By , SparkPeople Blogger
The winner is... TERRY155!!! Editor's Note: The dailySpark hosts weekly "Welcome to the Weekend" giveaways! Each Friday night visit to enter to win great prizes that make healthy living a little easier--and a lot more fun. Every contest will be open for one week, so return every Friday night to enter a new one and see who won (I choose the winners earlier in the day on Friday)! We hope these contests (and the time you spend on the dailySpark and SparkPeople) get your weekends off to a healthy start!

This week we're giving away a gift box of chocolate from Equal Exchange. (I promise that this is the last "treat" giveaway for awhile. Next week's giveaway is fitness-themed!)

We say:

Um, it's chocolate. What's not to love? It's dark, so it's "good" for you, and it's a delicious treat.

They say:

"Here's the bar to satisfy both your sweet and salty cravings. Crunchy caramel bits serve as the perfect complement to mouthwatering sea salt crystals. They work together to bring out the complex flavors of the smooth, fruity chocolate. This unique dark chocolate bar is sure to be a favorite. Made with cacao from co-operatives in the Dominican Republic and Peru, and with fairly traded organic sugar from farmer co-operatives in Paraguay. Soy- and gluten-free."

"This chocolaty, silky origin bar is reminiscent of baked brownies fresh out of the pan. Highlighting the work of cacao farmers in Ecuador, the bar's sweet, fudgy richness is balanced by hints of citrus and floral notes. With its clean, refreshing aftertaste, this dark chocolate bar will leave you wanting more. Made with chocolate liquor from Fortaleza del Valle co-operative in Ecuador, cocoa butter from co-ops in the Dominican Republic, and fairly traded organic sugar from farmer co-operatives in Paraguay. Vegan and soy- and gluten-free."

What is your favorite chocolate combination? No combo is too strange. Mine is rosemary and sea salt, with toasted almonds. Swoon!

and what is better than chocolate? What ever it is,it hasn't been invented yet! Sorry I missed out on this one! Report
CIRANDELLA wonderful! I'd be thrilled to have chocolate from the Dominican Republic - what a wonderful paradise! Report
Not only am I a chocolate lover but I am also a lover of Equal Exchange. Their fair trade products have both quality and great flavor. My favorite is actually the mini dark chocolate bar. It is perfect size and is great with a cup of fair trade coffee. Report
I love chocolate! Report
Thanks, SP! Some really wonderful chocolate in that box! I tried the hazelnut blend immediately, then kept a couple of the dark chocolates to enjoy over time, and shared the others with my family. Really good stuff here. Report
I'm afraid I get out of control when I have chocolate around. I have been known to sit and eat the entire box, bar or bag. For this reason I avoid buying and have asked hubby not to give me chocolates for birthday or Valentines. However this Valentines I did receive the most scrumptous bag of Lendor dark and mixed chocolate truffles. I owe it to SparkPeople that I did not devour but instead had no more than 3 a day. Report
i love the chocolate and pepper Report
chocolate and orange! Report
Dark Chocolate covered raspberries! Report
EE is one of my favorite chocolates!

Dark...Organic...Fair Trade
My other fave is Theo Report
I enjoy dark chocolate with chiles. The spicy kick keeps me from overdoing it. For a real splurge, it is great paired with popcorn. Report
I like dark chocolate, almonds, and raisins mixed together. Report
I buy my dark chocolate at Wallgreens (watch for sales on the 75% Dark or higher) and I love dark chocolate and coconut... Report
Dark Chocolate! By itself is my favorite, but I also like it with peanut butter, cranberries, almonds, coffee, orange, mint, etc. (Not all at the same time!) I like most combinations for something different once in a while and probably my favorite combination is dark chocolate with cranberries. I don't like the raspberry added--but I don't care for raspberry flavored anything. Report
This is the chocolate I buy most often. Mmm!!! Report
Chocolate covered strawberries are definitely my favorite combo! Report
Chocolate is divine! Report
dark chocolate, raspberry, and caramel! Report
LOVE chocolate! Some of my favs are white chocolate and peanut butter; dark chocolate with caramel and pecans, and dried apricots coated with dark chocolate. YUM! Report
dark chocolate with caramel or orange Report
dark chocolate plain or with caramel or almonds. yum! Report
Most any nut and chocolate makes my world a better place Report
chocolate covered raisins Report
Chocolate in any form is good.
i love dark chocolate with lavender and blueberries Report
Chocolate and nuts - almonds, peanuts, hazelnuts - all good! Report
I love the combo of dark chocolate & coconut...YUMMmmmmmm!!!! Report
Dark chocolate covered nuts are my fave! Report
Most times, just plain chocolate works for me, though I don't mind if it has nuts. Report
I love chocolate in any way, shape, or form. Once I had a dark chocolate bar that had cracked black pepper in it. That's probably the strangest combination I've ever tried, and it was actually pretty good! Report
I've never come across a combination that I didn't like. There are just too many wonderful combinations for me to pick just one. I love raspberry and dark chocolate, peanut butter and milk chocolate, chocolate covered almonds or cashews, dark chocolate with chilies. Report
Dark chocolate Gluten free sounds great for me!!! Report
a good chocolate doesn't need anything!! (but chocolate with salted caramel or chili pepper is my current faves!) Report
Dark Chocolate and Spicy Chiles followed by Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt Report
chocolate and peanutbutter is always a winner with me.

Chocolate and pretzels - but surprisingly not the pretzel m&ms Report
Hard to choose! I only eat dark chocolate (I love cocoa nibs the best - no sugar, just roasted flavor goodness!) and only occasionally.

Nuts, caramel, sea salt, basil, raspberry, espresso, toffee, and spicy chiles - any of these are delish! Report
Peanut butter and chocolate is my favorite... and you can add marshmallow sauce if you really want to be decadent... but I think this combo is probably one I should not revisit for a very long time if I know what is good for me... maybe for a SUMMER sundae if I achieve my goals for between now and June :-) Report
Dark chocolate with sea salt... Wow! so yummy. However, for a back up, Dark chocolate and blood orange. Also really good. :) Report
I was just doing one of the quiz ...dealies..:) and it said that dark chocolate helps with brain functioning Report
I had to laugh when someone bothered to write that they don't like chocolate, amusing to me to bother to write that down, is all. We have the 85% cocoa very dark chocolate in the house at all times, important stuff. One of the last "vices", I suppose, left to we regular folks who are not celebs. Report
I love chocolate! I try to keep a dark chocolate bar in the house at all times. One piece a day is enough for me, and sometimes I *REALLY* need that piece of chocolate! Report
Dark chocolate, and reese's are great too! Report
Today, I'm just craving chocolate. My favorites are chocolate covered raisins; any Russell Stover combinations, Hershey bars, Dark Hershey bars, M'm's, Musketeers, Milky Ways- I think one can get the picture here. Today, I haven't had chocolate in at least a week and none on hand, so ate 1/2 cup of Chocolate chip morsels-- I know, oh so bad!!! Report
Just found out about these contests -- just another reason to look forward to Fridays! Report
I have never tasted Equal Exchange, would love to try it. If it is chocolate my motto is ....... I love this magnet "Just hand over the chocolate and no one will get hurt!" Report
It would be dark chocolate and crunchy peanut butter. YUM YUM I can't keep them in the house together. Report
Strangely enough, my favorite is water and chocolate! I love to take dark chocolate, freeze it, and then eat it with a big glass of water. Dark chocolate with cayenne pepper is also yummy. Report
I wish I could give some healthy answer like yours ;) But I love white chocolate. Not a fan of pretty much any REAL chocolate. Ah, well I add unsweetened cocoa powder to smoothies sometimes, I'll get my antioxidants that way! Report
