Sugar Buzz: Win Chocolate

beeSugar Buzz Red Alert: The sweet toothed Brits over at Chocablog are giving away Cadbury Dairy Milk bars. Fill out an online form to get Chocablog delivered to your inbox (sounds dirty, doesn't it) and tell them why you and you alone must have the ambrosial chocolate. They also say something about 1Kg equalling four 250g bars, but "it's all pounds, shillings, and pence to me."
I do know that although the picture below is not a Dairy Milk bar, they are quite yummy, and the kind they're giving away probably don't grow on convenience store trees.


In other Sugar Buzz news, Cybele's flickr photos are not only a great example of what food photos should look like, but damn y'all, she brought out the Peppermint Crunch Junior Mints. I haven't seen them in the stores yet, have you? She's also got a unique and informative candyblog entry on licorice―think I'll have a piece of Kookaburra in a mo'―and be still my beating heart (no, not really, waiting for that next lipid panel), she's introduced us to Sour Jujyfruits.
Now when I can't decide whether to sneak Sour Patch Kids, Dots, or Jujyfruits into the movie and the usher (no, not the Usher) looks like one of the children from Village of the Damned as did that creepy little bastard at American Gangster, I can condense my boxed contraband to Sour Jujyfruits.

my God, you forced me over to Chocablog where I spent almost half an hour scrolling through reviews on chocolate!!! (uhm...that's the lure of free chocoalte) and wondering if I'd like a strawberry-pepper bar.

I might.

Oh......I'm soooooooo heading over there! LOL!

PS. My friend has his own candy company and his candies are AMAZING! They've got Jones Soda candies, Warp Energy Mints, etc. Check them out at http://www.bigskybrands.com/

If you don't have them where you are, I can send you some :)

Hey Jodi, Chocablog is one of the best. Those Brits know their candy. Yeah, strawberry-pepper bar...I bet they made it sound intriguing.

Jeanna said...

Hey Chrissy, I will check them out. I did a review of Jones Soda candies and two of my youngest cousins snatched them up pronto. I kept one of the cans though. Very stylish. Thanks for the info.

Chuck Norris’s version of a “chocolate milkshake” is a raw porterhouse wrapped around ten Cadbury Dairy Milk bars, and doused in diesel fuel.

Jeanna said...

The reason the British have so much candy: Chuck Norris doesn't like candy.

Jeanna said...

Ha, Jimmy, that chocolate ice cream joke sounds like something my Aunt Flossie would tell.
How do you keep an ice cream cone from dripping? Have Chuck Norris tell it not to.

jodi said...

lol!!! I LOVE Chuck Norris jokes. :)

Jeanna said...

Then you should check out uncivil's Web site.

Ms. Mamma said...

You have an Aunt Flossie? KIck a$$!

Jeanna said...

I did, and she was the best. The only lady "the men" would let at the poker table. Smoked ceegars at weddings and such.

Uncivil said...

Jeanna, You and Aunt Flossie have me beat hands down on the Chuck Norris jokes!

Jeanna,

Thanks for the heads up on the spammer.

It's too late to read all this great stuff tonight. Since my blog is about travel, I don't talk about chocolate, but my brother and I have been selling chocolate for about a year now in the Pacific Northwest. I hope to start selling and distributing it in the Midwest in 2008. We have a line of eight panned chocolates.

Ciao,
Mark

Jeanna - wish you wouldn't mention chocolate - I go all weak at the knees.

Thanks for visiting my blog :)...You have one scrumptious blog here!!!

Wasn't taken in by that phoney....but thought no harm humouring him :D

Jeanna said...

Hey Jimmy, you've inspired me to replace my Your Mamma file with a Chuck Norris file.
Did you know Chuck Norris lost his virginity before his dad?

Jeanna said...

Hey Mark, tell me more about your chocolate. I envy all the traveling you do.

Jeanna said...

You and me both Lord James. Those Chocabloggers are killing me. And Cybele at Candy Blog puts the final sugary nails in my coffin.

Jeanna said...

I think I was at first Lostworld. Maybe that's why I'm so cheesed off. Hope you find something you like better than finance.
