Win some chocolate from createmychocolate.com!

Confession! I love chocolate more than any other flavor in the world. My complexion and the ever-growing tire around my mid-section wouldn't agree, but I can't help myself. I love chocolate the way some people love coffee (and I use the caffeine in chocolate for the same purpose). I love chocolate the way some people love cats, vacations or Justin Bieber.

So you can imagine my delight upon discovering a Web site that lets me design my very own chocolate bars. Chocri, a German-based company, has a site called createmychocolate.com that is a huge time-suck for a chocoholic like me. You start by picking your chocolate: white. milk, dark or a white/milk combo (I ordered 5 bars and they were all dark because that's the only chocolate in my book). Then you get a gazillion mix-ins to pick from. You name it, they have it--everything from bacon to spelt flakes and all the usual stuff in between.

Because the bars get shipped from Germany, there's a two-bar minimum, but, hey, once you taste this stuff, you're going to wish the minimum was more like 10 bars. Mine got accidentally sent to Canada before finally arriving in California (a common mistake for a German-speaker, I'm sure ;-) But, ohhh was it worth the wait. I've been in chocolate heaven ever since.

And because we love our readers sooo much, we're going to give away two bars to two lucky, random winners today. All you have to do to win is tell us your favorite (chocolate) nugget of information learned from this awesome Death By Chocolate post from our own Allison Keene. So go read the post, then come back and leave a comment below. At midnight tonight, we'll randomly pluck two winners from the pool.
