Wine and chocolate? There are two sides to the issue. On one hand, chocolate should be avoided when doing serious wine evaluation because the sugar and oils in the chocolate coat one's palate and interfere with perception.
On the other hand, chocolate is just plain fun and totally yummy with red wine. So for many people, chocolate is a welcome treat on a wine tasting weekend, when our weekday button-downed rules are meant to be broken, or at least ignored.
As wineries, we are always looking for the next great branding item to give away or sell in the tasting room. So why not edible images on chocolate? The party favor square pictured above is just the right size for a label image. Tasty Image, a chocolate company that prints images (including photos) on chocolate can also print your label or winery image on business cards, lollipops and hanging ornaments.
Branded chocolates are a nice addition to gift lines, and they're also great as a thank you gift for big buyers, loyal wine club members, wholesale clients, and sales reps.
Tasty Image is a client of mine, which means a little sumpin' sumpin' extra for you! Use the links provided here and use code SOLID10 on checkout to receive a 10% discount on your order.
If you are interested in placing larger orders (like, after the first order of chocolate disappears in about a day) let me know and I will set you up with affiliate/wholesale pricing.
Imaged chocolates are delivered by FedEx in protective, insulated packaging.
