Ascending Butterfly's 'It's MY Birthday, but You Get the Gifts' Giveaways, brought to you by:

Well my butterflies, my big day is coming up on Monday, and we are in the middle of the 'it's MY birthday, But You get the gifts' annual promotion! We started with Novica where I shared some great prezzies (including cute and meaningful bling), and now we are moving to treats!

As you know I celebrate my birthday for a full month, and delectable delights are a big part of the fun! I am definitely a chocolate lover, and a big believer in the saying that you should never trust someone who hates chocolate or puppies (unless of course, it's not that they hate either one, but are allergic).

Besides Milk, Do you know what else pairs quite nicely with chocolate?

If you answered 'Wine' then you and your palate are definitely a friend of mine!

Lindt Excellence Bars

70% Cocoa

Even though this is 70% Cocoa chocolate, there is no 'bitter' taste, it's a very smooth chocolate flavor!


Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Aroma: Citrus, Vanilla, Fresh Leaves

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Taste: Smooth and Creamy Dark Chocolate that is neither bitter nor overpowering. Bright Floral Flavor with Fruit and Vanilla Notes.

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Pairing Suggestions: Sweet Fruit Flavors and pronounced Vanilla found in Merlot compliment the Vanilla in the 70% bar quite nicely!

A Touch of Sea Salt Dark

For those of you who like savory with their sweet, then this bar is definitely for you!


Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Aroma: Cocoa, Brown Sugar, ocean salt

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Taste: The delicate, sweet Cocoa flavor is intensified by the bite of Fleur de Sel Sea Salt. Delightfully sharp with notes of cocoa and honey.

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Pairing Suggestions: The rich berry notes in a Cabernet Franc Ice Wine are a perfect accompaniment to the Touch of Sea Salt Bar.

My Take:

These bars were both super good! And don't be shy about the pairings, you can try the dark chocolate with a crisp white and it's a nice surprise for your palate. I would also go bold, because I did try this, take the Touch of Sea Salt bar, and pair it with a great Tequila! It makes for an incredible combo!
