Name That Bonbon! Chocolate South Coats Confection Contest with Sweet Rewards

Elvis bonbon at Chocolate South
What’s in a name? At Chocolate South, nomenclature reflects fine ingredients plus a thick slathering of Southern traditions. Each chocolate-laden bite renders riches of premium ingredients and liqueurs, organic cream and spices, and local finds like Georgia pecans. How to describe such bonny bonbons? Hold a “Name that Bonbon!” contest. 

Through May 1, stop by the shop on Atlanta’s Westside, sample the yet-to-be-named confection and fill in one of the special entry cards with your suggested moniker (and your name, of course, in case you win). Chocolate South will select a winner to receive recognition on the Chocolate South Facebook page, in their newsletter and display case; a Southern Culture Box containing one each of Ray, Elvis and “Allmand” Brothers from the Southern Musician Collection and Scarlett, Scout and Stella from the Southern Literature Heroines Collection; and a $25 Chocolate South gift certificate. Feeling the sweet rush already! 

(Rules: Up to two entries per person and one entry per visit. Bonbon sample is free of charge -- one sample per entry per visit. Entries will be judged on originality and appropriateness; earliest date wins if duplicates.)

Shake Up the End of Your Summer by Entering the Mayfield Below Zero Hero Contest

Summer days have been so hot lately that it’s almost too hot to go outside. One way to cool down is by creating your very own delicious milkshake. Mayfield Dairy is hosting its Second Annual Mayfield Dairy Millkshake Recipe Contest until August 15. By submitting your recipe at, you have the chance to win a $10,000 grand prize and enjoy your ultimate milkshake creation. The Atlanta-based dairy churned out a survey that should provide some helpful tips for you when you create your milkshake masterpiece. The shakedown discovered that Americans prefer to blend their shakes with fresh fruit such as strawberries (#1) and bananas (#2) over candy. Contrary to stereotypes about women and chocolate, slightly more males than females go for chocolate add-ins. Make sure you submit your recipe by August 15 and visit the contest's website, Facebook or Twitter (@IceCreamFun) pages for recipes and tips!

A panel of culinary judges will pick the top 10 recipes nationally based on overall appeal, originality and taste. The recipes will be posted online on August 25 for consumers to taste test and vote on, and winners will be announced in early September. First place winner slurps up $10,000, second place $3,000 and third place $1,000, so grab your ice cream, milk and a little creativity and start shaking up your kitchen!
