Two of the most popular ingredients in the world — wine and chocolate — enjoy a wonderful marriage in a product made in Holland called ChocoVine. (

The concept of combining a quality French cabernet wine with dark chocolate and Dutch cream results in a wine variety that can be savored as a liquid dessert, poured over ice cream, or used in blended cocktails. We recently experienced the original chocolate variety as well as the delicious raspberry offering. A glass of ChocoVine make a lovely sweet treat at the end of the day, served chilled neat or on the rocks. A splash or two also makes a decadent topping for vanilla or coconut ice cream. ChocoVine is a must-have for anyone who loves fine wines and authentic tasting chocolate!

It’s not always convenient to have a cup of coffee or a glass of your favorite cola at the ready, but new Energems ( are a convenient way to boost your energy level with B-vitamins and caffeine. Just three of these delicious, bite-sized chocolate candies are equal to the caffeine content of one cup of coffee, along with a healthy dose of Vitamins B6 and B12 for energy.

Energems come in three flavors, peanut butter, chocolate and mint (our favorite), packaged in a resealable box that easily fits inside pocket, purse, gym bag or school locker. They satisfy your sweet tooth along with providing essential daily nutrients and a jolt of eye-opening caffeine, at a low 15 calories per gem. Rather than grabbing for a candy bar with no nutritional value, next time grab an Energems for some “Great Tasting Energy” packaged in a hard-shell covered chocolate disc featuring authentic milk chocolate.

The flavor of mint is synonymous with winter’s cold blast and is a favorite for use on holiday menus. Sonic Drive-Ins ( are keeping pace with the festivity of this holiday season by offering several limited time Holiday Mint Desserts.

Stop by soon to enjoy a creamy and delicious whipped cream topped Chocolate Holiday Mint (our favorite) or Vanilla Holiday Mint Shake, complete with red and green sprinkles. The Chocolate Holiday Mint Molten Cake Sundae is large enough to share with two or three others and is a fantastic combination of rich minty chocolate cake combined with velvety smooth ice cream and plenty of luscious real whipped cream as the finishing touch. But like winter’s ice and snow, these new holiday desserts at Sonic will soon melt away, so don’t miss out on trying one of these merry new dessert additions. Easy to transports home, too, for less fuss on your dessert buffet.
