So Godiva, following in the footsteps of its less esteemed cousin Starbucks, has come out with a new chocolate drink called Chocolixir. Details are sparse, but the drink can be ordered both hot and cold. The "Cold Chocolixir" comes in a 12 oz. size and 3 flavors:
The "Hot Chocolixir" comes in a 8 oz size with only 1 flavor:
The cold version costs $4.50 while the hot one is $3.50. I'm not quite sure why there's a difference in size between the hot and cold version. Do people drink more when the drink is cold?
The important news here is that some Godiva stores will have free samples of the drink on Jan 19th and 20th. You can find out whether there's one near you by going here.
One of the blog's readers (Thanks RheAnn) pointed me to the Memphis Chocolate Fantasy being held on Jan 28th as a benefit for the National Kidney Foundation of West Tennessee. It's got some cool presenters, including Frederick Schilling of Dagoba Chocolates. He's going to be giving a talk on "The Trend towards Sustainability". All in all, it's quite an interesting bunch of people that the NKF folks have managed to get together.
Now, if I only Memphis was closer...
