Stocking Stuffer Week: Giveaway #2
1/3 lb. of Cowgirl Chocolates!!
I have been lucky enough to receive a box of Cowgirl Chocolates for review! Now these are some chocolates that you don't want to mess around with.
Here's the story behind Cowgirl Chocolates, I love this story, and this is taken directly from the Cowgirl Chocolates Website:
Head Cowgirl Marilyn Lysohir founded Cowgirl Chocolates in 1997. Her two favorite things in the world are art (she has a notable career as a ceramic sculptor) and chocolate. In fact her first job was working in a chocolate factory in Pennsylvania. Marilyn mingled some favorite memories with some new ideas to create an American original, Cowgirl Chocolates...chocolates with a spicy cowgirl kick. She was the pioneer, one of the first companies to offer spicy chocolates in the world.
Cowgirl Chocolates has won a total of 19 product awards and 2 packaging awards and is located in Moscow, Idaho USA. It has also been featured on the Food Network on “Unwrapped” and “Extreme Cuisine” and on CNBC “On the Money”. They have also been written up in the New York Times, InStyle, the Toronto Star among others.
I love how the chocolates came...wrapped up in a red box, tied with a black bow and a little cowboy boot charm....absolutely perfect!
The first chocolate I tried was the Spicy Raspberry Truffle, first you bite into tantalizing chocolate and reach a smooth raspberry filling, that in itself is most enjoyable, but then......you get a good kick in the throat, which makes it even more fun...and delicious and wanting more!
My husband tried a caramel, it kicked him and kicked him hard....I guess he's more of a mild kind of guy! Both of my kids tried the mild chocolates and loved them as well, but I'm sticking with the spicy!
I also tried the Double Chocolate spicy truffle....whoa, that really had a kick, I thought it was stronger than the raspberry but loved every minute of it! My son, bit into a spicy chocolate and was quite surprised by the spice....all in all we loved these chocolates and I'm sure someone will be finding these in their gift pile this holiday season!
