Our chocolate has a smooth silken texture that melts on the tongue and creates a rich, buttery feel in the mouth
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 25, 2008
The San Francisco Chocolate Factory (http://www.sfchocolate.com) will introduce their newest premium dark chocolates, Cocoa Vinoso™, designed to pair with full bodied red wines, at the Fancy Food Show in New York June 29-July 1, 2008 (Visit Booth #5230).
Only the highest quality cocoa beans imported from around the world are used to create these unique chocolates. The six different cocoa percentages of chocolate are packaged in unique and elegant wine themed tins, each designated with a different complementary red wine pairing to create surprising and satisfying taste sensations.
"We introduced the Wine Lover's Chocolates in 2003 and they are one of our biggest selling chocolates. The new Cocoa Vinoso™ line offers our exquisite gourmet dark chocolate pairings made exclusively to compliment full-bodied red wines. We think these unique chocolates will make a perfect gift for red wine and chocolate lovers alike," said SF Chocolate Factory CEO and founder Mike Litton.
For an optimal experience, the San Francisco Chocolate Factory recommends the following dark chocolate and red wine pairings:
- Cocoa Vinoso™ 55% pairs with Cabernet - Considered by many to be one of the best wine varietals, Cabernet pairs deliciously with this semi-sweet dark chocolate.
- Cocoa Vinoso™ 72% pairs with Zinfandel - This intensely strong chocolate blends best with the powerfully rich flavored Zinfandel.
- Cocoa Vinoso™ 58% pairs with Merlot - Soft and well-rounded chocolate drops complement the Merlot's color and texture.
- Cocoa Vinoso™ 61% pairs with Syrah - The intensity of this dark chocolate balances the spicy and robust Syrah.
- Cocoa Vinoso™ 56% pairs with Pinot Noir - Velvety smooth dark chocolate drops enhance the complex flavors of a Pinot Noir.
- Cocoa Vinoso™ 54% pairs with Port - Exemplifies a classic combination. Port pairs best with sweet and smooth premium dark chocolate.
"Surprising new research finds chocolate contains health-promoting chemicals similar to those in red wine, tea, fruits and vegetables," writes Jean Carper in her Eat Smart column at USA Today.
"Chocolate is rich in cell-protecting antioxidants," Carper writes. "The antioxidants in chocolate help block chemical changes in bad LDL cholesterol that lead to clogged arteries," Carper adds.
The San Francisco Chocolate Factory was created in 1999 to provide chocolate lovers with gourmet-quality, superbly packaged chocolates at non-gourmet prices.
"Since we debuted in 1991, we've become a favorite with San Francisco locals and visitors as well," Litton said.
But the business is expanding beyond the Bay Area in California to other parts of the U.S. and the world, including Canada and Europe.
The factory uses only the finest quality cocoa beans, gathered and imported from three different continents. Only the best beans are selected for consistently superior flavor.
"Our chocolate has a smooth silken texture that melts on the tongue and creates a rich, buttery feel in the mouth," said Litton.
The Cocoa Vinoso™ premium chocolates are packaged in six elegant 5.0 oz wine themed tins. The suggested retail price is $7.50 per tin or $45.00 to purchase a gift set of six tins.
