Do I really need to say more than “chocolate” and “giveaway” in the same title to get your attention?

I didn’t think so.

But I do know of something that can make that sweet sound of chocolate ever better…Ghirardelli!  And if you are a milk chocolate fan, than this is the chocolate for you.

In 2009 (which makes me wonder how I went an entire year with out know about this) Ghirardelli introduced LUXE Milk Chocolate.  There are four flavors to tempt your sweet tooth, LUXE Milk, Almond, Hazelnut and Toffee.

•    LUXE MILK Almond – Toasted almonds contribute a clean, crisp taste to complement and enhance the flavors of the creamy-sweet milk chocolate base.
•    LUXE MILK Hazelnut – Lavished throughout this bar, all-natural deep-roasted hazelnuts add crunch and a distinctive, sophisticated flavor.
•    LUXE MILK – This bar delivers the ultimate premium milk chocolate experience – pure, all-natural milk chocolate with a velvety texture that melts smoothly in your mouth.
•    LUXE MILK Toffee – This all natural, rich and creamy milk chocolate made from the finest cocoa beans is perfectly matched with buttery, crunchy toffee bits.

I received four coupons in the mail so that I could try all four flavors and tell you about them.  I was so very disappointed when I got to my local Alberstons to find that they only carried the Almond and Hazelnut varieties.  Neither of these would be my first choice.  I am not typically a “nut in my chocolate” kinda gal.  But I figured since it was Ghirardelli Chocolate and I would sacrifice myself to the nut in the name of science…or product review.

I can tell you that even this non-nut girl loved these LUXE Milk Chocolates!  I scarfed two bags of chocolate *blush* in as many days.  I did find it in my heart to share a couple pieces with my mom and boys, but I’m ashamed to say that I ate most of them on my own (sorry, Bob.  I know I told you I shared, but I didn’t).

I loved and ate my chocolate so fast that I forgot to take a picture, and I love that it’s made with 100% natural ingredients!
