Happy Spring and a Dark Chocolate Give-Away

Today is the first day of Spring. Of course, as I write this I can see little bits of snow swirling outside my window. Can you believe it? I don’t know about you but I’m so ready for some pleasant Spring weather. I want to sit with friends on the patio sipping tea. I want to leave the house without bulky coats and all the paraphernalia. Winter has left her dull mark on our landscape and I’m ready to see some color on our daily walks. We already have some tulips and daffodils trying burst through the ground so I know it won’t be long.

I’m always looking for any old reason to celebrate, and since it’s the first day of Spring, I think that’ll do.

But to add some icing on the cake, today is also the very first International Day of Happiness.

Talk about something to celebrate! Today my idea of celebrating involves a give-away with dark chocolate.

Need I say more?

Celebrate Spring with a Dark Chocolate Give-away

I received a sample of this chocolate to make sure it would meet the high standards I have for you all. That’s the kind of person I am. I was so pleased with the rich, delicious flavor of the chocolate. As if that wasn’t enough, the pistachio nuts, coconut and sea salt added even more pizzaz. I had hoped to eat little bits of the chocolate at a time; imagining my future self taking a nibble here and there. But in the end, and as per usual, my present self won out. Oh, present self! How much you torment me!

One lucky person will get to enjoy nibbling away at two varieties of vegan, dark chocolate from the Sweet Boutique, Sucré:

  • Dark Chocolate Bark and
  • Coconut and Toasted Almond Chocolate Bar.

You may have seen Sucré in mentioned in O Magazine. Or maybe you heard that their rockstar pastry chef, Tariq Hannah, was listed as one of the top 10 Chocolatiers in North America.

Spring is a good reason for Dark Chocolate

Happy first day of Spring!

  1. Peanut butter and Chocolate anything!

  2. I’m torn on which I’d like to try! The dark chocolate packages look delish but those macaroons… wow. I think I’d have to go with one of the signature collection sampler packs.

  3. Thanks so much for having the contest! 🙂

    My favorite kind of chocolate is 60-70% dark with almonds. So good! Actually, from Sucré’s site I would probably pick the Coconut and a Toasted Almond Chocolate Bar as my favorite.

  8. My favorite chocolate is dark chocolate.

  9. Liked your FB page (I thought I already had).

  10. Dark chocolate makes everything better and is the reason for the existence of the Universe. Need a therapist? Nah, just one square of high quality dark chocolate will fix it. Fight with your best friend? Just a bit of chocolate will mend the fences, particularly if it’s shared with that bestie you differed with. What if you need a man? Well, chocolate does have its limitations. Be forewarned that imbibing in only a small bit of dark chocolate may actually increase your desire for a man, girls, but what a way to ease the wait! In short, turn to chocolate in your time of need and in you time for celebration. Versatile and essential, always stock some good quality chocolate in your basic pantry reserves. Wishing all some great chocolate, Sue
