A Sweet Hello

Hi sweet readers. Today I'm talking about the power of a simple hello. That one word holds so much potential and hope when you stop and think about it.
How do you make new friends? Where do you make connections? Is it at work, during a night out at the best restaurant in town, or while traveling on vacation with your family?
Whether it be out on the town or in a meeting, the connections we make all start with hello.

Some of the very best friends I still have to this day came in to my life with one little word. They are my sweet reminders of how simple life can be. My friends are something I cherish. Chocolate is too. It all started with HELLO.


You probably think I'm crazy comparing my friendships to chocolate, but let me explain.

1. Lindt HELLO, the hip, trendy brand in premium chocolate, is a new collection from Lindt of sinfully delicious premium chocolate inspired by classic American treats. 
My friends are also hip, trendy and enjoy the finer things in life. They are definitely sweet too!

2. The Lindt HELLO collection can be enjoyed 3 different ways: Sticks, Bars, or Mini-Stick Bags.
My friends can also be enjoyed in numerous sweet ways. Friends are there for you emotionally, spiritually, and sometimes by physically being present.

3. There are enticing flavors from the new Lindt HELLO collection: Caramel Brownie, Strawberry Cheesecake, Crunchy Nougat and Cookies & Cream.
My friends come in different varieties also...not one of them is like the other. This spices up our lives and keeps things interesting just like a sweet treat.
