Celebrate Your Friends With Merci Chocolate - #merciFriends Review and Giveaway

I received products for review from merci chocolates. The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way. Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services. Your opinions and results may differ.

National Friendship Week began August 11th as a time to celebrate some of the most important people in your life - your friends! I have several people I call friends but only a handful that I consider very near and dear. One of them is Kim, my bestie.

Kim and I met three years ago when she started camping at Whispering Oaks. She came over and introduced herself, and it's been on from there. She's a breath of fresh air because she's very honest with me and won't beat around the bush or backstab. She's also a hoot to be around, always coming up with antics. Her storytelling skills gather you in and I've never had a moment when I've felt betrayed by her. She and I recently went on a trip with our husbands and a couple of the kids to World Fuel Altered Nationals at Eddyville Raceway. I think the trip was so much more fun simply because she was there.


Although National Friendship Week is over, I still think it's important to take advantage of acknowledging and thanking your friends for the good they bring to your life. There is no better way of expressing heartfelt gratitude than with a gift that speaks for itself: Merci Finest Assortment of European Chocolates. The delicious selection of rich European chocolates made from the finest ingredients available, provide indulgence and variety. With flavors like Cream Truffle, Hazelnut-Almond, Praline-Creme, and Dark Cream, merci will delight the palate. Each chocolate is individually wrapped and offer a couple bites of sweet delectable taste. Because I'm thankful to the friends in my life, I shared a box of Merci chocolates with a few of them recently. Sitting around gabbing and delighting in the rich chocolate flavors of Merci was another moment I enjoyed with my friends, and a memory I'll treasure.
Win It!

One person will win a Merci Chocolate Friendship Kit that includes:
$25 Target gift card
7 ounce box of merci chocolates
a "Friend" picture frame
a chocolate scented candle

*This is a Rafflecopter giveaway open to residents of the USA.*

I look for the following qualities, which I have in my best friend Heidi: someone you can tell anything to, and not worry about being judged. You can always lean on them and count on them, no matter how ludicrous the situation or how late the hour it is occurring.
