Chocolate Giveaway: Week #3

What better way to thank the Mayans for giving the world chocolate than a selection of Godiva? I will also be giving away a signed copy of Jungle Crossing and a bobble-head turtle!


Chocolate Tidbit: When Christopher Columbus's son Ferdinand came across a Mayan trading canoe on August 2, 1502, he couldn't understand why the natives scrambled after what looked like a bunch of spilled almonds. He didn't recognize cocoa beans--and he had no idea how valuable they were! Or how yummy they tasted.

To enter this week's contest, please leave a chocolate-related comment at: www.mybignose.blogspot.com. Good luck!

  1. it's my dog's birthday but I can't celebrate it too much with chocolate because she's a dog...maybe after she goes to bed? (that's chocolate related, right?)

  7. There's a Purdy's Chocolate factory by my house and I go there to get chocolate so I've never tried Godiva chocolate before.

  8. Amy and Emily, I wish I lived close enough to share the curry chocolate with you. I'm looking forward to trying it, but I mentioned it to my family and they all turned up their noses.
