What’s better than chocolate? Free, organic chocolate.

Chocolate © by Chocolate Reviews

My friend Linda B.’s doctor has advised her to eat an ounce of dark chocolate daily. I wish I could get a prescription like that.

Whoever wins this week’s giveaway will be a healthier person because the prize is a trio of organic, fair-trade chocolate bars made right here in Seattle.

The goodies are from Theo Chocolate, a company hat received the “Fair for Life” label by “certifying our entire supply chain from the farmers through to Theo’s business practices and factory.”

The company sources locally whenever possible (obviously, the cocoa beans comes from somewhere else) and uses green energy sources and sustainable packaging and printing techniques.

Here’s what this week’s winner will receive:

  • Ultimate Dark Chocolate (85% cacao)
  • Mint Dark Chocolate (70% cacao)
  • Spicy Chile Dark Chocolate (70% cacao)

Each bar weighs 3 ounces. And according to the label the contents are not only “rich in cocoa polyphenols” but also “suitable for vegans.” That means they’re super-healthy, right?

For your shot at the trio of Theo:

If you do any (or all!) of these things, please leave separate, additional comments to get credit for each entry.

The deadline is 9 p.m. PST Tuesday, April 3. If I don’t hear back from the winner by Thursday morning,  April 5, I’ll pull another name.

    Chocolate cures everything. Just ask my friend who works for the Mars company. They are the happiest damn bunch of people you could ever meet.

    I’ll take OTC chocolate over the prescription stuff any day.

  69. Thanks for the heads up about Theo’s. I enjoy & encourage supporting local! Looking forward to helping our local economies be more sustainable.

  70. I love chocolate, but that pretty much only applies to *dark chocolate.* When I’m super duper stressed, I may eat something like M&Ms, but otherwise I’ve been known to turn down chocolate when offered if it isn’t dark chocolate. I really don’t like milk chocolate; it’s too sweet and watered down tasting for me.

  71. I subscribe to an RSS feed and Facebook.

  72. I also subscribe via Twitter. I think I’ve got you covered, Donna!

  78. I actually enjoy eating just one ounce of very good chocolate every day. Best if you’re not multitasking – just concentrate on the sensations of eating the chocolate, smelling the aroma, etc.

  79. Ooooh – chocolate! Yes, yes and yes!

  107. Theo is my favorite chocolate! It’s funny, because I just blogged about the misconception that vegan automatically denotes healthiness… chocolate on the other hand has been shown to be quite healthy!

  108. Elizabeth

    Yum! Sounds like just what the doctor ordered.

  110. I have become a real fan of your work, Donna ,and not just because I want to win the chocolate! I appreciate your argument that frugality and wise financial management are not ends in themselves, but ways to make sure that anyone can live the best life possible. I have always felt that way, so I have always lived a frugal life–for which I have taken a very great deal of ribbing from friends. What a relief to discover that others look at the world in the same way. Thanks.

    Hi Donna! Dark chocolate is the best. Love your writing and especially respond to seeing you strive for the best outcome despite what you see as your shortcomings. Maybe your blog title could be, Surviving, Striving and Thriving . . .

    Leave a comment… Sometimes I wonder what happens to all the comments that are, instead, kept. Considering what secrets are spilled in comments all over the Internet, one can only wonder what deep dark skeletons are hidden within tightly-kept comments.

    Eating a really nice bar of dark chocolate (or three) that I was fortunate enough to get for free? That would make for a great evening. Thanks for the opportunity!

  146. factchecker

    Dark chocolate is good for you, I hear, but I really don’t think that
    organic makes a huge difference, getting back to organic food, some
    of it doesn’t make sense and is not sustainable,aka milk, and there is not enough supply to meet demand.
