Chocolate Anyone? {Giveaway}

What is it about chocolate? Just the smell of rich, velvety chocolate makes my mouth water.

Does it yours?

If it does, then this is absolutely for you.


A while back, I was sent a tasting kit from Brookside Foods of the dark chocolates to sample. Friends visited later that same day and I have to admit something to you.

I hid it.

I did.

I gathered up the three bags I was sent and I stashed them in my pantry. I can pretend that I already had dessert made and didn’t want to change my menu plan for guests, but in reality, I loved these little dark chocolate nuggets surrounding pomegranate, acai with blueberry and Goji with raspberry so much I wasn’t sure I could share them.

Isn’t that horrible?

I feel completely ashamed.

The next day as I pulled the bags out of the hiding spot in the pantry, I was overcome with guilt and immediately had to find my husband and make him taste them. I knew admission of guilt is the best way to move past something like this, so I quickly confessed that I’d stashed them behind the black bean cans.

Thankfully, my husband didn’t act like I was the worst person in the whole wide world, but did tell me my payment had to be giving him a bag of his own. Heh.

I married one smart cookie.

Lucky for you, Brookside Chocolate, part of the Hershey Chocolate® company, is giving a tasting kit to one reader of the Add a Pinch family. Now, if you stash it in your pantry when folks stop by, that’s your business entirely. I won’t judge.

    Although all of them look delicious, I would really love to get my hands on the Dark Chocolate Acai with Blueberry. Between the dark chocolate and the blueberries, the antioxidants would be so very beneficial!
