How To Choose the Perfect Chocolate in Every Situation

Chocolate alone is delicious. Chocolate with the perfect pairing is even better. That’s why we’ve put together a list of the best chocolate pairings for your next indulgence. Check out these combinations, from the classics to the unexpected, and find the perfect pairing to satisfy your sweet tooth. 

Matcha and Milk Chocolate 

Matcha and Milk Chocolate

Matcha is a strong green tea made from finely ground green tea leaves and is a perfect match for milk chocolate. The savoury flavours of Matcha pairs perfectly with milk chocolate’s sweetness. 


Cheese and Chocolate 

Cheese and Chocolate

Yes, really! Try a bitter, dark chocolate with a stronger cheese, like camembert, for a more savoury pairing, or goat cheese, brie, or parmesan with sweeter chocolates.  


Wine and Chocolate 

Wine and Chocolate

Between all the different varieties of chocolate and wines, the pairings are endless. You can’t go wrong with dark chocolate and a full-bodied red wine, like a pinot noir – the bitterness of the dark chocolate brings out the fruity notes of red wines. Or, try a sweet white wine, like a moscato or prosecco with a sweeter milk chocolate. 


Beer and Chocolate 

Beer and Chocolate

Slightly more unconventional than wine and chocolate, the malty notes of a beer can pair unexpectedly well with the mellow notes of cocoa. Try a stout with a dark chocolate but avoid bitter beers.  


Tea and Chocolate

Tea and Chocolate

The perfect afternoon break or cosy treat for a rainy Sunday, try milk chocolate with caramel and an English Breakfast Tea. Herbal teas also pair well with mint chocolate or try a sweeter fruit tea with white chocolate.
