Stop the Traffik: Toot-toot

November 7, 2007 at 3:21 pm | Posted in events, other stuff | 7 Comments


So I didn’t mention this before because I felt a little weird tooting my own horn, but the white chocolate and almond tartufi I made won last month’s Stop the Traffik chocolate competition, hosted by Rachel from R khooks.  I didn’t think I could be more excited when I heard the news a couple weeks ago, until today when I received my prize in the mail! 

Stop The Traffik prize

Rachel sent four bars of fairtrade chocolate and a beautiful card (maybe she even took the photo herself?)!   I am holding both a milk and a dark bar from Monoprix Gourmet and mint (yay!) and almond bars from Alter Eco.  I have never tried any of these, so I’m looking forward to getting down to business and doing some sampling.

Thanks so much, Rachel, for the chocolate bars and for hosting the event!  I’m sure it’s helped to open a lot of eyes to the issue of forced labor in cocoa farming and chocolate production.  And if you have a second, please check out Stop the Traffik’s site for more information on “Traffik Free” chocolate and where to find it.

  1. Congratulations!!

  2. Congratulations!!! They look delicious. What is the best way to find out about food blog events? :0) I have managed to track down some that I want to do, but I’m not sure how to find out about others (other than following links)


  3. Lori- Thanks!

    Tammy- Thank you! Two good sites that list upcoming food blog events are Is my Blog Burning and Sticky Date.

  4. thanks Steph. that is great. I am excited about doing my first challenge – think it will be the cupcake hero one for November

  5. Toot toot away Steph!!! Congratulations, the semifredo looked out of this world tasty!

  6. Of course you had to toot your horn, Steph!
    You won the competition fair and square. I’m glad the chocolate made it to you in one piece (worried it might get damaged, melt on it’s way downunder or be eaten by the postman).
    And yep I took the photo (from a weekend in the french countryside), there are more similar ones, on my new (non foodie) site Khookie bits et bops.

  7. Great to see the support for STT. They’ve just recently won votes on my blog to receive all the donations for a Marathon in NZ. Fundraising has begun: so please feel free to spread the word. Thanks so much for your support!
    Kind regards
