Chocolate Eggs

Cadbury Chocolate Crème Egg and Reese's Peanut Butter Egg

Rueda - Thank goodness I picked you! Once again this really lessened the artificiality and made the waxiness of the Cadbury Egg manageable. The addition of peanut butter to the mix with the Reese's did not fare well with the wine, leaving an overly dry sensation.

Rosé - If you try this with a Cadbury Chocolate Creme Egg at home, plan on some heavy drinking afterwards to wash down the taste. The Reese's Egg is a winning match for the Rosé (at last!). I love how the fruit stands out with the creaminess and nuttiness of the Reese's peanut butter.

Sweet Shiraz - Was not a match for Cadbury on any level. The fruit and jamminess overpowered the fluffy, creamy peanut butter filling of the Reese's Egg as well.

Bubbly - Visions of chocolate covered strawberries entered my mind with the Cadbury egg, so this match gets my approval. Peanut butter was also approved but definitely didn't conjure up such delicious visions.

You might also try: A young Banyuls with the Cadbury Creme. A sweet madeira like Boal or Malmsey that will highlight the savoriness of the Reese's Egg.

Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate Crisp and Coconut Crisp Eggs

The balance of creamy milk chocolate and subtle texture on both eggs make them too good to pair with most wine. However, you might want to try a Banyuls or Ruby Port.

    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)
