Life is all about balance.

And chocolate. Naturally.

With the new year came resolutions, and hopefully you’re well on your way to keeping them. It sure isn’t easy (Jillian Michaels your DVDs are slaying me!) , and depriving yourself of all the greatness that is chocolate just isn’t acceptable! When I was contacted by Brookside and asked if I wanted to try out their chocolates as part of a balanced life healthy life style, I blinked a couple of times at the words “chocolate” and “healthy, balanced lifestyle” sitting right next to each other – and then shouted a resounding “YES!”, then calming down long enough to politely accept their generous offer.


I was antsy for days waiting for the UPS guy to arrive, and then tore into each bag to test out the three varieties of dark chocolate that Brookside offered. Between the Pomegranate, Acai and Goji berry – it was almost too hard to decide, but I think Goji came out number one in my book.


Brookside combines their quality dark chocolate with exotic fruits that will tantalize your taste buds and quickly become part of your balanced and dark chocolate filled lifestyle.

Initially I wanted to bake something with these fantastic chocolates, but after my first bite that plan went right out the window – along with my self control. And when you try them, you will totally understand.


One lucky winner will also receive a Brookside tasting kit filled to the brim with things to help keep your healthy living right on track, with a few little extras thrown in to make sure you’ve enjoying the new year in style.
