Battle of the Chocolates! | Metcalfe’s Gift Card Giveaway

unnamed-1Are there any chocolate lovers out there?! If that didn’t get your attention I’m not sure what will! This Saturday and Sunday, Metcalfe’s (Hilldale & West Towne locations) will be holding their annual BATTLE of the CHOCOLATES. This FREE annual holiday affair gives attendees a chance to sample more than 40 gourmet chocolates and vote for your favorite. Some of the gourmet chocolate bars to sample include: Green & Black’s Organic, Ghirardelli, Lindt, Ritter Sport, Moonstruck, Chocolove, Taza Chocolates, Toblerone, Bark Thins, and MORE! The Battle of the Chocolates will certainly satisfy your sweet tooth, while also putting you in the holiday spirit.

Metcalfe’s Market is a family owned and operated neighborhood market known for an abundance of local and premium quality foods. They provide more than 3,000 local foods and use local ingredients in all chef-prepared foods. Not only this, but Metcalfe’s also buys local. I love shopping at Metcalfe’s – they have the selection and brands I am seeking and I am always provided with friendly service! Buying local is important to me and I love that I can do that by shopping at Metcalfe’s!
