WIN a Box of France's finest chocolate and celebrate the flavours of Provence!

When I think of Provence, I think of rocky hillsides nestled with olive trees and rolling hills of vineyards. But I also think of summer sun and the pebbly beach in Nice, where I spent a little time just before I moved back to Canada (10 years ago this month) after a school year spent in France.

Besides studying, much of my year was spent seeking out chocolate, and dreaming of more time to travel and experience all the wonderful regional flavours France had to offer. Provence is one of the most well-known regions for its range of gourmet flavours because of its diverse landscape. And now zChocolat has captured many of those flavours in a new collection for summer 2015.

This Provence 30-piece collection* says it all: 15 decadent French chocolates, PLUS 15 gourmet candies with a full range of Provence flavours, including: sweet almond nougat made with lavender honey, and p√Ętes de fruit, a candy made from fully ripened fruit like cherry, orange, green apple, raspberry, strawberry, lemon and apricot. There is also the Calisson, a "delicate blend of almond paste, orange zest and candied cantaloupe". Have you ever tasted candied cantaloupe in North America? Likely not. But if you enter to win zChocolat's 30 piece Provence collection, this may be your chance!

I have written about the deliciousness of zChocolat's collections before (click here for a previous article). The chocolates are all numbered and match a unique recipe created by World Champion Chocolatier, Pascal Caffet. They are true decadence. And the signature Z chocolate, which is included in the Provence collection, is the most decadent of all.

You can WIN this Provence 30 piece collection by zChocolat!  Enter below for your chance to win!  This contest runs from 12:00 a.m. on June 13th until 12:00 a.m. on June 20th. The 30-piece collection is valued at approximately $69.10 (CAD) plus shipping and handling - nearly $100 in gourmet chocolate! So get your entries in now!

*zChocolat's 'With Love From Provence' Collection is available for deliver starting June 23rd, but is now on zChocolat's website and available for online pre-order.
