We're all Winners: Vianne Chocolat & the Svelte

Before I announce the winner of my Svelte Giveaway, I have to share something I won, because I'm self-absorbed like that. (really, I swear I'm not!) We'll just say it's an unexpected blog birthday present!
Fates aligned and I was the lucky recipient of a giveaway from Vianne Chocolat, a new chocolatier in Boston. The gracious owner and founder Valerie Conyngham offered to send me dairy-free pieces, specifically solid dark chocolate squares with sea salt, brandy cherries and a pug bar.
dark chocolate pugs. really can you get any cuter?
brandy. cherries. dark chocolate
sea salt pairs perfectly with dark chocolate.
Looking at the other chocolate offered, I am obsessed with all the innovative flavors Valerie has created! For example, Green Fairies made with absinthe, Violets made with Creme de Violette liquor, raspberry rhubarb turffles, Peanut butter hives with a kick (PB + Chocolate + Cayenne pepper sounds like a dream right?) and burnt caramel (burnt caramel with dark chocolate and alaea sea salt). MMMM! Plus she's a local, small-business, and go-getting women entrepreneur-how could you not love it! Head on over to Vianne Chocolat Website

But I'm not the only winner, Drum Roll please for the winners of my Svelte Giveaway!

The First winner of grand prize of 1 case (12 Sveltes)- is Amanda Milad

The 2 runners will each be receiving 1 “prize pack” of one of each flavor is @Deshane and @vegitateforlife

Email your mailing address to ejarrard (at) and I'll get these packages headed your way!

Thank you to Vianne Chocolate and the Svelte and CalNaturale team for hosting this giveaway!

Disclaimer: I was not paid by Svelte or Vianne Chocolat to promote their product. I'm all about giving the companies I love the attention they deserve and don't need to be bribed.
