Chuao Giveaway!

I’ve got to spread my sweet wealth around. I’ve got $50 worth of gift cards for Chuao Chocolatier and I’d like to share them with my sweet readers.


All you have to do is leave a comment here with a working email address (don’t worry, no one else sees it but me) and I’ll do a random drawing from the entries (one per person please) on Tuesday, September 5th.

The winner will recieve two $25 gift cards for Chuao Chocolatier (my review here) that I can send anywhere in the world but their products can only be shipped in the US. You can visit one of their shops in person or use the gift cards to order online. $50 should get you a nice assortment. I highly recommend the Cambur (banana and caramel in milk chocolate).

I’ll accept entries until Monday, September 4th at 11:59 PM Pacific Time.

When leaving a comment, be sure to unclick the “notify me of follow-up comments” or else you’ll get an email every time someone enters ... which will clog up your email box and that’s no fun ... unless you want up-to-the-minute notification of your current odds of winning. 

UPDATE: I know that it looks like your recent comments (entries) are not showing up on the site. For some reason I never thought that I’d ever get more than 100 comments on any post, so the site doesn’t display them all. No worries! I get both an email and I have a record of all comments posted in the system - so rest assured you’re entered! I’m overwhelmed by all the kind (and funny) things everyone is saying and I’m so glad I can spread the chocolate wealth.

UPDATED UPDATE: The drawing is now closed, I’ll announce a winner late in the day.

  2. Not much point in me entering as I live in the UK but just thought I’d mention that September 5th is my birthday. Fantastic.

  40. hi cybele,
    thanks for keeping your loyal readers on their proverbial toes.  i saw a sarcastic little motto at the checkout of my fave little bookshop tonight:  “because chocolate can’t make you pregnant.”  good enough for me…. smile

    Comment by claudine on 8/28/06 at 4:29 pm #
  41. yay chocolate! I need me some free chocolate because I just started back at school and am broker than a really broke student.

  64. After reding your post on grapefruit Mentos I persuaded my Canadian boyfriend to scour the aisles of every corner drugstore in Vancouver.  About a month later I got 3 rolls of the tart buggers for our 3 year anniversary.

    Comment by cindy on 8/29/06 at 3:40 am #

  69. Wow—this blog is really hopping these days—I think it’s because you do such an amazing job with your write-ups

    Comment by Flickerfly on 8/29/06 at 3:55 am #
  70. Yes, please!!  Count me in!  And thank you so much for doing this!  I work about a block from the Irvine Spectrum so oh, how convenient it would be…

    I have visited Chuao and they (the chocolate and the employees) are great.  I also love Valentino Chocolates (at the Spectrum), but I have a feeling they’re on their way to closing down, sadly.  My Valentine candy for the last couple of years has come from there (after much blatant hinting).

    Comment by Lesley on 8/29/06 at 4:29 am #
  71. woo-hoo! Chocolate!

    Comment by Price on 8/29/06 at 4:30 am #

  77. mmmm banana caramel…let me win!

    Comment by dave on 8/29/06 at 5:25 am #
  78. The weekends are always a bit sad, because you do not post new reviews. But checking for new entries brightens my work day mornings!
    My first experience with Chuao was a sadly stale box of filled chocolate purchased at the Cal Academy of Arts Chocolate Exhibition. I’ve been wanting to get my hands on the fresh stuff ever since. My second experience was with the Chinita Nibs Bar w/ nutmeg, which finally got me off my rump and into the amateur world of chocolatiering. I’d make a trip to San Diego to visit their shop!
    Cybele, you and your blog rock!

    Comment by Kate on 8/29/06 at 5:29 am #
  79. I love reading your blog!

    Comment by Amie on 8/29/06 at 5:31 am #

  93. Here’s to you, Cybele, taster of sometimes frightening looking so-called “candies”.  If it weren’t for you, how would I know about Perugina with hazelnuts?

    Comment by Julilla on 8/29/06 at 8:17 am #

  112. You are truly evil for making the statement “A moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips” come true. I must admit, I’ve discovered tons of new candies…especially chocolates thanks to this blog. Thanks for weeding out the bad from the good and making those inches count!

    Comment by Tessa on 8/29/06 at 2:07 pm #
  113. Clearly you are awesome.

    Comment by Rebecca on 8/29/06 at 2:25 pm #
  114. I hope hope hope I win!!

    By the way, in re and old post, I found pink grapefruit mentos at a little liquor store just south of Hollywood Blvd on La Brea (west side).  I know you have a couple of cases but someone else in Los Angeles might be interested.

    Comment by Michelle on 8/29/06 at 3:02 pm #
  115. I’m a recent Candyblog addict. Best of luck with this superb site! Here’s hoping I’m the lucky winner!

    Comment by Jennifer Grappone on 8/29/06 at 3:39 pm #
  116. I love your site. I have been searching for Grapefruit mentos since I saw them here - sadly I haven’t found them yet & I’m in Canada.

    Comment by Knitty-kat on 8/29/06 at 3:47 pm #

  119. My roommate and I are both trying, so I’m hoping one of us wins. I can always sneak some of her chocolate…

    Comment by Lisa on 8/29/06 at 4:10 pm #
  120. The competition seems pretty stiff, but what the heck, I’ll do just about anything for a chance at some chocolate! Thanks for doing this!

    Comment by Raedia on 8/29/06 at 6:16 pm #
  125. I totally dig your site! Although Japanese and Korean treats have a lot of similarities, maybe you should check out Korean markets? They have some awesome stuff, like cinnamon hard candy (v. different from the American kind)or burnt rice candy (I love real burnt rice but the candy isn’t so much my thing… but some people really dig it).

    Comment by Christina on 8/29/06 at 6:35 pm #
  126. Thanks for the chance!

  131. Delicious chocolate…come to me.

    Comment by Adrien on 8/30/06 at 2:55 am #
  132. Hi Cybele,
    Since I have written you in the past about my chocolate addiction I cannot even fib & say I would love to win these so I can buy the grandkids some goodies. I would spend them & hide the proceeds. How selfish! Have a great day!

    Comment by Florence Colandro on 8/30/06 at 3:20 am #
  133. Great site!

    Comment by Michael on 8/30/06 at 4:48 am #
  134. Please add me too! Thanks for reviewing all this candy so that my tastebuds may vicariously through you! smile

    Comment by Rachel on 8/30/06 at 5:07 am #
  135. Wow, Cybele, having swooned at your initial description of “soft banana and brown sugar caramel - imagine a fried banana, drenched in caramelized sugar and then drizzled with chocolate”, I could not but join the frenzy. : )

    Comment by Diana on 8/30/06 at 6:17 am #

  139. My candy drawer is sad - it is almost empty and needs refilling.  The Trader Joes dark chocolate raisins are lonely and need some company.  Please send them some fellow chocolate friends.

  152. throwing my name in because i’m a poor (money wise), poor (pity me wise) first semster graduate student who needs chocolate to get through graduate stats with a professor whose first language is not english.

    of course you know i’d be just as happy with chili covered mexican candy.  smile

  200. Your website’s excellent!  Thanks again to David Lebovitz for publishing MORE great info.  I’m going through gestational diabetes right now (5 weeks to go before I can go back to NORMAL eating!) so reading about candy and desserts and regular food is the only way I can enjoy food (really) at the moment.  Loved the review on the lava bar.
