Glee Gum sent us a "Make Your Own Chocolate From Scratch Kit" and they are also going to give one of you a kit as well. We'll get to that giveaway at the end of this review. I had a kit all ready from a non-profit organization that I bought it from so I decided I need an assistant to help me try both out.
The story of chocolate was simple and short but covered the discovery of the Aztec drink by Europeans to the modern cocoa farmer. Given the image on the box, I thought we might get more about the Aztec and maybe even instructions and spices to make a drink like them. That was really the only less than ideal part of this kit.
Want to win your own Chocolate Kit? To entry to win is easy, just follow these steps, and yes, I do check to make sure they are followed. Please only comments from folks in the continental USA.
1. To enter you must be a public Follower of The Chocolate Cult either through blogspot, Facebook, or Networked Blogs. I do check this each time so if you joined for the last contest then left us you must rejoin -- honestly why would you leave your Sisters and Brothers in Cocoa behind? You can join in either of those three ways linked to on the left hand side of this blog. Make certain that your listing as a follower includes a way for me to contact you directly by private email. If you win and I can't contact you, I'll move on to the next person in line.
2. In a comment, tell me who you'd share your kit with and why you think this would be a great git for them. We don't need real names, definitely not full names, just "my son" or "my best friend" or something like that.
3. You must leave a comment below by Midnight, Friday, November 19, 2010. Make sure I can email directly so I can contact winner. If can't email you, I'll redo the drawing until I get someone I can directly email.
The order of your comments will determine your number for the random drawing so the first person to comment will be #1, the fourth person will be #4 and so forth. The winner will be chosen using this random number generator.
Thanks to the folks at Glee Gum and to Razzle for helping me try out this kit. We made several people very happy with the chocolate we made. If you want to find any of their products, check out this store locator. For example, I found out that our local coop carries the gum but not the treat kits.
