Free – The word free catches my eye every time. I see ads for “free” dogs and “free” kittens all the time. I see articles about how to find “free” things online. We all like to get our “free” coupons for a trial size duster or “free” magic eraser. Wal-Mart is good for giving away “free” things. Over the last 5 years a little Wal-Mart package has been delivered to my door monthly, sometimes weekly.
Yes, free is good. Do you know what else is good? The word “free” followed by the word chocolate. I would say it is safe to assume that 99 out of 100 woman love chocolate. I also imagine that at least 90 out of 100 men love chocolate but won’t admit to it.
What it is with chocolate anyway? Why can’t we get enough of it I wonder? For me it is the richness, the flavor and the aroma of the chocolate. If all I have in the house is a bag of M&M’s, then that is the chocolate that does it for me. I do prefer dark chocolate but I’ve been known to put away a few M&M’s in my day too. White chocolate is my least favorite. I can skip the nuts and the carmel, just give me chocolate.
Now back to the word “free” followed by the word “chocolate”. Just last week Mars Candy Company began giving out coupons for chocolate treats to the first 250,000 people who logged on at RealChocolate.com on Friday. The program was such a success that this week Mars has upped the number of free coupons to 500,000 on a first come first serve basis. The coupons will be mailed to your homes. What a deal…this is like a dream come true.
Why is Mars doing this? They are giving away free chocolate as a promotion. According to Mars, federal regulations stipulate that the only source of fat (except milk fat) in a chocolate product should be cocoa butter. Mars says it only uses 100 percent cocoa butter. They are trying to educate consumers to look at labels whenever they buy chocolate to be sure they’re getting the real thing.
I just went to the website and the coupon give-a-way starts at 9:00 in the east. They even provided a spot for my e-mail addy and they will send a reminder for me to apply for my free chocolate coupon. What a company!! Get your coupon here.
Hurry and try to be one of the lucky ones today. If you aren’t’ remember that this promotion will continue through September. So head on over to Mars for your coupon for free chocolate. Nothing is better than chocolate and nothing could top free chocolate!
