What's Choxie? I wondered to myself.
Choxie is, what I like to call, funky chocolate.
I bought some truffles around Christmas with peppermint flakes on the outside - delicious!
Then, I got some Valentines Day clearance Choxie. This particular box, regular price probably $8, on sale for around $2, had 4 different types of chocolate. My favorite of these four was called Fiery. It was dark chocolate with something spicy in it. It was soooo good and I don't even like spicy stuff. I don't know why, the combination of the two was just good. I gave Bob a piece and as he was eating it, because the spicy takes a few seconds to kick in, he says, "Is it possible that this has something spicy in it?" I wish y'all could've seen his face when he asked. It was like he didn't trust what he was tasting since it was such an abnormal combination.
Anyway, here's what's weird. I can't find a website for Choxie. If you type in http://www.choxie.com/, it takes you to Target's grocery section. Strange right? I mean, it's not like Target has its own Choxie chocolate factory in the back, right? It is, apparently, an exclusive brand. And while we're on exclusive brands...Target also carries Wine Cube. What a great deal. You can get the equivalent of two bottles in a cube for about the same price as a moderately priced bottle of wine (which definitely has some novelty to it). They've also got cute covers to go over the cubes.
Anyway, back to the chocolate. I'm sort of a sucker for cute packaging. I say sort of because I know I am. That means, I'm definitely drawn to it but I won't buy something just because of the packaging. Choxie has cute packaging and sometimes they have chocolate with the same patterns as what's on their packaging, on the candy. See Artisan Collection.
I actually haven't seen most of the types shown online in our store and there are a lot in our store that aren't shown online. You should definitely check out your local Target. Give it a taste and let me know what you think. In fact, I think I'll do a giveaway.
Here's how we'll do it...
If the winner is local (and I see you pretty often), I'll bring you a box - of my choosing :).
If the winner isn't local, I'll mail you a $10 gift card for Target and trust that you'll use it to try Choxie!
Just leave a comment telling me if you prefer white, milk, or dark chocolate.
Let me know if you've ever tried Choxie and if you win, will you eat the candy, share it or give all of it away?
Non-bloggers can enter, just be sure you leave your email address so I can contact you if ya win!
As always, I use the random number generator to pick a winner. I'll do so next Tuesday, March 25th.
