Green & Black’s Organic Chocolate Giveaway 3 Winners!

Green & Black Chocolate Green & Black is a brand new name to me when it comes to chocolates. Who knew I was missing something so scrumptious?!


I was sent 3 different varieties to try:


IMG_4208Milk Chocolate


Milk Chocolate with Peanuts


Dark ChocolateIMG_4209


Green & Black’s is the only global organic and Fair Trade Certified Chocolate brand. To receive the distinction of Fair Trade Certification, companies must commit to establishing fair pricing labor conditions; engage in direct trade; work only with democratic and transparent organizations; and support community development and environmental sustainability.

From the cocoa beans to the roasted almonds, Green & Black’s believes that using high-quality fair trade, organic ingredients results in a better and more intensely flavored chocolate experience. Today, you can enjoy 13 different bars, hot chocolate, and baking chocolate and have the assurance that you’re making a responsible purchase – for the earth, for you, and for the farming communities that helped make this product possible.

Additional information about Fair Trade USA can be found by visiting http://www.transfairusa.org/.


Do you ever get something and you want to hide it from someone? Like your kids? Too bad I opened the package up with my boys around. There was no way I was going to get to do this review on my own. Dang!


dark-70-b The Dark 70% was waaaay to Dark for us. I’m not even a “light” Dark chocolate eater! LOL My mom and dad on the other hand…they’d eat this candy in one sitting. Not for me, or the boys, but it’s going into my parents stockings for Christmas.


milk Next came the Milk Chocolate. Hello and come to mama. I let the boys have a sample, a square, cause that’s the kind of nice mom I am. They loved it! So did I. Oh my goodness, that was some good chocolate. Who knew Milk Chocolate could be so good?


GB-US-sml_bar_peanut Finally I tried the Milk Chocolate with Peanuts. Such a shame that my boys don’t like peanuts. I ate the entire thing. Shameless I know, but I couldn’t help myself. This was seriously good chocolate!


I’m holding out for Milk Chocolate with Caramel. Ooooo my girls would love that, too! Hint, Hint Green & Black’s.


When you visit Green & Black’s website and check out their bars, one thing you’ll notice when you hover your mouse over the bars is the intensity of the cocoa. It’ll give you a good idea of which one might fit your taste buds!


3 people have the chance to win 2 bars each! Can you taste the chocolate already?


Required: Visit Green & Black’s and tell me which other flavor (not listed) that you’d like to try. Make sure to click the arrow to see all the choices!


Giveaway open to US Continental Residents 18 yrs or older. Please leave your email in the required entry or have it available in your profile. No email/contact = No entry. Giveaway ends 12/15 11:59 PST. Winner has 48 hours to respond.
