I was initially more than a little doubtful about the very concept of a chocolate martini, partially because I rather like both the traditional gin and vermouth martini and the vodka martini. I thought of martinis as a savory, not a dessert. But then I tried a chocolate martini in 2008, at a hotel bar. I liked it; it was very clearly more of a dessert than a cocktail, but it was chocolate. I've since experimented with chocolate martinis and have engaged in diligent research on your behalf.

Ghirardelli seems to be maneuvering itself into position competing with Dove for the market of "small daily indulgences." It is a robust market - just ask Starbucks. We think, "I deserve a treat!
