Normally we associate chocolate with gifts for women but the simple fact is as the men who follow, read and enter contests on The Chocolate Cult demonstrate our Sacred Substance has universal appeal not limited by biological sex. Father's Day is approaching fast in the USA and your Chocolate Priestess has gifts of chocolate sent out to her two fathers. Others of you might not have thought this far ahead though and very soon ordering online will get more expensive if you want him to have his chocolate by Sunday, June 20, 2010. Add into the fact that ordering now in the summer generally entails extra shipping fees and you might want to look in your local area for good cocoa gifts.
Three pieces is one serving with 240 calories, 9g saturated fat, 10mg cholesterol, 40mg sodium, 1g fiber, 24g sugars, 2g protein, 2% vitamin A, 4% calcium, and 6% of the daily iron your body may need. So not the world's healthiest but if you can trust your Dad to eat it in moderation, or better yet, show him how to eat it in moderation or share with you, it's a holiday, celebrate!
So simple yet pleasing combinations for a reasonable price. I notice there are often coupons in our local paper for Russell Stover gift boxes near holidays so check your paper, too. Tune in next week when I'll look at another option from this company in time for Father's Day or any other event you can think of.
Sisters and Brothers, may you, too, take the time to slowly appreciate what the Divine and human ingenuity have offered you in chocolate.
