Some things are just too good to pass up! One such temptation can be found at the 2014 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. It is called Ghirardelli Drinking Chocolate and you don't want to miss your chance to try it!
Epcot International Food & Wine FestivalThe 19th annual Epcot International Food & Wine Festival highlights the Fall season at the Walt Disney World Resort by transforming Epcot from September 19 to November 10, 2014. Among the multitude of food and drink offerings to discover is a Hidden Gem tucked away in a corner that can easily be missed by most Epcot Guests.
The Festival Center for the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival is set up inside the former Wonders Of Life Pavilion located between Ellen's Energy Adventure and Mission Space int eh Future World Section of Epcot.
Once inside the Festival Center, in order to find this special treat you need to proceed all the way to the far side of the Pavilion to an area that is not visible from the Entrance.
The section that you are looking for is called: The Chocolate Experience: From The Bean To The Bar presented by Ghirardelli. Inside you will be greeted by a cast member handing out small complementary square of Ghirardelli chocolate, which we will consider an appetizer to the main treat awaiting visitors.
There is a great collection of dioramas created entirely of chocolate that are fun to look at. Pictured above is a model of the new Seven Dwarfs Mine Train Attraction and a great Toy Story scene.
The main event is where they sell the Wine and Drinking Chocolate. This simple little counter is where you can find one of the most amazing tastes in the entire Food & Wine Festival!
Whether you purchase your Ghirardelli Drinking Chocolate with or without the glass of red wine to accompany it, you are in for a treat. The smooth chocolate has a thinner consistency than just a melted chocolate bar, but don't dare confuse this to be your ordinary Hot Chocolate.
The intense warm chocolate flavor is amazing. When combined with alternating sips of the well paired red wine, in this case the Buena Vista Winery (Sonoma, CA):The Count Founder's Red Wine, you have a combination that is absolutely wonderful!
At only $2.50 per serving, the Ghirardelli Drinking Chocolate is something that you cannot afford to pass up!
