Happy Halloween Gourmet Chocolate Giveaway!

In honor of today’s costume and candy-filled holiday, we’re featuring a festive Halloween giveaway! While everyone loves the classic candy corn and fun-sized chocolate assortment, we wanted to raise the (candy) bar and give you a chance to sample the gourmet creations of locally-owned Sip and Crave Artisan Chocolate.

All you have to do is Like Us on Facebook and share our Halloween E-Greeting on either your Facebook Wall – or a friend’s – for the chance to win one of three sets! Don’t forget to tag us in the post to be eligible.

A significant step up from Snickers, each giveaway set boasts Triple Chocolate Bark from Crave plus a decadent Sipping Chocolate from Sip. Based in Austin, both Sip and Crave are dedicated to using only the finest ingredients for the most intense chocolate experience possible. But what’s a sipping chocolate?

To start, each batch is hand-crafted from high quality couverture Belgian chocolate. Then, the dark chocolate is individually flavored with natural spices and organic essential oils (such as peppermint) to create a rich, drinkable dessert.

Just as quality-minded and indulgently sweet, Crave specializes in chocolate creations that are as beautiful as they are delicious. Their offering of Barks, Truffles and Clusters feature flavor combinations that range from exotic (like Smoked Ganache & Maldon Sea Salt or Aztec Spice) to the classic (like Salted Caramel or Toffee Delight).

Head over to Facebook NOW for your chance to win! Detailed rules below…
