As you know, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. And if you’re anything like me, if it’s a special day, you HAVE to have great chocolate and plenty of it. Actually, I have to have great chocolate every day, but I digress.
Chocolate doesn’t get any better than Green & Black’s Organic Chocolate – which is why I write about it so frequently here on Get Cooking:
Obviously, I’m hooked. There’s one thing you’ve surely noticed about me by now and that’s that I am extremely Brand Loyal. If I find a brand of chocolate (Green & Black’s), shredded and sliced cheese (Sargentos), Gourmet Cheese (Beemster’s), dishwashing liquid (Dawn), etc. that never lets me down – I never let it down. I stick with it and I praise it to the hilt.
Green & Black’s Organic chocolate most definitely fits this bill. Take it from the world’s most addicted chocoholic – this is top of the line, delicious, creamy chocolate.
We all know that chocolate is a necessity year round, but Valentine’s Day is custom made for it. Nothing says “You’re Special” better than the gift of premium organic chocolate. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Green & Black’s has introduced its first U.S. exclusive flavor to its family of premium organic chocolate bars. Green & Black’s new Peanut bar is a blend of premium 37% milk chocolate with a delectable combination of caramelized peanuts and a hint of sea salt.
How over-the-top incredible does that sound?!?!
Below is an outline of chocolate-y wonderful ideas for celebrating Valentine’s Day the way it was intended to be celebrated. These ideas are courtesy of Green & Black’s and I hope you’ll let them inspire you to go all out this Valentine’s Day.

Singles: Wine and Chocolate Pairing Party
This year, avoid the crowded restaurants and host an intimate wine and chocolate pairing party that your closest friends won’t soon forget. Your guests will fall in love with the latest wine pairings just for Valentine’s Day including:
- Green & Black’s Toffee and Zinfandel
Chocolate, toffee and wine…three of life’s great pleasures. It’s never truer than when pairing the rich, dark-fruit characters in the wine accentuate the chocolate’s buttery sweet toffee flavors.
- Green & Black’s White and Chardonnay
This may just be the world’s perfect pairing. The silky smoothness, creamy texture and vanilla finish of Green & Black’s White is perfectly complemented by the tropical fruit and hint of oak in a classic Chardonnay.
- Green & Black’s Dark 85% and Syrah
Intense! This is the only way to describe the pairing of Green & Black’s Dark 85% and a rich Syrah. The complexity and sturdy structure of the wine softens and enhances the dark, intense chocolate.
Couples: Romantic Chocolate Tasting for Two
There’s nothing better than chocolate to set the mood for a romantic evening for two. Candles and rose petals are great, but nothing will show your special someone they’re the sweetest than a passionate chocolate tasting. Take these tips for an at-home chocolate tasting from Green & Black’s:
- Conduct the tasting like you would a wine tasting
- Choose up to six of your favorite flavours to taste
- Start with the lightest variety (White) and finish with the darkest (Dark 85%)
Green & Black’s is a chocolate that makes no compromises. The great tasting chocolate made from the world’s finest organic ingredients also gives back to the environment.
