Alright, let’s kick this celebration off with some sweet goodness from Theo Chocolates! Take a look at this beautiful gift pack of all-organic dark yuminess that’s also Fair Trade certified. Should you be the lucky winner, you’ll receive a 32 piece Theo Confection Collection Box, Nib Brittle, enrobed or naked (4 oz.), Sipping Chocolate (1 lb.), 3 of their 3400 Phinney flavored bars (2 oz. bars) and 2 Theo Origin bars (3 oz. bars).

Sweet tooth aching yet?

We dig Theo because they were pioneers in the act of switching to organic chocolate — becoming the first importer of organic cocoa beans into North America in 1994. To this day, Theo is the only roaster of organic cocoa beans and the first roaster of Fair Trade certified cocoa beans in the United States. They were recently honored this year with 5 medals from The Academy Of Chocolate and have also been featured as a favorite of Oprah in her O Magazine.

We’re pretty sure you do not need any convincing that this is some damn fine chocolate — but feel free to jump over to their official site anyways.

Want to win? Leave a comment below on why you need this delicious sugar fix! One comment will be drawn at random 72 hours from now. The full contest details are available here. Good luck!

    I love chocolate!

  • holly

    i need chocolate because i have two small children. puh-leeze. is there a better reason out there? and i promise i won’t share it with them.

  • Mary

    I could use a sugar rush since I work from 9:00 am until 11:00 pm most weekdays! Chocolate would definitely help keep me going!

    Happy birthday! Thanks for the giveaway!

  • Thea Rose

    I got a bar of this chocolate for my birthday…it’s yummy. ANd I like the name too :)

  • Melynda

    I am 40 weeks and 5 days pregnant. That’s five days past my due date. I’m tired and uncomfortable and chocolate will give me solace.

    Assuming I have this baby before the chocolate arrives, then I’ll be a tired mother of a 1.5 year old and a newborn!

    Only dark, organic chocolate can help!

  • Julie M

    In this house chocolate is a staple, it has it’s own food group, haha. Add to the fact that this is a Fair trade product and that makes it almost perfect!! Thanks for the great contest!! :)

  • Sabrina

    Who Doesn’t Want Chocolate — especially the super, awesome, yummy Theo Chocolate!

    Thanks for the great prize giveaway!

  • Kai

    What a great prize!! Happy birthday!

  • Sally

    I NEEEEEED this goodness because I sit at a desk for 8 hours a day and coworkers insist on filling a candy jar with non-vegan yuckiness … and they keep the candy jar in my cubicle

  • Erin

    Other than diamonds, I don’t think there is anything a girl adore more than chocolates.

  • Michael

    Theo makes fair trade chocolate and I need chocolate as much as I need a clear conscience.

  • Holly

    I’m trying to green every aspect of my life and since chocolate is my biggest vice some organic chocolate would really help!

  • vegoftheweek

    Different chocolate for every week, of course!

  • Rachelle

    I’m PMSing and I’m vegan…Need I say more? LOL!…Happy Birthday!! :)

  • VeggieTart

    Sugar, salt, chocolate, caffeine–these are a few of my favorite things.

    If I win, can I get it all vegan? I always have something chocolate in my bag in the event of a stressful day. If I were a true chocoholic, I’d be pouring vegan chocolate syrup over chocolate soy ice cream, but I’m not that nuts.

    And I promise I’ll share it with my boyfriend–if he behaves.

  • Sara

    My boyfriend sent me the truffles and bars right before Valentine’s Day this year and I was in heaven. The truffles are so fresh they burst with flavor – the lemon and the PB&J was my favorite. The bars are awesome too – the curry is really interesting and the chocolate and bread is surprisingly accurate – like a chocolate croissant. :)

  • tree

    i need chocolate to stay sane. i really do. Must have chocolate….

    please pick me!!!!!

  • patti

    My friend had a stomach thing wherein she had to give up eating solid foods for awhile. I told her I’d give up my favorite thing too. So I gave up chocolate. Turns out they misdiagnosed her. She’s eating solid foods again… and me? I have yet to catch up!

  • Kate

    chocolate makes me happy. ’nuff said.

    hbd2u :)

  • GreenQueen

    I don’t need chocolate- chocolate needs me! I’ve been in a life-long relationship with chocolate and it’s never cancelled a date or ditched me for one of my friends. Keep us together- pick me to win!

  • Cheryl W

    I need this chocolate because without my chocolate fix I get cranky! thanks!

  • Jessica

    I need this chocolate because my PhD thesis is due in 37 days. That means I need to write a LOT and chocolate will make me happy enough to get it done. :) Besides, I love Ecorazzi! Happy Birthday!

  • Dianne

    What’s not to like about chocolate? :)

  • Joleen

    I have three kids. Chocolate is my therapy.

  • Barbara Baker

    What I wouldn’t give for that sweet looking chocolate gift basket that so desperately is calling my name…It’s saying, take me home, eat me, enjoy…Oh my gosh, it’s taunting me!!!!

    I’ve gotta win this, I need this :)

    Great giveaway!!!

  • Doreen

    Hi, I soooo need this delicious sugar fix of Chocolate because I work in a Special Needs School. I work with Autistic, ED children and other students with special needs. I really, really NEED the energy as you can imagine!! I NEED some sugar to keep up with them! LOL Some days trash cans are thrown across the classrooms or hallways. Yes, my days are like that! Makes for a dangerous situation. It’s the hardest job I’ve ever had in my life–it’s also the most rewarding one.

  • Mary Jenkins

    I’d love this basket o’ treats just to share with everyone. Everybody has been so good to me and mine. I wish I had a nice way to extend a thank you. Nothing conveys the seriousness of the sentiment more than chocolate!

  • Laurin

    I wants me some chocolate!

  • Jerae

    Oh my…chocolate heaven!

  • Karin A

    mmmmm ..chocolate. One of my favorite treats to have with coffee.

  • Robert Loy

    The diet that I’m on the only sweet allowed is dark chocolate. I dream about the stuff.

  • jamie lynn

    i need to stuff my face with chocolate because my loving partner has been deployed for five months, i work with children all day long, my sewing machine broke and i’m midway through making a dress entirely by hand, i have to go visit my mother-in-law in a couple weeks, and if i don’t get some downtime with a glass of wine and some chocolatey goodness, i may implode.

  • Johannah B

    I think of chocolate as a lifeline…. and about now with back to school, etc. I need one!! or a whole basket for that matter.

  • Michele Pineda

    If I won, I would love to bring it to the office and share with my coworkers…we all LOVE chocolate, and when stressed, that is the first thing we reach for!

  • Marie Hoag

    I need chocolate because I am a new 2nd grade teacher, working 10 hours a day (UNPAID) setting up my classroom, on top of teaching summer school. I am dedicated to having a Green classroom and this is a great start :)

  • erin f

    I too work long hours and have moved four times in four years due to hurricanes. I need to share this chocolate with my big family who are also storm survivors ;)

  • Betty

    It’s chocolate. That in itself is a perfectly good reason for anyone to need it. Chocolate is absolutely required when the inlaws come to visit.

  • Rhonda Martin

    Are you kidding!?! Who could resist entering for this giveaway!!!! I can almost taste it already. Have you ever had a day where you thought “Give Me Chocolate or Give Me Death” Well I have those days A LOT~!!! If not for Chocolate I think I would already be committed lol Thanks for getting my hopes up but you do know that if I don’t win this after seeing all the wonderful chocolate you know what that means,,,,The stock market for cocoa is going to go sky high~!

  • Allie

    Oooh! That looks good!

  • Michele

    I need to have a stash of chocolates from the kids (maybe I would share ths though) this would be a great stash and healthier! And MAYBE last me a while!

  • Krista

    Those definitely look tasty. Count me in.

  • Erika

    Chocolate makes every day sooooo much better! :)

  • Chocoholics Girlfriend

    I would love to have that delicious basket to share with my boyfriend. I received a bar of Trader Joes Organic Chocolate from my boyfriends cousin last night as a belated birthday present. He wanted me to share with him, relentlessly saying “Sharing is Caring” Didnt care enough to share last night, but if I win this I will gladly share with him!!

  • Archer


    I need the chocolate to soothe my aching heart (and muscles). Cacao contains magnesium you know. It’s good for the weary body.

    I need the chocolate to counteract the assailing non-native grasses in bloom in our southwestern deserts. The stimulant effects of chocolate can dry some people’s sinuses. I guess I’m one of the lucky few.

    I need that chocolate.

  • Chi

    What a delicious contest! I NEED chocolate! I don’t think life is liveable without chocolate in it. So you know, if I win, I will thoroughly enjoy it :D

  • Mook Han Kim

    Organic & sweet. How can I resist it!

  • liz

    I hereby deserve (and need) the chocolate because I have slaved over a hot fire 10 hours a day 7 days a week for 20 years.

  • Sharyn

    All I need to hear is the *word* chocolate, and I am there. And dark chocolate makes it that much better.

  • Jennae @ Green Your Decor

    I’d be lying if I told you I “need” this chocolate, but I sure as heck want it. Delicious chocolate and its organic AND Fair Trade? I think I’m in heaven.

  • jj

    My British hubby and daughter could go through this in about a day- let’s give em a chance to try!

  • ellen cunningham

    I need this because I am due very soon and I can’t get enough chocolate.

  • Patricia Hill

    I’ve been having a bad day-really a bad week, and chocolate always makes me feel better. I need a serenity fix.

  • Belinda P

    I’m addicted to chocolate. This looks wonderful I would love to try Theo organic. Thanks for the great giveaway!

    I love chocolate and as a mom of two small boys I could definitely use a treat for myself! Thank you for the giveaway!

  • Moonunit

    Umm did someone say chocolate?

    These comments are great…I think Mylenda should get it…she has earned it!

  • Eloise Carlson

    I need this sugar fix because I went gestational diabetic with my second daughter and she is almost here and I haven’t had sugar in a while so when she finally gets here, I will definitely be ready for a sugar fix! Thanks so much for the giveaway!

  • Frankie

    I don’t get to eat much chocolate because of health reasons, and if I am going to have some, it should be GOOD CHOCOLATE, darn it!!

  • Betty N

    My husband uses good chocolate to bless people who just go about doing their jobs well but are often overlooked (or not particularly treated well),such as secretaries, scedulers at doctor’s offices, grocery store personnel, etc. If I won, I would let him split the prize up among various deserving people.

  • Elisa

    I love chocolate and after the week I’ve had I need some!

  • Jasmine G

    I need Organic Chocolate, for I have only been able to find one organic brand in my area, and i am getting bored of the selections.

  • Linda Pinto

    I need the beautiful chocolates because they will make me feel good all over. Just thinking about them makes me tingle.

  • Les Slusarczyk

    Not only would the chocolate give me a much needed energy boost to get thru the day(Its only 2 pm and I’m already dragging), but since its organic I dont have to feel guilty about eating it. :D

  • Megan Dietz

    oooh i would like some chocolate please! that looks verry nice

  • judy brittle

    I really and truly need some chocolate! I have my husband home from being layed off from work. My daughter moved back home with my 2 grandbabies. I need to go hide away for awhile with something wonderful to soothe me-CHOCOLATE!!!

  • Lynn

    Yum… a perfect treat.

  • Kirsten

    Ok, here’s the deal. I don’t really need the chocolate. In fact, I barely like chocolate. Furthermore, I’m quite sure I don’t DESERVE chocolate. I’m fairly certain I am a decent person, but I have many many flaws. But, I would like to WIN something. Is that selfish? Probably, but I did tell you about my many flaws.

  • Andrea R

    I just got a new puppy. Its almost like having another baby! I need the chocolate so I can keep up with the puppy!

  • ainteasybeinggreen

    my biology requires me to eat chocolate everyday.

  • SharonC

    Unemployed and job hunting.

  • Jackie B.

    It’s organic. ALways trying to do my part to “go green.” YummY!

  • Deborah

    It’s chocolate…of course I need it!

  • Gwen L

    Please don’t ask me to justify my desire for chocolate. Any justification I could come up with would cheapen my love, and I want to keep it pure!

  • amandasue

    I would love this because its organic and dark chocolate so I wouldn’t feel so guilty eating it, and I’ve been sad lately due to a job loss and family problems, and chocolate always makes me happy :)

  • Susan Long

    My best friend Donna is turning 50 and LOVES chocolate what a way to “help”her celebrate greenly the 2nd half of her life !

  • Maja

    I need it since it’s been a while since I indulged in it. I LOVE chocolate…especially Nutella spread, I can eat it with a spoon until half is gone.

  • Cori Westphal

    I just have to have chocolate everyday. Even if it’s just a tiny bit. I am a firm believer that chocolate can be as bad as a drug! I need a fix! Thanks for the great contest!

  • Ellen Ring

    I take care of my 3 grandaughters & need all the sugar I can get. With my love for anything chocolate I really need this.

  • Laura

    I love how the winner is picked at random and everyone is pleading their case as to why the should be awarded the chocolate. We’re all like a pack of chocolate hungry wolves. Me? I’m fasting but my husband loves chocolate more than anyone I know.

  • Linda F

    I love dark chocolate but I have never tried an organic version.

  • cathleen n.

    My cavities need even deeper holes, and my dentist needs a new Porsche thanks to my mouth alone!!!

    I work at a University and school is about to start- my student employees are chocolate freaks so I would bring some to work and share with them!

    Cocoa beans are the most complex food. They can’t even ID everything in them. No wonder we’re all addicted.

  • Gayla

    I would love to have this dark chocolate. I love dark chocolate, but only rarely can I afford to indulge myself with something so fantastic. My dad introduced me to dark chocolate and I wasn’t a chocoholic before that, but I am now.

  • Melissa V

    i need a sugar fix so bad! i have been having the longest hardest busiest kind of days and this would be a nice treat for me! i will go crazy without some sweet organic heaven!

  • Tina Hartley

    WOW this is great,I love Chocolate

  • Phoebe S

    Did you know that chocolate is one of the most pesticide-intensive crops out there? That’s one reason why organic chocolate rules!

    Chocolate tastes even *sweeter* when it’s Fair Trade — and EcoRazzi is even going so far as to carbon-offset the shipping on this delicious goodness.

    Thanks, EcoRazzi! And Happy Birthday!!!

  • Shilo Beedy

    I would love this! I can’t live without chocolate.

  • Annie G

    Well, I’m on a diet, and let’s face it, diets work best with the occasional good quality chocolate fix. So really, if I win this, you will be helping me lose weight!

  • Stephen Albert

    Chocolate is the quicker picker upper.

  • Deborah

    Chocolate is a food group! I’d be honored to win this super cool prize. It’s not always easy to go organic…this helps satisfy two cravings at once.
