[UPDATE 2012-12-15: The contest is now closed. Congratulations to Linda H. on winning the chocolate tin. Thank you all for entering!]
Because I had only just returned from a business trip, some of the blogging activities were put on hold until now. One of which was sampling some chocolates from ChocolaTas. The first time I tried its chocolates was more than 2 years ago, when Mr. and I went to Granville Island to check out some of the Winter Olympics festivities. I’m not going to go all sappy here, but this definitely brings back some sweet memories…
Arriving in the mail was a cute little pink tin.
Inside were 4 pieces of chocolates: Single Malt Whisky, Lavender, Apple & Cinnamon, and Romana. I liked Lavender and Romana (raspberry ganache in a jacket of raspberry chocolate); the flavours were subtle yet prominent enough for you to taste it. This is especially tricky with lavender, as it’s often a hit-and-miss using this floral flavour.
Even though I’m not a fan of whisky or apple cinnamon, the other two pieces of chocolates were equally enjoyable. All the ganache centres were silky in texture, and I like the fact that they were all dark chocolate so it’s not overly sweet.
Now is your chance to a 4-piece tin for yourself! ChocolaTas has graciously agreed to give away a 4-piece tin to one lucky individual.
To enter, simply fill out this two-question survey and let ChocolaTas know whether you like MILK or DARK chocolate! Pretty easy, right? Make sure to let them know that you heard from VanFoodies! The contest closes on December 14.
This will make a perfect pre-Christmas treat! Good luck!
