Valentine's Day Chocosol Chocolate GIVEAWAY! / by Alex Boake

It's that time of the year again. Beginning of February. Tons of crap covered in red and pink hearts begin to creep into your vision. Every time you enter a store, you're assaulted. You just can't escape it. Yes, my friends, it's that mass marketing season that leads up to Valentine's Day. I've never really bought into the idea that you have to buy a whole bunch of stuff to show your partner that you 'really care'. You should make the effort through the year to show your love--and not just with gifts! However, having an excuse to go out for dinner or to give a small token of affection isn't necessarily a bad thing. Especially when you can support local businesses.

Speaking of which, this year I partnered with ChocoSol Traders, a local chocolate making company. Together we dreamed up, and I created a special Valentine's Day card which features the flowers of the Forest Garden Trinity. Check out that link to hear ChocoSol founder Michael Sacco speak of the teachings of Spiritual Ecology that inspired the illustration.

You can only really get your hands on this amazing gift card if you're in the Toronto area...but luckily I am offering the chance for one lucky person to win a copy--as well as a selection of ChocoSol's stone-ground, fair trade, horizontally traded, vegan, soy-free, paleo-friendly, chocolate bars. Phew, what a mouthful! A mouthful of pure goodness!! 

The prize includes (~$50 value):

  • 1x 'Darkness' Large Size Bar
  • 1x '5 Chili Bullet' Large Size Bar
  • 1x '100%' (Sugarless) Large Size Bar
  • 1x '65% Artisan Blend' Large Size Bar
  • 1x '85% Uranga' Single Origin Large Size Bar
  • 1x Spiritual Ecology Valentine Card

Contest closes February 16th, and the winner will be notified the following day. Prize will be shipped out by February 24th because I'll be out of town. Yes, it's Valentine themed, but the chocolate will be arriving afterward. All of this chocolate is out of my own pocket, and the giveaway isn't sponsored. I just like to share the love. Open to US and Canadian residents only, due to shipping costs. Sorry! Thanks for your understanding.

Good luck to all entrants! Hope you enjoy all your time with your sweetheart, whether you celebrate Valentine's Day or not.
