Halloween Treat Challenge 2010


The Chocolate Cult is pleased to announce our 2nd annual Halloween Treats Challenge for chocolatiers, confectioners, bakers, and purveyors of cocoa related treats.

The rules are simple.

Contact the Chocolate Priestess via thetammyjo@gmail.com and arrange to send a sample of your Halloween treats for review on The Chocolate Cult.

Send your sample early enough, and I will devote one day in October exclusively to your product — the earlier the better, because the thousand readers we get each month will have more time to order from you.  The sample does not need to be large, but there should be enough of each treat for the Chocolate Priestess to write a five-senses review of the product, and keep in mind that a photograph we take of the product(s) will accompany the review. 

On Halloween, October 31, 2009, I will name up to six winners of the challenge.  The categories will be Best Mass Produced Halloween Treat, Best Gourmet Halloween Treat, Best Baked Halloween Treat (for businesses that create their own unique products),  Best Independent Halloween Novelty, Best Halloween Treat Source (or those places that sell the products but do not create the treats themselves), and our across category winner will be labeled Best Halloween Treat.

In addition to be the featured product for the day your treats are revealed to the world, the winner of each category will be offered the opportunity to place a FREE ad on the blog for 30 days.  That ad must fit on the sidebar or at the bottom of the page, and you would need to provide the HTML code for it.  This means that you’ll get extra notice for an month before the very busy winter holidays.

Our winners last year included Taraluna, Equal Exchange, and The Cookie Sandwich Company.

Please contact thetammyjo@gmail.com if your company is interested in this opportunity.
