Today’s post is, you guessed it, Valentine’s Day themed! But if you are looking for Candy Hearts and Chocolate Kisses, go elsewhere (except don’t, please stay…love me), because I have a less traditional approach.
This post is based on a little game I made up to test your compatibility to your partner.
This is how you play:
1-Toss a coin with your honey. Heads gets candy, tails gets the wine.
2-Part ways and choose wisely. No texting back and forth and no peeking! What would Cupid say?
3-Reunite to sip, chew, and enjoy
Lacking a perfect date for your new beau? Good thing you stumbled upon this blog.
This is how the game went down for Sam & me.
Let the love begin.
The Candy: Almond Joy, Snack Size
The Wine: Beringer Zinfandel 2011 (like the bunny kitsch?)
The PERFECT pair that would determine the fate of our relationship
The wine is sweet, rich, and a bit tart (just like me right?). There’s a pleasant aftertaste, but it’s slightly too ripe for me.
An Almond Joy is mostly chocolate and coconut at first. This combo mixes well with the Zin, but it doesn’t stand out as anything exceptional. The nuttiness of the almond adds a more diverse flavor palet. The pair is OK and I wouldn’t say no to it, but I think we can do better by coconut in the future.
What does this say about our love?
We both chose perfectly mediocre candy/wine with a mediocre result. What if I chose a $100 bottle or Sam chose a high-end candy? How out of sync would that be?
So the answer is: our love is here to say (thanks Sam, you are a real sport…love you)
