A sweet afternoon of chocolate and wine
By Jillian Chandler
Studies have shown that chocolate, in moderation of course, can have health benefits! So, if you were concerned you might not be able to take advantage of this year’s Chocolate Affair due to your 2022 health goals, there’s nothing to worry about. Enjoy that chocolate while reaping the health benefits. It is said to be a rich source of vitamin B12, niacin, riboflavin and vitamin E, as well as minerals such as zinc, and even antioxidants!
The Coeur d’Alene Downtown Association presents this annual tasting event each February, with this year’s Chocolate Affair scheduled for Saturday, February 5. Bundle up and head downtown from 1 to 5pm, where your tasting adventure will take you to participating businesses, each featuring their own unique and delicious creation for you to savor.
Tickets are priced at just $15 per person and include a decadent chocolate-inspired tasting from each participating location. For just $10 more ($25 per ticket), why not pair your chocolate with another healthy choice—wine! Tickets can be purchased on the Coeur d’Alene Downtown Association’s website at CdADowntown.com/event; click on The Chocolate Affair. Check-in will take place at the Coeur d’Alene Visitor Center, located at 105 North First Street, Suite 100, on the corner of First and Sherman Avenue.

An afternoon of chocolate and wine is just the answer to warm you up on a cold winter afternoon and a wonderful way to celebrate Valentine’s Day a bit early. Don’t miss out!
