I've got a fun giveaway for you today. It's not just candy but candy that you create. We first mentioned Chocomize last December. The company specializes in custom chocolate treats. Pick a 3.5 ounce chocolate (dark, milk, or white, all premium Belgian) and then the fun begins. Go nuts (macadamia, hazelnuts, and almonds are just some of the selections), add fruits (pineapple, dried raspberries even goji berries), get creative with add-ins like pop rocks and mini marshmallows or really step into the extreme with selections like beef jerky and vegetarian bacon. Then you can decorate with fancy touches like edible gold, sprinkles or a chocolate plaque. There are thousands of variations possible.
The company also donates one percent of the proceeds from each Chocomize chocolate bar to one of their selected charities. In the Chocomize spirit you get to choose which charity to support. One percent has added up raising money for Doctors Without Borders, Action Against Hunger and the Michael J. Fox Foundation.
Today we are giving away one $75 gift certificate for custom chocolates. Create your own or chose from some of their popular flavors like the milk chocolate Smores bar with mini marshmallows and graham teddy bears; the white chocolate Tighty Whiteys with mini marshmallows, sliced almonds and coconut flakes; the Spicy Special milk chocolate bar with black peppercorns, mini chipotles and cayenne pepper; or the dark chocolate Tropical Island bar with banana chips, coconut flakes and cantaloupe melon dices.
