Merci Chocolates Awards Show Giveaway

Merci Giveaway

The folks at Merci Chocolates recently contacted me again to see if I would be interested in hosting another giveaway! This time around, the purveyors of delicious chocolate want to know who you’d give a meaningful thank you to if you were up on stage receiving an award!

It’s time to roll out the red carpets, because award season has arrived! One of the highlights of these annual star-studded evenings is listening to the emotional and meaningful thank you speeches.

But as you watch their grand thank you speeches, it’s important to remember that giving someone a meaningful thank you isn’t just a once a year gesture. Giving a meaningful thank you is a heartfelt way to show those important to you that you truly appreciate them every day.

So as the stars share their thank yous, think of who you’d share a meaningful thank you with if you were on stage and consider saying thank you to someone in your life with a box of Merci chocolates.

Who would you give a meaningful awards-style thank you to? Mine, of course, would be to my husband and daughters!

Merci Chocolates for the Holidays and a Giveaway

Merci Chocolates for the Holidays

I was recently contacted by Merci Chocolates to see if I would be interested in reviewing a box of their chocolates. We all know what the answer to that was, yes?

Each box of Merci (which means “thank you” in French) includes a selection of rich, European chocolates made from premium ingredients. The 7 different chocolates are smooth and creamy and though each bar is no bigger than your finger, it’s the perfect, decadent little treat that just hits the spot when you get a chocolate craving.

Merci Chocolates for the Holidays

The 7 varieties include Milk Chocolate, Coffee and Cream, Hazelnut-Almond, Hazelnut-Creme, Dark Cream, Dark Mousse, and Praline-Creme. There are at least two bars of each, and my favorite of the bunch was the Dark Mousse — talk about a treat!

Merci Chocolates for the Holidays

The affordable 9 ounce box is the perfect size for a meaningful gift, whether it’s for a holiday hostess gift, a teacher’s gift, or just a general thank you, your recipient will be very grateful! You can use the handy store location page here to find out where you can get Merci Chocolates in your area.

I was asked to share who I would give a meaningful thank you to this year, and I didn’t have to give it any thought — that thank you would go to my husband Mike. My reasons border on schmoopy (as they should), but since I don’t do schmoopy I will spare you. But he is schmoop-worthy :)

Merci Chocolates for the Holidays Giveaway

So on that note, and in the spirit of the season, Merci has provided me with one box to give away to one Heather’s Bytes reader!
