Sweet Thoughts of Chocolate - A Contest

I know that you are all really caught up in Ground Hog Day festivities and celebrations,
but consider this my friends,

Ground Hog Day will come to an end at midnight on February 2nd
 and you may find yourself totally unprepared
for the other important day in the month!

That is right,
Chocolate Day!

Oh sure, some people call it Valentine's Day,

but I like to call a spade a spade and a chocolate truffle a chocolate truffle.

Luckily I have the solution to this vexing problem.

My favourite place to celebrate Chocolate Day is at the Sweet Thoughts Shop
at 310 Canboro road in Ridgeville.

This is what you see when you walk in the front door.

Wall to wall chocolate and Antonio Banderas
is always there and always happy to serve you.

Okay I made the part up about Antonio Banderas,
but the chocolate is real!


Now this was quite a surprise.

I thought chocolate dropped to earth from heaven like manna and was gathered by the angels.

It turns out chocolate is actually made by people!

Who knew?

Anyway, this is Bobbi - Joan.

She owns and operates Sweet Thoughts.

In the photo she is stirring a pot of chocolate.

Yes, this is what she does for a living.

This is a chocolate bouquet.

Bobby - Joan and her band of merry ladies will make you a chocolate bouquet for any occasion.

They can arrange delivery, too.

You can see pictures of the bouquets at


This is another bouquet.

I know I didn't have to show you two,
but I thought the dragonflies were awesome
and it's my blog.


I know. I know.

A chocolate shop that sells purses.
Life just doesn't get much better than this, does it?


I didn't mention the Valentine jewellery?

To the world you may be one person,
but to one person you may be the world!

If this isn't the perfect gift for someone on your

Chocolate Day

 list, well then I just don't think you are past

celebrating the rodent yet.

This beautiful box of sixteen chocolates from Sweet Thoughts is the prize.

This is The Contest:

1. You are only allowed to enter once, even if you really, really, really want to win.

2. You must enter on or before Thursday, February 10th.

3. To enter write the name of two famous lovers in the comment section of my blog, on my wall in face book or if you are entering from you can email me at

4. They can be historical figures, book characters, movie characters, tv characters, radio personalities, politicians, cartoons, etc.  Just no friends, neighbours or relatives, however old and historical they may look.

5.  Anyone can enter. Canadians, Americans, the Irish, the Saami tribes from northern Scandinavia, even people from Niagara Falls.

6. I  will post the winner's name on my blog, on February 11th.


At least one of the sweethearts has to have some kind of a connection to Canada.

Oscar Wilde and Marquess of Queensberry's son.

The Episcopagan said...

A tragic romance for sure, but there's no Canadian connection, ComMon.

Doug Jamieson said...

Ah yes, February 5th. Anniversary of General Douglas MacArthur's return to Manila in 1945. How soon we all forget.

Liz & Dick. They stayed at the Sutton Place hotel in Toronto, I think. Is shacking up in the Sutton Place considered a connection to Canda?

The Episcopagan said...

Doug, you are so funny!

Of course Liz & Dick count. And I believe one of their marriages took place in Montreal.
