Easter Candy and Wine Pairing

Off the wall suggestions for your Easter basket

Yogurt Pretzels

I find yogurt-covered anything reminiscent of white chocolate. Either that, or my taste buds are out of whack as I plow through my Easter basket. Either way, these purple and pink striped gems provided more than just a pretty view.

Rueda - The sweet/salty factor really enhances the suppleness of the wine and lengthens the finish.

Rosé - If you are going to drink pink while hiding those eggs, this is the way to go. I even went to the extent of describing this pink, purple and white pairing “divine.”

Bubbly - Surprisingly, the sweet/salty factor was not friendly to the bubbly. Too many textures and levels of sweetness going on here.

You might also try: A moderately sweet wine, such as Moscato. The salt of the pretzel will help cut the sweetness of dessert or sweet wines.

    Haha sour candy and wine pairing sounds like a good challenge to take up.

    All chocolate with Jerez or Montilla Pedro Ximenes (PX).
    Dark chocolate with Port LBV.

    Jam Jar Sweet Shiraz?? It's a great wine for people trying to break the Moscato habit, and it's pretty good with spicier things, but even the thought of chocolates or Peeps with this makes me cringe. (grit teeth and shiver)
