Cocoa Rouge and Colonial Wine to hold tasting event

Cocoa Rouge, the Arkansas chocolate company founded by Ashton Woodward of Arkansas Fresh Bakery fame is hosting a chocolate and wine tasting even at Colonial Wine and Spirits from 4 p.m. - 7 p.m. on Feb. 11. Woodward told me last time we talked that his goal was to create a box of chocolates where nobody would have to worry about what they were picking out — unlike the mainstream boxes, Cocoa Rouge seems to avoid filling their chocolates with gritty fruit creams and toothpaste. These are high-end, lovingly made chocolates, and this event is going to be a lot of fun.

For more on Cocoa Rouge, check out the video we did with Camp Friday Films — it's a fascinating look at a local business that has elevated Arkansas food.
