“We Heart Local” Chocolate Taste-Off: Cutthroat Competition


THE CHOCOLATE TASTE-OFF FINALS: Thomas Haas v. Mink Chocolates v. Chocolate Arts v. ChocolaTas –>


This was my view when news that my chocolate judging abilities were desired for Eat Drink Be Local‘s first annual ‘We Heart Local Chocolate Taste-Off’.

I’d been planning a post-holiday health kick (to counter the daily happy hour of tortilla chips and guacamole), although it was instantly thrown out the window for this: round one of chocolate competition –>

And here’s round two: Mink Chocolates v. Chocolate Arts –>

Stay tuned for the winner of Eat Drink Be Local’s first annual Chocolate Taste-Off, to be announced on Valentine’s Day!
