For the Love of Chocolate

For the Love of Chocolate

I can hardly contain my excitement as I write this... There has been so much chatter about dairy-free chocolate on the forum recently that we thought we would share the love even further and give away some vegan chocolate.

That's right – FREE CHOCOLATE!

In fact, we've all gone a little chocolate-mad with two new chocolate gift packs for sale in the Unleashed shop. And believe me, there's a good reason they call them 'Constant Craving' truffles. If you want to impress someone, I promise you, the only thing you'll ever need to do is get them some of these...

Each pack includes five dreamy varieties including Jaffa Delight, Coffee, Scorched Almond, Coconut, and Apricot Dream.

Ok ok ok, back to the free chocolate :-) If you want to get your hands on free pack of these melt-in-your-mouth truffles simply leave a comment below and tell us why you deserve them. We'll send the most worthy candidate a chock-filled gift to satiate those constant cravings...

Update: most worthy chocoholics announced! Click here to find out who won.

OMGGGGGGG I WANT THE JAFFA ONES!!

My local organic shop sells them!!! If anyone hasn't tried these you are seriously missing out!

Why should I win?
It would be nice to give something back to my Mum. She's been really, really nice to me about the vegan diet thing. She didn't judge or complain, just supported my decision and every now and then brings home the odd vegan slice of cake from the bakery happy

I deserve free choclates because I'm a bit down at the moment, My friends are acting strange towards me, and one of my pets died earlier this morning at approx. 10am.

I would really like these chocolates, they look so great! I need a pick-me-up and something to take my mind off things...

My name is, and I'm a chocoholic...

The hardest part I am finding going vegan i the lack of chocolate as I know it!
Last year when I was trying to wean myself off my choc-a-day habit (yes I was this bad... a cherry ripe a day!!) I was getting bad headaches, I think due to the sugar low...
I went on a health kick when I turned vegetarian at the start of the year, but I slipped a little (ok maybe a lot?), and went back to my habit. Since going vegan I am VERY tempted by ANY chocolate I see... I have to remind myself that I am VEGAN!!

I need help to stay on the vegan path.. and this should do it! It may also convince the b/f that non-dairy foods DO taste AWESOME! ecstatic

I do not have a very good reason for wanting the chocolate....except chocolate is amazing! therefore, I believe it should go to someone who will use it for a better reason than I would. But I just want to say I am enjoying myself so much with being a vegetarian....my family wasn't too happy at the start, especially my brother but I have been creating my own delicious dishes which my family "surprisingly" love! Woohoooooooooo

Matt that's so sweet. I'd like to say I'd give them to my mum but truthfully they wouldn't last 30 seconds around me.

Who knows, they might win in the hunt for the worlds best vegan chocolate that I have officially started.

(i.e. pick me!!!!)

Haha. I probably don't deserve them. But my sister does. She just spent 14 hours in labour and I think that in return for her giving me a new nephew, I should give her some lovely chocolates.

hey. ok so i tried to go on a 'no-chocolate-challenge' for a week one time last year... and boy was it a challenge! i lasted 5 days and was actually having withdrawal symptoms.

also, i'm always on the look out for tasty dairy free chocolate.
these truffles look like some good choc!

and now for the month of june, a friend challenged me to ban chocolate from my diet.

'chocolate ban' is such an oxymoron don't you think...

anyway, these truffles look like they'd be the perfect way to start eating chocolate again after a gruelling month of NO CHOCOLATE.

and that's why i think i deserve these truffles. happy

Please 'pick me, pick me'.  I would love my kids to try those chocolates.  I have been converting them to a vegan diet for a while now but they still believe that in order to taste good, food has to be made with meat or animals products

I've been going through the non-dairy chocolate options at all the supermarkets in the area and the taste has ranged from 'meh' to spit-outable. Yet my puppy loves the non-dairy dog treats I bought for her.
Please let me win so I don't have to resort to eating dog treats!!

why do i deserve them?
honestly, i dont think i do. what does one have to do to say they are DESERVING of chocolate? anyone on this beautiful planet of ours that wants chocolate is deserving of it.

id love to try them. and if i dont win free chocolate, i will certaintly go out on a mission and hunt to find these ones as i have never seen or heard of them before and yes, they do look amazing wink

OK, so I've never had them. Maybe I haven't been looking hard enough or I've only found vegan chocolates in bar form.
Chocolate,even before I turned vegan had alway been a bit of a tricky subject. I'm allergic to most nuts (except hazelnuts, cashews, almonds and the like) and avocado.
Adding on to that, my vegan anniversary is on June 5!

i'd like to share them with my family, its my dad's birthday today and they've been really good mostly about not giving me a hard time because i'm vegan, most nights now my parents prepare a family dinner,and a 'special' one for me,or on other ocasions they have tried my 'special' dinners and have embraced the change,  so i'd like to give something back.

I love chocolate, as do most people.
I'd like to win the chocolate because it would be a nice treat to have some vegan choc. Most of my friends think going vegan is stupid because they think that there's no other option but to give up sweets. This would prove to them that vegan sweets are excellent too! All the more reason to go veg! happy

I deserve these chocolates because I became a vegen despite all the complaints and "healthy eating" lectures I received from my family and friends. I stood up for what I believe in and ignored their hurtful comments happy Also because I am really craving chocolate because my boyfriend recently broke up with me, then hooked up with my so-called "friend"!

i dont know what to say that could prove that i am the worthy"est" of them all to win some free chocolate as i know everyone who writes here is obviously deserving of the chocolate because we all support such a fantastic cause.
so who ever wins congratulations but to everyone who doesnt just buy some chocolate and support this great site anyways happy

Honestly, I don't know why I would deserve chocolate more than anyone else on this site. Although exams are coming up, so it would be nice to have some guilt free choccies to ease the stress.
I can honestly say that for me one of the biggest challenges of being vegan would definately be the lack of chocolate. I've tried various soy type chocolates, but have not settled on one i really really love. so it would be nice to be able to try something new (and according to the other comments, delicious).
Would love to be considered, but congrats to everyone who does get it. happy
