Sisters and Brothers, hang out because we are about to impart on our most active Giveaway period yet here in The Chocolate Cult. Remember, you can enter any giveaway no matter if you have won before but you MUST follow the guidelines for each giveaway or you will be disqualified. Last giveaway saw half of all entries disqualified because they left out one of the steps. Your Chocolate Priestess doesn't ask a lot but since chocolatiers generously donate we must ask you to do something more than simply leave a comment. These giveaways in December are so generous that we also require a minimum number of entries so tell your friends, tell your family, tell your kids to enter, too.
Today we are look at two Christmas themed bars from Bloomsberry & Co. a New Zealand company now available in the USA. These are bitg 3.5oz bars in a paper box wrapper over a partly recycled paper internal wrapper. Both have cocoa butter and chocolate liquor in them; the Milk chocolate has milk. If your food allergies are particularly severe, their factories also make products with soy, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, and eggs. I know this is important to a few regular readers so I'm going to work to remember to put this information into my reviews from now on as my gift to all of you.
Thank you, Bloomsberry, for this giveaway and for letting the Chocolate Cult reveal your products to the world. Remember this excellent milk chocolate should work for any milk chocolate lover and if dark chocolate so far has been in an easily grabbed bar at the check out line of your grocery store, this is a higher quality and an excellent way to introduce serious dark chocolate into someones life this holiday season.
Now let's talk Giveaway.
Bloomsberry is offering five, that's right, five readers bars that were reviewed today. This is a very generous offer so I want a minimum of 15 people to enter this giveaway. After you've entered, get your friends and family to enter, tweet about it, put it up on Facebook or your private blog, but get the word out. Your chances of winning are ZERO if we don't get at least 15 entries. The Praim folks are offering the same giveaway starting on Wednesday so this will also be a FAST giveaway so you can get the bars in time for the holidays. You MUST follow each of these steps to be entered to win. Winner will chosen on Wednesday, December 7, 2010, right before the Praim post. You also must be living in the lower 48 states of the USA for shipping purposes.
1. You MUST be a public follower of The Chocolate Cult. In your comment leave a note saying how you are following us: Blogspot, Facebook, or Networked Blogs. Please make sure the name you use in the comment matches your listing via that method because I do check.
2. Go to Bloomsberry's website HERE and state which "Chocolate for a Cause" you'd be most interested in buying and why. Note: These are NOT the bars I've reviewed above.
3. Make sure you have an email I can easily find, generally by clicking on your name. I do not recommend putting it in your comment for privacy's sake but I need to contact you and the nice folks at Bloomsberry so you can arrange to get your chocolate stocking stuffer.
I will choose the winner using the same random number generator I use all the time and contact them privately first thing on Wednesday morning so enter NOW. Then get others to enter so we reach our 15 entry goal and 5 of you will get a chocolate stocking stuffer of your very own.
