You may have heard of Chocolate Rain, you may have heard of Hot Chocolate if you were born before 1980, and you''ll definitely have heard of hot chocolate, the milk-cocoa combo drink best enjoyed in winter. But have you heard of chocolate wine?
While it might sound like a gimmick, the wine, or Chine, if you will, picked up the "Silver Outstanding" award at the International Wine & Spirit Competition and is described as being closer to a port than a cheeky glass of light Merlot, which is a type of wine for those of you scratching your heads, assuming I'm suddenly talking about a Game of Thrones character. It was described as a "very off-the-wall alternative to port", by The Whiskey Exchange.
The German supermarket seems to be leading the way with Christmas goodies, with a series of hampers ranging from the £19.99 (£26) mark to a more expensive £99.99 (£132), which includes three bottles of wine, a bottle of bubbly, Christmas cake, chocolate, Panettone, pudding, two types of crackers and a packet of mince pies.
Sounds amazing, but I know what I'll be doing this Christmas at around 4pm: listening to Hot Chocolate, drinking chocolate wine. In my special Christmas pants. Fupping bliss.
