It all Started with Hello–18 years later

Thank you to Lindt HELLO for sponsoring this post about it started with Hello; All opinions expressed are 100% my own.

I remember the day exactly, I was packing up one apartment for a move into a new condo. There were boxes everywhere and the phone rang. fortunately because it was on the wall, remember those phones, I was able to find it to answer the call. IT started with Hello, My name is Patrick a friend of Chuck, and have moved to Chicago and was told to give you a call. Not having a piece of paper or pen to write his number, I asked him to call me in a few days when I was settled into my new place.

Well its a good thing he followed up because three years later we married. This August we celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary and for the most part are still having fun as we manuever our way around parenthood, life etc. I shared my first Lindt Hello bar with my love of my life who decided to say hello first.


Do you have a great story of how it all started with Hello?


You can enjoy them in 3 different ways:
• Bars – Lindt HELLO Bars are not your ordinary candy bars. The ten luxuriously filled squares that make up a HELLO bar – each covered in irresistibly smooth premium chocolate – are bite-sized packages of delight for your taste buds.
• Sticks – The Lindt HELLO sticks are trendy treats designed for chocolate lovers on-the-go. With six tasty squares you can savor one by one or enjoy all at once, the sticks are just the right size for satisfying those afternoon cravings.
• Mini-Stick Bags – Taste, share and love! Each bag is filled with bite size Mini Sticks – perfect for sharing with friends or spoiling yourself with the occasional (or daily) chocolate treat.
