Chocolates by Joanne review and GIVEAWAY!

I've been to plenty of weddings in my lifetime and my favorite thing is the wedding favor that is sitting by my plate. I always hated those hard candies. I'm sure you know what I'm talking about (and maybe you love them).

I am of the personal belief that you can never go wrong with chocolate, especially the artisan chocolate that you really can only get at specialty shops.

When Joanne from Chocolates by Joanne sent me some samples of her chocolate, I fell in LOVE.

I received a couple of chocolate-covered Oreos, a chocolate daisy lollipop and a chocolate sunflower lollipop.

I'll start with the chocolate-covered Oreos. So when Oreo announced double-stuffed cookies, I thought God had answered my prayers. Little did I know Oreos could be used for something better! The confetti all over the Oreos were fun... and the taste... oh the taste... yum yum yum!

The next day I tried the chocolate sunflower lollipop. (Are you all impressed with my ability to wait a day before trying another sample?) The smooth and creamy chocolate melted in my mouth. It was so delicious that I sucked on the lollipop stick for a long time before finally realizing I had eaten every little bit of chocolate.

All of the chocolates are made out of creamy and delicious Merckens chocolate. The majority of chocolate is molded. Some designs are done by hand. ALL of the designs are painted by free hand.

Joanne started making chocolates almost 20 years ago as gifts for family members. Her popularity grew and now she has an online store! In addition, several private shops and boutiques in the New York and New Jersey area sell her chocolates.

When you check out the website for Chocolates by Joanne, you will see that there is a chocolate favor for any occasion! There are over 5000 items from which to choose, so if you don't see what you want on the website, feel free to contact Joanne and ask!

I bet your mouth is watering. You are dying for a chocolate-covered, decorated Oreo huh?

How about 9 of them?

Joanne has kindly offered a giveaway prize of 9 Chocolate Covered Party Oreos in a Box to one (1) lucky winner!

I tried to follow you via GFC, but there was no option to join on your site. All I saw was the word: Followers with a blank space. I hope you'll still allow this as an entry, since I tried!
