Dove Chocolate Discoveries Kit Review and Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 10/18

October is Women’s Small Business Month which as a mom blogger is a theme near and dear to my heart. I’m working towards providing an additional income for our family without having to leave my children in daycare. Dove is providing moms with the luxury of starting their own business with their direct sales company Dove Chocolate Discoveries. Similar to the ideas of Pampered Chef, Creative Memories, Scentsy, etc., Dove Chocolate Discoveries allows “chocolatiers”  to generate income by sharing their enthusiasm for chocolate in the homes of party hosts. They also sponsor School Fundraisers!

Thanksgiving and Christmas are coming up quickly! The 1 1/2 pds. of milk and dark chocolates are perfect for baking! I read that another blogger thought the Chocolate Mousse Mix was awesome! I haven't had a chance to try it yet.

The starter kit (pictured above) is a $200 value which costs $79 for a limited time. The kit contains everything you need to become a chocolatier and get started with your first three tasting parties:

1½ Pounds of Milk Chocolate
1½ Pounds of Dark Chocolate
4 Chocolate Mousse Packets
1 Chocolate Martini Mix Bottle
6 Chai Tea Packets
1 Blue Heart-Shaped Fondue Set
1 Truffle Fudge Brownie Mix
1 Box Chocolate-Covered Almonds (one bag of milk chocolate-covered almonds, and one bag of dark chocolate-covered almonds!)

Printed Material
1 Welcome Pack
1 Tasting Party DVD
1 Share the Sweet Life DVD
25 Host Coaching Guides
25 Tasting Party Invitations
25 Fall/Holiday Catalogs
25 Fall/Holiday Entertaining Guides
50 Order Forms

Would you like a chance to Win your very own Dove Chocolate Discoveries Kit? Of Course YOU do!!! There is NO obligation to buy anything or to become a host. Just a chance for you to check out the Dove Chocolate Discoveries products and kit, and decide for yourself if you want to become a Dove Chocolate Discoveries "Chocolatier" Consultant!

Follow Dove Chocolate Discoveries on Facebook and Twitter!

If you are chosen as the winner of this Giveaway, you will have 24 hours to respond to my email, as I HAVE to submit the winner's address ASAP. I won't be waiting to choose the winner when this giveaway ends or you won't get your Dove Discoveries Kit.

Disclosure: I wrote this review while participating in a campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of DOVE Chocolate Discoveries and received a Starter Kit to facilitate my review.

So this took up my time yesterday and today dealing with them, our own two dogs, my kiddos, and keeping my house clean. Everything was nice and clean for my MIL and our son's 4th birthday party, and I vowed to keep it clean, clean from now on. Wish me luck!
