Tis the season for eating too much and gaining weight!!! Since you know it’s going to happen anyway, you might as well spend those extra calories gorging yourself with chocolate. So imagine my delight when Ferrero chocolates wanted to send me some of their new dark chocolates to try. Seriously, the email asked me if I wanted to try some free chocolate. Do three toed sloths have three toes???? (clearly I have been watching too much Diego)
Anyway, I have had the Ferrero Rocher chocolates pictured above in the fabulous gold wrappers. Yummy. Well, I could not be more excited that they now come in a dark chocolate form. I have a weakness for dark chocolate. The company describes them like this:
Ferrero Rondnoir dark chocolates are a unique combination of dark chocolate cream surrounding a “black pearl” of fine dark chocolate, within a delicate crisp wafer…topped with crunchy dark chocolate morsels.
I love the … at the end. It’s like whoever wrote this wants to build up suspense as to how yummy this chocolate will be. It did not disappoint. If you like dark chocolate, I think you will love these little guys. They would make an excellent hostess gift or stocking stuffer.
The best part is, you can buy them for others (or to gorge all by yourself) and at the same time do something good for others. Ferrero is donating part of the proceeds from the sales of their chocolates this holiday season to Share Our Strength, an organization working to end childhood hunger. If you are anti-chocolate or on a diet (this could effectively end our friendship) then you can still support the cause by heading over and sending a cute virtual postcard with a customized snowglobe to your family and friends. The first 20,000 people to do so will result in a $1 donation to the cause (for those of you who have to count on your fingers to do simple math-me included- that’s $20,000 donated).
By the way, anyone else who wants to send me chocolate to review for my blog, I am more than available. Plus if it is chocolate, you are pretty much guaranteed a good review. Please send large quantities as I would like to make sure it has been thoroughly sampled before giving my expert opinion. Thanks!
