Chocolatour receives five-star review from Readers’ Favorite
Today was a super day for Chocolatour!
The book received a five-star rating from the Readers’ Favorite Reviews and Awards site.
I’ve entered Chocolatour in several categories in the awards, and with any luck, come July 1, 2014, I’ll be announcing that we’re a finalist in the Readers’ Favorite Awards — to be chosen September 1, 2014 .
Here is the review that you’ll see on the Readers’ Favorite site:
Do you know the difference between cacao and cocoa? If you love chocolate but lack the knowledge like me, Pendgracs deftly explains relevant terminologies specific to the world of chocolate in Chapter 1. Novices of the chocolate culture will know what differentiates chocolate makers, chocolatiers, and chocolate masters. Readers will love chocolate in Chapter 2, “Chocogasms and Other Health Benefits of Chocolate”. I do have my personal favorite – Chapter 9, “Sweet Success in Switzerland”, as my two favorite chocolate products are Toblerone and Lindt.
Simply put, Chocolatour: A Quest for the World’s Best Chocolate gives seasoned and new chocolate lovers incomparable insight into the self-indulgent culture of chocolate. It is undeniably an enjoyable and easy read with an appetizing theme boosted by clear, flawless prose. If you plan to travel soon, it is wise to bring this book along. Delightfully, this is only volume one of Chocolatour, so you can look forward to more of Doreen Pendgracs’ mouth-watering quest in the next installment.”
Congratulations Doreen!!! Isn’t this kind of like getting your star on Hollywood Boulevard??? lol!! Fingers crossed for other rewards and recognition of your work!!
Thanks so much, Pat! Every bit of recognition helps, as sooner or later, the right person who can help me take it to the next level will appear on this site, on the phone, or wherever. 🙂

What a great review. You have taken an idea that in my world is unique and have developed it well. I have to say if I did what you did I would get fat and have pimples all over my face, so I admire you. Good luck and I hope you get the award.
Thanks so much, Arleen!
Regarding negative effects on the body: If you eat pure, dark chocolate it is actually GOOD for your skin, your teeth, and weight management! It’s only when chocolate is messed up with large amounts of sugar and unhealthy additives (like wax!) that it becomes something that makes you fat and “spotty” as the Brits would say.
