Today, Streetstylechi gets a little personal. Valentine’s day 2014. My boyfriend insisted on keeping our plans for the night as a surprise, so hand in hand, we trotted through the snow into the unknown; which turned out to be a food and wine pairing at Pastoral, our favorite neighborhood spot. Already giddy from the romantic atmosphere and perfect dinner, I told him about how every Valentine’s day, my father would get me a box of Godiva chocolate covered strawberries. A huge smile spread across his face. When we got home, a big box of Godiva strawberries magically appeared out of the fridge. I immediately ate three, and thought about how lucky I was.
Godiva has always had a very soft spot in my heart. Every Valentine’s day, my dad would always bring home the heftiest box of chocolates he could, and strawberries just for me. When my family would make trips to OakBrook mall, you can bet on anything that we made a stop at the Godiva store. This is how I discovered the Trufflelata, a fresh twist on a frozen shake that has a GODIVA truffle in every sip, and a premium Belgian Soft Serve. So, basically this is heaven in a cup.
No time for lunch before class? Clearly this is a great excuse to eat Godiva’s soft serve as a meal, my personal favorite being the chocolate.
With this being said, all of these chocolate splurges can get pricey, which is why I would take advantage of the Godiva happy hour. This is also why you should enter the Date With Godiva contest for a chance to win one of five, $25 gift cards. Simply comment on this post answering the question; “What was your most memorable summer fling?”
I will be picking my favorites, so show me what you’ve got! Good luck!
