The Chocolate Affair: A chocolicious experience

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - People of all ages enjoyed the finest of both chocolate and Easter at the San Diego Maritime Museum.

This was the first year of The Chocolate Affair.

Children took part in carnival games, scavenger hunts, and do-it-yourself chocolate pizza making.

For adults, the event had beer and wine pairings to bring out the flavors of their favorite chocolates.

"We've paired three beers and three wines with six different chocolates and you kind of combine the tastes in our mouth at the same time and it brings out the flavor of both," Director of Public Events San Diego Maritime Museum, Robyn Gallant said.

The event is part of the San Diego Maritime Museums "History of Chocolate" exhibit on the Star of India that chronicles how chocolate came to the united states.
