ChocolateBet: October 6, 2010

Chocolate of the Day:

1 serving
Cocoa Diva's Chocolate Bar
"Pairs with Port" tasting chocolates
Very Good
Weight: 1.4 oz. (40 g.) / 3.5 oz. (100 g.) (estimates) for 1 rectangular tin
Calories: 190 calories (estimate) for 1 serving
Cost: $7.00 donation (bought at an event)
Purchased from: Cocoa Diva's booth, at the Waterfront Festival - Art, Wine, and Chocolate, in Suisan Bay, CA

Cocoa Diva's specialty is pairing wines and chocolates. Their rectangular tins were chock full of small, round pieces of chocolate specially formulated to pair well with specific red wines. In this case, the 54% cocoa chocolate discs were paired to go with port.

To test this claim, I did a port pairing. Conclusion: these small chocolate rounds did, in fact, go well with the port; and they were also quite good by themselves.
