Ghirardelli Chocolate Squares Review and Giveaway~Closed~

This contest is now closed!

1 Winner, Ends 4/15 @ 10pm EST!



It's no secret that I love chocolate and caramel or chocolate and peanut butter or, okay I could go on and on! Some of my favorite chocolate is the Ghirardelli Squares! Yummy :)

Imagine how excited I was when I received a package from Ghirardelli! I could hardly contain myself as I ripped open the box. I started digging through the box, getting more and more excited everytime I found something new! There was Milk & Caramel bars, a bag of Ghirardelli Classic Squares, which includes Dark & Mint, Milk & Caramel and Milk & Peanut Butter, and a bag of Dark Squares, which includes Dark & Raspberry, Dark & Caramel and Dark 60% Cacao!

Now I had a dilema on my hands! Do I hide it and make it last longer or do I share with my hubby and kids? Decisions, decisions! Well, I decided to share with my family because I am just a nice person. ;)

I had to break into the Milk & Caramel first! This is my favorite of all their products! It is creamy, smooth and very rich. The nice thing is that a little goes a long ways, so you don't find yourself eating too much of it, well at least all at once! I shared our bag of Classic Squares with my sister-n-law and her hubby. They were very happy and all agreed that Ghirardelli makes the best Chocolate! The members of my house were very sad when all the yummy Ghirardelli Chocolates were gone. I will have to pick some up the next time I am at the store.

Luckily for me and you there is a coupon available for $1.00 off any 2 bags of Ghirardelli Squares Chocolates! CLICK HERE to print yours. You can check out what other flavors they offer too. You will want to try all 6 flavors!

  88. I am a dark chocolate gal, so the dark and caramel sounds good, but the mint would probably be my favorite. The dark and raspberry sounds good too. Frankly, if it is chocolate I would eat it, I LOVE chocolate.
