In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month Thirsty Girl is teaming up with Ghirardelli for a fabulous Twitter tasting of their “Intense Dark™” chocolates on Oct 5. We’ll be sending chocolate to tasters around the country to tell us their impressions of the Intense Dark experience and share pairing ideas. Head Thirsty Girl Leslie Sbrocco will be on hand to add her own ideas and comments, and we’ll reveal some special video pairing notes too!
You can see why we’re excited to announce this #TGTaste Twitter chat on Wednesday October 5 at 5 PM PST (8 PM EST)

TG Taste is a sponsored program. Wineries/companies pay a fee to Thirsty Girl LLC and each company legally sends product samples to the majority of bloggers/writers. There is no guarantee of positive comments by the tasters during the hour-long twitter taste. The opinions of the bloggers are their own and the conversation is moderated by Thirsty Girl staff. Anyone may join in and express their views on the wines.
