There's a tradition (if we may call it that) here at chocri to have a little race when we launch. Yes, you heard correctly - a race. A race between women and men. 'Unfair', you say? Possibly. We'll see if the men have a chance this time!
As we did in Germany when chocri launched in the fall of 2008, we designed a chocolate bar for both a female blogger (Cinnamon Girl, or Reeni, who writes the delicious and fun blog Cinnamon Spice & Everything Nice) and for a male blogger (Dave Cook who's behind the original and clever blog Eating In Translation. The bars we designed are the Cinnamon Girl Bar and the Dave Cook Bar, which can both be found front and center of our Recommended Creations Section.
Starting pretty much when this post goes live, both Reeni and Dave will design one personalized chocolate bar each for two other bloggers - two female bloggers in the case of Reeni, and two male bloggers in the case of Dave. Reeni and Dave - feel free to comment on this blog post who you give what bar to!
Then those recipients will in turn design two bars for two blogger friends of the same gender as well, and the team that reaches 100 bars first - wins!
Here's the rules again in short:
- Please let us know if you received a bar/ designed a bar for two other bloggers - we need to keep track :) You can let us know by commenting on this post and/or by sending me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- When we say "design" a bar for two other bloggers of the same gender, that means you can play with the tool we have, but all you have to give us is a list, such as "Milk chocolate with strawberries, basil and toasted hazelnut for Blog xyz (link) - female blogger abc
- Of course you'll get the chocolate bar that was designed for you! We'll start making them when the race is completed, that is, when both teams completed their 100 bars
- If anything is not clear - post or email me.
Last year, the ladies won. I think the men have a chance this time - but then I'm female... we don't take sides. But you, dear reader, can :)
Enjoy the race! vrooom
