Chocolate Tastings

6cocoa-pods1 Chocolate Tasting 101 – In the Beginning…
Food of the Gods! Health Food? or Candy? Did you know that cacao beans only grow within 20° of the equator? Or, like fine grapes, different beans from different plantations processed by different manufacturers have very different flavour profiles? Chocolate 101 participants will learn the many facets of chocolate, from the bean to the bar, and taste samples of different beans, origins, manufacturers, and percentages of cocoa. And … As we believe that chocolate goes with everything, each night you will taste some of the our bestselling blended bars, such as our Maple caramelized Bacon with Espresso, Lavender, Sea Salt & Triple Peppercorns, Sour Cherry with Chili, and a sumptuous shot of Drinking Chocolate. In addition, participants receive 10% off purchases that eve.
