I’ve never had the pleasure of tasting Taza Chocolate, mostly because I don’t have access to a car while I’m at school, and shipping chocolate can get pretty expensive. I heard about it from my friend Nana, who tried it and loved it so much that she just had to email me about it, so it’s definitely on my list of things to look for next time I can get to a Whole Foods.
Apparently, the company is running an interesting contest through Facebook that both promotes their product and their Facebook presence. From their photo album description:
Two-time Olympian Roald Bradstock, dubbed the “Olympic Picasso”, has become something of a sensation on the internet for throwing household objects over impossibly long distances and then posting the videos to YouTube.
Apparently, he’s something of a chocolate lover, so when we asked him if he’d throw a Taza Chocolate Mexicano disc, he jumped at the chance.
So, how far can Roald throw Taza Chocolate? We want YOU to guess. Send a picture of yourself holding your guess to firstname.lastname@example.org or post it to the Fan Photos section of our Facebook page. The person whose guess is closest without going over will win a free box of tasty Taza treats. And we’ll post video of the throw on our site.
We’ll continue to take entries right up until the day he throws our chocolate. If we get the same guess from two different people, we’ll take the one submitted first, so make sure to check out the other guesses! Oh, and don’t worry if a Taza employee somehow guesses right – we’ll take the next closest guess. Good luck!
No idea how long the contest will run for, so get your guesses in ASAP!
