Well HELLO there Colorado State University - Pueblo!

I can still remember the first day I stepped foot on this campus a few months ago and who would've thought that I'd end up living here for possibly the next four years with amazing friends and my lovely boyfriend. 

Now let's go back into the past. During the open house for CSUP I was a bit nervous because I didn't know what to expect at a university in an unfamiliar city. It was all so exciting and nerve wracking that I didn't know what I should do. It was quite obvious that I was an incoming freshman but I was not ashamed of that idea. In fact, I am grateful that I was nervous because I wasn't alone! This was the same day that I first met my current roommate Ashleigh!  

Who would've thought that we'd have so much in common! Also I don't know if I would've ever believed in the saying #ItStartedWithHELLO until these amazing chocolate bars from Lindt came into my life. 

I'm not unfamiliar when it comes to the classic Lindt truffles but these new bars and flavors are out of this world. I surely did not hesitate to say HELLO to these enticing flavors inspired by classic desserts. First up you have "Strawberry Cheesecake", "Crunchy Nougat", "Caramel Brownie" and "Cookies & Cream". Four different flavors available in three different forms; bars, sticks, and mini stick bags!

Even though I'm not the biggest chocolate fan, I couldn't believe how good the strawberry cheesecake stick was. I absolutely love cheesecake and the filling was so fluffy and decadent that I literally thought for a quick second that I was actually eating a marvelous slice of cheesecake. It was too good to be true and I regret not getting a bar.

Of course now I didn't end up eating all of this chocolate alone. Andrew took charge at the cookies & cream bar and Ashleigh seemed to enjoy the crunchy nougat and caramel brownie.
