Keep it Real Raffle Winner

image I’m happy to report that Julie at Booga J (and her own Chocolate Blog) won the Keep it Real Raffle. A $100 gift certificate from is already on its way to her.

It might console you to know that she’ll probably be virtually sharing her booty in the near future on her blog. In case you forget to bookmark her, I’m adding her to my blogroll over there on the lower right.

Julie worked really hard too, with five raffle tickets (there were about 130 entries total) ... though the “ticket” I drew for her was for her comment to the FDA.

In the next week or so I’ll announce some more giveaways. Thanks again to everyone for their help in getting the word out.

    George - Hershey’s is still made in the US and they’re only moving some of their production to Mexico. The way to keep chocolate in the US is to continue buying the Hershey’s products that say Made in USA on them (send a message to the company).

    Other American chocolate companies: Mars, some Nestle (check the wrapper, some are made in Brazil),  but really there aren’t that many chocolate companies here at all.

    Check out this website to find more about “Big Chocolate” - that’s the Chocolate Manufacturers Association.
