Profile: Awake Chocolates and Meredith Stephens

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at U Maine chapter.

What are the samples?

Samples of “bites” which are mini, owl-shaped chocolates which each contain a half cup of coffee. The full chocolate bars which you can buy at different vendors (locations near you available at http://awakechocolate.com) contain a full cup of coffee.

Do they actually work?

Yes! Even the bites that have the equivalent of ½ cup of coffee are so effective! I can’t eat them past 4 pm or else I’ll be up all night!

How do we get them?

Message me on my social media account for samples at your event or meeting or follow me for updates at events I’ll be at!

Will you get giving them out anywhere else the rest of this semester?

I have no formal events planned but I will be in and out of the library handing them out during the last two weeks! Message me on my instagram account if you can’t find me!

Social media?

My instagram for Awake Chocolate is @awakechocolate_umaine – I post about events I am at and also take direct messages with chocolate requests!

Things you wish you knew at the beginning of your freshman year: Stop caring about what people think about you and start to do things that your friends aren’t necessarily interested in/involved in. When I first came to college the only thing I got involved with was my sorority. While I’ve loved every second of it, there were a lot of clubs and organizations I wish I had joined but didn’t because I was meeting so many people and was overwhelmed with everything and concerned with what people thought about me. I regret not getting involved in clubs that interested me and will definitely try to get more involved next year.
