Start The New Year With Champagne And Chruffles

Jan. 7, 2010
The Cholive Co. introduces Cholives and Chruffles, designer chocolates designed to be paired with beverages or eaten alone.

Chocolate is always one of life's little luxuries and a classic when it comes to gift giving and entertaining. Paired with the perfect drink or the perfect company, this simple, yet inexpensive luxury, is simply divine.

Milwaukee-based The Cholive Co.  introduces Cholives, cocktail chocolates, and Chruffles (pronounced Truffles), wine pairing truffles, designed to pair with your favorite beverage or enjoyed as a little tasty treat, and they make a lovely gift any time of the year.

When $100 reserve bottles of wine are outside the budget for a wine enthusiast friend, try Chruffles wine pairing chocolates. The three-piece set includes three of 16 sumptuous flavors available to compliment red, white or champagne varietals. The four-piece set includes a wine-pairing mat so recipients can play their own sommelier.

Cholives, 55 percent Swiss dark chocolate filled with Vermont whole cream ganache, gift sets are sure to suit a range of tastes--from a coworker to the friend that has almost everything, and come with accessory skewers. They pair perfectly with a variety of cocktails and beverages. Even non-drinkers can find enjoyment in the cocktail chocolates, which compliment coffee and tea. To top it off, chocolate aficionados don't need to worry about calories; a Cholive has less than 50 calories per serving (one Cholive).

Suggested retail price for Chruffles is $5.95 (three pieces) or $6.95 (four pieces). Cholives are $5.95 (five pieces) or $7.95 (eight pieces).
