Chocolate Tasting Party Recap
When I first planned my chocolate tasting party, I just thought I’d invite a couple of people over to taste my yummy new chocolates from World Market and watch Chocolat. Then I did a little research, and I found out that there is actually a very specific way that you’re supposed to taste chocolate.
Chocolate tasting is a sensory experience, it includes all 5 senses: sight, smell, sound, feel and taste.

The Chocolate: Apparently there’s some debate over whether you are supposed to taste chocolate from dark to light or light to dark. Our method was much more arbitrary, I basically just placed them randomly, according to how I thought they would taste best.
Cleansing the palate: Room temperature water (sparkling or flat), green apples and unsalted crackers are best to cleanse the palate. I also added some yummy compliments to chocolate like Strawberries, pretzels, and angel food cake.
Overall, this little party was so much fun! I highly recommend that you get your friends together to try it. Everyone agreed that we experienced chocolate in a whole new way. It really was a sensory experience (especially the Vosges Red Fire Bar) 😉
The favorites were: 1. Vosges Red Fire Bar 2. Sharffenberger Milk Chocolate Nibby Bar and 3. New Tree Tranquility Lavendar Bar.
The least favorites were: Vosges Oaxaca Bar and the Theo Bread & Chocolate bar. They were, very “interesting”.
