It's been an emotional week at The Modern Gal's place of employment, which I'll get into later. But still, imagine my delight when I saw an e-mail pop into The MG's inbox earlier today announcing 'free Godiva chocolate.'
Umm .. yes, please.
Apparently November is 'Truffle Month' and to celebrate, Godiva stores are giving away a complimentary truffle from their new Legacy Truffle Collection. You can also get $5 off your purchase of $25 or more all day long. I don't know much about the Legacy Truffle Collection, but the PR pitch claims it features Godiva's most iconic and delicious truffles, hand-selected by the company's chef chocolatiers. I don't know what a chef chocolatier is, but I'm pretty sure I want to be one.
And on the occasion of 'Truffle Month,' here is some truffle trivia:
-- Approximately 17 million Godiva Truffles are sold each year
-- Approximately 47,254 Godiva Truffles are consumed each day
-- 1,969 Godiva Truffles are consumed every hour
-- 33 Godiva Truffles are consumed every minute
Now go forth and eat chocolate ... free chocolate.
