Chocolate Mint Day! (giveaway ends 2/22/13)


Chocolate Mint Day

It seems like every week I hear about a new “day” or “week” that celebrates something most people love. For example, there is National Pancake Day (2/5/13), National Spaghetti Day (1/4/13) and National Hot Dog Day (7/23/13). There are even days set aside for some rather peculiar things like Scurvy Awareness Day (5/2/13), National Dance Like a Chicken Day (5/14/13) and of course one of my personal favorites, Star Wars Day – May 4th (2013). Get it? May the 4th… may the force (be with you). That is a line from Star Wars.

Today is Chocolate Mint Day (Feb. 19, 2013 – no kidding – Google it :-)). So what a better way to celebrate than with a Chocolate Mint giveaway. Even a better, Chocolate Mint that is a better-for-you option too.

Our friends at Balance Bar has generously offered to give a lucky reader a box of Chocolate Mint Balance Bars (10 bars in the box).

I’ve tried the Chocolate Mint bars a while ago and I can tell you from my own experience they are really good. If you love chocolate mint you are going to love these bars!
