Foodie Friday Giveaway: Gourmet, Organic, Specialty Chocolate from Fearless Chocolates!

This week, I have an AWESOME giveaway to share: some of the best organic, gourmet chocolate I’ve ever tasted from Fearless Chocolates! But first, of course, I have to announce the winners of last week’s giveaway. Last week’s giveaway had THREE winners! Congrats to….

Arushi – our grand prize winner!

And our runners up – Emily and Emily! 🙂

Congratulations to all of you! Just be sure to send me your mailing addresses, and you should be receiving your all-natural protein shakes in a few weeks. Thank you so much to everyone who entered!! And of course – you all have another chance to win in this week’s giveaway: FIVE gourmet, organic, specialty chocolate bars from Fearless Chocolate.

Yes, one lucky winner will end up with a stack of chocolate just like this from Fearless (ok – maybe not a stack quite this high 🙂 ). Fearless Chocolate is really a unique company. Not only is their logo an elephant (how cute is that!), but they are on a mission to produce organic, raw, high-quality dark chocolate with amazingly inventive and vivid  flavors that will surprise and delight all chocolate lovers.

The awesome folks at Fearless Chocolate sent me five of their chocolate bars to try (and one lucky winner will receive all five chocolate bars as well!) Each bar is flavored with exotic spices and superfoods, and are 100% Kosher, dairy-free, gluten-free, raw, soy-free and all use mineral rich, unrefined whole sugars. And of course, the chocolate is luscious and tastes great.

The flavors are:

  • 75% Dark as Midnight: A deep, rich, earthy chocolate that just melts in your mouth and only has 2 ingredients!
  • 70% Matcha Green Tea & Peppermint: A wonderful combination that marries two great flavors – and you can really taste the green tea which is pretty cool.
  • 70% Super Seeds: Made with hemp, chia and flax – this bar has a great nutty flavor while providing the benefits of three Omega 3 powerhouses
  • 70% Exploding Coconut: This one might be my favorite – although all of the flavors are amazing. This chocolate has actual raw, organic coconut flakes in it, covered with dark cacao.
  • 70% Sweet & Hot Hibiscus Ginger: The biting spice of Ginger sparked with the fruity and floral notes of the Hibiscus flower. It will keep your tastebuds intrigued!

There are two other things about Fearless Chocolate that just makes them a stellar company: 1) All of their chocolate boxes/packaging is made from 100% recycled paper and will bio-degrade in 6 months. 2) Fearless donates a 1% “bite” of its annual profits to change-makers suggested by their customers. You can even suggest organizations yourself on their website here. So by entering this giveaway, you’ll be receiving a fantastic product AND supporting a good cause!

Foodie Friday Giveaway: Gourmet Chocolate Gift Box (the perfect holiday treat!)

Can you believe it’s almost Christmas already?! I feel like 2010 has totally flown by – it’s crazy to me that it’s already December 17th! And of course, today is Friday 🙂 So get ready everyone – this is my last Foodie Friday Giveaway for 2010! Woohoo! And let me tell you – we’re definitely going out with a bang on this one. But of course, first – the winner of my last giveaway was… Sarah!!


Congrats Sarah! Just send me your mailing address and your cookies should arrive soon! Thanks again to everyone who entered!! I hope everyone’s having fun with my weekly giveaways 🙂 Soo – here’s your final chance to enter and win for 2010 – with Madécasse Madagascar’s amazing gourmet chocolate sampler pack!!

This gourmet chocolate gift box includes 4 bars of amazing chocolate (their most popular flavors!) Explore their rich 44% Dark Milk bar and their fruity 63% and 70% cocoa chocolate bars. And – for a change of pace, tickle your tastebuds with a savory crunch: cocoa nibs rolled in natural sea salt! In addition to these 4 bars (63% cocoa, 70% cocoa, 44% milk, and sea salt & nibs chocolate), you’ll also receive 8 assorted mini squares of chocolate and a vintage style Madagascar post card!!

Here’s what some of their bars (and part of the gift package) looks like up close:

I love how their packaging is so rustic and simple! The folks at Madécasse Madagascar were kind enough to send me their 44% milk, their sea salt & nibs bar, and mini squares of the 70% cocoa bar to taste – and I have to say – this is some of the most delicious and creamy chocolate that I’ve ever had! And the coolest thing about Madécasse Madagascar (other than the fact that their chocolate is amazing) – is that all of their chocolate is sourced and made IN Madagascar! Why Madagascar? Because many experts consider Madagascar cocoa the best in the world. Sadly, even though 85% of the world’s cocoa comes from Africa, less than 1% of the chocolate is made there. Well, Madécasse Madagascar is on a mission to change that – and all of their chocolate is sustainable and fair-trade!

So – by eating this chocolate (and entering this giveaway) – you’re supporting a very worthy cause as well 🙂 Isn’t that the perfect holiday gift? So be sure to enter this giveaway today!!
