How’s this for an incentive? Endangered Species Chocolate is conducting an online survey, and the incentive for participating is an entry into a drawing for a year’s supply of chocolate.That’s right, a year’s supply! Just the thought makes me drool.

So what qualifies as a year’s supply of chocolate? Per the fine print:

“The winner of the Grand Prize will be awarded seventy two (72) chocolate bars at one time, one shipment. (ARV: $279.00) (Guaranteed “Enjoy by date” of 12 months). The shipment will consist of twelve (12) bars of the following flavors, Supreme Dark Chocolate, Extreme Dark Chocolate, Smooth Milk Chocolate, Dark Chocolate with Mint, Dark Chocolate with Cranberries and Almonds, and Dark Chocolate with Hazelnut Toffee.”

Depending on your level of chocolate consumption, that may or may not be a year’s supply, but it’s certainly a start. If you’re interested, click here to take the survey. The deadline for entry into the sweepstakes is July 31, 2009.

Another brick in the wall
Would you tell a stranger your password for a bar of chocolate? In a recent survey, 21% of passersby in a London subway station did just that—they told researchers their computer password in exchange for a bar of chocolate. The previous year it was a whopping 64% who gave up their passwords. What I’d like to know is just what kind of chocolate are they offering these people?
