OMG how I do love chocolate! I don’t mean your regular run-of-the-mill supermarket chocolate. I mean,super dark and slightly bitter, gourmet, dark and raw chocolate. You see, this real chocolate is actually good for you…and, it makes you feel awesome from the mood enhancing molecule anandamide it contains while also infusing you with all sorts of nutrients such as magnesium, theobramine, iron and antioxidants. Oh yeah!
I shared about the health benefits of chocolate a little while ago so I won’t go into that today. But what I did want to write was that I have decided to share some of the chocolate love and run a giveaway!
I distribute Big Tree Farms cacao products in Jakarta because I use them in my Uncooking 101 classes and use cacao in my diet almost every day. I proudly support this brand as a local, Bali-based product that uses sustainable farming practices that help local farmers run their organic cacao farms. The cacao the farms all produce is manufactiured raw so that it retains all the nutrient goodness, and quite simply, tastes magnificent!
I have recently got my hands on their newly distributed Wonder Chocolate bars (the packaging for these bars makes me feel like one of the kids in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory who wins the gold wrapper prize!) and seriously, one bar of this stuff really just makes you want even more.
So I am giving away a bar of each of the 73% Wonder Chocolate varieties, as well as a canister of cacao beans (great for nibbling on for a cacao fix throughout the day!) and a canister of raw drinking chocolate (yep, that would mean healthy hot chocolates!).
The package is worth over Rp 300,000, and I am giving it away to one lucky winner! You do have to be a resident of Indonesia to enter- sorry folks from elsewhere.
To enter, just follow the instructions in this nifty widget below. Good luck and may the chocolate be with you!
a Rafflecopter giveaway
