Review: Godiva Chocoiste Pearls with Mint

GODIVA.jpgGodiva Chocoiste Pearls are, as the name implies, pearl-sized pellets of dark chocolate decadence as only Godiva can do it. If you're able to eat one at a time (a big "if"), you'll notice how much flavor there is packed into these little chocolate BBs. You get the nice, albeit tiny, bite and chew of a good dark chocolate, without it being at all chalky. And the mint flavor is really subtle, almost giving it light berry undertones, which was very enjoyable.

The pearls come in mini-tins, which are great for convenience and portability. The problem is that they also lend themselves to pouring the whole tin of pearls into your mouth at the same time. Not that we'd do that, of course...

You can get a 3-pack of the Godiva Dark Chocolate Pearls at Godiva Chocolatier.

They also happen to be offering a Valentine's Day Special - you can get $10 off your order of $50 or more. OFF ON ORDER OF $50 OR MORE offered by Godiva Chocolatier. Just enter "CHOCVDAY" at checkout.

Chocolate Trends from 2007

As 2007 draws to a close, ConfectioneryNews.com takes a look at some of the trends that dominated the chocolate industry this year.

Trend #1: Healthy confectionery and functional ingredients
Lots of manufacturers have added functional "healthy" ingredients, our favorite being from Mars,
CocoaVia Chocolate Snack Bars- CocoaVia contains heart healthy Vitamins B6, B12, Folic Acid, Antioxidants C and E, and is an excellent source of Calcium.

Trend #2: Luxury and premium chocolates
But let's not let this healthy thing get out of hand...there's plenty of super-rich, super-yummy chocolate out there as well this year. One of our favorites is a classic, Godiva Chocolates.

Trend #3: Ethical chocolate
This means Fair Trade chocolate. One really quality piece of fair trade chocolate is the Theo Dark Chocolate Bar - Fair Trade Chocolate from Ghana.
