Aldi Created Chocolate Wine Just In Time for Valentine's Day
Name a more iconic pairing. We'll wait.
Aldi is here to help you spice things up this Valentine's Day. The grocery chain created a delicious mash-up of two of your favorite things: chocolate and wine. Can you think of a more iconic pairing?!
The chocolate wine is apparently full of "dark fruit and decadent dark chocolate flavors," according to Aldi. If that's not enough to convince you, you can always remind yourself of two of our favorite facts: Wine (if consumed moderately, of course) has been proven to help clear up your skin, promote weight loss, and even boost your workout performance. And chocolate? Well, chocolate can help curb cravings and improve heart health, and it's loaded with antioxidants, which can help enhance memory and cognition.
For what it's worth, our friends over at Cooking Light gave the chocolate wine a taste test and found it bears similarities to Nesquik chocolate milk and tastes less like wine and more like vodka. But hey, if you're into chocolate martinis this might be your new favorite dessert-like concoction!
OK. so we're pretty sure Petit Chocolat Wine Specialty won't be your new go-to post-work beverage, but for just $6.99, it's the perfect novelty for all your Galentine's or Valentine's Day plans. If you become addicted, the romantic beverage will be available year-round.
