It’s the beginning of a new year! To start 2008 off right, we wanted to introduce to you sweetriot! Made with all natural ingredients, sweetriot’s “peaces” — little nibs of roasted cacao bean, covered in dark chocolate — come in handy little tins that are perfect for carrying anywhere with you. Rather than sticking a chocolate bar in your purse and fear that it may melt, or that you’ll overeat, these cacao nibs are convenient, neat and absolutely delicious!

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, this week’s prize, sweetriot’s Lovers Pack makes a great V-day gift. The Lovers Pack is a variety pack of three tins: flavor 50, Flavor 65, and Flavor 70. Make sure your loved one is always stocked with something a little sweet!

You can buy sweetriot goods online or check here for a list of retailers.

Thank you, sweetriot, for this week’s Baking Friday contribution!

i swear this is not ploy to win this week’s baking fridays, but when i need a little pick me up i go straight for the dark chocolate!

When I need a little boost of energy I walk a block to Spoon (on 20th). They have miniaturized muffings, scones, and pain au chocolat. One of those and a cup of tea and I’m back in business!

If I’m totally run down from lack of fuel, I go for a packet or handful of nuts, usually raw almonds. Seems to do the trick. I’d like to think that dark chocolate does the same, but I’m not sure it does, for me… But often I’ll eat it anyway! :-)

A simple teaspoon of the finest Canadian maple syrup from a farm in southern Ontario. The energy burst trails off very gradually ….

I soak coca leaves in Red Bull for about three hours and then chew on the leaves for 15 minutes. Amazing rush!!

Nuts and dried cranberies. Or, if we can consider a beverage eating, anything with expresso in it or a tall glass of water. Wakes you up for sure.



Jan 18, 10:00 AM

a banana usually does the trick for me or a handful of dried cranberries


Jan 18, 10:02 AM

A handful of nuts or chunk of cheese does it for me.


Jan 18, 10:13 AM

I always try to keep a pack of PeeledSnacks at my desk (the plu-what? is my fave). At home, I hide (from myself) hershey kisses or mini reeses in the fridge or freezer. Just one will make me happy.


Jan 18, 10:20 AM

A piece of baguette sandwiched with dark chcolate – always works!


Jan 18, 10:23 AM

real fruits, unsalted mixed nuts, and a cup of joe always do the trick.


Jan 18, 10:51 AM

A banana, dark chocolate or PeeledSnack. Or yogurt – that can really hit the spot!


Jan 18, 11:02 AM

Pick me up: It’s a package of the spice of life that gets me “picked up”. I think we can all take a spoon full of life and get that much desired pick me up? A hot cocktail (rum toddy from the Flatiron Louge) isn’t a bad second place pick me up either.


Jan 18, 11:07 AM

I like to go the Kefir route. I’ll chug a glass (pomegranate is the flavor du jour), and then I usually feel great! mmmm nice-n-tangy!


Jan 18, 11:23 AM

I like a handful of chocolate-covered espresso beans for a little zing in the middle of the day, especially after lunch, when I seem to need it most. And with a steamy cup of chai tea, I’ll be ready for anything!


Jan 18, 12:17 PM

peanut butter and dark chocolate


Jan 18, 12:58 PM

Hawaiian pizza… drizzled with malagueta pepper-infused olive oil. Sweet, savory, and spicy – your taste buds will truly get a pick-me-up!


Jan 18, 03:08 PM

Concentrated fresh ginger tea wil take you a long way


Jan 18, 04:02 PM

actually, water, and lots of it, is the best pick me up!
