If you really appreciate chocolate, you should already know about the UK's Green & Black's Organic. They're all about organic and fair trade cocoa, craftsmanship (hello, 18 hours of stirring), and a range of offerings, including dark and milk-choco bars with cherry, ginger, mint, toffee and more. (If you also appreciate wine, check out the Green & Black's guide to wine-and-chocolate pairing.)
BeautyGeeks happens to have available three Green & Black's Organic gifties, each consisting of six assorted chocolate bars, two three-bar boxes of miniatures, and a jar of winter-perfect rich, organic hot chocolate (retail value about $35). ENTER TO WIN with a ChocolatePlease e.mail to firstname.lastname@example.org as quickly as you can -- the staff's tricky; she's close to finding out where I hid everything. If you're not already a subscriber, you'll want to change your status first. *grin* (To international subscribers, I'm sorry. This is open to residents of Canada only.)
The contest closes on Friday December 19th. Three winners will be notified via e.mail.
