Chocolate for dinner

After I wrote yesterday about how I need to start working out, I, of course, attended a private chocolate tasting for Minnesota Bloggers at Sees Candies in the Southdale Mall. Man, were we spoiled with so many delicious chocolates!

imageWe received free samples (they give away over a million pounds of chocolate a year so go get yourself a sample or two!) and even got to try our hand at boxing chocolate. It is a lot harder than it looks and I have a new-found appreciation for this infamous clip, which was actually filmed at Sees!

image_3Most exciting for me was that this was my first MN Blogger event and it was great to see so many people in person after reading their blogs! It was a bit difficult for me to match people’s name tags to their blog name so I got a little shy but I’m definitely looking forward to the next event!

    So fun meeting you last night, Katie. I had my hands full with my 2 daughters, but next time I hope to chat with you more.
    This was SUCH a fun event – – I’ll be eating chocolate for the next 6 months with all that we took home. HAHA

    I had such a fun time yesterday and it was great to see you! It was kind of a crazy event though with all of the exuberate staff and I think that we all may have been a bit overwhelmed with the chocolate choices! I’m hoping that we can get an event on the books where we can actually relax and socialize with one another– last night was fun but a little crazy too! 🙂
