***GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED***
#150 Marjorie W.
I just ate the best chocolate chip cookie….EVER! It wasn’t one of hers.
You see, my Grandma bakes her famous chocolate chip cookies for every occasion….Christmas, guests visiting from Texas, graduations, etc. She’s famous for them (at least in her circle). She’s always got a batch or two in the freezer. She always makes a fresh batch when you’ve arrived from out of town. You get the picture.
I’m pretty much a traitor.
Why am I confessing this? Because if you love chocolate chip cookies just a little bit, you’ve got to try the Chocolate Chip Cookies Dunked in Milk Chocolate from Sweet Signatures. I’m not kidding…….chocolate chip cookies aren’t even my favorite type of cookie, but these…..OH MY! They melted in my mouth. The milk chocolate coating is extremely thick too…..no skimping here. They even use premium ingredients like butter (no margarine or shortening). Love that.
But I’m confessing this for another reason. I’m absolutely impressed with this company. Shocked even. You see, Sweet Signatures has created an entire line of Pink Ribbon gourmet products. You can find Chocolate Covered Gourmet Brownies for the Cure, Chocolate Covered Heath Crunch Cookies for the Cure, Chocolate Covered Oreos for the Cure, Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Pops for the Cure and even more!
BUT, WHAT’S AMAZING? 100% of the proceeds from their For the Cure Gourmet Items are donated to the Susan G Komen for the Cure during the month of October.
Quite simply impressive. Many companies donate money to support breast cancer research, but Sweet Signatures donates 100% of the proceeds. I recently had a chat with the owner, Monica Archondo, and asked her why.
Monica explained that she too had been touched by breast cancer. While not in her immediate family, a close family friend had developed breast cancer and she wanted to help. She took some of her gourmet products (chocolate covered of course) and added pink ribbon sprinkles to them. She figured that if someone was purchasing goodies with pink ribbon sprinkles on them….there was a story there. Either it was for a charity event, for a survivor, for someone going through treatment, etc.
Not only does Sweet Signatures donate 100% of proceeds of the “for the cure” line during October, but they remain committed to the cause during the rest of the year by donating product at special events, donating money, or any other creative way they think of.
Not only was I able to try the Pink Ribbon Chocolate Covered Chocolate Chip Cookies, but my family and I were also spoiled with the Pink Ribbon Chocolate Covered Graham Crackers. Delicious. We went for the milk chocolate, but there are dark chocolate options too. As you can see, a little girl I know just couldn’t wait to get her hands on them. 🙂
