I have a well-documented weakness for pretty packaging, so these gourmet bars from a new chain called Bardot are right up my alley. Made by hand, and available in a series of stores in California, these fancy ice cream bars feature hip, modern (edible) designs embossed across their chocolate casings. The bars, which are made with fresh fruit and without any artificial colors, come in a variety of interesting flavors, like Deep Thoughts (fresh Thai mint), Ebony and Ivory (fresh mascarpone cheese + dulce de leche), and Southern Belle (key lime and graham cracker). They all sound mighty delicious! It would tough to pick just one! For the complete list of Bardot flavors and store locations, click here.
Speaking of great design (how'd you like that segue?), the kind folks at the Shabby Apple sent me an email the other day about the possibility of sponsering a giveaway for dessert girl readers. Over the years, I've been contacted by various companies about doing giveaways, but I never felt very passionatly about any of the products. I didn't want to do a giveway simply for the sake of doing a giveaway. So, when Shabby Apple contacted me, a site that I visit quite often, I knew it was an offer too good to pass up! I have yet to make a Shabby Apple purchase, but I absolutely love looking at their clothes (and pinning them)! Cute, retro, and stylish, that pretty much sums up the Shabby Apple aesthetic and they have a ton of adorable clothing, accessories, and swimwear to choose from. Trust me when I say that you'll be oohing and ahhing all over their site!
Okay, here are the giveaway details.
1) Winner will receive a $50 gift card to spend as they choose.
