Valentine's Day Gifts - Cowgirl Chocolates Giveaway

I was recently lucky enough to not only receive a sampler of delicious Cowgirl Chocolates, but to also win a Cowgirl Chocolates giveaway on another blog.  

To my surprise, I had chocolate in my mailbox the very next day.  My Cowgirl Chocolates were mailed the same day of contact, both times.
Granted, I only live about 1 1/2 hours away from the Cowgirl Chocolates riding arena.  But the fact that they are so quick to package and ship their tasty chocolates is highly impressive.

The first thing I noticed about my chocolates was the cute packaging.  Each package was tied with a ribbon and included a little charm.

I'll admit that the packaging was so cute that I almost didn't want to open them.  In the end, the tempting Cowgirl Chocolates on the inside won the battle.

Cowgirl Chocolates will give your taste buds a kick!  They come in several mouth-watering flavors; including mild and spicy flavors. From truffles (what I got to sample) to caramels to candy bars to gift baskets!

Each chocolate truffle comes in a brightly colored wrapper, each color represents a unique flavor.  A few of the flavors I was lucky enough to taste were: spicy raspberry dark chocolate, spicy cappuccino, mild raspberry lemon and mild double dark chocolate.

They were all amazing delicious, even the spicy ones.  I'm not a "spicy" kind of girl, but I was pleasantly surprised by the spicy truffles.  A little bit of spice and the perfect amount of sweet!  It's a toss up, but I think the raspberry lemon was my favorite.



Cowgirl Chocolates has won a total of 19 product awards and 2 packaging awards and is located in Moscow, Idaho. They have also been featured on the Food Network on “Unwrapped” and “Extreme Cuisine” and on CNBC “On the Money”. They have also been written up in the New York Times, InStyle Magazine and the Toronto Star among several  others.




Cowgirl Chocolates happens to be located at the 1/2  way point  from my house to my parents house.  I told my husband and the head cowgirl, that next time we go to my parents house that we are going to have to stop by their retail store.  




WIN IT:

 ONE lucky Being Frugal and Making it Work reader is going to receive a 1/3 lb. Cowgirl Chocolates Valentine's Day Sampler ($12.95 value)

Mandatory Entry:

Visit Cowgirl Chocolates and tell me what boot kickin' flavor you would most like to try!



This giveaway will end at 11:59 pm EST on Tuesday February 1st

This giveaway is open to US residents only. The winner will be chosen using Random.org, with the winner will be notified by e-mail. Please make sure I have a way to contact you. You can leave your email, or link to your blog site. The winner will have 48 hours to respond, if there is no response another winner will be chosen.



**I received a Cowgirl Chocolates truffle sampler box for the purpose of an earlier review.  The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely my own.  Results may vary.  I was not compensated in any other way for this review.  The generous sponsor of this giveaway will mail the prize directly to the winner. 

A special thanks to Marilyn from Cowgirl Chocolates for this tasty review and giveaway opportunity!
