap up a fun week on the blog with my very first giveaway? For you, like some sort of half-assed Oprah, I’ve got some bars of Theo chocolate, fresh from the factory, and some of my favorites from the Northwest Chocolate Festival: Dandelion small-batch single-origin chocolate bars from Belize and Madagascar (You know how when you go to wine-tastings and some dude with his nose in the air swirls his glass and says he can taste piquant cherries, verdant summer, children’s laughter, and a hint of impudent squirrel, and all you taste is fucking wine? This is like that except you actually CAN taste the different notes. Amazing!), burnt sugar salted caramel sauce from Hot Cakes that made me weak in the knees, and some of the best toffee I’ve ever eaten from Holm Made Toffee (they make several amazing flavors and I almost included red pepper or lavender but decided to go with a classic instead).
All of this stuff has been paid for by me, is not sponsored or affiliated in any way, and is being given away for the joy of giving and also to maybe spread the word about the blog a bit. If no one enters, my game plan involves eating all of it in one sitting while crying, which sounds delicious except for the crying part so it’s really a win-win.
