Ok, guess what? No, go on -- guess! I'll give you a hint: A massive delivery of free chocolate was delivered to yours truly. Oh yes, it's totally true. Happy birthday to me!
I don't think you understand... I'm not one of those dumbies who claims to prefer chocolate to sex, but come on! A box FULL of chocolate Fed-exed to your door? That's the stuff of childhood dreams. You see, Dove Chocolate is looking to stake claim to ladies' hearts here in Canada and so they contacted really super cool and especially attractive bloggers to
chat about the Dove Pleasure Kit
. I kid you not, that's what it's called. And seriously, I was pretty pleased. Scads and oodles of chocolate, a wine glass, a foot care kit and a journal to scribble chocolatey prose. And being the incredibly cheap date that I am -- I have no qualms about putting out. You know, giving a little sugar to the sugar.
The kit included three types of chocolate : Dark, Milk & Dusk. And today, I'm happy to report that I'm all about Dusk
. It's milk mixed with dark and it kind of rocks my world. You see, I tried to pretend to like dark chocolate. I tried to be an adult about it. I suffered through squares of bitterness while nattering on about health benefits and how only real connoisseurs can appreciate the dark stuff. Meanwhile, I was forced to keep my childish milk chocolate habits to myself. Oh, those were trying times! But now, I can hold my head high (well as high as my new double and triple chins will allow) and eat at the adult table. But to be fair, the dark Dove is pretty good too. It tastes like semi-sweet chocolate chips stolen from cookie dough. That's a good thing, by the by. And the milk chocolcate is all milky sweet goodness. I haven't turned my back on good old milk. I'm faithful that way.
I have to say I'm pretty impressed with the Dove purse packs or man-purse packs if you're so inclined. They look like modern condom packs and they hold four foil wrapped chocolates. Each wrapper has an inspirational message written inside. And with the way the world is today, we could all use a little inspiration. So eat until you feel better! This is kind of the idea behind chocolate eating anyway -- Dove's just being a bit more literal.
One of the best things about getting all this chocolate is the re-gifting possibilities! I've given purse packs to my friends, doled out nibbles to co-workers and even rewarded family members. I have never been so popular! Thanks Dove. I may gain ten pounds but hopefully I'll gain 10 new fair weather friends.
