AKA: Life Without Chocolate…

Last summer, we gave away a 4-piece box of gourmet chocolate truffles every month to a lucky winner out in Idaho. Kathy receives a different boxed artisan truffle collection every four weeks delivered right to her door! And she won this simply by answering the question: What would your life be without chocolate?

As temps soar into the 90’s in the Northeast, we’re back again with another YEAR OF CHOCOLATE CONTEST! Only this time, the stakes are higher!

Not only will one lucky winner receive a year of chocolate, but also a tee shirt with their winning entry printed right on the shirt. This year, we’re asking for a witty & humorous slogan that we can print on promotional items for Barkeater Chocolates. You can use the Life Without Chocolate…(fill in the blanks) template, or come up with one of your own. It must be one line & mention the word “chocolate.”

Staff at Barkeater Chocolates will go through the entries and select up to 10 slogans that they would love to use on their tee shirts and other materials. Then, the fun really begins!!

Those who follow Barkeater Chocolates on Twitter and Facebook will get to vote for the best slogan. You can vote for your own slogan – but you must follow/fan us to do so. This insures that no one votes more than once. Want to win? Promote the Barkeater Chocolates page on your Facebook page or tweet about @bark_chocolates on Twitter. Ask your friends and followers to vote for your slogan. As an incentive to them, we will give out another prize, chosen at random, to one follower or fan who votes. That winner will receive one 8-piece box of artisan truffles and one tee shirt with the winning line!

POST YOUR WINNING SLOGAN IN THE COMMENTS SECTION! Remember, we need to know we can contact you should your slogan become one of the finalists, so posting from “anonymous” won’t make the cut unless you put your name (first is fine) and email address in the body of the comment.

Please read the rules! And don’t plagiarize or tweak a commonly used slogan. For example, no one should post “Got Chocolate?” or “Chocolate…Don’t Leave Home Without It.” Also, material deemed offensive will be deleted immediately. Stay away from copyrighted lines from a recorded song, published book or movie – which means, No Forrest Gump references! If chosen, you will be stating that the line is original and not submitted elsewhere! Thanks and GOOD LUCK!
