These are our suggestions to make the most of your tasting experience:
Smell both the chocolate and the cheese first before tasting.
We found that tasting the cheese first worked better than the reverse.
We recommend a small bite of cheese and then a small bite of chocolate to start, chew some, then take another small bite of cheese.

Pairing these two tastes provides a wonderfully flavorful experience. Seriously Sharp has a sour, tangy flavor which pairs perfectly with the tartness of our 70% Dark Chocolate with Raspberries. The bright raspberry flavor is exactly what is needed to balance the slightly bitter notes of the cheese.
Opposites attract when pairing the furiously fiery & bold flavor of the Hot Habanero; this profile works best with our smooth Milk Chocolate. The sweetness of the chocolate mellows the spiciness of the cheese, creating a pleasurable balance of flavors. It’s a truly satisfying pairing of sweet & savory.
Cabot has created an ideal comfort food-- rich, smoky bacon with the World’s Best Cheddar. In order to enhance the sizzling, smoky flavor everyone loves, Smoky Bacon works best with a bar boasting a high cocoa content. Our luxuriously rich 85% Dark Chocolate fits the bill perfectly, with a dark and sweet flavor that compliments this cheese in a way you'll love.
Have some left over Milk Chocolate but want to cool off your mouth after that Hot Habanero cheese pairing? Use Divine Milk Chocolate to pair with this smooth and nutty flavored cheese to enjoy something a bit simpler. Cabot's popular mild-mannered cheese brings out the Milk Chocolate's soft and creamy texture to create a classic combo.
Cabot’s Alpine Blend has been aged to creamy, nutty perfection. Pairing this cheese with our Dark Chocolate with Whole Almonds accentuates both foods' nutty flavor profiles. When combined, the taste of this cheese and chocolate seems at once familiar and also completely unique.
