Review and Giveaway: The Madeline Chocolate Company
We never like to pass an opportunity up to review chocolate in our house as who doesn't LOVE chocolate??
The Madeline Chocolate Company was established in 1949, and have dedicated themselves to perfecting the superior tasting and quality chocolates.They really have! Their chocolates are so smooth tasting.They use fine ingrediants to make their chocolates and the finished products are nicely presented- with most of their chocolates wrapped as well in a quality Italian foil.They sell everyday chocolates as well as chocolates for special occasions. It is REALLY hard to limit yourself to eating these when they taste soooo good. Trust me, they aren't your regular box store chocolates, but can be found in selected retailers as well as online.
Chocolate for the senses
Of course, once you bring home your chocolate, you can use all five senses to determine the quality – if this is a chocolate you’re going to buy again.
1.Savor the aroma
The moment the product is unwrapped, a strong chocolate fragrance will waft through the air to the delight of your sense of smell.
2.Hear the “snap”
Like the crack of a bat hitting a home run or a tennis racquet serving an ace, the chocolate should snap when you break it or bite into it. That’s the sound of a true high quality chocolate product.
3.Feel the texture ("Mouthfeel")
Chocolate melts at 97°F. Its melting point is so close to that of the human body, it begins to melt the moment you place it in your mouth. That velvety texture you enjoy is the result of the chocolate melting evenly, without any lumps or graininess.
4.Taste the full-bodied flavor
The rich, chocolatey flavor of gourmet chocolate cannot be duplicated. No wonder it has been referred to throughout history as “the food of the gods.” No wonder more chocoholics are born every day.
5.Enjoy the afterglow
Premium chocolate leaves a pleasant, mellow taste. Solid, hollow, combined with other flavors, it is a delicacy to be savored.
The Madeline Chocolate Company would love to give away to one lucky reader from Canada or the USA,an assortment of their fine chocolates.A random draw held by Random.org will be made on July 28,2011 from all entries recieved.
