A Chocolaty Giveaway!

A Chocolate Lover’s Dream?

IMG_5554

If you read many healthy living blogs, then I’m sure you’ve probably seen these little guys floating around in the blog world. Although I had seen them on occasion through different blogs, I wasn’t “formally introduced” to them until my trip to the Healthy Living Summit this past August. I really enjoyed the disks that I tried while in Chicago, so I was more than excited when the company contacted me and offered to send some samples to try out.

Chocolate?!? YES PLEASE. :-D

IMG_5556

So what exactly is an Adora disk?

Adora disks are a calcium & Vitamin D supplement, with the added bonus of having the taste of premium, all-natural chocolate. Just one Adora disk provides about 50% of your daily calcium requirements.

IMG_5558

Did you know that the average woman is only getting about two-thirds the amount of calcium that they should?

Ladies, we gotta protect these bones of ours!! :shock:

IMG_5555

And for only 30 calories a disk, I’m pretty sure that’s not going to make or break your day. ;)

IMG_5557

Not only are these little guys great for providing the calcium & Vitamin D that we need, but they are seriously delicious and actually taste like real chocolate. Both the dark and the milk chocolate varieties are great, but I think the dark is my favorite. I’ve been adding one in at breakfast lately…because really, who needs an excuse to add chocolate at any meal? :)

If you’ve never tried an Adora disk, don’t say you haven’t been forewarned:

It doesn’t take long to go from this

to this…  (how ‘bout those teeth ridges!) ;)

IMG_5564

to this.

IMG_5566

Adora disks are sold at most CVS stores, as well as many other retailers around the U.S.

But what’s that you say? You read the post title and want to know the real deal??

Well YOU, my friends, are in luck, becauuuuuuuse…it’s GIVEAWAY TIME! :-D

**Adora has offered to send one lucky reader 2 bags of Adora disks (one milk & one dark).**

To Enter:

  1. Leave a comment on this post telling your main source of calcium and if you think you get enough of it.
  2. You can earn an extra entry if you want to Tweet about it too. ;) (i.e., “Check out @SweetToothCourt’s Adora Giveaway”) Just make sure you comment back to tell me you did!

*I will randomly choose a winner on this Friday, October 15th.*

The chance at winning some free chocolate? Well, that definitely ought to put a smile on your face. :)

I’d say my main source of calcium is in plain yogurt, which I really don’t eat often. I fall into the range that needs the most of it too!

5 nomagicjeanie October 13, 2010 at 11:37 am

I know I do pretty good on the calcium front….I enjoy Almond Milk, cheese, yogurt, and I believe leafy greens have calcium too and I get bunches of those in too!

I would love to try these guys! I didn’t realize they were available at CVS…I thought they were a Whole Food buy! :) Good to know that!

6 chocolatensneakers October 13, 2010 at 11:39 am

So… I need to go buy these..asap. Osteoporosis runs in my family (specifically among all the women) and my Momma is always telling me I need more calcium. I have a pill supplement, but it makes me sick to my stomach so I rarely take it. For the most part I get my calcium from milk, I guess.
By the way, good for you for recognizing that you were over-extending yourself and doing something about it :)
No matter how often you post, I love reading your blog.

I am pretty certain that I do not intake nearly the amount of calcium my body requires. Not a huge consumer of anything dairy really. Most of my calcium would be from veggies, and possibly some fruit, like I said, I know I need more, oops !!

Gross! Those suckers are filled with sugar and calcium carbonate, definitely NOT what I would call healthy.

Ladies, let’s get our calcium from other actually healthy sources–ie dark leafy greens.

http://foodboogie.com/ did an interesting post on how we don’t need to take vitamins.

education is key :)

My main source of calicum is greek yogurt. I try to get some source of calicum everyday and I can always use some help!

I am very certain I do not get enough calcium in my diet!

Most of my calcium comes from my milk/yogurt I have with breakfast and any cheese I may have throughout the day … which is not often enough, unfortunately!

I get my calcium through Tums and milk/yogurt…but somedays I forget to take my 2 Tums, so I’m sure I don’t get enough! I would love to have chocolate as my supplement ;)

I get my calcium from fage yogurt, veggies, my multi-vitamin and drinking lots of skim milk. Yummy.

I don’t think I get that much calcium because I don’t like milk, but I eat cottage cheese like it’s my job so I’m sure that makes up for it. And of course any other kind of cheese. I’m a self professed cheese addict.

I get my daily calcium mainly from the calcium supplement that I take, but I would love to try a new supplement…especially one that involves chocolate!!

Currently, my main source of calcium is my calcium + Vit D VitaFusion gummies, greek yogurt, and cheese of course! I don’t drink milk but I still think I get plenty of calcium! :)

135 Sarah October 13, 2010 at 9:40 pm

My main source of calcium these days is the milk that goes into my oatmeal and greek yogurt. It really depends on the day if I think I get enough but I know I would get enough if it came in chocolate form :)

I get most of my calcium from greek yogurt. I’d love to switch out my calcium pill for something more tasty!!

I probably get most of my calcium from my daily yogurt (and that splash of milk in my coffee!). So no, I probably don’t get enough.

143 Kristy Du October 14, 2010 at 1:10 am

I probably only get calcium from my breakfast which is usually nonfat milk in my oats or cold cereal or from my yogurt.

144 Courtney (Pancakes & Postcards) October 14, 2010 at 4:09 am

I don’t think I do get enough… I used to drink milk ALL DAY back in the states but lately I just have a splash with my oats… and it’s so processed i don’t even know how much calcium it even retains (seriously, our milk is good for over a year on the shelf. gross huh?)

I get my calcium from milk, cheese and ice cream :) But I probably don’t get enough of it each day.

This is a great giveaway! I would like to go to the HLS next year, it looks like you ladies had a great time.
I get my calcium from my veggies, actually! I’m a big fan of collards and other cooked leafy greens which are surprisingly high in calcium.

.. Do caramel latttes and london fogs from starbucks count as protein sources, too?

My main source is from these huge horse pills I bought at GNC about a month ago after I threw out my viactiv because they tasted so disgusting! I would LOVE a tasty alternative to my huge calcium supplement!

My main sources are yogurt and cheese. I know I could do better but its tough sometimes. I keep reading about these disks and have been dying to try them.

154 Samantha Robertson October 14, 2010 at 9:52 am

I’d have to say I have two sources, Greek Yogurt and Almond Breeze, but I probably don’t get enough because I almost never eat a full serving of either. It’s more like a little here and a little there.

155 Courtney @ Ice Cream & Wine October 14, 2010 at 11:47 am

I get most of my calcium from greek yogurt and cottage cheese – I also take a women’s multivitamin that has calcium in it. Between all of that, I’m still probably not getting the right amount – and it’s super important that women do get enough calcium!

Reply

156 Kelly October 14, 2010 at 12:03 pm

My main source of calcium is from cow’s milk. However, I pretty much love dairy in all of its forms! I also eat lots of cheese and yogurt which helps too. ;)

157 Lauren October 14, 2010 at 1:14 pm

I get most of my calcium from Chobani yogurt – my fav:) and the occasional glass of milk. I probably don’t get enough, which is why I would LOVE to win the adora disks :D

I get my daily calcium mostly from milk and cheese :) I don’t think I get enough calcium though,probably get about 1/2 my daily amount. Those Adora discs look delicious! I’d love to win them! :D

159 Lindsay October 14, 2010 at 2:25 pm

From yogurt–but I know it’s not enough. I also take a multivitamin. I would LOVE to win the Adora discs. My friend Heather eats one as a dessert almost every night. Calcium + deliciousness=divine

160 Paula October 14, 2010 at 5:50 pm

I’m not sure if I get enough. I take a calcium supplement (usually daily…) and I eat greek yogurt for breakfast everyday. I wonder how much I get from my nightly bowl of ice cream or froyo? :-) Great giveaway and great blog!!!

My main source of calcium is my vitamin…if I remember to take them! I don’t like milk, cheese, or ice cream, so I KNOW I don’t get as much as I should!

I use dairy primarily and enriched westsoy milk!
It isn’t always easy with a busy work schedule, so I also take Ca+ supplements.
