Day 3 of giveaways is officially over and a winner has been chosen! Thanks for all the great comments and lovely ideas on how to use honey. I’m definitely going to be trying them out. The winner for Day 3 is Julie!

Welcome to Day 11 of the 12 days of giveaways! If you haven’t already entered, there’s still some time to enter Day 4, Day 5, Day 6, Day 7, Day 8, Day 9 and Day 10.

On the eleventh day of giveaways, Kirbie’s Cravings gave to me…

Chuao Chocolatier Sampler!

(and for purposes of completing the song, sung to the tune of the 12 days of Christmas, here are the rest of the giveaways)

One lucky reader will receive a sampler of Chuao Chocolatier’s premium chocolate bars. If you are a local San Diegan, Chuao needs no introduction. But even if you aren’t, you may have heard of Chuao because their chocolate is available nationwide in many retail stores and online, and they have gotten coverage from Food Network, Rachel Ray and Dr. Phil, just to name a few.

Chuao Chocolatier (pronounced chew-WOW) is the first Venezuelan Chocolatier based in the United States. It is known for making premium, artisan chocolate that is infused with unusual flavor combinations. For example, they offer a Firecracker chocolate bar which is a chipotle caramel fudge truffle with popping candy, a hint of salt, and dark chocolate. If you are lucky enough to live near one of the cafes in San Diego, you can experience their rich hot chocolate, which comes in flavors like Spicy Maya, a dark hot chocolate mixed with pasilla chile, cayenne pepper and cinnamon. (All these products are available online as well.)

I am always searching for and tasting gourmet chocolate and Chuao is  my favorite place in San Diego when I want to indulge on some luxurious chocolate. I was so excited when Chuao agreed to participate in my giveaway.

The sampler includes four full chocolate bars in the following flavors: firecracker, panko, spicy maya and honeycomb.

One lucky winner will be chosen randomly using a number generated by random.org. Contest ends December 22, 2010 at midnight PST. Please note, this contest is open to US readers only. To enter, leave a comment at the end of this post, telling me which flavor you are most interested in trying. (You can visit their website to get a description of the different bars.)

For an additional entry, follow me on twitter (if you don’t already) and tweet the following message:

Good luck!
