Godiva Coffee and a Giveaway

Have you begun your Black Friday shopping yet??

Personally, I'm not a fan of Black Friday. Crowds of hundreds of people scrambling and shoving, up before the crack of dawn, in order to obtain that big screen LCD television for $1,000 rather than $2,000 is just not my cup of tea.

I'll enjoy some extra time in bed catching up on sleep. Mmmk?

Speaking of tea, I'm straying from my usual cup this morning and sipping on Godiva's most recent brilliant concoction -- Chocolate Truffle coffee. I graciously received this in a bag of goodies from Foodbuzz during the conference I attended a few weeks ago.

I almost feel guilty drinking it for breakfast. The chocolate notes are strong, but not sweet. Sweetened creamers are often too much even for my sweet tooth, but this gives you all the flavor without the hypoglycemic shock.

To help get you prepared for your holiday baking and drink-making, I am hosting a giveaway of a Godiva Coffee apron. Appropriately chocolate-colored (but probably not flavored...sorry), it has handy pockets at the bottom to place your whisk or cinnamon or any other little thing you need to store away for a moment to transport across the kitchen or free your hands.

Godiva has a couple of special holiday blends, including this pumpkin spice flavor, which I will also throw into the mix for you, along with a $2 off coupon to purchase your favorite flavor for that holiday shindig. They make tasty lattes and other speciality drinks which you can find recipes for here.

To enter the giveaway, simply post a comment with your favorite holiday coffee drink. Click the 'join this site' link on the right tab and I'll give you a second chance. I will pick a winner using the random number generator after the giveaway closes November 30th at 8:00 am PST.

Good luck and happy drinking!

My mom's coffee! She brews freshly ground, strong coffee, adds a small bit of honey and just the right amount of half and half (actually, CIF sometimes) . . . it's just perfect. :-) (I also joined your site)

The coffee drink that we like in our house is one with a mix of pumpkin and white chocolate. So so good.
