My newsletter readers knew this giveaway was coming and yes, it is time! Twenty dollars worth of Green & Black’s Easter products is up for grabs! This chocolate is famous and right now they have a lineup of chocolate eggs just in time for Easter. Green & Black’s gracious donated this prize to my blog bday giveaway to a lucky winner!
Made with organic, ethically sourced ingredients you can get dark 70% chocolate, milk chocolate and mini eggs that come in milk chocolate, dark chocolate and butterscotch! Yum!
I was so excited when this fair trade chocolate showed up at my door. I had heard about it like it was some mythical foodie treasure and now I was finally going to try it. I was sent the milk chocolate eggs which was perfect! I actually adore milk chocolate.
The whole peeling the Easter egg experience was so much like when I was a kid except when I tasted it, OMG, so much better! These have a soft milk chocolate center so instead of breaking your teeth biting it apart, this chocolate egg is soft and dreamy. Instead of cheap powdery and hard chocolate of my childhood I had to hold myself back from eating the entire box in one sitting. I love it when you can taste quality and feel good about eating it.

I am usually a fan of dark chocolate. And I usually try not to buy too much chocolate because I know it will disappear very quickly. 😀
I can’t begin to tell you how much I love chocolate, especially dark chocolate. It’s definitely a bonus if it comes with peanut butter! Chocolate is my downfall, but learning it is totally ok to have as a treat once in awhile and in moderation. Easter and Christmas are dangerous around my house as far as chocolate goes! lol
I remember as a kid, I was more excited about Easter than Christmas. I’d wake up at like 5 in the morning everyday a week before Easter and look for hidden chocolate eggs before anyone else would get up!! How disappointing when I would find those gaudy colored marshmallow type eggs that no one likes instead of chocolate ones.
Happy Easter Suzie!!
Mmm chocolate giveaway! I love decadent dark chocolate. Delish! Such a great treat 🙂 Happy Easter!
chocolate should be a food group..but it has to be good quality chocolate. it makes such a difference.

I am a huge fan of chocolate and like it all (with a slight preference for rich, dark chocolate).
I remember one Easter when the girls were younger when we decided to hide all the eggs in the living room and kitchen. I had thought they’d found them all. A few weeks later I wanted popcorn, so I pulled out the air popper, filled it with kernels and let it go. I was greeted with a bowl of popcorn that also contained chocolate ….. and bits of colored foil. It didn’t do much for the popcorn maker either!
Chocolate…every girl’s best frined. Hope this one is mine!!!!

mmmmm….Chocolate! I was always a lover of milk chocolate, but now I prefer dark chocolate. Last year at a trade show I was introduced to my new love…Sea Salt & Dark Chocolate! Best ever!
We always have an easter egg hunt for the kids in the woods, one year I had gone up and hid all the treat and when we went back to look for them, the squirrels had ate a lot of the chocolates! The kids thought it was funny, so all was not lost.

I’m throwing my bunny ears in the ring! When I was a kid, I hated dark chocolate. But now I quite like it. My taste buds had to mature, I guess. Don’t get me wrong though. I still adore milk chocolate too!
I love chocolate of all kinds; I do love creamy, milky milk chocolate, but I also love the bite of a darker chocolate, and the better the quality, the more I love the chocolate.
I think my favourite has to be caramel or butterscotch with chocolate. There’s a richness to the combination, done well, that’s hard to beat.
When my cousins were little, there would be an easter hunt at the house and the three of us would find jelly beans, chocolate eggs, and other small treats in various locations around the house. I’m older than they are, so I often found more caches than they did, but I shared so I didn’t hog them all. (I confess I don’t remember whether my sharing had to be coached or not! 🙂 )

Hi Suzie ~ I like a darker chocolate, mostly because of the health benefits. If I have a special treat I get some with almonds 🙂 Chocolate to me means ~ it’s a special way to give myself a gift – – it’s something I don’t eat all the time, so when I do I appreciate it. A funny story I recall about hunting for Easter eggs is when I was a little girl – my twin sister and I were so excited to find as many as we could one Easter and my Mom told us later that like a twin, she heard us both say when I’m done I will share with – the other twin – LOL – Mom said we were both racing to get the most collected, but still planned to equally share them when we we done! We still do that now and we’re 45! Great Contest – Mmmmm! 😀

Hee hee, looks like we all adore chocolate! Lovely giveaway Suzie. I like it all!
I do not like real eggs at all and haven’t eaten one since my mother stopped forcing me as a child but I really do love chocolate eggs and would eat them all the time if I could!!!!
Foodie Frannie says
Chocolate is a very important food group. I’ve loved Green & Blacks for years and when I splurge it’s usually with their product. The kids would be thrilled to get Green & Blacks eggs for Easter… if I can stop myself from eating them all as I’m hiding them. lol
I love chocolate!!! I have never had Green and Black’s, but you make it sound fantastic!! I passed on my love to my children. When my middle son was 3 he snuck out of bed early one Easter morning. Much to his delight, he found a big, creamy chocolate egg outside his bedroom door. Unlike most children he didn’t gobble it up. He went back to bed and fell asleep…on top of the egg. He was newly potty trained and you can just imagine my husbands horror when he went to get him out of bed on Easter morning and he was covered in a poop like substance. He ran out of there pretty fast!
I loves me some chocolate!! I would eat it every day if I could but instead I treat it as a reward. Because it’s a reward I only buy high quality chocolate and it’s sooo much better!! Easter is definately my favorite time of year and now I enjoy doing the easter egg hunt with my son…Not sure who has more fun though:)

My parents used to buy my brother and I those hollow, foil wrapped eggs from the Italian bakery. I guess we had so much pent up energy trying to be good all through Lent that we would let loose on Easter Sunday and crack our chocolate eggs over each other’s heads. Lucky, they were light enough and no harm was done. I never really cared much for that particular chocolate but there was always the little coveted prize inside that would make it all worth it.
Thanks or the giveaway, these chocolates sound like something we would all really enjoy!
You gotta love chocolate – my 1st choice would be dark, but I won’t turn down milk if it’s staring me in the face! I first “met” Green & Blacks several years ago in London, before it was even available in Canada, it is excellent!
Oh, I did forget to mention that on a recent trip to Costco I broke down and bought a box of mini Lindt chocolate bunnies… >_<
While I sure love chocolate, I have found my husband to have the biggest sweet tooth ever especially for chocolate treats!! So if I won, he would be super excited for his new treats 🙂
I love dark and milk chocolate also. Yum! Last year my husband left a small chocolate on the computer desk for me. When we returned to the room a few minutes later we found our mischievious pet bunny had managed to hop his way onto the desk and was helping himself to the chocolate. He’s ok but these days we make sure not to leave any chocolate laying around.

Oooooh! I LOVE chocolate! I’m eating a piece of Lindt Intense Mint chocolate right now! It’s delicious!
Lucy Ladham-Dyment says
Love Dark chocolate the best. But also love ones with orange, caramel or mint in them. I only buy the real chocolate – nothing called chocolate flavoured or chooclate candy…. Although the Orange Smarties from Scotland – taste like real orange… but Canadian orange coloured Smarites – do not.

LOVE Green & Black’s mini Eggs, but I have to say my fave will always be Cadbury Mini Eggs for Easter. I kinda hate that they’re avail year round now.
Hi Suzie, what a wonderful giveaway! I’m definitely in for this one!
What is chocolate to me? It depends, a nice rich dark chocolate (such as G&B) is a moment of escape, a good milk chocolate is like a memory of my childhood, and some of the fun flavor combos (like Espresso, or dark chocolate and chili) are a chance to experience something unexpected.
And to whoever the lucky winner is, enjoy the chocolate!
Yummmm chocolate!! My favourite is definitely Milk chocolate. I traveled to Europe a couple of years ago and half my suitcase coming back was filled with chocolate and other goodies.
chocolate… droooll…. my favourite kind of chocolate is dark, with almonds/cranberries or anything crunchy. I love easter egg hunts, but i have a fear of not finding all of them- i don’t want to leave any for mice, a couple of years ago, i found a chocolate egg in the basement from a hung loooon ago :S chocolate is such a comfort food to me, but i have to work really hard to only have one piece :p
have a funny story about chocolate eggs and blindfolds.
for some odd reason we were blindfolded and sent out into the back yard to look for ‘chocolate’ eggs….well one of my sisters was especially good at finding ‘chocolate’ eggs, only the puppy had left them behind not the easter bunny.
that happened many many years ago, and i still laugh at the memory of my sis squishing the egg har har har
thanks for the chance to win a real chocolate treat! i will be sure to share with sister if i win!
Was great reading all those comments ! I love chocolate mmmm.
