This post is brought to you by Ghirardelli Intense Chocolate.
As if anyone needed an excuse to eat more chocolate, Ghirardelli is running a contest, and the grand prize is dark chocolate for a year. Yes, a year! The Bring Your Dark to Light contest will determine the next flavor in Ghirardelli's Intense Dark chocolate line and your vote can help decide it!
Thousands of people submitted their dark chocolate creations using no more than three ingredients like fruits and nuts, and then the entries were narrowed down by a panel of expert culinary judges, among them Bon Appétit chef Jonathan Lindenauer, award-winning cookbook author Alice Medrich, and Ghirardelli's head chocolate maker, Kevin Tamaki. The judges selected the top five flavors based on creativity, appeal, and manufacturability. That last one is important because Ghirardelli will produce the winning flavor and add it to their Intense Dark lineup in 2011.
Now it's up to you to select which of the top five flavors you find most tempting: Tahitian Treasure, Spicy Pecan, Moonlight Fantasy, Cherry Bliss, or Hazelnut Heaven.
Think you know chocolate? Show it with your votes. You can vote once a day, every day, and each vote is an entry into the contest. You'll be eligible to win Intense Dark chocolate bars, gift baskets, and that year's supply of dark chocolate.
What are you waiting for? Head over to the Ghirardelli site now and vote for the next Intense Dark chocolate flavor!
