{Giveaway}: Godiva’s Sweet Summer Treats

Strawberry Bridge
 

Happy almost-weekend! I’m helping to start it right by holding a Godiva giveaway!

Godiva selected me and a few other bloggers to be their summer social ambassadors, and help spread the word about some of their new creations for summer. 

Although I’ll never say no to chocolate truffles, when it’s hot and steamy outside (and we do get a couple of those days in San Francisco, fog notwithstanding!) something cold and sweet fits my cravings best. Godiva is introducing two new treats that fit the bill:

Their Trufflelata is a frozen shake blended with one of their truffles for an extra-rich experience. You can choose from six flavors ranging from salted caramel to hazelnut crunch. I guess this means I can have my truffle and sip it as well!

Godiva is also premiering their in-house Belgian soft serve ice cream. There are three flavors: Dark Chocolate, White Chocolate Vanilla Bean, and the mandatory Swirl for those who just can’t decide. They also offer Belgian waffle cones that can be dipped in milk or dark chocolate, just in case you aren’t feeling indulgent enough.

Both of these items will be appearing (if they haven’t already) at Godiva boutiques everywhere. I’ll be at a special Godiva summer social in San Francisco next week premiering these items, but you can get in on the celebration as well: I’m giving away five $25 Godiva gift cards to lucky Dessert First readers!

To enter:

1. Leave a comment answering the question, “What is your favorite summer sweet treat?”

2. You can have up to three more entries by following me on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. Just leave another comment here for each account you’ve followed.

The contest will run until next Friday, August 1. I will announce the winners on Monday, August 4th.

Thanks and good luck!

This is a sponsored post. I have been compensated by Godiva to attend their event and received the gift cards for a giveaway. All opinions in this post remain my own.

    Anhhhh – favorite summer treat: ice coffee made with cold brew, poured over a glass full of nugget ice (like the kind they use at Sonic). Drink the iced coffee, and … the best part…. eat the ice!

    One of my favorite summer treats would have to be frozen banana soft serve. It tastes sweet, decadent, and soothing on a hot sunny day and I could probably eat it everyday in this season either plain or with toppings such as nut butters or fruit ~

    Today is really a scorcher and for me drinking a nice cold glass of mulberry Vimto does the trick, with plenty of ice. My other favorite summer treat has to be cold sliced watermelon :-) Love your blog and happy summer.

    Favorite summer sweet treat? It’s a toss-up between homemade ice cream (peach!) and icy-cold rum-blended drinks!
