It’s Like a Yoo-hoo for Adults

I will go ahead and throw my hat in the ring and declare myself a conformist and present you with a Valentine’s Day treat along with the millions of other food bloggers. I have to at least give you one VD goodie, right? Well here it is, this totally classy (cheesy) bottle of ChocoVine. Chilled. It’s red wine and chocolate. Total junk, but I love the stuff. So pass up on Yoo-Hoo’s and go for the ChocoVine this Valentine’s Day. Some one will love you for it. I have no idea who, but someone.

More VD Treats…
Valentine’s Day Candy Leis– no comment
Knock You Naked Valentine Brownies – do not eat at the office
Chocolate Pots de Creme– swoon
Bananas Foster– for that fiery relationship

I guess it’s a bad thing to shorten Valentine’s Day to VD.

    Oh my gosh, I had forgotten all about this stuff! I love it! Our Wine & Spirits store had it on sale last year – I think I bought 6 bottles and enjoyed every last one of them over the last year (a guilty pleasure for sure). But, it's all gone now and I will have to go see if they have gotten more in stock.

    I've seen this at the stores for awhile and wondered about how it tasted. Worth a try, eh?

    I was watching the Ellen show one day and she had this on her show because she thought it was a ridiculous idea. I was thinking I'd like to try it! I found a port with chocolate extract (called Cocoa Vin) at Mission Mountain Winery in Dayton, MT and it is just heavenly. I'm going to look for the ChocoVine and give it a try!

    HA! Sounds good. I did wonder why you were talking about VD and then I realized you meant Valentine's Day. Then I laughed some more!

    We discovered this stuff early last year and stumbled on the raspberry version while in NOLA in August – we like them both.

    Robin, where do you buy it? I live in your area so if it's local that would be awesome.

    Kris- I found it at Wegman's. Also Total Wine caries it. I did not know it cam in flavors until I did this post, will have to hunt those down!

    The main course could be "bacon beer" (which is really smoked beer like these,, with which I'm guessing you are familiar).

    In addition to the ChocoVine, toss in any number of some aperitifs, and digestifs for a real "liquid lunch."

    Laughed out loud, too, at the VD abbreviation.
