For the longest time I’ve been curious about Godiva’s chocolate liqueur, but couldn’t see myself justifying the $30 price tag they come with. This isn’t so much because of the beverage itself, but because of what other drinks I could mix it with in my collection (or lack thereof). So I took the sampler’s route and bought a 50 milliliter bottle of the regular chocolate and white chocolate flavors.
It’s been a long time since I had Godiva chocolate, but given their name and reputation, this should be an interesting treat. The bottles look nice, dark and elegant, almost like some high-class chocolate syrup. Sometimes a really nice bottle is all it takes to catapult my attention.
Aesthetically, the regular chocolate variant looks like perfect chocolate milk, complete with a silky appearance and almost irish cream-like scent. As I take an initial sip, the burn from the alcohol faintly lingers about my throat while the chocolate flavor gives off a mild personality. The burn comes up more as I work my way, but becomes nonexistent on the finish. I can’t help but think of irish cream mixed with chocolate syrup while I finish what little I have. This is definitely something that could stand on its own as a post-dinner drink, like eggnog except you’re not limited to one time of the year.
