Dove Chocolate #giveaway

I recently wrote about my visit to the Dove Chocolate Factory in Elizabethtown, PA. I had such a wonderful time and really fell in love with the chocolate, which is why I agreed to be a brand ambassador this summer. I’ll have several tasty recipes coming up in July. In the meantime, I have a fun giveaway today! One of the many treats I received at the factory was a Dove Chocolate variety gift bag with an assortment of flavors. Included in the bag was Dove’s new Silky Smooth Mint & Dark Chocolate Swirl. To celebrate the arrival of their newest flavor, we are giving away one of these variety gift bags! 

Growing up I was never 100% on the mint chocolate bandwagon. Mint chocolate chip ice cream never did it for me. I was indifferent to those little candies left on hotel beds. It has grown on me over the years and this new flavor from Dove is one of the best versions of mint chocolate I’ve ever tried. It’s not just a clever name; the chocolate really is both silky and smooth. I know you’re going to love it as much as I do!

This contest will run through July 8, 2013. I’ll select and notify a winner using Rafflecopter and that person will have 48 hours to respond before a new winner is selected. US & Canada residents only (for shipping purposes, sorry!). Good luck!
