Ask someone what their favorite chocolate is, and you'll usually get a brand in response. Whether you're a true foodie or not, chances are good that brand will be Ghirardelli, especially for those who love dark chocolate. Who can resist flavors that conjure images of forbidden indulgences like Midnight Reverie, Toffee Interlude, Twilight Delight, and Evening Dream? To expand the line, Ghirardelli's contest invited chocolate lovers to submit entries that combined up to three ingredients, and gave them the ability creative license to choose the chocolate's intensity as well as name their creation.
Flavors were judged by culinary experts, Alice Medrich, Jonathan Lindenauer, and Kevin Tamaki, who took creativity, flavor appeal, and originality into account. They then narrowed the choices down to the top five: Spicy Pecan, Tahitian Treasure, Hazelnut Heaven, Moonlight Fantasy, and Cherry Bliss. Now you can vote for your favorite, and have a say in which new flavor is added to the Intense Dark chocolate line next.
The winning flavor will be produced by Ghirardelli, and available for you to try in 2011. In the meantime, registering on the site allows you to vote once per day, and qualifies you to win one of thousands of fantastic prizes such as Intense Dark chocolate bars and gift baskets, and don't forget about that year's worth of free dark chocolate. But you can only win if you participate, so head over to the contest site and vote for the next Ghirardelli Intense Dark flavor!
