Wine and Chocolate Are Perfect Pair

Two of my favorite things in life are wine and chocolate. What could be better than pairing the two together? Unfortunately, it is not that easy. You can’t just take a Hershey bar and eat it while drinking a glass of chardonnay. Different types of wine match with different types of chocolate. How can you be sure that you are pairing them properly?

Join a Wine Club

My best suggestion to you is to join a wine club that provides tasting notes for the wines. You will get to explore different types of wine each month (or quarter, depending upon the club), and the best wine clubs will tell you exactly what matches the wines. I’m typically a white wine drinker but have come to understand that dark chocolate (my preference) usually pairs better with red wine. (If you need help, check out the Top Red Wine Clubs posted at Wine Club Reviews and Ratings.)

Rosa Regale and Dark Chocolate

My very favorite is pairing Rosa Regale (Banfi Rosa Regale Brachetto) with dark chocolate. I initially discovered Rosa Regale while on a Disney Cruise and have been in love with it ever since. It is a little bit pricey, though, and something that I tend to reserve for special occasions. Outside of wine clubs, it is the only time that I have discovered a great wine pairing on my own.

If you are a fan of both wine and chocolate, take a little bit of time to get educated about how best to enjoy them together. You will not be disappointed!

Best Chocolate Popcorn Ever (Popcornopolis Review)

Chocolate Popcorn from Popcornopolis

Chocolate Popcorn from Popcornopolis

I consider myself a bit of a chocolate covered popcorn expert. I’ve tried everything from Boy Scout popcorn to homemade chocolate popcorn balls. But this year I found my all-time new favorite, Popcornopolis! Although they have a number of great flavors (some of the odd people in my family prefer the savory over the sweet), by far my favorite is their signature Zebra.

Zebra Chocolate popcorn is caramel popcorn drizzled with stripes of dark chocolate and white chocolate. Normally I am not a fan of white chocolate, but there is something about this combination that makes it the absolute best popcorn I have ever tasted. I’m not even the type that gets popcorn at the movie theatre. If it doesn’t have the right kind of chocolate on it, I don’t bother. Zebra Chocolate is definitely the right kind of chocolate.

If you are more of a purist, Popcornopolis also has a Chocolate Caramel that is the same but without the white chocolate. But I really encourage you to try the Zebra, because it’s 10X better than it even sounds. They also have a Rocky Road if you like nuts (almonds in this case) in your caramel corn. The Rocky Road also has pieces of marshmallow. For a limited time, they have Candy Cane Crunch, which is dark and white chocolate infused with peppermint and a dusting of crushed candy canes. I have not tried that one yet, but it is on my list!

Lastly, they have a chocolate with peanut butter. I’m not a fan of peanut butter, so I did not even try it. I did buy a bag of it for the rest of my family and it disappeared within a day, so I am guessing that it was pretty good!

I do have to caution you about the “pickers” in the group. When you put out a bowl of this chocolate popcorn, keep an eye out for the people who immediately try to grab the big chunks of popcorn stuck together with extra chocolatey goodness. You’ll know what I mean when you dig into the bag. And if you are one of the “pickers,” make sure that you grab the bag first and pull out those big chunks before anyone else has the chance.

If you are looking for a great gift idea, Popcornopolis is the way to go. I actually buy it now every time I am entertaining groups of friends and have become kind of known for serving it. They have great coupons on their site and you can also use this code of ours DELISH20 to take 20% off any order if they are not running a better deal on their site.

The consistency of the dipped jelly bean is a little bit like a chocolate covered raisin only with a yummy flavored jelly bean on the inside rather than a dried out grape.

The Dark Chocolate Orange Slices are Sunkist naturally flavored candy orange slices (made with orange juice) and are also covered in dark chocolate.

NFL Candy from M&M’s

As if M&M’s were not already perfect enough, you can now get them with your favorite NFL team on them! When you go to the site, you first choose your favorite team (for me, that is the Pittsburgh Steelers, but we can all agree to disagree). Once you select your team, you will see which M&M’s will be included. The Steelers M&M mix has a white and a gold each with our emblem as well as a gold one with “Steelers” in black and a regular black one with an “m” on it. Some of the other teams actually had 4 colors of candy rather than 3.

After choosing your team, you have to decide how you want them packaged. You can get a themed 7oz bag, a dispenser with your team’s logo and 3 7oz bags, or 5 pounds in bulk.

Right now is a particularly good time to get the NFL M&M’s because they are 10% off. But that deal won’t last long, so you had better order quickly! Click here to see all of the NFL M&M’s.
