Brookside Chocolate Tasting Kit Giveaway

I was recently contacted by Hershey’s and asked if I wanted to try their new Brookside Chocolate–real fruit juice pieces dipped in dark chocolate. I’m normally not a huge fruit and chocolate fan; I’m that annoying person that bites into every piece of chocolate in those holiday assortments then throws away the other half when it’s fruit filled, but I was pleasantly surprised!

The fruit pieces are chewy and remind me of fruit snacks that I ate as a kid, and the chocolate is rich and has the right amount to complement the fruit without overpowering it. They currently offer three flavors: dark chocolate acai with blueberry, dark chocolate pomegranate, and dark chocolate goji with raspberry (my favorite).

Brookside Tasting Kit Giveaway

Brookside sent me all three flavors (I shared the acai blueberry before I had time to snap a picture) as well as a headband, stemless wine glasses, a candy dish, a cheese board, a cheese knife, (all from Crate & Barrel!) and an AMEX gift card (cheese, crackers, and wine anyone?) so I can relax and indulge with friends.

And because Brookside is so awesome, one of you will win the same tasting kit! Leave a comment below letting us know what flavor you are most excited to try.

For more information about Brookside, visit them on Facebook and Twitter.

Brookside provided me with a tasting kit and will ship a second kit directly to a winner. Giveaway ends at 11:59 p.m. EST on Sunday, January 27, 2013. One winner will be selected at random shortly thereafter and contacted by email. Please note this giveaway is only open to residents of the U.S.

    I would love to try the pomegranate. I had the blueberry one and it was amazing. They didn’t have the raspberry in my store, so I’d love to try that one too.

    love the pomegranate ones i have been buying them for a while ๐Ÿ™‚

    Angela on 54 February 9th, 2013 9:46 am

    I love both I always by the Blueberry and Pomegranate snack packs but only when I go back to Pennsyvania. BJ’s is the only place I can find them. I buy the bag of Pomegranate because its the type I can buy here in NC. I just found the Raspberry online and I bought 2 bags online. Can’t wait to try them. I really love both blueberry and pomegranate can’t really say I like one over the other. I will be back to give a comment on the raspberry once it arrives.
