Your mouth can thank me later

Did I not just tell you how eating chocolate is basically good for the planet? Of course I did. Now, because I want you all to be global ambassadors of energy created from chocolate, do I have a little treat for you. 

Spying an article in a magazine, I  discovered a new company called Chocomize. After reading about their new twist on the goodness of chocolate, I had to visit their site. Oh my...talk about a need to feed. 

Chocomize lets you play candy maven by selecting your favorite chocolate base: dark, milk, or white and then choosing from their list of 90 ingredients to customize your little vittle in the best possible way to make your mouth water. Oh, you can't decide between organic cashews and almonds? Don't pick one. Have both. Want toffee AND dried raspberries AND crystallized rose petals? Come to Mama, baby. You can add up to five ingredients so your possibilities only end around 10 billion. My picks? First: milk chocolate with Oreo and m&m's. Second: dark chocolate with cinnamon, cardamom, and cayenne pepper (maybe they can name that one the JennyMac.)  But are they good?  I have one answer: MMMMMMMMMM.

And the company, run by three young entrepreneurs fresh out of college, is really about a great product. Further, I applaud anyone who creates an opportunity to work for themselves. If MiniMac graduates from college, and builds a business from a vision, I will tell everyone.  So it is also fun to share good news about other young people who are building an empire. Especially one made of chocolate. 

But back to the goods. How does this involve you? Because I am giving away  some yum yum yum.  Who wants a bite? Or more specifically, would you like a 25.00 gift card to Chocomize? Rules are simple. 

1. First entry: Leave a comment between now and Sunday night. Get your little chocolate on.
2. Extra entry for being a Twitterella and giving it a tweet.
3. Extra entry for linking on Facebook. 
4. Extra entry for linking the chocolate love to your blog and send me the link. 

Go check out the website and see what you are missing. And they have also given us a discount code to use: jennymac if you just cant wait to see who wins. Good luck and happy sampling. Your mouth can thank me later.

I know I don't stand a chance, but I just have to say that for this, I might just have to break my diet (briefly). You're like a pusher-- get us hooked on the freebie, then we crave more, more, more! Yeah, I'm weak...

Oh, for the love of all that is chocolate! My husband and I were perusing chocomize last night; alternatively cursing and worshipping you. What an amazing and awesome concept! We have plans to sit down and order some custom chocolate tonight.

This is an awesome idea! I actually read about them in the, eh, kind of embarrassing Costco mag. Yup. I am a dork. ;-) Two young men created the idea from a melted bag of candy. How amazing is that?!

<><

the mama bird diaries said...

chocolate is so super fabulous.

Laoch of Chicago said...

It's funny that an abundance of choices can cause difficulties. No doubt that such a diverse selection of flavoring options would cause me to choose a bitter and unsavory chocolate concoction. I think for me, less would be more.

JoeyRes said...

That's the kind of thing that gives me performance anxiety. I'd probably end up creating a peanut m & m just so I'd be sure to like it!

ajm said...

Even their name, Chocomize, sounds tasty! Oh wow . . .

Andrea said...

Who could resist chocolate? My BIL once said he didn't like chocolate, I called him a nazi.

Margarita said...

What a dream come true! Even if I don't win I'm buying some chocolate :)

Dumblond said...

What the crap?! It's like the whole universe doesn't want me to stick to my diet!

Jennifer said...

Currently on a big chocolate kick. Can not have too much. I'll toss my name in the hat. :)
