Setting the Stage for Your Chocolate Olympics

Shop Fresh Chocolate and Chocolate Thins.

The Games Begin: Chocolate Tasting and Sensory Activities

1. The Flavour Marathon

Challenge your guests to identify the diverse flavours in Rococo's Chocolates and Truffles assorted boxes.

Provide a selection that includes dark, milk, and white chocolates, each with unique flavour profiles. Encourage participants to savour each piece slowly, noting the initial taste, the evolving flavours, and the lingering finish. Create a scoring system for accuracy and creativity in flavour descriptions.

Pro Tip: Offer palate cleansers like bread or crackers between tastings to reset the taste buds.

2. The Aroma Sprint

Engage the sense of smell with an aroma identification game.

Place small pieces of various chocolates in covered jars, allowing guests to smell but not see the contents.

Ask them to identify the type of chocolate or specific notes such as cardamom, rose, or spice. This activity highlights the importance of aroma in the overall chocolate experience.

Pro Tip: Use a diverse range of Rococo Chocolates to showcase different aromatic profiles.

3. The Texture Relay

Texture plays a crucial role in chocolate tasting.

Create a texture relay where guests rate the mouthfeel of different chocolates.

Provide a mix of silky smooth truffles, crunchy pralines, and melt-in-your-mouth ganaches. Encourage participants to discuss the sensation each chocolate creates, from the initial bite to the final melt.

Pro Tip: Pair contrasting textures to enhance the sensory journey.

Advanced Sensory Activities

4. The Blindfold Challenge

Elevate the experience with a blindfolded tasting challenge.

This activity focuses solely on taste and texture, removing visual cues. It’s a fun way to test the depth of your guests' chocolate knowledge and appreciation.

Offer a prize for the most accurate taster!

Pro Tip: Include a few unexpected and subtle flavours to keep the competition lively and exciting.

5. The Pairing Pentathlon

Explore the art of chocolate pairing with beverages. Set up stations where guests can experiment with matching Rococo Chocolates to teas and coffees. Provide guidelines on how to find complementary and contrasting flavours. 

This activity not only enhances the tasting experience but also educates on the nuances of flavour pairing.

Pro Tip: Offer a range of beverage options, from rich espressos to fragrant teas. We do not recommend pairing Champagne as it dries the mouth and prevents the tastebuds from enjoying chocolate.

Celebrating the Winners

Conclude your Chocolate Olympics with a medal ceremony. Award prizes for categories such as the best flavour identifier, the top aroma detector, and the most creative taster.

Rococo Chocolates make perfect rewards for the winners, ensuring everyone leaves with a smile.
