The perfect wine for Halloween

The perfect wine for Halloween

  I have the perfect wine for you to try while you are handing out candy to the little goblins on Halloween and especially if you are going to be nibbling on some chocolate yourself (don’t worry – I won’t tell). ChocolatRouge is the name of the wine. Also perfect for Halloween parties, chocolate tasting parties, dessert courses, etc. Hubby and I tried two of the varieties. Yes, again my work is hard, but I suffer through it for you all. You’re welcome. The lighter ChocolatRouge has cream in it and is to be served cold or over ice. This … Continue Reading →

Hubby gets me truffles whenever he buys me Godiva chocolates, they are a a favorite of mine always. I waited until the Twitter party … Continue Reading →

Yes, that is what I said GODIVA CHOCOLATE VODKA! This has got to be one of the best sounding Twitter parties ever in my book. Plus, I was lucky enough to be asked if I would like some samples. After twisting my arm really hard, NOT, I said yes. FedEx tried to deliver today but I was in the shower and it needed a signature – ack! Even though we are starting to get freezing rain Hubby drove me down to the FedEx office to pick up my package. There are bottles of Godiva Chocolate Vodka and Godiva Raspberry Chocolate … Continue Reading →
