Cowgirl Chocolates and Other Fabulous Things

Cowgirl Chocolates!

Last week I was fortunate enough to get a sample from Cowgirl Chocolates! The chocolates came in this adorable little box:



And inside was another adorable package:



My intern and I were hard at work trying to diligently sample the treats. The sad part is it took me nearly a week to get through everything and I still have one left. I must say that I really enjoyed these chocolates!

Here is the description from the site:


Cowgirl Chocolates are sweet and spicy gourmet chocolates for adventurous chocolate lovers
and packaged as unique beautiful gifts for any and all occasions.

Though I received samples of the spicy chocolates, I leaned more toward the mild truffles.

Here are the flavors I tried:

Mild truffles:

Pure Milk Chocolate -
milk chocolate plain and simple

Double Dark Chocolate -
pure dark chocolate plain and simple

Ivory Orange -
white chocolate with a creamy milk chocolate orange infused center

Raspberry lemonade dark chocolate -

an old cowgirl recipe blended to perfection with raspberry, lemon and deep dark chocolate


Here is the Raspberry lemonade dark chocolate:



The flavor was so rich and complex, it knocked me off my chocolate lovin feet!

Other Fabulous Things:

I have taken care of some of that stress stuff by letting it go. There's nothing I can really do about being busy, so I'm trying to be more efficient during the day and look forward to the weekends!

  • I had an awesome workout today:
2-mile run and 15 minutes on the elliptical- holy cardio goodness. I'm getting a little sore in my knees again, so I'm mixing up the impact on my knees!

  • I have been eating some (lots) of Maranatha Almond Butter. While I have been devoted to TJ's brand of almond butter, I loved the $6 something price at costco and it has lasted forever! Yay for buying in bulk!
  • I have a bit of an obsession with theknot.com. It tells me that there are only 111 days until my wedding and makes me giddy and paranoid- a happy combination! I look at stuff like this on there (image courtesy of theknot.com):
  • I have rediscovered cottage cheese, flat out wraps, and Better n' Peanut Butter (all together). Check out my buffet...also tonight's dinner:


Well now that I have finished my ramblings, I'm off to shower and watch my other obsession, How I Met Your Mother. If you haven't seen it, you haven't lived. Seriously.

Yum those chocolates look great. I can't find Flat Out wraps around here, can you tell me what kind you get and what the nutritional stats are??

I love How I Met Your Mother, do you watch the Big Bang Theory on Mondays too?

Countdowns rock, I'm at 39 days until the wedding, yikes!

I like the Flatout Light Original. They have 90 calories, 9grams of protein, and 9 grams of fiber. Not sure how that all fits, but they taste good!

I looked on their site and it looks like they are nationally available- plus you can order online!

39 days! Yikes- are you losing it yet?
